About MCAT

Mission Statement

Our mission is to build a broad and organized resistance led by a coalition of grassroots organizations to stop Trump and his hateful agenda.

We will organize to prevent attacks on women, immigrants, African Americans, Arabs, Muslims, Jews, Native Americans, LGBTQ people, poor and working people, refugees, people with disabilities, all other oppressed people, and our planet.

We are actively working to bring about an end to the rule of Wall Street and white supremacy. We want a society based on the principles of freedom and self-determination, where basic human needs like education, healthcare, employment, food, and shelter are met for all people. We want a society where all people can participate in democracy and live in safety, peace and equality.
