Hello SCOA group,


Though I'm quite new and not an Organizer here, I am sending out this E-mail to everyone so they can contact http://www.meetup.com...­ and let them know how they feel about their #resist campaign. My view is that no matter who you politically support, a company like this has NO business pushing a certain political view on it's members (as well as fee paying organizers & members alike) and, personally, I would like them to get their #resist banner off our group pages. ­Meetup Corp @ FaceBook openly promotes #RESIST


FROM MEETUP CORPORATE PAGE: Meetup to #Resist

For almost 15 years, Meetup has served as an organizing platform for a wide range of political parties and movements, welcoming everyone from the Howard Deaniacs to the Tea Party. “We’re vital plumbing for democracy,” we always said. Before today, our company had never taken a partisan stance. It’s not a decision we take lightly.

But after Donald Trump’s order to block people on the basis of nationality and religion, a line had been crossed. At a time when core democratic ideals felt under attack, we looked at our members’ response, and were inspired by ­Meetups like SF Resist. We felt a duty to spark more activity and broaden civic participation.

As champions of democracy, equality, human rights, social justice, and sustainability, more people (than ever!) are ready to organize, take to the streets, visit town hall meetings, pick up the phone, paint signs, and huddle to make their voices heard.

We are Meetup, dammit! We needed to act.

So last week we stopped normal operations for a company-wide hackathon (a “resist-a-thon”) to help people get involved.


We created 1,000+ #Resist Meetup Groups ($90,000 value at NO COST to liberal political activist groups) to act as local hubs for these actions.

•We launched 1,000+ #Resist Meetup Groups, free for everyone
•We’re announcing them to our 30 million members
•We made key product changes enabling anyone to schedule local Meetups
•We partnered with leading organizations to distribute their ideas for making change

We’re not operating alone:

We’re relying on members to take this forward (anyone can show up, anyone can step up). And we’re lucky to have partners including Planned Parenthood, the Women’s March, the Anti-Defamation League, Amnesty International, the Human Rights Campaign and many others who are contributing to our library of ideas for making change.

Meetup exists to create welcoming spaces where people can connect. We look forward to seeing the positive impact from these Meetups when those connections happen.

Find a Meetup near you, and get involved.
Find a meetup to #Resist!



If you agree that this partisan political activism by 'meetup' corporate factions is not to be tolerated by anyone here, regardless of alliance or allegiance, please contact them at:

ATTN: 30 MILLION Meetup.com members (and Organizers) were E-mailed this week with their press release announcement regarding #Resist meetups cropping up all over. The Anti-Trump tirade of the EXTREME LIBERAL LEFTIST ACTIVISTS continues. HORRIBLE !!
