Together We Can Keep Us Safe
On Saturday, November 14th, thousands of Trump supporters, Proud Boys, militia members, and white nationalists converged on Washington DC for the "Millions for MAGA" rally.

For months, police have brutally attacked protests for racial justice under the guise of protecting "life and property," yet when the far-right carries out violence and destruction, they deem it acceptable.
The Proud Boys are directly connected with white nationalist groups and the Trump campaign. Enrique Tarrio is the Florida director for Latinos for Trump and the Proud Boys have done security at Trump rallies. The Proud Boys also played a key role in the deadly Unite the Right protests in Charlottesville.
During the presidential debates, Trump told the Proud Boys to "stand back and stand by." This message was seen emblazoned on the shirts of rioting Proud Boys on the night of the 14th. One thing is clear: the Proud Boys believe that Trump has given them a green light to engage in violence against Trump's enemies.
With Biden's electoral victory seemingly solidified, many clearly feel the struggle against fascism is over. Yet it is clear that Trump will continue to build a fascist movement around him - with groups like the Proud Boys as his frontline soldiers. The need to build a robust and broad anti-fascist movement is more urgent than ever.
