Prior to her resignation, she launched this petition. Sign it. Then REPLY here to tell us you did. It's a tiny way to move beyond just talking.
There's little chance that this will keep the choir away from the inauguration, but it would be great to show lots and lots of support for acts of conscience such as this.
The started with a goal of 25,000. Then 30,000. Now they need 15,000 to reach 50,000.

"I believe it is right and proper for an organization that purports to follow the teachings of Jesus to not show support for persons or institutions that are purposely antithetical to these teachings. Especially if they embrace violence, racism, misogyny and generally taking advantage of other people.
Chamberlin's message and didn't find it.

that many of the doctrines and practices of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints are the antithesis of everything Jesus Christ stood for. It's not just Trump.
No one should be forced to throw roses for Hitler. The LDS Church should not take actions which appear to approve or support Trump and his values.
Even if the choir goes to the inauguration, there's a message here.
