It’s true. This Friday, January 20th, Donald Trump will take the Oath of Office. But don’t worry--that is not how our story will end. On January 20th and beyond all-of-us will take and live our own oath to “protect, preserve, and defend the Constitution.”
Take The Oath was created by a group of film, television and theater producers, directors and actors: Dustin Lance Black, Bruce Cohen, Tara Smith, Kaily Smith Westbrook, and Schele Williams. This is not a dress rehearsal--they are asking everyone to join wall-of-us in Taking the Oath on Inauguration Day. But that’s just the beginning. We must each write the post-inauguration chapters of our own stories by living The Oath and taking action.
And collectively, that’s called a movement.
Our story will not be about one man. It will be about a movement of all-of-us.
1. Raise your right hand.
2. Say these words (and mean them): "I do solemnly swear that I will faithfully execute my role as an American, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”
3. Share your Oath. #OathTaken/#TakeTheOath/#WallofUs. If you need a little inspiration, here are some social media examples.
