About Us

COVID-19 update

We can’t meet in person right now, so we will be meeting every Tuesday at 11:15 via Zoom!

We will have most of the familiar TWT activities plus we will be creating action teams on topics that are most important to us! Bring your ideas and your singing voices (signs optional.) See you on Tuesday!

If you can’t make our zoom meetings,  please sign up for our tiny letter and follow us on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.  We will also post here when we resume normal marches.  Please stay healthy and we will see you all in person soon!


Our Protests

Tuesdays with Tillis is a progressive grassroots community that protests peacefully every Tuesday at the Terry Sanford Federal Building in Raleigh. We are part of the Indivisible network. Our group is non-partisan but we share an interest in progressive leaders, bold policies, and a desire to work to improve our democracy.  Our weekly protests serve as a moral witness to Senator Tillis’ policies and his indifference to those he serves.

 

Our Community

Tuesdays with Tillis members believe that what we do at this point in history matters. We believe that the truth is important and that our democracy is worth defending. Our members love to take action, so you will find us involved in much of the hands-on work in many other local groups. In addition to our weekly protest, we co-sponsor events, lobby, canvas and march all over the triangle. If you feel overwhelmed by what you are reading in the news, a Tuesdays with Tillis event is a great place to connect with a community that is working to help our neighbors and improve our democracy.

The Details

Tuesdays with Tillis works with different progressive groups each week to bring attention to important issues.  Our events page lists the topic each week.  You are welcome to create a sign or use one of ours. While you are with us, be sure to sign our weekly letter to Senator Tillis. We are also proud that The Raging Grannies have been part of our protest movement since the beginning. We always have great speakers, singing, marching and a feeling of community.
