Eggers previously launched a similar effort called 90 days, 90 reasons, which was used to motivate voters to re-elect President Obama. 30 Days 30 Nights describes its mission as follows on its “About” page:
“As artists, we are united in our desire to speak out against Donald Trump’s ignorant, confrontational and hateful campaign. We will not be fooled by Mr. Trump’s rhetorical contortions, his flattery, his lies and his false promises. He has repeatedly shown the content of his character, and the very fact of his candidacy is a bane to the nation. His words incite hatred and celebrate iniquity. Most disturbing of all, over the past year the country has hardened itself to the imposing baseness of its rhetoric and actions, its attacks on women, Mexican-Americans, Muslims and the disabled.
