RESISTING: WEEK FOUR

Instead of sharing ideas for resisting this week, I thought I'd highlight a few of those who are resisting and the work they're doing. It's so simple for you to watch, follow, and support those who are committed to making a difference. In doing so, you'll be voicing your desire for change and standing behind those using their platforms for good, enabling them to do more.



THE DAILY SHOW

If you aren't already watching Trevor Noah, you should be. Full episodes and clips are available online if you can't tune in.

JOHN OLIVER

The same goes for John Oliver on Last Week Tonight. You can find clips here.

5 CALLS

5calls.org provides scripts and phone numbers for your representatives on key issues. One of the hardest things about making calls is knowing what to say. They do all of the work for you. Well, except make the call. 

ROGUE AND ALT TWITTER ACCOUNTS

I'm not complaining that the National Parks Service is at the forefront of the resistance. Others have joined suit- @roguePOTUSstaff is one to follow; as are the Alt Treasury, Alt Department of Labor, Alt Department of Justice, Alt Department of Education, and Alt Department of State accounts.

ALL THE MAKERS 

Those who are making shirts, buttons, embroidery - whatever- in the name of resisting are worth supporting. Moreso if the shops are run by women, people of color, or immigrants. And if they donate a portion of their proceeds to worthy organizations? Even more of a bonus.
