Because this country is in the middle of a political rollercoaster and because it is also a country blessed with free speech and diversity of opinion, there is an enormous amount of opportunity to become engaged in civic action. This was true before the election, but since Trump was inaugurated opportunities to become involved are literally everywhere. The opposition is beautiful but logistically, it’s an overwhelming nightmare.
Cue: The Resistance Calendar a crowd-sourced platform with local actions from all 50 states going on that day. Hear of a protest in your town? Add it to the calendar! Looking for a group to join to protest Trump’s latest executive order? Check the calendar!
No matter where you are, people are updating this calendar to reflect real-time opportunities for protest and demonstration. I love the internet.
