Join in on National RESIST Day wherever you are located (Thursday January 19th, the day before inauguration). RESIST in any peaceful way you can, online or in person. Wear a RESIST Symbol sticker to work or organize an event in your local community to connect with other Resistors. Be creative! 

Even just being very active online that day (promoting a peaceful message to RESIST) is helpful too. 

Big or small, all your actions count!

Why RESIST on January 19th? 

We want to send a loud message to the incoming administration as they get ready to be sworn into office: “approach the next term with caution, because there are millions of people across the country that will RESIST any and all attacks on progress and democracy.” 

A Resistor in our Facebook page posted this below, which perfectly captured the spirit of National Resist Day: 

"Americans should hold a national day of protest (peaceful) on January 19. Anyone who doesn’t support Donald Trump should show the country as well as the whole world how they feel.

Imagine if the whole world saw how many Americans are truly concerned with this newly elected president. Imagine the message this would send to all the citizens of the world and to all of the “others” in our country who feel threatened by Trump’s racist, sexist, xenophobic rhetoric."
