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."

We also plan to be a part of National RESIST day by distributing stickers with the RESIST symbol (similar to the “I voted” sticker). This way everyone can be a part of National RESIST Day even at work, school, or their communities. Please visit www.resistsymbol.com/sticker to get free stickers and/or to distribute them to your friends/family or in your local community.
