I just got this email from Deray McKesson, and I have found my new project. I hope some of you will join, too.


Today, we launch the Resistance Manual -- an open-source platform to collect information/resources to resist Trump's agenda & to continue making progress towards equity and justice in America.

Explore the manual to learn about the policies the incoming administration plans to pursue, how they'll impact our communities, and what you can do to stop them through federal, state, and local advocacy.

You can also find and contribute essential readings in resistance, learn and contribute information about policy issues in your state, and view a growing list of tools and organizations that can help to strengthen your advocacy efforts.

The manual will grow over time as more and more people contribute updates, facts and resources to it. As such, we encourage you to contribute important information for others to read.

If you would like to assist us in growing the content within the Resistance Manual, please reply to this e-mail directly. [The email came from deray at thisisthemovement dot org, but the wiki recommends info@staywoke.org as a contact address.]

We also urge you to dial (844)-6-RESIST to tell Congress to support the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) and to vote against Jeff Sessions.

Get educated. Get organized. Take Action.

// DeRay, Netta, Brittany, & Sam

P.S. Shout-out to Chi/Donahoe for assisting with Design.

Y'all are fortunate to live in California. Your state is big enough to take up most of the slack when the federal government stops doing its job. Hell, California is big enough to be viable as its own sovereign nation, if push came to shove. By comparison, my dear Commonwealth of Massachusetts will shrivel up and die when federal funding for everything from Medicare and public housing to highway maintenance gets cut off. We have only two industries of any size here: health care and education. Both are heavily dependent on people spending vast amounts of money they don't have. When those subsidies get cut, the economy of greater Boston will crash and burn, taking most of New England down with it.

Trump won't care; we're a blue state in a blue region. We are going to be seriously screwed.
