Last week, we let you know you could expect a weekly action alert from us with ways to act. Here it is. Now is the time to RESIST the hate the Trump administration is putting forward and to build the world we BELIEVE in. Already we have seen the President’s quick action to dismantle progressive gains made at the national level and instill fear, division, and cynicism across the country. And while there will be more damaging and divisive actions to come in the next 100 days, we refuse to give in.
You’re a part resisting and believing. And here are five ways you can act right now.
READY TO ACT IN ST. CLOUD?

On Thursday, 2/7 join the Intergovernmental Relations Committee of the Minneapolis City Council for an official presentation about the recent Presidential executive orders impacting immigrants and refugees.

We know that our fear and cynicism will not build the movement we need, our creativity and organizing will.
