A lot of the stuff I write about in my #ResistTrump posts is cribbed from an assortment of handy newsletters offering ideas for resistance and information on protests and other events worth knowing about. Here are the five I’ve found the most useful.
Wall of Us: This newsletter/website offers what it calls FOUR CONCRETE ACTS OF RESISTANCE
DELIVERED TO YOUR INBOX EACH WEEK, and that it does.
Make it Better — A weekly newsletter co-written by feminist author/activist (and friend of WHTM) Jaclyn Friedman. Offers specific suggestions for activism, links to good reads, inspiration, and jokes.
actionnow — An almost-daily newsletter providing suggestions for activism and occasional pep talks.
Resistable — A regular roundup of upcoming real-world protests across the US and sometimes elsewhere.
Signal Boost — A newsletter designed to, well, signal boost “the great work being done in the resistance.”
And while it isn’t a newsletter, one of the handiest resources for those who want to resist Trump in a practical way every single day (or a couple of times a week maybe?), 5Calls.org gives you some suggestions and scripts to make it as easy as possible to call your elected officials.
Have I missed any? I probably missed some. So add your suggestions in the comments.
Oh, and if you want to gloat a bit more about the truly pathetic pro-Trump rallies held yesterday, check out this roundup on Raw Story, complete with EXCITING ACTION PHOTOS of Trump supporters sitting on lawn chairs.
EDIT: And of course I forgot one: the very useful almost-daily Resist newsletter from writer and activist Talia Lavin.
