“… we only ask, that when we stand up and talk about one nation under God, liberty,
justice for everybody, we only want to be able to look at the flag, put our right
hand over our hearts, repeat those words and know that they are true.”
– Barbara Jordan
On this fourth of July, we at Resist reflect on this nation’s promise to its citizens: the right to “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.” A promise that has been broken time and time again as those most impacted by oppression are restricted to the margins of society – bereft of resources, options, and hope. And today is no different.
Our worst fears are being realized.
Emboldened by Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation, right-wing lawmakers are introducing anti-abortion legislature with the explicit goal of overturning Roe v. Wade… and denying all people of their reproductive rights.
We knew this fight was coming. Which is why, thanks to you, our grantees are at clinics, schools, community centers, and in the streets fighting misinformation and prejudice at every turn.
Now we need you and every other Resister to express the full magnitude of your disgust
and outrage today because the Trump agenda is as ugly as it gets.
We need to raise $135,000 by July 31st to make sure that our grantees hold
strong in these hostile times; that they protect the rights of all people,
especially those living on the edge.
