The Past, Present, and Future of Resist
Resist is approaching our 50th anniversary. We are so very proud of our history, our founders, and all of the truly brave grassroots groups that started and propelled social movements across the country for the past five decades.
Against incredible odds, we have resisted war, occupation, capitalism, corporate globalization, environmental destruction, prisons, borders, racism, classism, and patriarchy.
We hope our new site stirs up emotions from all of the beautiful and moving moments of the past, and now, also looks to our collective future. We know another world is possible – but only if we build it from the ground up.
We have a new logo, a new website, and a new domain at resist.org. The new website better reflects who we are by placing the groups that are the heart and soul of Resist at the center of the site. By highlighting their work, their struggles, and their victories, the site is now a direct link to the frontlines of grassroots movements across the country.
One of the many reasons we at Resist love what we do is because of the window it provides us to the beautiful, inspiring, and creative actions that are taking place in every corner of the country. Our new website and look are meant to share that window with you and help connect people who care about this work and the world.
A special thanks to the worker-owned cooperative Quilted for all of their work helping us with the design of the new logo and the development of the website.
And thank you for all of your support over the years. We look forward to creating this new world with you!
Saif Rahman is the director of communications at Resist and the editor of the Newsletter.
