We’re Not Waiting for Those in Power to do What’s Right

Dear Resister,
Four years ago, Resist grantee United Fort Worth (UFW)1 was a small group of concerned neighbors meeting in a rented back room at their town church. Today, with the help of donors like you, they’re a progressive grassroots powerhouse tackling injustice in all its forms.
I’m telling you about UFW because they prove how incredibly impactful your support of Resist is.
UFW exemplifies what neighbors can achieve when we come together to dismantle discriminatory policies that exist right within our own communities. Tackling white supremacy isn’t something we just do at the federal and state levels—it happens on Main St. at home too.
Since Biden took office, an estimated 30,000 immigrants have been deported despite a campaign promise to the contrary. Children are still being separated from relatives at the border and inhospitable facilities have been reopened. The human “cages” haven’t gone away—they’ve just been rebranded.
You know as well as I do that waiting for those in power to do what’s right simply doesn’t work. What does work is an effective network of grassroots activists fighting for the rights of the most marginalized among us.
And your support of Resist keeps that network strong.
