Rhode Island is standing up to resist Donald Trump.
The only way to protect our communities from the threats posed by the Trump regime is to come together and fight.
We know this time in our history calls upon us to do more than we have done, to go beyond our place of comfort, and to challenge ourselves to confront the real dangers at hand for our values, our neighbors, our planet and our democracy. We must confront old systems of oppression just as vigorously as we push back against new threats. Many in Resist Hate have worked directly on these issues for many decades; others are new to this work. All are welcome.
Join us to get plugged in. Find out how you can use your voice to not just say no to Trump, but get active to build a more just and more inclusive state, country and world.
