Our mission is to make it simply irresistible to engage in our democracy. We will serve up four concrete acts of resistance each week for the next four years.
To make it simply irresistible for Americans to become active participants in rebuilding our democracy.
AMELIA MIAZAD is an Afghan-born American girl (no birth certificate folks, you’ll just have to trust her) who became even more true-blue after the November 8th election. Amelia has a law degree from Berkeley Law. In addition to practicing law, Amelia has founded non-profits and led higher educational programs, initiatives, and social enterprises. An eternal optimist, Amelia believes in the power of collective action and looks forward to building the wall-of-us together.
Amelia’s role is strategic vision and content development.
KARA GANTER grew up in rural Wisconsin, where it is not polite to talk about politics and the most appropriate way to deal with feelings is crying in the shower. When that stopped working post-election, she decided an alternate coping strategy was necessary. She’s a lawyer, a writer, and a technophile. Kara has journalism and law degrees from the University of Wisconsin and she’s trained in instructional design, educational technology and pedagogy. Now she puts all those tools to work to help build programs to train the next generation of leaders in law and social justice.
Kara’s role is creative vision, web design, and operations – because even a website about resisting ugly policies should be pretty.
We are fortunate to have advisors and volunteers who are leaders in law, policy, technology, government, media, and education.
A NOTE FROM US
The first woman to have won the majority of votes for President of the United States recently said,
Our constitutional democracy, our world, and our planet are all under siege. All-of-us must build a big, beautiful wall of resistance.
