#ReflectAndResist supplemental resource: @radicalbrowniesmovie This short documentary follows the @radicalmonarchs, an Oakland-based alternative to the girl scouts whose founders were "inspired by the legacies of social justice movements and the desire to create a space centered on the development of young girls of color...to empower and nurture their strength." Link to the full 21-minute movie is on our facebook page!

For Action #5 of @womensmarch 10Actions/100Days campaign, we have come together to #ReflectAndResist with our families + communities. It's been AMAZING to hear the questions my 6 year old Penny asks when we read The Youngest Marcher, a beautifully written & illustrated children's book about Audrey Faye Hendricks, an inspiring young civil rights activist from Birmingham, Alabama who successfully resisted the unjust law of segregation in May 1963 through participating in The Children's March. So excited to build a rich, inclusive library to share with both my daughters as they grow.

Yesterday we launched the fifth action in our 10 Actions / 100 Days campaign for @womensmarch: #ReflectAndResist

"Action 5 is designed to educate some, and refresh others, through study, reflection, and courageous conversations, so that we can all be empowered by, and learn from, the work of activists who came before us, while being mindful not to perpetuate the mistakes of the past. Community is key to activism, so bring your huddles, neighbors, and your march partners back together, collectively choose a book or article to read, or film to watch. Take time to reflect and, together, discuss the topics that they highlight and the issues that women experiencing multiple forms of oppression have faced and continue to face."

These are some of my favorites but I wanna make a conscious effort to find more books written by women of color. ✊🏾

Phones out everyone. 5calls.org and resistbot.io make it easy.
They are hoping you don't speak up about Medicaid or the Supreme Court smash and grab, so make your voices heard. #ReflectAndResist

I made a video with the footage I shot at the D.C. Women's March for 4th Estate Media. We're posting it as part of the #ReflectAndResist action for the 10 Actions in 100 Days movement.
Reignite your resolve and do not grow tired. Watch the full video on the 4th Estate YouTube channel. Link in bio

So amazing to squeeze around this big table with such fantastic women last night... #reflectandresist

Today I #reflectandresist back to my first protest. November 12, 2016. The Saturday after the Election. Not My President March in NYC. I was headed downtown to be at the protest. I gathered a frew friends in the neighborhood that I hadn't talked to in a while. We all went down and marched to Trump Tower. That was the beginning of something new. .

“One Bad Apple” by Amanda O’Donoughue

This image by the talented @the_river_is_deep is easy on the eyes, but don’t be fooled, it carries a might message. We sent a bad apple to the White House, plain and simple. You know what happens to perfect apples if they spend even a little time next to a bad one? They rot. It seems just so in Washington with one rotten idea after another. That’s why we RESIST, because we have never sent someone so clownish and self-serving to the White House. A bad apple indeed.

Set I postcards still available. Set II submissions due May 1 on our website (in the profile). #dumptrump #notmypresident #postcardsfromtheresistance #resistwithrosemary #womensmarch #istandwithplannedparenthood #resist #trustwomen #supportart #strongertogether #artifactuprising #standwithpp, #carenomatterwhat #healthcare #compassion, #womenshealthmatters #myvoicematters #speak #persist #reflectandresist #signofresistance #artmatters #artheals #riseup #resistwithart #supportthearts #artifactuprising

So yesterday, I spent the day talking about healthy relationships to high schoolers 😱it was exhausting, but actually really rewarding. I had the chance to inform young women about how to build healthy relationships, the signs of abuse in relationships, sexual assault prevention, and gender equitable messaging. I saw and felt fire 🔥 from these girls when we talked about the negative messages society and culture use to dismiss the harassing and violent actions of boys and men, "boys will be boys". 😡😡😡Or the message to victim blame women when we say "good girls don't -----" or "good girls do ----" society fills in the blank with anything to create a narrative that does not hold perpetrators accountable. Even as sophomores and juniors, I knew their were survivors and victims in the room. I knew when we talked about the examples of the different types of abuse, that some of them had already experienced these abuses. I knew that they felt that they wouldn't be believed if they told someone because they told me so. We have to do more for our girls and women in our community, we cannot just think that this doesn't happen because we live in a close-net, "good" Muslim community. Let's build a healthy community by talking about issues of gender violence, but also economic justice, access to healthcare, reproductive rights, equitable rights, economic justice, systematic racism and those intersections that marginalize women, girls, and especially women of color 👩🏻👩🏼👩🏽👩🏾👩🏿. #BreaktheSilence #TalkToYoungPeople #Listen #TrustGirls #TrustWomen #BelieveSurvivors #SAAM #EndSH #EndSV #WhyIResist #WhyWeResist #WomensRights #GenderJustice #ReflectAndResist #GenderEquity #Feminism #MuslimFeminist #MuslimGirl #SupportWOC

Read this article by Leslie Jamison in the latest @harpersmagazine Read it if you marched, read if you felt excluded from the march, read it if you're not sure your resistance efforts are amounting to anything post march. #harpers #womensmarch #intersectionality #

Rise Up! Look what I found in the international terminal at BWI. The resistance earned itself a special Condé Nast commemorative edition. #airplanereading #staywoke

My packaging buddy. Not sure what Ralph is up to these days. This image of him is at least 17 years old, because that is when my roommate taped him to my tape dispenser. Son of immigrants, crusader for the environment, for regulation to protect consumers and to reform the government, there's no doubt where he would stand on this administration. Nader's activism has been directly credited with the passage of several landmark pieces of American consumer protection legislation including the Clean Water Act and the Freedom of Information Act. I like to think that he'd appreciate the postcards that are making there way around the country. #RalphNader #sorrymykidsscribbledyourface #needmoreRalphs #act #activism #AmericanHero

Day 77: I took a nap, made dinner, and read some of the newest copy of the Atlantic. I've been out of the journalism loop and my backlog is growing... #reflectandresist

How are you using your POSTCARDS FROM THE RESISTANCE? Melissa D has been sending them to voters in Georgia's 6th District in an effort to get out the Democratic vote in the most-watched congressional race so far since the national election. Jon Ossoff is seeking to fill the seat vacated by newly appointed Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price.
Buoyed by a major fundraising effort and national grassroots support, Ossoff has turned his race in a traditionally Republican stronghold into tossup. If he wins outright next week or in the runoff in June, Ossoff will capture a House of Representatives seat held by Republicans since 1979, one of 24 seats Democrats need nationwide to reclaim the House.

Many see this election as the first big test of Democrats’ ability to capitalize on anti-Trump fervor and there's no question that resistance efforts are playing a key role in the success of his campaign. Go, little postcards, go!

Getting some different perspectives on feminism has been very enlightening #10Actions100Days #ReflectandResist #womensmarch

March by Katy Tuttle \ @katytuttle

For so many, resistance started with the Women’s March - with peaceful, powerful protest all over the country. We three were in DC, Oakland, and Rhode Island. And so many of you were there too with your feet or your hearts. Naysayers predicted that our energy would fizzle, but that’s not what we see. Marching turned a spark into a fire and daily shenanigans from this administration keep us motivated to persist in our resistance. Keep marching out there - to the voting booth for local elections, to the mail box with a postcard, to wherever your heart begs you to go.

What is resistance? Maybe it's marching. Maybe it's organizing around a specific issue. Maybe it's writing a check. Maybe it's showing up at your member of Congress's office. Maybe it's a letter or a card to them about what's important to you. Maybe it's an extra smile you give because you know the world need more of that right now. Maybe it's cheering on others who also feel called to act in many different forms.

And, maybe (hopefully) it's sitting in your home at night catching up on HBO's Girls, wrapping oodles of postcard sets. Maybe it's tying them up with rosemary because you know these packages are all going to good people and you hope the smell and pop of green with mean something to those good people and they will use that little spark of energy to do more even good.
