ACT

Actions will in many cases need to be bigger and bolder than what we are used to. Making donations, participating in marches and contacting our representatives in Congress (if we have them!) are all vitally important. But from immigration to climate change to women’s rights to racial and religious discrimination, the threats we are facing are more profound and more personal than many of us have confronted in our lifetimes. We need to show we mean business. That is why we call our group NOPE! – Neighbors Organizing for Power & Equality. We embrace Barbara Kingsolver’s declaration in a recent op-ed: “We refuse to disappear.”
