Sad Birthday Trump Protest

On Wednesday, June 13th, Rise and Resist will be delivering Trump's birthday present to Trump Tower in NYC - one way plane tickets to Russia. Sign his birthday card now, and tell him why you want him out of the Presidency, and out of the country. [more inside]

What Can I Do? A Guide to Doing, Not Despairing

A short, illustrated guide to things you can do to make the world better and take care of yourself now that Everything Is Terrible. I created it as a way to get myself out of a deep politics-related funk earlier this month.

You are personally inconvenienced by a protest action you support. How should you react?

Just a short and sweet Medium post (my first). My family was briefly stuck in the Seatac airport terminal during last weekend's protests over Trump's Muslim ban. I put together some thoughts about crowd dynamics, and what you can do to support a protest action you didn't necessarily intend to be swept up in.

Marching Solidarity Songs

I keep talking about songs to sing at protests, right? Well, here's a list of things that more or less seem to go over well, which I am currently curating and tweaking to hit the songs that seem to be most useful for the most people marching today. I'm aiming to keep this list relatively lean at under 50 songs so that it's a little easier to find something that works at any given moment, because existing lists seem sort of bloated and hard to organize. Works best if you have a paid version of Spotify that can use the "up next" feature to pick and choose what gets played when, and also maybe a portable bluetooth speaker. [more inside]

All That You Can Be

A satirical recruitment ad calling for trans women to join the military. I wrote and directed this to protest the recent prioritization of trans inclusion in the armed forces above and beyond all of our myriad concerns, something which happened on the say so of one billionaire with absolutely no dialogue with the larger trans community. Enjoy.

How tall is Jack Reacher?

I wanted to start learning how Twitter Bootstrap works, and to brush up on my very rough HTML skills, so in a fit of pique I decided to make a protest site about a certain actor of a certain stature casting himself for a certain movie about a certain men's adventure hero. Including actual-size height charts and short reviews of every Reacher novel according to my patented 4-D Reacher Review® system (Deadly/Daunting/Detective/Drifter).
