Digital Resistance

Let’s extend civil disobedience and 1st amendment rights into the digital world. Let’s create a database of ideas, utility, information, and education about how to keep the Trump administration’s normalization of far right ideals as far from normal as possible. We want to become the central online destination for people who want lawful, pragmatic and effective digital ways to protest and prevent the drum beat of racism and ignorance from ever finding its rhythm.

Our Ideas are peaceful.

Our Ideas never harm anyone physically or emotionally.

Our Ideas embrace education

Our Ideas embrace opposition to hate, ignorance, and aggression toward minorities.

Our ideas embrace opposition to corruption and autocracy.

We will work to create, curate and distribute the most effective methods of protest and disruption available to an unrepresented majority of Americans who no longer have an effective voice for tolerance, peace, equality and progressive ideas. The ambition is to create a lively database of ideas that users can implement into their online or offline lives in order to affect governmental change. We like to think of Google’s Chrome experiments as nice parallel to how the user experience might work, and we look to Reddit as a guide of how to democratize the content.
