Resist Here
Letter sent on Aug 1, 2017

Our best month ever …

Thanks for following Resist Here on Medium. Seven months after launching, I’m writing to tell you that we’re really hitting our stride.

In July, we featured stories from Medium writers about resistance to the KKK in Charlottesville and about what patriotism really means from a Muslim-American veteran, while our volunteers reported from events featuring Rev. William Barber and Working Families Party candidate Randy Bryce, aka “the man who will beat Paul Ryan.”

As Congress gets ready to adjourn for its next #ResistanceRecess, we want to make sure August is even better. We are entirely volunteer-powered, and we’re not asking for money, just help. Here’s what you can do:

  1. Share Resist Here content. There are some great pieces above. Share them on social media and in your activist groups. Help us get the word out.
  2. Share your content. If you’re already sharing your resistance efforts on Medium but have not found a publication to call home, consider Resist Here. Email me at itsmilesgloriosus@gmail.com and I’ll grant you submission privileges. We can’t accept everything, but we will share the best of the best. Please be sure that your stories have a lead photo at the top so they look their best on our homepage. We won’t make any changes to your story without consulting you first.
  3. Write for Resist Here. If you’re not writing yet, but have something you’d like to write about your activism or efforts in your area, email me at the address above and we can work on your story together.

Thanks for your support.
