Resistance Happy Place


The next 4 years are going to be a long, dragging, depressing haul. So when you need a pick me up or reminder of why we are fighting, check out my Resistance Happy Place! I’ll be adding to this as I find things to inspire us, cheer us up, and remind us what’s at stake!

Please feel free to comment below and share links and information that makes you happy right now and I’ll add some of them to the page. Also, as this page grows, check the comments for stories and information not shared on the page.
