"It was an honor and a joy to work with my wife, daughter, close friends, new friends and strangers at the Women's March in NYC to share RESIST! with thousands of amazing women and men (and even some skeptical, quilted-jacked wearing elites).
There is something thrilling about helping to get the voices of women artists to more people and to share the experience of speaking up, making noise, organizing and acting with my two year old and with the people I love.
More RESIST More marches! More volunteers! More ass-kicking women getting heard! Let's make this happen together! Let's make it happen now!"

"Handing out the Resist paper was the highlight of the march for me. People were mostly very receptive to it and were happy to have something to read as we did more standing still than marching. It only took a few people saying how cool the paper was for us to hand out all copies. The day was a terrific display of resistance and having a high quality publication that portrays the power of our collective outraged voices was an excellent tool. Thank you for your very organized efforts. I look forward to being a paper-girl again!" -- Sara Polland, NYC Volunteer
"Once we were inside the crowd of marchers, people were really excited about the paper -- especially young women. In clusters of people, if one person took a paper, then everyone around them would get curious and grab one. Once they opened them up, they were like, "whoa" and "This is REALLY COOL." It was really exciting to see everyone scanning the papers and suddenly realizing how special it was...and then telling us how special it was.
Some people held them high up like protest signs, snapping proud pics of the front page amidst the mass of protesters. We had the luck of finding ourselves next to Zadie Smith as once point, and offered her a copy which she kindly accepted, as did the rest of her group :) Honestly, I was so proud to get to share the work of so many brilliant, generous artists this way." -- Libby VanderPloeg (NYC Volunteer)

"Today I march for those who have already been erased by the Trump administration: for LGBTQ persons, for the black lives who all matter, for the climate change refugees both present and future, and for the disabled persons. I march to show solidarity with those who will come under attack. Today, I will stand beside you, but I will also, today or in the future, stand in front of you to shield you."

"Thought it might take a while to get rid of the 700 copies of RESIST! we took down to the Womens March in LA. We ran out in less than 10 minutes. It happened so fast we forgot to take pictures but a fellow protester found me online and sent me this one." -- Scott Hassel, Los Angeles Volunteer

"I went with my parents, godmother, and boyfriend. My godmother snapped the photo after we had finished passing out the stack of papers that I grabbed from Secret Headquarters. It was such a wonderful thing to be a part of. I am honored to help support the movement in my own small way." -- Hilary Parkin, Los Angeles Volunteer
