This page is devoted to listing situations and opportunities to resist. We depend on you letting us know what is happening and where we can act. Resistance involves challenging misinformation, confronting bigotry, calling outchurch officials who disingenuously claim to love everyone but acquiesce in institutional bullying, and caucusing in order to democratically remove officials who marginalize and disenfranchise others.
