Women Powering the Resistance

We asked you to share stories about women in your lives powering the Resistance, because it’s not just the women making headlines who are making a difference.

Here are some of their stories:

Between attending protests with her mother and registering young voters, Caitlin helped rewrite her school’s sexual assault and harassment policy.

Jane is a “real dynamo” who at 80 years old grew her Florida Indivisible chapter from 100 to 550 in just one year.

Deidre has been on the front lines protecting our environment for more than 15 years, and her aunt hopes she will someday run for office.

Jeri is president of her local National Organization for Women chapter, and formed a women’s political group where they meet to discuss issues and take action.

And we were reminded of “Granny D” who at 90, walked from Los Angeles to D.C. to raise awareness about the need for campaign finance reform. Granny D once said “Democracy is a running game. You huddle and you go back in. You keep going.”

Share the stories of these inspiring women with your friends and family today, and urge them to join the Stand Up America community with them (and you!):
