Nervous about the current political/national situation? Want to take action? Consider joining the WRITERS RESIST movement.

“Since the November elections, some artists are taking the lead in a national movement they say is designed to protect civil liberties and defend truth in political discourse. An event being held in 87 locations nationwide and five internationally in conjunction with Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday will bring together writers who will share their concerns for the future and audiences who want to help spread the word.”
