Why I Resist

Why I Resist

Why do you resist? And how do you persist?

Some forms of resistance are highly visible: a protest or march, for example. But there are thousands of ways we stand up for what we believe in. It can be through political organizing. It can be building relationships with neighbors. It can be daring to go against the status quo. Or refusing to be silenced. However you choose to resist, let’s share our stories and inspire each other to keep going.

Here are some ideas to get you started:

  • How do you show your resistance? Is it through shouts or is it through whispers?
  • Have you participated in acts of resistance that have led to positive outcomes? Why did it work and what can others learn from it?
  • What challenges or risks do you face when you stand up for what you believe in? Why do you take the risk, and how can the global community support you?

Let’s inspire each other and celebrate perseverance, resistance, and courage in all its forms.
