A Tribe Called Quest

http://atribecalledquest.com

Being a huge fan and a Gen X I couldn't be happier to see A Tribe Called Quest back hard and live with songs like "We the People."  They have taken a stand against Trump and his regime and have made some beautiful music about it.  I absolutely love their performances.  They sound better than ever and I love it!

American Medical Association

https://www.ama-assn.org

The AMA would not be an organization you might typically figure under our umbrella of The Resistance, however, they have a strong vision on health care reform. They believe all Americans should have insurance, a freedom of choice and that physicians should have a freedom of practice. As many of us know health insurance companies have come to govern our health more so than our own doctors, if you're fortunate enough to have a doctor. They also express concern over what Trump is currently doing with ACA including losing pre-existing coverage for patients and insurance all together. Membership is limited to Resident Physicians, Physicians and Medical Students.


Center for Women's Reproductive Rights

This organization is not messing around. They see Trump and his appointment of SCOTUS pick as a clear attack on women's rights. I cannot say I disagree one bit.

This organization I feel is extremely important right now with the Muslim ban that Trump has attempted.  It is very educational and keeps you apprised of recent updates regarding their goals.

Americans United for Separation of Church & State

http://www.au.org
https://twitter.com/americansunited

Americans United was founded in 1947. Their work is extremely important right now with what we are seeing with what Trump is doing with the Muslim religion. They have Neil Gorsuch on their opening page and have major concerns about him obviously. They also believe that no one's religious beliefs should give them the right to do harm to to others. (Extremism) They do not believe religion should stand in any place regarding a woman's reproductive health care or marriage, etc. There are many ways to get involved with this group. I highly recommend.

AntiWar

https://antiwar.com

This is actually a Libertarian site, but is directed towards all of the left. They recognize the urgency of Trump stating he wants to go back to Iraq and get the oil and are against the New World Order that radio host Fredricks stated Trump was helping to bring about. There's a lot of good information on this site.
