This organization can be converted overnight into a far more powerful voice and higher achieving project. "Significant" participation by our readership is what is and has been lacking for far too long.

I have to get you on board. We don't need people to give more, we need more people to give.

Time has come.

In earnest,

Tuesday 7 March 2017 | Despite Donald Trump’s claim that his administration is running like a “fine-tuned machine”, activists have already managed to score victories against some of the most anti-progressive policies of the president and his Republican allies.

Through rallies, marches and dogged pursuit of elected officials, people across the country have helped to block some of Trump’s initiatives, and draw attention to government missteps.

Here are some of activists’ most dramatic wins so far.
