Compassionate Resistance for 4/3/17

Compassion Equals Strength

This post is part of my “Compassionate Resistance” series, a regular roundup of stories of local resistance from across America. This series was inspired by and is part of Powerful Resistance, a grassroots project to counter the injustice of the current administration by promoting positive stories of justice and compassion.

  • Seattle Sues Trump Over Sanctuary City Threats (Crosscut): “…By taking action, what we’re seeking is to have a sober, judicial statement of the law to counter attack all the irresponsible saber rattling that’s going on and frightening our residents.”
  • For Some, Passover Seder Will Address Refugee Crisis (Detroit News): “Throughout our history violence and persecution have driven us to wander to seek freedom. Passover really feels like the time on the calendar that just makes the most sense to put people’s attention on the global refugee crisis. There is clearly so much resonance with Jewish history.”
  • Together We Can Build a Caring Country (St. Cloud Times): “We stand at a crisis point that can generate massive change for good. The shift will happen as we maintain hope and resist with dignity all kinds of oppression.”
