First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Socialist.
Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Trade Unionist.
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.
– Martin Niemöller (1892–1984)
Why join Fourteen 61?
The next four years are going to be very difficult. Our democracy and values face fundamental threats. While it’s easy to minimize the severity of a Trump presidency, history has shown us that doing nothing is truly the most dangerous action we can take. In fact, history books are filled with groups of determined, organized people resisting oppression and changing the course of countries. Make being a part of that change a part of your daily routine: sign up for actions from Fourteen 61.
What is Fourteen 61?
Fourteen 61 sends you an action you can take in 5 minutes or less each day to resist Trumpism.
Fourteen 61 was started by a group of friends and Americans who were outraged by the election of Donald Trump and determined to protect our country’s values and institutions from facism, corruption, racism, sexism, climate change denialism and the many other threats to progress that Trump’s presidency poses. We started Fourteen 61 because wanted a way to channel the anger we felt each morning after reading the news to something positive and productive.
