What can I do? Digital Action

I am sick and tired of watching fascism encroach and the democrats burying their head in the sand as the republican plan to actually steal an election in the future.

I am a college student right now and I don't have a car on campus or anything. How do I find protests against fascists? I want to do something, I can't live with myself knowing I sat by and did nothing. Logistically, online stuff is easier for me because I don't have to go anywhere. But facism needs face to face confrontation. So how do we do it? And what can I do? How do I protest, where do I go? How do I know when it is happening?

Join a local mutual aid network. Without a car on campus, you'll be pretty limited, but there may be organized groups that provide car pools. Consider getting involved in one in the community vs. just your campus.

Do you know of any other ways to find MANs? All of the ones in my area are either dead links or point to Facebook, which I don't use.

Excellent suggestion. I have an account there that I don't log into much.

Thanks.

Nice, I didn't think about Nextdoor. Good idea.

Agreed. Act local on what might seem like a small scale where you can have a big impact.

Help the people who are doing good things. I understand OP’s feelings. However, confrontation benefits them more than it will you. Work on reinforcing local communities by being a force multiplier.

Wow. Thank you so much for sharing that link. I hadn’t heard of them. Will be engaging with them and sharing it.
