Our show this Tuesday, April 11th, 12:00-1:00 PM, will feature a one-on-one interview with the phenomenal, Aditi Juneja, millennial activist, NYU law student, co-creator and co-editor of the popular Resistance Manual. See guest picture and short bio at our radio show website: www.BarbaraArnwine.com.

Following the election of Donald Trump, his inauguration, his executive orders, his cabinet appointments and the growing evidence of collaboration between his campaign staff and Russia, a massive Resistance Movement has arisen in the United States.

In January, the Women’s March saw 3-5 million Americans throughout the nation demonstrating their opposition to the Trump Administration. Many who attended the Women’s March had never been involved in a protest before. Soon thereafter the Muslim Ban resulted in major demonstrations at our airports and in the streets. As the House started promoting legislation to repeal and replace the ACA/Obamacare, thousands of Americans directly protested at Town Hall meetings and in the streets. Again, many of these protestors were new to political action and started clamoring for information about policies and organizing.

Into this breach of tremendous need stepped our guest, Aditi Juneja. Inspired by her own new activism and desire for information, she reached out to Samuel Sinyangwe, Black activist, data and policy analyst and Co-Founder of Campaign Zero, who readily embraced the project. Together they co-created The Resistance Manual, a “Wikipedia-style, open source guide.”

This Resistance Manual has rapidly become a major resource for people seeking intelligence and guidance about public policy, legislation, executive actions, rallies, resources and events. Topics covered in the Manual include Healthcare, Policing, Immigration, LGBTQ + Equality, Disability Rights, Housing/Infrastructure, Climate/Environment, Foreign Policy, Benefits/Tax Cuts, Mass Incarceration, Muslim Ban/Registry, Educational Justice, Women’s Rights/Reproductive Justice, Consumer Protections/Workers’ Rights and Voting Rights. Thousands have accessed this Manual. Its popularity has spurred media attention to Aditi Juneja’s work.

As the demand for advice has grown, A new tool has been launched, OurStates.org to provide more detail on state actions.

Recently, Aditi Juneja has been involved in another new initiative of public importance, SelfCareSundays, website: SelfCareSundaysPodcast.com.

Our show will discuss the status of the Resistance Movement and the many uses of the Resistance Manual in supporting future actions. We’ll explore the resources of ourstates.org. And Aditi Juneja will give an overview of her newest project, SelfCareSundays.
