Damsels in Defiance

Always Forward, Never Back.

Our Guiding Principles

  • We are dedicated to engaging in non-violent civil disobedience to protect the rights of all beings under a Trump presidency.
  • We refuse to be complacent in the face of an administration that lacks compassion and empathy.
  • We will stand together and fight against oppression in all its forms.
  • We commit to socio-political activism for the next four years (and beyond) that will thwart the Trump administration’s deconstructive actions.
  • We vigorously oppose any form of racism, misogyny, sexual oppression, xenophobia, anti-environmentalism and religious persecution.
  • We are an inclusive movement that believes in an inclusive America. We welcome all like-minded individuals regardless of political affiliation, race, gender identification, ethnicity and religion.
  • We encourage dialogue, critical thinking, real-world civic action, volunteerism, compassion, kindness, civil disobedience, positivity, non-violent resistance, tolerance and information sharing.
  • We will create and join concrete, non-violent civil actions that take us out of our comfort zone to make our voices heard.
  • We will remain vigilant at all times and aim to reverse damage done by right wing propagandist media and conspiracy theorists. We will likewise hold mainstream and social media accountable.
