Michael Moore Has Introduced a Calendar to Help You Keep Up With Every Protest Happening in 2017
With all sorts of apps to help you stay up to date with political issues (there’s even one to help you write to your Congressperson), it seems like there’s nothing stopping you from making a political statement this year. And yet, with so much going on, it can be hard to keep up with the protests, action days, and more. Thankfully, director Michael Moore (who spoke at the Women’s March last month) has taken it upon himself to fill the gap on keeping us all up to snuff when it comes to daily issues by creating a digital Wikipedia-style calendar for all your protesting needs.
Taking to Twitter, Moore announced the launch of The Resistance Calendar, a live-edit site that allows users to upload information regarding any and every public protest happening. While Moore initially tweeted that the calendar was “nationwide,” one look at the site shows it’s not just US-based, and people are using it globally. In fact, the calendar is already filling up with action days and protests around the world, both large and small.
Lest anyone get protest fatigue (we’re sure that’s a thing!), being able to access tools like this calendar (or any political apps, really) is helpful to ensure that we can pick and choose what’s right for us.
