Ribbons of Resistance

TAKE ACTION!

I created this in response to my deep sadness for our country stemming from the outcome of the 2016 Presidential election.  I am girded for the battles to come. Of particular concern to me are civil rights, the environment and women’s reproductive rights. What are yours?

Wear this ribbon as a symbol of resistance and as a reminder to stay informed, be vigilant and to take action.

I am giving this ribbon to anyone who would like one. Please contact me.

If you would like to make your own, see instructions below.
