American Resistance Sevilla
Saturday, January 20, 12 noon
Columbus Monument in Jardines de Murillo
American Resistance Sevilla is sponsoring a march to mark the one-year anniversary of the Women’s March on Washington, the largest coordinated protest in U.S. history. Last year, more than five million people around the world— Americans as well as concerned citizens around the world—protested the inauguration of Donald Trump as president of the United States.
Seville’s active American community and supporters will meet at the Columbus Monument in Jardines de Murillo at 12:00 noon on Saturday, January 20, 2018. Seville’s march, which will feature speaker JoNell Kvamme, is planned in conjunction with the principal Women’s March event in Las Vegas. Sister marches are being held in hundreds of American cities and international locations, with people mobilizing all over the world to speak out in support of equality, justice, and inclusion for women worldwide. American Resistance Sevilla welcomes men and women of all nations to march with us in support of this cause. Feel free to forward this information.

Landmarks this week!

Commemorate the anniversary of the Women's March. In Washington and around the world, women will gather at March events to promote equality, justice, and inclusion for women worldwide. (See you in Sevilla!)
Mark one year of the Trump presidency. Besides creating millions of new activists, Donald Trump has told a record-breaking 2000 documented lies, confounded translators of the international press, and bragged repeatedly about his election win.

Beliefs are hard to change. But what the neighbors think (or what we think they think) can change how we act—and that may be good enough. Betsy Levy Paluck discusses her research into mass media and public opinion.
Washington Post: As an EPA intern, I was barred from mentioning climate change by Katie Miller
Intern stuff: responding to citizen inquiries, making calls, editing documents. But this instruction was included: Don’t mention climate change or “going green;” instead, talk about “conserving energy” or “saving money.”
Robert Wood Johnson Foundation: Discrimination in America in collaboration with NPR and the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health.
This report series focuses on personal experiences with discrimination across more than a dozen areas of daily life for specific groups: African Americans, Asian Americans, Latinos, LGBTQ, Native Americans, Whites, Women. (Interestingly, a majority of white Americans believe that discrimination against whites exists, but far fewer say that they have experienced discrimination personally.)
