At peaceful protests on the day after the Presidential Inauguration, signs of resistance--literally--were abundant and varied. Clever, passionate, and artistic messages waved above the crowds at the Mall in Washington, DC and in the parks and avenues of Boston, Los Angeles, Denver, Chicago, and many more cities and towns.
Unitarian Universalists were well represented, some in bright, yellow tee shirts that affirmed we "stand on the side of love."
Many UUA staff joined a Women's March in Washington, DC or a sister city that day. Here are some signs of resistance we saw.

During the Inaugration weekend, the UUA collected videos, photos, and other social media from Unitarian Universalists who joined protests and shared activist energy in their congregations. See the Storify album and more photo s on Facebook.
The Show the Love Map on the UUA website offers many congregations' answers to the question, "What next?" after the Presidential Election.
