ResistX Invites Students for Launch
ResistX came from a very simple idea — They make sure people are informed, quickly, about protests around New York City by sending out daily texts and emails. ResistX has created a community around civic action through updates about demonstrations and rallies. Launching at the end of January, the service has gained a tremendous amount of support and has generated a higher level of consciousness surrounding day-to-day action in the city. As ResistX has reached various collectives in different boroughs of New York, constituencies across the country have begun asking for ResistX.
Although resistance technology seems to be an important facet of how New Yorkers communicate with their civic processes, protests have been consistently disregarded as an ineffective method of political change. This service is here to challenge that notion. The moment citizens become silent on an issue is when they lose their voice. As less attention is placed on an issue, politicians are able to look the other way; issues are ignored and the cycle continues. ResistX has created an unprecedented service that enables individuals, whether it be your first or five-hundredth protest, to use their voices for change on a daily basis.
