We know that you are outraged and shaken by the dangerous upsurge of hate groups, and the support being given to them by the President. Our towns need to be ready to stop them, and we can't let anger and fear overcome us. We are so much more powerful than those who hate. We will overcome them and become stronger if we use this moment to make a long term commitment to stop hate together.

Please share the post below  about what we've learned from you so far  with your communities and spread the quick action steps that can help bring more people into the NIOT movement. Please get in touch if you'd like to participate in a series of calls.
