The Resist app introduces crowdsourced activism to help those troubled by daily news reports take action. The Resist community contributes actions to the app's "Actions Feed." These actions can be as simple as signing a petition or contributing more of a commitment, such as donating money to an organization or attending a march. Additionally, the Resist app works with news applications to let you see actions related to stories you're reading about.

For example, if you're reading a story on a new travel ban, the app might suggest an immigrants' rights organization to donate to or a support rally to attend. The Resist app aims to transform helplessness into action by leading the proverbial horse as close to water as possible. It's easy to feel overwhelmed by the news cycle nowadays, but the Resist app proves that thanks to tech, activism is just a tap away.
