Activists affiliated with Black Lives Matter released a handbook detailing how to resist President-elect Donald Trump’s potential agenda this week.
Leaders of Stay Woke and Campaign Zero released the “Resistance Manual,” a guide that suggests multiple ways to foil Trump’s plans throughout his presidency, reports the International Business Times.
“Together, we can harness the collective power of the people to resist the impact of a Trump presidency and to continue to make progress in our communities,” the Resistance Manual reads.
The Wikipedia website lists various ways to “resist the impact of a Trump presidency and to continue to make progress in our communities.” It outlines Trump’s potential plans for healthcare, mass incarceration and voting rights.
Under the banner of “Women’s rights/reproductive justice,” the website suggests that Trump and the Republicans plan to hamper the ability of women to get abortions or seek birth control.

Trump might try to de-fund Planned Parenthood, which would cause women to lose access to pre-natal healthcare and other medical services, the website alleged.
To resist, people should call their senators and representatives urging them to block an Obamacare repeal and any Supreme Court nominee that is against Roe v. Wade.
“The Resistance Manual is rooted in the basic principle that the power belongs to the people. We wanted to create a clear tool that people can use for targeted resistance for the next 4 years,” Brittany Packnett said of the manual.
Sam Sinyangwe, a member of Campaign Zero, insists that it’s not about being “anti-Trump.” The Resistance Manual is about fighting for justice and equality, he maintained.
“What’s clear is there are over 100 million people, really the majority of folks in this country, who disapprove of this incoming administration, who are frustrated and looking for a way to continue making progress toward those goals of justice and equity that seems so at risk now,” he said.
