Below is a list of sub-groups that work within RISE AND RESIST. An action group is a smaller group within RISE AND RESIST that focuses on a particular issue and plans actions around that mission.

Climate Action Group

The Rise and Resist Climate Action Group is committed to confronting the global ecological emergency. The Earth is being burned, drowned, and poisoned. We must act.




5:30pm - 6:30pm

Impeach action Group

Rise and Resist believes Donald John Trump has committed malfeasances that, beyond a shadow of a doubt, warrant that he be impeached by the United States Congress. This action group holds a weekly protest at various location around NYC and each week we cover a different rationale for impeachment. Click Learn more to find out how to join! 


Elevator Action Group

We are a coalition of concerned New Yorkers and activists moving to push wheelchair accessibility in the subways to the top of the MTA agenda. Accessibility is not a dismissible issue. It Is not a luxury or convenience. It is a necessity and a civil right.


Read and Resist

Read and Resist is a monthly book club for the Resistance. We welcome all New Yorkers who are interested in engaging readings and insightful conversations about the challenges we face.

ELections Action Group

The RAR Elections Group works to make New York State government truly democratic by supporting voting and campaign finance reforms, progressive candidates, and progressive legislation. Having worked with coalition partners in 2017 and 2018 to bring down the IDC (a group of Democratic State Senators who handed control of the State Senate to the GOP), the Elections Group is now looking ahead to 2020. 


The Rise and Resist Immigration Group believes that no human being is illegal.We are dedicated to taking direct action on current U.S. immigration policies and issues, including (but not limited to!) the suspension of DACA, ongoing and increased ICE raids, arrests and detentions, the various attempts at barring Muslims and people from specific countries from entering this country, the expiration of TPS for individual countries, and building a barrier wall on the U.S.-Mexico border.
