I'm already a member of a group. Why is Resist In LA important?

There are 9 million people living in Los Angeles. We have the opportunity to create the largest coalition of STARS the country has ever seen. We can mobilize, join forces and be on the same page, at the same rally at the same time. We can gather so much momentum as to draw attention from media, support residents that might need help (at airports, detainment centers), save oceans and nature preserves by showing up at the right time. We have the unique ability to connect millions of people as in a prayer circle, a phone tree or a spider web. We are stronger together. We need to prepare today to be ready for the unexpected and UNPRECEDENTED tomorrow.
