RESISTANCE WATCH--When Sue Freitag graduated from UCLA, she knew she had to return to her alma mater, El Camino High School in Woodland Hills. Freitag is an inspiration to her students, exposing students to social issues and advocacy through her program.

RESISTANCE WATCH--As part of its dragged-out process of rewriting the ordinances governing billboards citywide, the L.A. City Council Planning and Land Use Management Committee (PLUM) is about to receive a report on how the city can install digital billboards on city-owned property.

RESISTANCE WATCH-In normal times, Dee from New York would have ordered her copy of The Handmaid’s Tale from Amazon, but these are not normal times. Amazon is on the Grab Your Wallet list, a campaign to boycott retailers that sell Trump family products, which began as a response to the video revealing our now-president’s penchant for grabbing women "by the pussy." Dee bought her book from a smaller retailer instead.
