Padma, ACLU Plot Anti-Trump Resistance

ACLU to teach anti-Trump 'resistance training'
The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) will livestream anti-Trump "resistance training" Saturday as it prepares to launch a grassroots mobilization campaign.

The effort, called PeoplePower, will begin in Miami on Saturday, Reuters reported.

The event will feature "resistance training" that will be livestreamed to over 2000 local meetings across the country.

ACLU executive director Anthony Romero, the "Top Chef" host Padma Lakshmi and a group of legal experts are all expected to speak at the event.
I don't see why the ACLU should be up in arms about Trump; he's been very good for their membership rolls. . .
The ACLU said it's seen a major surge in membership since President Trump's election and is shifting from being a litigation-based organization.

"Before, our membership was largely older and much smaller," Romero told Reuters.

"Our members would provide us with money so we could file the cases and do the advocacy. What's clear with the Trump election is that our new members are engaged and want to be deployed," he added.
I really don't care what Padma or the ACLU advocate, but if the ACLU wants to maintain a tax exempt status, I would suggest some care. The IRS has been known to go after individuals who donate to unapproved charities, and the charities, at least in the Obama years.
