The complete list of American cities where neo-Nazis are known to operate

  • The number of neo-Nazi and other radical right-wing hate groups increased during Trump’s ascent to power, according to a recent report from the Southern Poverty Law Center.
  • From 2015 to 2016, the number of hate groups rose from 892 to 917, as fringe groups worked their way into the mainstream through Trump, whom white nationalists see as an ally to their cause.
  • Of those 917 hate groups, 99 of them are classified as neo-Nazi organizations, according to the SPLC’s Hate Map.

An unforgettable night sky – with a tinge of color from the Northern Lights – stretches over Crater Lake National Park in Oregon. America’s national parks hold some of the last remaining harbors of darkness where visitors can enjoy the splendor of these protected dark skies. Photographer Matthew Newman says his nighttime adventure forever changed the way he experiences nature: “Making a seven-mile snowshoe hike round trip in the middle of the night to try and capture the Aurora Borealis and Milky Way from this location was amazing.” Photo courtesy of Matthew Newman.

Panorama across Crater Lake, Crater Lake National Park, Oregon

The solitude and beauty of a winter sunrise at Crater Lake National Park in Oregon is unmatched. The park protects the United States’ deepest lake, which rarely freezes even in cold temperatures. Make the most of the season by strapping on snowshoes or skies to explore this volcanic landscape of scenic views and old-growth forests. Photo courtesy of Jordan McFall.

The resistance grows. Tens of thousands of people came out this week at 152 rallies in 120 congressional districts from Eugene, Oregon, to Providence, Rhode Island. The message to Trump and the Republicans is clear: Do not repeal the Affordable Care Act. Improve it. Do not throw 20 million people off of health care. Do not allow insurance companies to discriminate against those with pre-existing conditions. Do not remove young people from their parents’ insurance policies. Do not force women to pay more than men for health care. Do not ask seniors to pay, on average, $2,000 a year more for prescription drugs. Our job: Short term we must defend and improve the Affordable Care Act. Long term, we must have the United States join the rest of the industrialized world in guaranteeing health care for every man, woman and child through a Medicare for All program.
—  Bernie Sanders

With pinkish clouds over serene blue waters and stately trees, there’s beauty everywhere you look at Crater Lake National Park in Oregon! Photographer Jeff C. Bryant waited until just the right moment to capture this striking sunset shot: “As someone who photographs sunsets quite often, you win some and lose some. One thing I’ve learned is not to leave early!” We think this shot is definitely on the winning side. Photo courtesy of Jeff C. Bryant,
