The Climate & Community Protection Act is the most ambitious climate action bill in the country and would ensure New York is powered 100% by clean, renewable energy. There’s less than a week left in the legislative session, so it’s up to us to make sure legislators move the act to the Senate floor to vote on and pass. Contact your representative before it’s too late!

This isn’t about politics, this is about people and our planet – People like the amazing kids I got to meet from Alliance for Climate Education who are helping other young people be the solutions they need. These kids are our future and it’s time we invest in the communities on the frontlines of climate change and build a healthy, thriving green economy.

Order your Resistance Hat


Say no to racism, sexism, homophobia, Islamophobia, xenophobia, transphobia, fatphobia, and all other forms of hatefulness.

For $20, you get a hat, and I’ll donate the proceeds (all $ minus cost of shipping) to the following charities: ACLU, Planned Parenthood, CAIR, Trans Lifeline, SPJ Legal Defense, and Immigrant Defense Project. I will split the total money earned between them evenly, once a month.

As for the hats themselves, you can choose an approximate color (I’m using yarn I already have to keep costs down, so the actual shade may vary) or let me surprise you.

Your order will be for an adult sized, basic knit or crochet, beanie-style hat. I’m not able to honor any customization requests, except for the one mentioned below.

**If you have any fiber-related needs (wool allergy, or if you’re vegan and want non-animal fibers, for example) please let me know in the comments section on your order.**
