Fighting Back

We don't try to persuade people to do anything. If asked, we show them what other groups have done in similar situations to good effect. Sometimes we try to convince people to stop doing things that unnecessarily endanger themselves or others. We aren't always successful at that, and they make our work more difficult.

What we do--through investigative research--is attempt to circumscribe threatening or violent behavior by the right-wing (or other bullies) in order for nice people to participate in public affairs without being afraid.

There are times, however--generally because community safeguards have failed--when it's necessary to summon a little courage and resolve. Most people fade rapidly in those circumstances. The few who rise to the occasion, though, are both worthy of and blessed with our assistance.

We help those who fight back.
