Welcome to The Desert Dissenter!

The Trump administration poses a real and serious threat to the country. Here in Arizona, we have a unique opportunity. Senators McCain and Flake have shown the courage to stand up to Trump. With a little support and activism, we can show them that the constituents do not agree with Trump’s toxic agenda.

Here on this blog, we want to give you the tools, encouragement and information to keep you active. Life gets busy, but the Trump administration will not slow down. We have to be there, every day, opposing his dangerous plans.

Upcoming Events in Arizona!

If I only convey one thing, to any member of the resistance who reads my words, then let it be this: you are not alone, take solace in that truth, and be intentional in seeking out like-minded people. Our resistance needs to evolve and it can only evolve when we

Arizona Governor Doug Ducey recently met with Trump to discuss the ACA repeal and its effect on Medicaid expansion money for the state. At first, I was hopeful that Ducey would try to prevent vulnerable Arizona residents from losing their care. Instead, it seems he was there to figure out
