Activist Launches 'We Won't Go Back' National Equality Movement

BY BTL STAFF

LOS ANGELES - Jared Milrad, an award-winning actor, writer, filmmaker, lawyer and activist, has launched We Won't Go Back, a people's movement for Americans of all backgrounds fighting to protect the country's highest ideals of inclusivity, equality, justice and opportunity.

The movement's website provides unique resources for supporters to increase democratic engagement, including more than a dozen prominent nonprofit organizations in need of donations, ways to contact Members of Congress, and a survey that prioritizes the top social issues of participants for future engagement.

"Nov. 8, 2016 was a turning point for our nation," said Milrad. "Millions of Americans are deeply troubled and even frightened by the results, and many wonder if America still has a place for them. We Won't Go Back proves definitely that it does, while providing a crucial space for people of all backgrounds to actively build a more inclusive, hopeful future."

Causes featured on the site include women's rights, immigration reform, LGBTQ rights, climate change, civil liberties, gun safety, animal protection, and many others. A promotional video featuring diverse Americans and influencers is available for viewing online. Connect with likeminded people on the We Won't Go Back Facebook page.
