GAG Cofounder, Kevin Hertzog, was featured in an article in the New York Times on April 21, 2017.
The article, "With Trump Gone, New Yorkers Find Alternatives to Shouting at His Door", discusses the myriad ways New Yorkers contend with the long, slow slog of resistance.
Author Sarah Maslin Nir writes: "In the early days of Donald J. Trump’s presidency, throngs of people descended on the building, gawking, protesting or selling buttons and books. But these days, in the tranquillity outside the 58-story tower where his wife, Melania, and their son, Barron, live, tumbleweeds may as well roll."
GAG, however, continues to apply pressure and maintain its commitment to the resistance consciously aware of what is at stake. As Mr. Hertzog says, “I never expected the panic level to stay high...As human beings, the physical body is conditioned to accept whatever situation it finds itself in. Biologically we are all back to functioning normally, but in our brains everything is as dastardly as always.”
