Buttons for the Resistance is owned and run by Buttoneer in Chief Kristin McGowan, a former Clinton volunteer who turned her distress over the results of the presidential election into a full-time job and mission.

Kristin designs and produces the buttons, and sells them in public spaces—mostly in New York City's Washington Square Park. You can find her there Thursday through Sunday from about 12-7 PM, weather permitting. Look for the two American flags and the "Buttons for the Resistance" sign.

Thanks to the surprising and gratifying level of interest in her work, Kristin has been able to donate over $7,000 in money and buttons to Democratic people and causes. 

Though she's not on social media as much as she might like, you can find her on Facebook at Facebook.com/ButtonsForTheResistance.com.
