Maine Resists is a centralized resource for upcoming protests and other political actions happening in Maine that support social and economic justice. It is intentionally independent from political parties. We hope that by consolidating efforts, spreading the word, and building bridges between existing political movements that we will collectively create a much larger impact.
Around the 100 day mark of the Trump presidency, Perch was asked by Get Ready Weekly to show the Maine Resists events from January to present in a visually engaging way. Using D3, the Facebook API, and a custom API built for the Maine Resists site, Perch created a number of visualizations of attendance and location data. This map shows the reach and location of events as a dynamically generated animation. This streamgraph chart shows event size by category. This stacked streamgraph chart shows unique participant engagement by category over time. And these circle graphs show the interconnectivity of each category to the next.
