commented on Choosing to lead

This is just to let you know that, regretfully, ImmDef is ending its relationship with NationBuilder. We were dismayed at the letter that was posted on the NB blog a few days after the election, and the values-neutral way it assessed a political event that progressives in this country see as a real tragedy.
The election of Donald Trump is not simply the rise of a non-traditional candidate to public office to shake up the system. It is the rise of a populist, misogynist, racist and anti-intellectual person who is at the vanguard of a move to destroy democratic institutions that have protected those in our society who have no power, little money and a very small voice.
For the progressive activist community, the next four years will be a daily battle to provide the most basic protection to those among us who are the most vulnerable: immigrants, people of color, people whose sexuality is other, people who are working, unemployed and/or under-employed and who are barely surviving on the income they receive, people who care about clean air, water and soil, people on the streets, people who are addicts. Even in the best of times, this work has always been a struggle. As an immigrant rights organization, we are now in the crosshairs of the incoming administration, and we see the Twitter comments of the president-elect as real threats and not just off-hand comments.
We will stand with our community, and we will choose to do business with organizations that value those communities. We feel NationBuilder cannot legitimately claim to do as much.
Thank you for your attention.

commented on How can I change the colors of my website?
This has not worked for me. I am trying to change only the colors of the supporter nav buttons, but what I see when I inspect the element is nothing like what I see in the theme scss or the button scss. I am using Victory Again. Someone on this thread has noted that changing colors like this does not work on Victory. Could you tell me how to change theme colors on Victory again, or if there is something I should do that I’m not currently doing?
