The goal of this site is to give you a sense of what it’s like to get active with a local resist group–to help pressure our representatives and change the outcome of the elections in 2018. This is a huge movement and it takes all kinds of people. There are lots of roles like phone banking, canvassing, or visiting the staff of your local representatives. Or if you aren’t comfortable with those roles, you can do a wide variety of other actions to help make the whole thing work. None of the groups require a minimum commitment, you can figure out the balance you need. Please look around, learn more about the groups, and find the best group and role for you. And please alert any friends who might benefit from the site.
