The Resistance grows stronger and larger every day. There are apps, websites, groups, newsletters, marches, protests, Town Halls and quite honestly, it can be a little overwhelming if you don’t know your way around it all. So, I have compiled a list of some of the more popular resources and grouped them according to purpose. [Updated: 04/27/18]
CONTACTING YOUR REPS — Either by phone, email or in person these resource can guide you through that process as well provide you with up-to-date issues, background, and phone scripts as well as strategies on how to interact with your reps face-to-face if they are Red or Blue. If you are brand new to the process I highly recommend you read Call the Halls for a quick rundown of how it all works.
