Use this Toolkit to Organize under President Trump.

The first 100 days of a presidency can shape a president’s entire first term. Those first few months can set the tone for how she or he will govern the country, and also how his or her constituents will respond to their leadership.

At, we believe that everyone should have the tools they need to organize around issues that matter to them, so we’ve put together this organizing toolkit to help you create powerful and impactful campaigns during President Trump’s first 100 days in office.

Here are a few top line tips:

Tell your personal story — people love hearing why an issue affects you personally.

Keep your signers engaged by sending petition updates about further actions they can take. You can easily coordinate call-in days, social media actions, and a lot more.

Make sure you choose the right decision-maker(s) and reach out to them for a response.

Organize a day of action online or on-the-ground to escalate your campaign.

Check out the toolkit for ideas on how to take your campaign to the next level with call-in days, crowdfunding for actions, and press coverage — it’s all in there!

With a new administration comes inevitable change to our country, and it’s our responsibility to make sure that everyone — not just those with money and power — can make their voices heard in Washington. Petitions are a great tool for starting that communication and engaging decision makers, and we hope this toolkit can be a useful resource to you in the next 100 days and beyond.
