Last week’s vote on Trumpcare in the House reminded progressives there’s still lots of work to do restoring democracy in this country. While waiting for the Senate to finish going through the bill with their crack team of 13 old white guys, and your head’s reeling at the audacity of the pretender in thief in the White House firing the FBI Director to deflect from us ever seeing the pee video, here are lots of useful links to websites and groups putting up the good fight to resist the GOP and Trump.

Indivisible is a group that started shortly after the election that continues to grow. They are a good place to learn about how to get active, and there’s probably a group already in your area.

Move On has been around for a while and they are still very active. More than just petitions, they’ve hosted “Resist Trump Tuesday” protests every Tuesday and you can look up protests in your area to participate in. They’ve also partnered with some other groups for larger initiatives and hold conference calls on Sunday nights to talk about accomplishments and areas of focus going forward.

Sign up to receive weekly emails from Wall-of-Us that have different activities to focus on. This group is working to stop Trumpcare and flip Congress in 2018.
