Resistance in your community, across the country, and around the globe
Friday, March 17, 2017
- Join a #Stakeout action today against Republican lawmakers
We can stop the Republicans and save our health care, if we raise our voices in unprecedented ways. That’s why constituents are gathering outside the district offices of nine Republican Senators and 23 Republican Representatives who hold the decisive votes for peaceful "Stakeouts to Save Our Health Care" from 7:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. today when members of Congress return home for a scheduled "district work period."
- Find a Stakeout event near you here.
- Check out the Resistance Calendar for other specific events/actions here.
- Follow the social media hashtag #StakeOut for ongoing updates.
- Organize to #StopGorsuch from becoming U.S. Supreme Court Justice
With his confirmation hearings set to begin next week, join national and local efforts to keep Neil Gorsuch from being confirmed to nation's highest court
- Tell your lawmaker you want them to #ProtectOurCare against Republican's plan to dismantle Affordable Care Act and Medicaid
Following this week's release of the CBO's "devastating" analysis of the House GOP's plan to destroy healthcare, the time is now to step up the pressure on your elected lawmaker to oppose this legislation
- Call your representative NOW using the district-specific Affordable Care Act numbers provided by Contacting Congress.
- Better yet, visit the local office of your elected member of congress and tell them in person you oppose #RyanCare #Trumpcare (or whatever name GOP wants to use). More resources here.
- Indivisible has provided resources and information here.
