  • Defend the nation's healthcare system from Republican destruction by joining the #ProtectOurCare fight

    • Call your representativeNOW using the district-specific Affordable Care Act numbers provided by Contacting Congress.

  • Resist this massive East Coast blizzard -- #ResistTrumpTuesday
    'This resistance is too strong to be slowed down by a little snow -- or even by a lot of snow,' say organizers behind #ResistTrumpTuesdays. Here's a way to show your resistance that can also be fun for the whole family:
    • Build a snowperson (or snowwoman, snowman, snow angel, snow wall to destroy);
    • Make a sign about your resistance to Trump, and take a photo with the snowperson and your sign;
    • Share the photo on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram with the hashtag #ResistTrumpTuesdays (with the 's');
    • Tag your Senator/Representatives or add their Twitter handle;
    • We'll reshare the best ones and send them to the media to prove that even a massive blizzard can't slow down the resistance movement.
  • Celebrate Pi Day by supporting scientists and defending scientific integrity from Trump's attacks
    Today (3.14 ... get it?) is a day to celebrate math and science, so do what you can to let the scientists know you value their contributions to make the world a better place
    • In Silicon Valley, join tech industry workers who are using the day to oppose President Trump's agenda. More details here.
    • Check out the March for Science (scheduled for April 22) and support their efforts to safeguard the scientific community.
