    Physicians for a National Health Program (PNHP) and several other organizations are co-organizing a day of action for single payer healthcare on April 8, to meet lawmakers returning to their home districts for a two-week recess. "With the swift defeat of the GOP bill, a grassroots movement toward a universal, single-payer health program is growing. Now is the time."

  • Get Ready to Flex Your Constituent Muscles as Congressional Recess Starts Tomorrow
    Members of Congress are leaving Washington and heading home for their “spring break” recess from April 7 to 23. Many of them will be holding town halls, where you and others can ask questions, express your views and otherwise do your job of holding your representative and senators accountable face-to-face. Elected officials too chicken to hold town halls still have offices you can visit – you and maybe a few hundred of your best friends, that is.
    • Check out the Indivisible Guide's act local page to see upcoming recess events in your area here.
    • The Town Hall Project also has a great listing of local meetings here.
