Squishing Those Post-Election Night Terrors - Morgan Dawn Livejournal:The Here And Now
The Here And Now
Squishing Those Post-Election Night Terrors
 So [Unknown LJ tag]  and I have decided we'll do what we can (which is all any of us can do). We plan to make 1 phone call a week (since phone calls are what moves the DC machinery) and also focus on local topics which have a big impact on our quality of life

To help us select what to focus on, we'll be using several resources. This one is public and open to anyone:

A call a day keeps fascism away! Scripts & strategies for contacting elected officials and other forms of resistance.

edited: there is also a Weekly Call To Action Google Doc. The first link goes to a set of tips. The second link goes to the actual list. Last week is was about Bannon, This week the ACA and getting the House Oversight Committee to start looking into Trumps conflict of interest issues

Two amazing tools to help you reach out to your Congresspersons (we have tested both)

Jessica Fish (@Fishica) tweeted at 0:57 PM on Thu, Nov 17, 2016:
MAGIC ALERT: You call this number and it auto-connects you to ALL of your congressfolks offices, hops from 1 to the next. 1 (844) 872-0234

Add Their Numbers To Your Phone
Text your US address to (520) 200-2223 to get a list of your star and federal reps.

(zip alone is often enough. If you are really paranoid, use the address of that neighbor who leaves their dog home alone on long weekends until it barks itself hoarsely to sleep).

This year we're skipping holiday gifts and we donated to:

TransLifeLine (transgender support hotline)
Southern Poverty Law Center
Planned Parenthood

This is so helpful! I'm feeling so overwhelmed.

the weekly call to action doc is really helpful. It is hard to make calls, but everyone has been nice (when I;ve reached a live person). and no one minded my stammering
