Indivisible – A Practical Guide for Resisting the Trump Agenda
Former congressional staffers put together this guide that employs techniques that have been used by Tea Party groups to maximize their impact on government – but this version is focused on activism to put a halt to Trump’s agenda. This idea is gaining momentum all across the country!
There is a cool (free!) app called Countable that allows easy access to see what's going on in Congress and allows you to voice your opinion on issues, bills, etc. It also gives you direct contact to your reps.

There is a third email address through which they're tracking people who are urging support for the audit -- firstname.lastname@example.org.
Or, you can send ONE email addressed to:
