Tools of change:
Feel like this is all a bunch of bullshit? Want to do something about it?
Calling your government representative:
You can also use 5Calls.org if you are having a hard time figuring out what to say.
Tell them in no uncertain terms that you want them to fight to stop Trump from doing these things. Tell them you will be watching them closely on how they vote, and will hold them accountable during the next election if they cave to Trump. You can also call other states congress people and threaten to donate to their opponent if they don’t do what you want.

Also be sure to keep track if you live in a district with an upcoming flip-able seat (flip to the left that is)
