Sign up to visit your Member of Congress (MOC)

You need to have a sit down with your member of Congress. We get it, it's a little freaky to go to their office. But they were hired to represent you, and their office is where you can and should be putting pressure to oppose this administration. Don't assume that just because they're Democrats they'll be supporting your interests, how can they if they don't know what you want? So go tell them! If your employee started using the company's credit card to take all their friends out to lunch, you'd probably say something to HR, right?

One very simple way to start a direct discussion with your senators is to sign up for the effort that our friends at MoveOn have launched hosting rallies at the offices of our MOCs every Tuesday for the first 100 days of the Trump administration.

What you can do

1. SIGN UP FOR MoveOn's Resist Trump Tuesdays starting with today, Tuesday the 24th. If you can, go today, if not, sign up for future visits. They plan to go to members of congress' offices across the country every week for the first 100 days of the administration. They will bring press and they need crowds, so pass it on.

2. ORGANIZE your own visit. Get a group of friends together and each hand deliver a letter to your local office (here's another link for finding your senator). Congress has its first recess February 20-24 and are supposed to be spending that time in their home districts. Call their office and politely inquire what events they have planned for that recess week - or go in and surprise them! Show up with letters that are relevant to what is happening at that point in time - or just tell them what issues you care about. That's it--it's that simple!

BONUS - if you feel like it, invite press to cover it, or take a video yourself and share online. It's important to have our Representatives on record and for them to know that the world is watching, and we expect them to truly represent us now.
