Activism Resources

I hope you find these resources useful in your endeavors to make the world a better place. Most of these are gathered for my own purposes of restoring an ethical government in the US.

This is just my knowledge, and it’s far from complete. Please share your recommendations in the comments for everyone to see. Thank you!

RESULTS Activist Toolkit
Online manual by RESULTS, a nationwide org with local chapters that trains volunteers to engage with members of Congress to influence global agendas such as poverty, hunger, and education.

PEOPLE AND GROUPS TO FOLLOW

ACLU – American Civil Liberties Union Website – subscribe to updates   FB page

RESULTS FB page – Nationwide org with local chapters that trains volunteers to engage with members of Congress to influence global agendas such as poverty, hunger, and education.

The People for Bernie Sanders FB page – Bernie fan or no, this is the largest and most active page for the progressively minded.

Trump Friends FB group – Largest group of Trump supporters I could find. It’s important to have a pulse on where they are so we can incrementally bring them into the resistance. I recommend against participating in any way. Just take it in. We want everyone on the same page eventually, so antagonizing others now is counterproductive.
