Easy Everyday Activism
Your physician says you should be active every day. I think that means more than just exercise. I think it means flexing your political muscle every day. This guide is meant to show you 3 ways you can be politically active in as little as 3 minutes a day. Even these small actions can have a big effect on our Democracy if everyone participates consistently. Two of these tools are new, high-tech, highly efficient ways to reach out to our elected officials. The last is a decidedly low-tech way of reaching out directly to voters.

- RESISTBOT is a free service–no downloads, no apps to install– that takes your text message and turns it into a physical fax delivered to your elected officials (Senators, Reps, Governor and President for now).
- Stance allows you to record a voice message anytime you want. It saves it and sends it directly into the voicemail of your Representative or your Senators in the middle of the night.
- Postcards to Voters is a program that gives you addresses to registered Democrats and Independents in districts where there are upcoming elections.
