Getting Connected Locally

  • Contacting Congress has developed this great online resource on how to engage and target state and local actors, which you may find helpful. It allows you to enter your zip code and, in addition to providing info for your Members of Congress, it also gives you contact info for: Attorney General, Governor, Lt. Governor, etc.
  • The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) launched People Power, which is a direct response to the Trump administration’s unprecedented attack on our civil liberties and civil rights. Through this platform, activists across the country are using grassroots mobilization and direct action tactics to defend our basic freedoms and hold leaders accountable. To find a public event or action in your area, visit the ACLU’s event map at map.peoplepower.org.
  • Center for American Progress Action Fund launched ResistanceNearMe.org, a hub for progressive local #resist actions, designed for you to find any public event, rally, town hall, protest, and more, across issues in your state, plus information you need to contact your members of congress.
  • To learn about the town hall events happening in your district, visit Town Hall Project. If your elected official is not holding an event, call their district offices and let them know you expect them to hold public events with their constituents.
