Btw, reinforcements are out there, and very available. Check out the Democratic, progressive, environmental, or Indivisible groups near you.

Our local Indivisible group is active! We…
- write guest editorials and letters to the editor,
- gather to wave signs on busy traffic corners,
- organize events,
- organize and/or join meetings with other groups,
- host monthly “Postcard Parties” at a popular local restaurant where we write postcards to our reps to nag them to support OUR issues or to stop ignoring what we want, and more!

We do quite a few of these gatherings-with-purpose, and everyone’s invited. We also team up with other local groups of shared interest. You leave these things feeling like you actually DID something to back up and spread what you believe in. It can be quite gratifying!

AND MOST IMPORTANT: you discover that you’re not alone in how you feel about the issues and the state of things.

HEARTILY recommended!
