Did you call your senators today to demand action on gun violence? If you didn’t, it’s not too late! Do it Wednesday by following my instructions here. And if you did do it … do it again! You can call or Resistbot your senators every day. They work for you. Make them work harder.
For those who have already talked the talk and are anxious to walk the walk, here’s your second task for this week: Join an #ElPasoFirme vigil on Wednesday to call for an end to white-supremacist terrorism while remembering the lives lost to gun violence.
No vigil in your neighborhood? Create your own with a couple of friends. Register it on the #ElPasoFirme website to grow your crowd. Make yourself some signs and stand outside your senators’ offices with them. Another good location would be outside a local news organization’s office.
While you’re at it, make sure you stay informed about other kinds of local actions by signing up at #SOSAmerica and NeverAgainAction. Activism isn’t just about giant “one and done” protests like the Women’s March, as impressive as those kind of events are. We need continuous protests across the country, and these groups are making those happen.
