Want to make your Member of Congress listen to you? Hear from the co-founders of the Indivisible Project, who wrote the guide on how progressive groups can apply Tea Party tactics to stop Trump’s agenda in Congress. Learn what tactics are most effective, what your Member of Congress is most concerned about, and what you can do in both red and blue states to demand accountability and action from your representatives.
This training is for all audiences.
