▪️How to get involved?▪️
Voting is important, but it’s only one form of activism. We should celebrate the victories of this election by committing to remain engaged. Continue elevating the voices and supporting the work of WOC, BIPOC, LGBTQ, immigrants, and refugees. Be mindful about where you spend your dollars and the type of businesses you support. Look into local organizations to find out how you can assist ongoing efforts.
You can find out who your senators and representatives are by texting the word “Congress” to Resistbot on Messenger, Twitter, Telegram, or to 50409 on SMS. Get familiar with your representatives’ platforms and stay up-to-date on how they vote. Resistbot is a free service that allows you to send letters to your representatives in under two minutes.
#GivingTuesday is the Tuesday after Thanksgiving when citizens are encouraged to share some of their holiday cheer with nonprofit and other community organizations. Many organizations will match donations received on this day so it’s a great way to make your contribution go further.
