Thread: I'm getting a lot of questions offline about what folks can be doing politically right now. Here are a few areas:
1. Donate, even small amounts to candidates you support, including folks running for US Senate. For example, Amy McGrath to flip Mitch McConnell's seat; /1
or Sara Gideon to flip Susan Collins' seat. Even $5 helps candidates b/c it all adds up.
2. Pick a cause that matters and donate and/or get involved. For example, find a chapter of Moms Demand Action for gun sense reform near you. It is an instant community of like-minded /2
people working to help pass common-sense gun reform laws. Or find another issue or cause that speaks to you.
3. If you don't want to volunteer for one candidate, sign up to register voters, especially in states that aren't already blue. Parts of VA, GA, NC, PA, TX, WI, MI, FL /3
Registering voters is non-confrontational and non-partisan and doesn't requiring going door to door.
4. Once the primaries are over, we will have lots of work to do. But for now, I'd expend my efforts toward donating if you can, helping issues/causes that matter to you, /4
And registering voters if you have the time to volunteer for that. The key is to do something so that you feel like you are not constantly standing by watching a train wreck. I hope this helps, I know it's exhausting and overwhelming. It's been a particularly rough patch. END
