Our members of Congress are on recess. They left Washington yesterday and should be in their home districts by now. During this weeklong recess, MoveOn.org is promoting a Resistance Recess campaign designed to target our elected officials on their home turf. Remember, folks, these politicians work for us, and they need to represent us and our interests in Congress. They need to see us and hear us and understand us and count us. The only way that will happen is if we show up so that they can’t ignore us. Otherwise, these politicians will do only what serves to advance their own agendas and what promotes their own pet projects.

MoveOn provides tools to find local town hall events as well as materials and strategies to make the most of your activism at those events.

Go. And then come back here and share your stories.

All politics is local.

Be seen.

Be heard.

Be counted.
