YOU can make things happen when you become involved in one of the many Advocacy Organizations defending democracy. We listed some of our favorites below including a brief summary of the organization together with links to their websites. Let us know of your favorite organization and we will include it here.
INDIVISIBLE is one of best organizations for newcomers to political actions. It’s a ” nationwide movement of thousands of volunteer-led local groups that engage in progressive advocacy and electoral work at the local, state, and federal levels. ” The website includes a map of events taking place throughout the USA and a Blog for you to post events and issues. INDIVISIBLE publishes a guide describing how to get involved.
The INVISIBLE GUIDE is based on the premise that politicians want to be re-elected. So they have to be liked by their constituents. The Guide provides help on how to organize locally, and how to have your voice heard by attending town halls,and political events coupled with visits to the offices of the politicians and coordinated phone calls.
MOVEON is a organization with both an advocacy group (to address social and political issues) and a political action group (to support candidates running for office). “MoveOn is where millions mobilize for a better society—one where everyone can thrive. Whether it’s supporting a candidate, passing legislation, or changing our culture, MoveOn members are committed to an inclusive and progressive future. We envision a world marked by equality, sustainability, justice, and love. And we mobilize together to achieve it.”

#MARCH For TRUTH is a coalition of national partner organizations and grassroots organizers and activists established to demand answers on Russia’s interference in the 2016 presidential election and ties to Donald Trump, his campaign, his family and his aides.

The legitimacy of our democracy is more important than the interests of any party, or any President. Our demand is for a fair and impartial investigation, for the pursuit of truth, and for the restoration of faith in our electoral system and the Office of the Presidency.
