Your DGB for today is to check out OurStates.org, pick at least one category, and follow the six steps to apply pressure to your State Legislator and remind them who, exactly, they work for.
Our States provides six different categories to choose from: immigration, policing and protest, reproductive justice, voting rights, LGBTQ+ equality, and economic justice. They also offer a downloadable guide with tips on how to engage your state legislators.
So, let’s work on our politicians at a local level. Some of them are attempting to push out atrocious plans and we can stop them. OurState cites that 26 states have legislation to ban sanctuary cities, 20 plan to restrict LGBT rights, and 19 intend to restrict reproductive rights. Let them know they work for us, that local politics do matter to us, and they often have more of an impact in our lives than DC politics do.
Sign up with OurStates.org and tell them to do their job or they’re fired.
