Since Trump’s inauguration, we’ve heard from thousands of Californians who want to take action to stop the extreme efforts of the Trump administration and Republicans in Congress. To lend our megaphone to grassroots efforts bubbling up throughout California, we’ve launched a brand-new Take Action page to help Californians plug into the movement to resist Trump and congressional Republicans. Check it out today to find or organize town halls in your district, make phone calls, attend a rally, and more.
