Breaking Pawlitics: This Is How We Resist

Hats and other crocheted and handmade goodies are really available from Jan4Insight!

Breaking Pawlitics cartoons highlight breaking nooz and important events, especially those inadequately covered by the mainstream media. In many cases, these are events that need to be protested. So choose how you think best to take action, from face to face meetings to signing petitions. All the contacts you need are here. We will do our best to keep this list updated as new information becomes available.

Take Action!

According to Indivisible: A Practical Guide for Resisting the Trump Agenda: Tackle one issue at a time. The more trouble it takes you to contact your politicians, the more they pay attention. So when you can manage the time and effort, put your body out there. Face-to-face or protest march > calling > faxing (if you can't get through on a regular phone) > writing letters (because they may arrive too late) > personal email > petition or group email.

But we are in this for the long haul, so pace yourselves. Do whatever level you can do. There will be plenty to protest whenever you're ready! When you're tired, others will pick up the slack; when they're tired, you'll be available. We have each others' backs!

To Meet with Your Congresscritters, they have regular town hall meetings. Please check the list and go if you can. Do not let your politicians turn away from We the People. You may also want to bookmark the above page or this page, as both have been updated at various times.

Easy AARP Resource: The AARP has an action site, Advocacy - Legislative Action Center - AARP. The AARP has a nifty feature for everyone: At their Web site, look down to the right, where it says, "Find your state legislators". Put in your zip code. It returns federal, state AND local politicians, NOT just legislators. It has telephone numbers, emails addresses, and clickable links to their Web pages, which should have up-to-date contact information including fax numbers, street addresses, appearance schedules, how to schedule appointments, and constituent services (we found all these for our Kentucky politicians). Please try it and let me know how it works for you!

To Write your Letter then Fax It for Free: FaxZero: Create and send faxes for free to anywhere in the U.S. and Canada (five free faxes per day - try saying that five times fast! - with special pages for Senators and representatives, although someone told me their rep's fax number was wrong; if it doesn't go through, check the AARP site above or go to the politician's Web page for retrieving another number). Also GotFreeFax - easier to use versus the main FaxZero page, but only two free faxes per day.


Breaking Pawlitics cartoons are also posted at Daily Kos, at Facebook, and as soon as possible, will also post at the TeePublic elenacarlena store if you would like to pick up a shirt, mug, or other items with any cartoon in the series, to help spread the word and support these efforts. All cartoons will eventually be on shirts. If you don't see what you want, just ask!
