Don't burn out; #theResistance has your back. Here's what you can do — in person, via email, or by phone — to be a part of it.
All week long:
- Remember to thank the people in government who are part of #theResistance: Call Winter Park rep Stephanie Murphy's office and thank her for introducing a bill that would remove Steve Bannon from the National Security Council. 888-205-5421 or 202-225-4035. While you're dialing, thank Bill Nelson for refusing to confirm Rex Tillerson as Secretary of State. 813-225-7040 or 202-224-5274.
- Hop over to Facebook and join Action Together Tampa Bay, the best conduit for local and national action items we've found.
