If you fell into that dark night of the soul in November of 2016, then woke up and knew you had to do something about this, these are your people too. Every week they have an informed, warm, spirited and often funny chat about the lunacy going on in this time we’re living through. And that’s not all- they’re also a great source of actions you can do to resist. I live in Oregon, so I like the Oregon focus, but I think they’d have national appeal, too.

Issue of the week: Keep calling about impeachment 

I’m appalled at how Trump has abandoned our allies and keeps asking for foreign governments to interfere in our elections.  I ask the Representative/Senator to insist:

  • Congress act decisively with immediate, robust, televised impeachment hearings that expose Trump’s abuses, corruption and crimes;
  • impeachment hearings end in a vote on impeachment;
  • Congress passes legislation to protect our allies – especially our Kurdish allies;
