Indivisible Guide to help fight Trump and his agenda

NOTE FROM THE INDIVISIBLE TEAM
Since this guide went live as a Google Doc, we’ve received an overwhelming flood of messages from people all over the country working to resist the Trump agenda. We’re thrilled and humbled by the energy and passion of this growing movement. We’ll be updating the guide based on your feedback and making it interactive ASAP. You can sign up for updates at www.IndivisibleGuide.com.

Every single person who worked on this guide and website is a volunteer. We’re doing this in our free time without coordination or support from our employers. Our only goal is to help the real leaders on the ground who are resisting Trump’s agenda on their home turf. We hope you will take this document and use it however you see fit.

We want to hear your stories, questions, comments, edits, etc., so please feel free to ping some of us on Twitter: @IndivisibleTeam, @ezralevin, @angelrafpadilla, @texpat, @Leahgreenb. Or email IndivisibleAgainstTrump@gmail.com.
And please please please spread the word! Only folks who know this exists will use it.
Good luck — we will win.

NOTE TO IMMIGRANTS AND NONCITIZENS
The US Constitution ensures equal representation for all individuals living in the United States, regardless of income, race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, age, or immigration status. Noncitizens, though they may lack the right to vote in federal elections, have the right to have their voices heard by their representatives in Congress.

This guide is intended to serve as a resource to all individuals who would like to more effectively participate in the democratic process. While we encourage noncitizens to participate to the extent that they are able, individuals should only take actions that they are comfortable taking, and they should consider their particular set of circumstances before engaging in any of these activities.

Individuals are under no obligation to provide any personally identifiable information to a member of Congress or their staff. Individuals may be asked for their name and zip code, but this is only to confirm that the person is a constituent, and providing this information is strictly voluntary. NO ONE is required to provide any additional information, such as address, social security number, or immigration status.

Republican Senator Jason Schultz has been running a secret committee!

This morning Progress Iowa discovered "Republican Senator Jason Schultz has been running a secret committee, to help create Senate File 213 -- that's the bill which would strip away collective bargaining rights for more than 180,000 of Iowa's public workers. Before the bill was even filed for the public to see, Senator Schultz and his group of lawmakers -- who he refused to identify when challenged during debate -- had already decided what would be included, without any citizen input.
Time after time, Senator Schultz was asked who had input in Senate File 213, who was part of his secret discussions, and time after time he refused to tell his fellow Senators who was involved or how the process worked. Schultz has showed little interest in hearing from the public, or in clueing anyone in on the true motivation for this bill."
Please contact him. Tell him to stop working in secret to attack the rights of Iowa's public workers!
