So, the 5 calls thing is pretty brill, actually. You go to 5calls.org, check off the thing you're concerned about, and they pop up the people to call, their phone numbers, and a script. So I called my senators and asked for an independent investigation into the ties between the Trump campaign and Russia, and then I called my governor in support of the immigrants, documented and not, in our state. I didn't follow the script precisely, but I found it pretty useful for organizing my thoughts. And now I'm done for the day. My god, I hate doing this stuff. It thought the entire point of electing representatives was that they did this shit for me. Sigh. Will do more next week. And the week after. Keep on a keeping' on.

Thank you-I needed a new way to orient to the task.

Yeah, when you were looking for something that suited you, 5calls was one I thought of.
Pace yourself. It's going to be a long, depressing couple of years. Something every week that doesn't totally exhaust you is fine. More next week

(Shit, I meant this to be reinforcing and gratifying and supportive. I don't know if it worked.)
