California Democratic Party – Take Action

Frustrated by Trump and his policies?

Let’s hold our Republican Congressmembers’ feet to the fire!

Here’s how to help to make REAL change:


 

Attend or Demand a Town Hall

 Hold Republican Congressional members accountable. Too many Republicans are hiding from the public – and we deserve to be heard. Plan to attend a local Republican Congressional town hall or call on your local Republican congressional member to host one.

ATTEND A TOWN HALL

Make Some Phone Calls

 There’s nothing more persuasive than a call from a congressional constituent. If you don’t live in a Republican congressional district, you can still call Democrats who do and ask them to get involved!

Letters to the Editor

 Write a letter to the editor and make your voice heard, urging your local, state, and congressional representatives to continue to protect progressive values for all. Remember: these are brief and each paper has it’s own submission guidelines.
