Weekly Action Items: April 6, 2017

#1: Join RESISTBOT (it’s gotten even better!) by texting “resist” to 50409 (or check them out at https://resistbot.io/) and you can be in touch with your elected representatives DAILY. Resistbot creates FAXES from your texts, mails LETTERS from your texts (and they spring for the postage) and even craft OP-EDS from your texts! Their next step is adding ALL 50 GOVERNORS so soon we can spam the $h!t out of Larry Hogan just by texting Resistbot! For those of us phone-shy, email-wary, and just plain busy, RESISTBOT is perfect. Text them TODAY and EVERY DAY.

#2: Attend the Indivisible NBC meeting and invite a friend on Sunday, April 9, at 2:30 at the Cockeysville Public Library. Bring permanent markers! Bring blank cardboard and/or posterboard!! Bring long cardboard tubes from wrapping paper or paper towel rolls! WE WILL BE MAKING PROTEST SIGNS for the April protests in Washington, DC! Even if you cannot attend a protest, your colorful efforts can be carried through DC by someone else.

In addition to brushing up on our coloring and lettering skills, we will also devote part of our meeting to learning good protesting tips: how to keep our protest CLEAN, how to engage (or not engage) with hecklers, how to stay safe, and how to navigate nitty-gritties like where to park or what bus to take! We will even learn how to spread the protest word via social media, if you are not attending a march personally.

Protests we are planning for are:

#3: Cancel your Bank of America account on April 14 at 10 a.m. We will live-stream a mass cancellation of Bank of America accounts at 10 a.m. at a Towson-area branch, which one is yet to be determined (email IndivisibleNorthBalto@gmail.com to get on the list for the heads-up). Bank of America funds the Dakota Access Pipeline! If you don’t have a BOA account to cancel, sign the petition here to speak up:

Final note: Remember the Maryland Legislative Session ends soon (April 10!), so pay attention to the state-level issues you feel strongly about and SPEAK UP NOW! If you (still) don’t know who your state delegates and senator are, click here (https://indivisiblenorthbalto.com/links/) to find your address and figure out who to start haranguing. (You’re on your own for this one – Resistbot hadn’t gotten that far yet!)
