A Starting Place: Resources to #Resist 

Here are the numbers Humboldt County residents need to call our representatives:

Senator Dianne Feinstein
Washington, D.C. Office: (202)224-3841
331 Hart Senate Office Building, Washington D.C. 20510
San Francisco Office: (415)393 0707

Remember these people work for you, so contact them about issues that are keeping you awake at night. No reason to get fancy — buy a stack of index cards and use them for postcards. Program your elected representatives into your phone for easy access. Remember to keep your comments brief and address only one issue per phone call/email or letter at a time. Need some support to get started? Invite some friends to a bar, coffee shop or kitchen table to join you.

If you need help keeping up with the issues, look to Power Lunch Humboldt's Facebook page. Every Tuesday at noon, you are invited to eat lunch with these friendly folk while calling elected officials by cell phone. After a short primer on the issues, you'll get a contact sheet and even an optional “script” to keep you from nervously rambling. And if you can’t make the Tuesday lunch date, the contact sheet is always published on the Facebook page so you can call at a time that works for you.

If you're eager to strap on your marching boots again, here are some upcoming marches to check out. Some have sister marches planned for Humboldt or a city near us. Some are waiting for someone like you to organize a march right here in Humboldt.

Tax March: April 15, San Francisco (Let’s see those tax returns.)
March for Science: April 22, Washington D.C. (Sister march planned for Humboldt)
Immigrants March: May 6, Washington D.C.
Capitol Day: May 15, Sacramento (In support of Planned Parenthood.)
National Pride March: June 11, Washington D.C.
