The tsunami of constituent activity prompted by the last two Resistance Recesses have been widely credited with building the power to delay the GOP’s vicious plan to take away health care from millions of Americans.You can go here to search for an event near you, or to create a new one.
We're back, and we're ready to mobilize again during the monthlong August recess.
This Resistance Recess, July 28—September 4, MoveOn members and allies will show up at members of Congress's town halls—the few not too scared to face us—or organize our own rallies outside their district offices to demand health care for all and fight for our progressive values.
Activists all over the country, including MoveOn members and Resistance Summer Mobilizers, are hosting events all over the country on issues from health care and calling for medicare for all, to the environment to immigration.
If you've never been to one of these, you want advice about how to diffuse situations, or you'd like some talking points to start from, visit here for Resistance Recess's August recess materials. Many of these materials have been revised and updated specifically for this congressional recess, so even if you've seen them, go take a look.
This post will remain sticky'ed through Labor Day weekend. If I make major updates to it, I'll make another post pointing to it, so you don't miss it.
Please comment with things you'd like to do, things you have done, and ways you have resisted during this August recess.

Link to a tweet thread by Friend of the Pod benwikler from August 3rd, about the upcoming fight about the GOP's plans for a tax cut. "If you want to #ProtectOurCare, the next battle is to make sure the GOP can't give away the government revenue that helps pay for that care."
