PROGRESS NOW COLORADO – The largest online progressive advocacy organization in Colorado. We work to build progressive power, hold leaders responsible, and ensure equality for all.  A list of ACTION TO TAKE THIS WEEK is provided.

RUN FOR SOMETHING – Recruits and supports talented, passionate young people who will advocate for progressive values now and for the next 30 years, with the ultimate goal of building a progressive bench. RFS takes a chance on people the usual “institutions” might never encounter. We help people run for offices like state legislatures, mayorships, city council seats, and more. We’ll do whatever it takes to get more under-35 year-olds on the ballot.

THE ORANGE RESISTANCE – fights oppression in the Trump era — racial oppression, religious oppression, gender oppression, immigrant oppression, and climate oppression. Each day, the ORANGE RESISTANCE website identifies one action or opportunity you can pursue to fight oppression in the Trump era and work for social and climate justice.

MY WEEKLY RESISTANCEWeekly suggestions for action  

ORGANIZING FOR ACTION – is committed to mobilizing and training the next generation of progressive organizers and leaders.

TOWN HALL PROJECT and the CENTER FOR AMERICAN PROGRESS ACTION FUND Partnership. With CAP Action amplifying our town hall event research, we can even better ensure that that all Americans have the tools needed to channel their organic energy to ensure their voices are heard and their elected representatives held accountable.  Check out ResistanceNearMe.com, CAP Action’s re-launched website which now mirrors townhallproject.com and shares events collected by Town Hall Project’s team of grassroots researchers as well as additional events organized by CAP Action and other progressive allies. And to receive CAP Action’s Progress Report, subscribe here.

ACTION NETWORK – Website to build lists of activists and work with them online easily.   Free to individuals and small groups.

THE LOYAL OPPOSITION – a non-partisan group of citizens who are deeply concerned about the increased risk of the United States sliding towards autocracy under the Trump administration. Each weekday we post a quick and easy call to action (usually a call to your members of Congress) along with all the information necessary to take the action (such as scripts and phone numbers).

UNITEWOMEN.ORG a national non-partisan grassroots organization dedicated to ending inequality for women that stems from prejudice & discrimination and to defend & advance the human and civil rights of women and girls. Sponsor of the Women’s March on Washington.

THESIXTYFIVE.ORG – Weekly actions for the over 65 million Americans who rejected Donald Trump on Election Day. Come together to fight for our vision of a diverse, inclusive America. Together, we can use our voices to remind Congress that they work for all of us.  We are The 65. Join us and call your legislators today!

BoulderCAN – Colorado Action Network, Boulder County Chapter or Boulder CAN! was started by a group of concerned citizens in the wake of the 2016 Presidential Election to bring like-minded individuals together in a community of support and action. We promote the principles of equality, fairness and social justice in the political system.

Saving the West – a campaign that will use the power of social media and grassroots advocacy to bring rural and urban activists together and ensure that governments, businesses and NGOs work collaboratively to slow the development of open space.

Want to Resist the Trump Agenda? There’s an App for That!
Here are some of the most discussed apps powering the resistance!

Daily Action – a text message-based service that gives subscribers a single thing to do every day.

It Starts Today – a highly unorthodox approach to funding campaigns that founders compare to opt-in public financing. The site offers monthly subscriptions starting at $4.68 — one penny for each House and Senate seat on the ballot in 2018 — and then evenly distributes the money it raises to every Democrat who makes it to the general election in those races.

Flippable – puts renewed emphasis and resources into flipping statehouses ahead of congressional redistricting in 2020. The app’s founders are developing a statistical model to anticipate which state legislative districts are the most “flippable” and important, and have already funneled $135,000 for four candidates they’ve endorsed in upcoming special elections – a significant sum in low-spending state legislative races.

The Resistance Manual – A kind of Wikipedia for anti-Trumpers that provides information on major policy issues important to progressives and what might happen to them under Trump, along with suggestions about “How You Can Resist”.

Swing Left – helps people find their nearest competitive congressional district where they can work to try and oust a republican or support a Democrat ahead of the 2018 midterm election.

Wall of Us – gives people four suggested actions each week.

5 Calls – makes it easy to find your members of Congress and call them.

WhiteHouseInc. – helps users randomly dial one of 30 or so Trump properties where callers can lodge a complaint about Trump’s plans to repeal Obamacare or build a border wall.

Rise Stronger – citizen watchdog organization that brings together other people with expertise in various backgrounds to try to help develop resistance strategies.
