Want to Do More Than One Thing?

One Thing You Can Do‘s purpose is to help you focus. It gives you one thing you can do, every day, to push back against Trump. One thing. Every day.

So you’ve done the one thing, but you want to do more. What next?

Here are recommendations for groups, mailing lists, blogs, and other entities that will give you more things to do.

The list is not comprehensive, and it’s not meant to be. Nor is it closed. Everything is OTYCD-approved. The blog relies on many of these sources when seeking and researching subjects for future posts.

 

Rogan’s List blog (http://roganslist.blogspot.com)

Susan Rogan will keep you as busy as you want to be. The retired university librarian’s blog gives you more than a dozen useful nuggets of information per day, from actions to tools to organizations to join, and more. Are you extra-eager to do more? Start here. The newest daily tends to go live around 9 am EST.

 

Flippable (https://www.flippable.org/)

Flippable’s goal is to turn state and federal offices blue, one electoral race at a time. Its email list sends out one message per week that contains several action items. It’s especially good for learning about upcoming elections in state legislatures.

 

Movement to Oppose Trump (https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSfBigMnFKHEKMAY6q0cB1ONWiWeVluDwQtyqEtH0cZ_GZq-1A/viewform#responses)

The multi-talented Michael Skolnik releases a weekly action email with the does-just-what-it-says-on-the-box title Movement to Oppose Trump. It’s a smorgasboard of calls to action, pieces to read, resistance resources, upcoming events, social media accounts to follow, donations to make, finished with a music suggestion (late in January 2017, he pointed to Tupac’s Keep Ya Head Up).

 

Weekly Resistance to Trump (http://www.weekly-resistance.online)’

This web site sends a weekly email that recommends an action to take and a donation to make.

 

Wall-of-Us (https://www.wall-of-us.org)

Another good site that produces a weekly email containing several action items.

 

While it’s not the most important thing you can do to push back against Trump, it’s certainly amusing to follow @HalfOnionInABag on Twitter. It’s just that–half an onion in a bag. Its goal is to get more followers than Donald Trump to show that having a big honking Twitter audience really doesn’t mean all that much if half an onion in a bag can meet or beat Trump’s.
