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?
First, tell your friends and family about this blog. Share links to posts you like. Retweet our tweets (@OneThingYCD). Help grow our audience. And thank you in advance for helping spread the word.
After you do that, see our 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.
Also, scroll down for a collection of past OTYCD posts that you can still act on.
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.
It’s Time to Fight (http://itstimetofight.weebly.com)
This is tied with Rogan’s List blog as the most effective, up-to-date, and comprehensive Resistance blogs out there, in our opinion. If you’re itching to do more, go here. Celeste is on it. Also, follow her on Twitter at @Celeste_Pewter and @Roadto18.
Note: Rogan’s List and It’s Time to Fight are the best resources for people who want up-to-the-minute alerts on things to do. Both are active every weekday and active on at least some weekend days. Other great resources include:
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.
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.
Another good site that produces a weekly email containing several action items.
We used to recommend following @HalfOnionInABag for the amusement factor. The handle’s sole goal was to get more Twitter followers than Trump.
We have since had a better idea.
Follow Barack Obama instead, if you aren’t already.
His Twitter handle is:
As of early October 2017, Obama has more than 95 million Twitter followers to Trump’s 40 million or so.
Alternately, you can help boost Hillary Clinton’s Twitter audience if you’re not already doing that. As of early October 2017, she has almost 19 million followers. We imagine that Trump would be mightily pissed off if she overtakes him. Why not help move her closer to doing that?
Her Twitter handle:
