Hear and Be Heard
This is one of the best opportunities for Chicagoans to shape what happens next in Washington. On the investigation into President Trump's ties to Russia, on the fight over health care and what comes next, and so much else, this is a chance to hear directly from your member of Congress about what's going on and what you can do about it. And it's your chance to make sure they hear your voice as they prepare for the fights ahead.
You Shape the News
Join the hundreds of thousands of people across the country using town halls to shape the fight against the current agenda—and for the America we want to see. What we ask our representatives on this day—and what they say or commit to in response—will be shared across social media and the news and will have a big impact on our shared future.
Lead The Way
It's a new era of active citizenship—and you lead the way. From challenging Republicans who want to take away our health care to pushing Democrats to strengthen their resistance, it’s up to each of us to resist the Trump agenda.
