Learn the rules

DAY TEN – 2.5 hours

To be effective is to understand how the game is played. Recently, former hill staffers came out with the Indivisible Guide, a how-to guide for advocacy. Note: this guide is focused on political strategy and activism using the tools of the (predominantly white) system. It doesn’t cover everything, but it’s a good start. Daily Dues will feature social, cultural and economic activism in the coming weeks.


Already read the guide and contacted your legislators? Then take it a step further and check out swingleft.org. It’s a site dedicated to focusing liberals on the swing districts that have allowed conservatives to take hold of our Congress and state governments (you know, the actual lawmakers that affect your day-to-day).
