- FUNDRAI$E FOR US REBELS The ACLU raised five times their annual budget over one weekend. This is great news because they can hire more lawyers & more support staff.
The Rebel Action Network might be lesser known, but we are no less effective. And we are the only civil liberties activist organization with education & action programs for their members....free.
Please consider hosting a fundraiser so that Rebel Action Network can take our brand of badasserey to the next level. Fundraising ideas for inspiration here.
MEET YOUR CONGRESSIONAL REPRESENTATIVE & BEFRIEND THEIR STAFF You've called, you've emailed, now it's time to place the face with the name. People respond to requests 75% faster and favors 80% more when they have a pre-existing connection with the person asking. Most of our Senators & House Representatives are going to be in DC, which gives us the open opportunity to introduce ourselves to the field directors & others in the local office who work on issues of concern to your district.
SEE IF YOUR REP IS ON THE BLACK LIST The Congress members & Governors who have not publically disavowed the unconstitutional Muslim ban are highlighted in yellow. These are the people that need to be removed from office.
