While making sure that Congress doesn’t fund Trump’s immigration priorities is important, there are also local policies your group can support that will help protect immigrant families. 
With vibrant, diverse, and passionate members but limited time, we know that it can sometimes be tough to make decisions efficiently. This guide covers four ways that your group could use to help reach decisions:
If progressives are going to stop Trump's agenda, we must stand indivisibly opposed to Trump and the Members of Congress (MoCs) who would do his bidding. Together, we have the power to resist—and we have the power to win.
