Small Actions to make a Big Difference
Remember, we can knit as a political act, but we can’t let our knitting take the place of more traditional activism. Sign up to get one text a day and commit to calling your representatives daily. It takes less than 2 minutes a day. If enough of us take this small action, we can be a big influence. All you have to do is text the word DAILY to the number 228466 (A-C-T-I-O-N). Or you can sign up on this web page. You’ll be prompted to enter your ZIP code and that’s it—you’re signed up. You will subsequently receive one text message every workday about an issue that we have determined to be urgent based on where you live. You tap on the phone number in your message, listen to a short recording about that day’s issue, and from there you’ll be automatically routed to your Senator, member of Congress, or other relevant elected official. In 90 seconds, you can conscientiously object and be done with it.
