1460 Days of Action – Daily Tasks to #Resist Trump

Startups & Initiatives

1460

Another organization that popped up in resistance to the Trump Administration, 1460 Days of Action provides a toolkit of ideas on how to get involved in the political process and how to effectively resist the new administration.

Their website provides links to advocacy organizations, instructions on how to best communicate with an elected official, and encourages everyone to stand up for anyone who is being harassed, bullied, or violated. Their “Toolkit for Change” is simple, with five ways to empower yourself for resistance. With short, easy titles for each “tool” – Know, Be Heard, Act, Support, and Lead – they show users just how easy it is to engage in the political process and actually be effective in doing so.

1460 Days of Action encourages every day citizens to become politically engaged, proving that anyone can and should be an activist in resistance. The toolkit starts with “Know”, which provides helpful links to learn about what rights we have as citizens and what rights our friends have as immigrants. For people who have never called or met face to face with an elected Representative or Senator, they provide guidelines under “Be Heard” on what to say and who to call in order to have the biggest impact. With a list of organizations in their “Support” and “Act” tools, anyone can find a way to make positive change in the issue areas that they care most about. And for those who want to make an even bigger impact by running for office or getting involved in campaigns, 1460’s “Lead” tool provides ways to learn how to do that as well.

To dive in and start using the toolkit yourself, go to their website at www.1460.live and learn what you can do to stand up and speak out over the next four years. Or for regular updates on the toolkit and daily calls to action, you can follow them on Twitter @1460Action and on Instagram @1460daysofaction.
