The Trump Administration's misconduct has been relentless, overwhelming, aimed at wearing down resistance, and creating fear, confusion, and chaos. Expect it to continue.

In 2018 every member of the U.S. House of Representatives, 33 Senators, and 15 Governors are up for re-election. Plus many more on the all-important local levels. Call them. Call them again, and keep calling. Remind them that there will be consequences and that we are paying attention.
