Pass a Local Resolution
It's time to protect our democracy
The bipartisan January 6th Select Committee has shown that Trump and his MAGA allies planned, promoted, and paid for a criminal conspiracy to overturn an election they knew they’d lost. And they didn’t stop there. The Far Right has continued to work to sabotage future elections by changing state laws, threatening state officials and packing election administration offices so that they can have the final say over election results – even when they lose.
Step 1: Craft your local resolution
A local resolution is an expression of support from a town or county body. Local resolutions are a great way to educate the public as well as send a strong signal to state and federal legislators that people care about democracy and the safe and reliable transfer of power.
Step 5: Planning for Passage of Your Resolution
You've got your council member on board. Now, it's time to engage other community leaders, spread the word on social, and gather community support.
Step 6: Engage the Media
Working with your local news to spread the word is a great way to educate your community and gather support. From press advisories to letters to the editor, we've got tools to make it happen.
