    Rapid Change of the Biden Administration

    As our January Political Wine drew to a close last month, the insurrection was starting at the U.S. Capitol. Since then, Trump was impeached for a second time; Joe Biden gave a stirring inaugural address; and the new administration has taken swift action to confront the various crises. February’s Political Wine will give us an opportunity to discuss these rapid changes.

    Political Power Hour

    Politics is not a spectator sport! Join us every 2nd & 4th Wednesday every month as we meet to take political action -- to engage our elected officials and policy makers on the issues.

    We will start the first few minutes of every meeting with calls to our elected officials in House and Senate -- you can call Congress for Free from France at 07 555 3 6446 (or 07 555 DOGGO) -- this connects callers automatically to the Capitol Switchboard, where you follow the prompts to be connected to your House Rep or Senators. 

    Never made constituency calls before? Don't worry, we will walk you through what to do including a call script. Every meeting we will also have new actions to take on the issues, together -- postcarding, phonebanking, textbanking, and more.

    Have an action to suggest? Contact Max Dunitz [email protected]
