Resist Trump Tuesday
Every Tuesday during Donald Trump's first 100 days in office, we organized "Resist Trump Tuesday" visits to the offices of our Members of Congress. Based on current events, issues were determined each week prior to the event and talking points were provided. We met outside the office and held a rally in opposition/support depending on the topic. Each week Constituents brought a wide array of creative and clever homemade signs and took turns addressing MoC staff members with their own questions and concerns..

Representative Office Visits
At our Spring Training event we invited attendees to join a team that's making a real difference!
Our Members of Congress (“MoCs”) work for us so we taught people how to make them listen
with practical, hands-on training. They learned real-world skills needed to:
- Call and/or visit MoCs -
- Write letters to the editor and/or MoCs -
- Make video recaps of actions -
- Amplify messages on social media -
Hosted by Missouri Senator Will Kraus
with participation from Indivisible KC and
Progressive Social Network Lee's Summit
In early April, Missouri Senator Kraus held a constituent coffee to meet with residents of MO's 8th district. This was an opportunity to give them a chance to ask questions about the issues that concern them most.
In Kansas, Governor Brownback vetoed Medicaid expansion but the legislature needed only a few more votes to override the veto. Indivisible KC and Kansas constituents attended this legislative town hall to tell their Representatives why to expand KanCare.
