Kind of a linkdump? I've been reading a ton on ffa, although sometimes I have to step away because the predictions are just too dire for me to handle. But I've also gotten a ton of great info from there, as well as from my flist.

Explainers for Breitbart, Bannon, and Milo

Top House Oversight Democrat asks for hearings on Trump’s conflicts of interest - maybe something to talk to your congressperson about?

A letter circulating in the House "requesting Trump rescind his appointment of Steve Bannon. So far at 120 co-signers." Something else to mention to your congressperson, maybe.

Speaking of, here is how to find your congressperson based on your zip, although I had to then google mine to get a phone number. And if you can call them on the phone, you should.

If you want to volunteer time/money, here is a site that helps you get started finding places, with a bunch of very satisfying swearing.

And if you need help getting/staying motivated, here is a message from President Obama to grassroots organizers and all of us.

Very welcome! I figured the world has "why to be terrified" covered well enough :|

I found out that going to ballotpedia and searching your representatives/senators gives you a very comprehensive run down on where they stand on issues both historically and otherwise. It's really useful for getting caught up to speed on who they are and what direction to lean on when making arguments (Do you argue that X is bad for racial minorities? lgbt? religious freedom?) https://ballotpedia.org/Main_Page

Other resource (that the ballotpedia references) is the ACLU insidegov page, which has similar info, but also includes district/state demographics information which is pretty interesting as well: http://members-of-congress.insidegov.com/
