The Silicon Valley Resistance Group
Start here! GET STARTED: http://www.svresistance.org/join Welcome to Silicon Valley Resistance Group (SVRG)! “I'm asking you to believe. Not in my ability to bring about change — but in yours.”- President Obama. The Silicon Valley Resistance Group is here to help each of you contribute meaningfully to the path forward for this country. We envision a leadership-rich organization of empowered teams organizing for change using proven organizing models employed by the Farm Workers Movement and the Obama campaign. We will provide training, tools and support...we need YOU to make the work happen. Our Group’s Focus: We are focused on three major efforts: - Redistricting (long term) - Flipping the house and senate (mid-term) - Resistance against the Trump Agenda (executive orders, appointments, legislation, Supreme Court nominees, women’s rights, immigration, etc.) Partnerships: We partner with a number of groups, locally and nationally including Sister District, the Indivisible Guide and many others. Feel free to approach us with partnership opportunities. Resources/Getting Started: We've curated a number of tools to make taking meaningful action possible. To get the most out of how our group works and what we stand for, please take advantage of the following organizing tools. These tools and resources are here to get you fired up with our work ahead! - START by downloading and reading The Indivisible Guide: https://www.indivisibleguide.com/ - The Resistance Google Doc: Events and Other Organizing Groups https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1awSfd1M4J3jkOJt0QNvDVE1UqSGyWbSSl9xVl8ctMsI/edit?usp=sharing - Slack group - Auto inviter: https://sv-resistance.herokuapp.com/ Medium piece on picking your issue https://medium.com/@gisellehale/pick-an-issue-hold-them-accountable-5328c87592be#.xg32ar8tb Our Policy: THIS IS a group about ACTION, so publicizing or recruiting to mobilize for resistance events and groups, posting invitations to join local efforts, sharing articles about the resistance, organizing protests and house parties or sharing stories about resistance efforts are all welcomed activities! THIS IS NOT a place to complain about the new administration, to circulate online petitions (they don't work), to complain about the 2016 election, or to sell things or to post about subjects that are not related to our work at hand. Please join us by clicking on the link below and filling out a short form so that we can best direct you to the right space in our group. Thank you and looking forward to our work together!
