Six Degrees of Resistance is a Brooklyn-based, grass-roots group that sends FREE packets of 60 postcards to Resistors in key Red and Purple states – pre-stamped and pre-addressed to their Members of Congress. Our Resistance partners just add their messages and mail the cards. Some share their cards with friends and family, some have postcard parties, some keep them all to themselves. (One Nevada Resistor wrote all of her 60 cards in one sitting! A South Dakota group is taking the cards to their booth at the County Fair!) Our postcards are always free. We only ask a commitment to mailing them all.
We reach seasoned, committed Resistors as well as people who’ve never been politically active. For some, sending these postcards is their very first political action beyond voting!
Since the project began in March 2017, Resistors in 24 Red and Purple states have sent out over 10,000 of our postcards. In 2018, we're expanding to more key states where more LOCAL pressure might convince GOP lawmakers to stand with AMERICA over Trump.
It’s tough to be a liberal surrounded by Trumpers. My family back in Missouri have told me it can be isolating, and even scary. They were my inspiration for Six Degrees of Resistance. The project has grown well beyond my family and friends, and is now inspiring Red-State Resistors across the country to action.
Help us amplify these important Red State voices, and create bonds between Blue and Red State Resistance communities. Because pressure on Congress works – especially LOCAL pressure! And in 2018, we’ve got to pour it on like never before to save our country from Trump!
Please help us reach our goal – because DEMOCRACY IS NOT A SPECTATOR SPORT!
