I looked up the NYC Resistance page and now this one, and it's a bit surprising at how... not-active they are.
Is it me, or does it seem like people just want to do the bare minimum? Marches and walk-outs are kind of easy to organize because it's very visible and trendy (?) but it doesn't seem like there's enough people doing behind-the-scenes work.
Am I wrong? IDK, like there was a great interest in activism when Trump got elected, but I haven't seen many people follow through.
Okay so I never was interested in politics in any way about a year ago. I have no news antibodies. I've spent the last year stressing out. I need to do something. How's this activism thing work? What's the most effective way to cause change? Do I go volunteer for a politician? My area is very liberal so I feel like a Democrat will already win. I realize I should be thinking local not global or something but I don't see a problem with local politics. Do I go make a cardboard sign and join a crowd? Honestly that doesn't seem like the best use of my time. Man a call center? I guess maybe. Spray paint slogans? Idk how to do that but I could figure it out. Our country seems to be under attack and run by traitors. I'm all for listening to all sides and I view myself as really moderate. But Republicans are traitors. How can I go about making sure as few Republicans hold office in this country as possible? I've never been involved in politics and the only person I know who was is my grandma.
