Repost from The Benicia Independent
By Roger Straw, November 14, 2018
Rachel Maddow hosted an important interview last night with Ezra Levin, co-author of the Indivisible Guide. Her 5-minute interview and the new Indivisible on Offense: A Practical Guide are exciting introductions to the work ahead in these next two years.
Main premise: Now that Democrats have taken control of the House, we are no longer ONLY playing on defense; we can now set agendas, advocate for new legislation and powerful oversight moves. The guide is a powerful tool for everyday folks like you and me.
P.S. – If you’re curious, here’s the original Indivisible: A Practical Guide For Resisting the Trump Agenda last updated in December, 2016. This guide was developed with the understanding that progressives had NO pull in the House, Senate or executive branch of government. Remember: it’s a whole new ball game now – see above!
