We all know from living the Indivisible Guide how effective it is for citizens to lobby their Members of Congress. We are excited that, just seven weeks into our existence, we have three Action groups up and running in all three cities in our district where our Rep. Lamar Smith has offices: Austin, San Antonio, and Kerrville.
It’s an incredible boon to our group to have the leadership, critical mass, and momentum to organize action in the Hill Country. In case you hadn’t heard, a grassroots rally with 37 participants at Rep. Smith’s office last Thursday in Kerrville landed on the front page of the Kerrville Daily Times. The Hill Country is an area where Rep. Smith feels comfortable and safe from criticism. He needs to know that there are Hill Country constituents who are not satisfied with his leadership or policy decisions in Washington. Now that we’ve made a big splash in Kerrville, it’s time to turn that energy into repeatable waves of action, with regular visits to Rep. Smith’s Kerrville office. Read on for your Action.
