Hi there, Anne --

After some dispiriting losses this week, Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer had a pep talk for all of us who have been fighting back against Donald Trump and his disastrous Cabinet picks:

"We didn't win with Betsy DeVos, because only two Republicans would cross over, but everyone now is going to watch her like a hawk when she tries to mess with public education.

We didn't win with Jeff Sessions, but he's going to be watched like a hawk when he deals with immigration and voting rights and civil rights because his record has been made so clear.

That will probably limit them in some of the bad things they can do. It certainly will encourage us to go after them in every way when they do those things."


And Anne, Factivists are going to be on the front lines holding them accountable.

Whether it's at the ballot box:

Or at a town hall:

Keep showing up -- load image


Or continuing to call your senators to vote "no" this week on one of Trump's most egregiously unqualified, anti-worker nominees, Andy Puzder:

Puzder is a problem -- load image


You're really making a difference:

Some good news -- load image


We're only three weeks into Donald Trump's presidency, and it's clear that this is going to be an endurance test for all of us looking to stop this administration from doing all the damage it's capable of. Keep recharging your batteries because our resistance is working -- but it's going to be a marathon, not a sprint:

Persist -- load image


As always, we're counting on you to keep tweeting, sharing, and otherwise getting the word out about what Donald Trump and his administration are up to. Thanks for everything you're doing -- it's working!

Talk soon,
