#Shutdown CTAs

53,200 Federal employees work in Colorado. They are working without pay or not working at all.  And the rest of us? We run the stores & restaurants workers aren’t frequenting; we go to the parks filling up with garbage; we run small businesses that need permits; we go to the courts that are closing.

Americans brainwashed by the right don’t understand that 1. Government is  improves all our lives locally in significant ways 2. Government workers are people who bear little resemblance to horrors in the GOP Admin.

It’s on us resisters, again, to help the people hurting, and to elevate the issue.



  1. Make calls to End the #Shutdown through connecting voters with representatives in key states! 

2.  January 23: CALL CALL CALL! ONE NUMBER TO CALL ALL: Looks like a Senate Vote Thursday on Trump’s awful response–don’t let our Dems Waver!  Call 1-844-236-2373.

3. Help those who are hurting!    This link will take you to a means to order food and goods for Denver-area furloughed workers. Create a list for your area! The hurt won’t stop even if the gov. reopens.


5. Rush Hour Friday! #Corner the Shutdown!  MOVED TO TUESDAY, JANUARY

29th to coincide with national actions. 

This event needs all of us, everywhere!  Organize an event near you–and promote it! Sign-up in the comments on this Facebook page. Let people know, by holding signs on streetcorners that “WE ARE SHUTDOWN!” Hold signs that say how YOU are impacted by the shutdown, and that say how many times the Dems have votes to REOPEN the government.  Help organize and participate!
