This week we talk about voting with your dollars, and how to check that the companies that you shop with
share your values:

- Twitter feed/likes/retweets
- Public Facebook/Instagram feeds.
- Also asking directly.

Make sure you are in contact with your representative, use Resistbot.
Outlines in Discourse, lovingly Purloined from LittleSkeinAnne: "My Instagram feed + website are
safe spaces to share civil discourse. Different viewpoints are OK, but it’s not OK make fiery or sarcastic
comments at me or others."
