determine what your rights actually are and what the law requires.
gather solid information through research, FOIA, and Public Records Acts.

"When you see something that is not right, not just, not fair, you have a moral obligation to say something. To do something. Our children will ask us, 'What did you do? What did you say?' For some, this vote may be hard. But we have a mission and a mandate to be on the right side of history."
