How We Do It:

The overarching objective is to initiate actions which will answer the question: “What can I do now?” The strategy is to facilitate actions that can be taken on a daily basis, incorporated into daily routine.


Volunteer Network

Face2Face establishes an issues based volunteer network which guides visitors through the website, to the preeminent existing and emerging supporting organizations. Through face to face meetings at the local and regional level, and communication through the website, volunteers can maintain an ongoing conversation in order to focus volunteer resources where they can maximize impact and influence. Numbers matter!


Analyze Legislation

Face2Face tracks and offers analysis of legislative and executive actions. It urges visitors, when weighing the merits of a position, to ask three key questions: Is the legislation or action Moral, is it Constitutional, and is it Practical—for instance does it have negative monetary consequences and/or unforeseen impact? (The MCP analysis)

Face2Face assists in elected official outreach by identifying and listing key officials on state, federal, and committee levels for each key legislative action. This will assist visitors in communicating their MCP analysis directly, thoughtfully, factually, and resolutely on each action taken by the Administration where resistance is mandated.


Engage Others

Face2Face promotes responsible civics and civility to advocate and persuade the citizenry to join in its resistance efforts and advance its cause. Direct communication through meetings and presentations in a variety of venues will be used.
