“Excuse me, Senator…” : Indivisibles Are Bird-Dogging With The Best Of ‘Em

Last August Recess, with many members of Congress refusing to schedule traditional town halls, we encouraged Indivisible groups to start getting ready to do some “bird-dogging,” or confronting your lawmaker at a public appearance and asking them tough questions.

When it’s done well, bird-dogging can make for great headlines–and seriously put a politician on the spot.

You guys did it really, really well.

With October recess ahead, here are just a handful of highlights from last recess. We’re excited to see what you get up to this time!
