You can sign up for notifications on town halls. One thing to talk about during town halls in the upcoming recess is where the Congressperson stands on budget issues--they may not have thought it through, and just want to be able to say they're "efficient" or "cut taxes" but we can let them know that they should maintain, and preferably increase, funding for vital programs, and they should cut back on militarized policing and military boondoggles that even the Pentagon doesn't want.

On the immigration front, the president decides how many refugees will be admitted in a given year, and no one can change this number. However, Congress decides how much money is appropriated for resettlement of refugees who are already here.

Here's an excellent link: https://qz.com/945261/how-to-get-a-personal-vpn-and-why-you-need-one-now/
If you already use a VPN, feel free to share your experiences of it in the comments. (There's a link buried in the middle of the article linked above -- which really is excellent! -- that compares VPN providers on a number of measures: https://thatoneprivacysite.net/vpn-comparison-chart/)
