Activism / resources - both of the articles below are AWESOME and MUST-READS. They are good for the activist soul, you guys.
* Protest and persist: why giving up hope is not an option (Guardian)

* What Calling Congress Achieves (New Yorker)

News / analysis
* Amid Trump resistance, Virginia Democrats see surge of candidates for House of Delegates (Richmond Times-Dispatch)

* Behind the Quiet State-by-State Fight Over Electric Vehicles (NYT)

* Democratic legislators in 30 states to rebut Trump's Congress address (USA Today). This was from 2/27 and I never heard about it, so I'm not sure how successful this legislation rollout was. But it seems like a step in the right direction?

* The Lessons of Obamacare (Vox). A long, in-depth retrospective of how the ACA was written and passed, its effects, and what we can takeaway from it with hindsight. Also, clearly there are a million articles being written on the AHCA, but Sarah Kliff is one of the top people covering it IMO. Colleague Matt Yglesias is also a solid twitter follow for this stuff.

* Why Sequestration Is Poised to Kill Trump's Budget (Atlantic). I don't really understand sequestration yet, but it was the first I'd heard of it and it seems pretty darned important (and also a great relief to those of us who think federal funding for Meals on Wheels and heating assistance for poor people are good things).
