A group that operates an “independent” informational website about congressional town hall meetings was founded by a former Hillary Clinton campaign staffer and is closely aligned with numerous liberal organizations, according to a Free Beacon report.
Ties to progressive groups are so tight that the Town Hall Project’s parent company, The Action Network, is located at the same address as an organization funded by liberal billionaire George Soros.
The Town Hall Project was founded by Jimmy Dahman, a former field organizer for the Clinton campaign in Iowa who asserted on CNN that recent outbursts at town hall events held by Republican politicians are “all organic and happening at the grassroots level.” Democrats have eagerly backed his assessment of the disturbances, likening them to the actions of the Tea Party.
Despite Democrat claims, President Trump tweeted yesterday that the “so-called angry crowds in home districts of some Republicans are actually, in numerous occasions, planned out by liberal activists. Sad!”

Often referred to by the media, the Town Hall Project identifies itself as a “volunteer-powered, grassroots effort that empowers constituents across the country to have face-to-face conversations with their elected representatives.”
The website also notes that the group’s founders “are dedicated to progressive values and actively encourage progressive allies to use our town hall data.”

The Town Hall Project is working in tandem with MoveOn.org, a major progressive activist group that recently launched ResistanceRecess.com, a website that promotes activists’ attendance at town hall events.
The Action Network, the Town Hall Project’s parent company, is known for its involvement in protests against Walmart and in Ferguson.
The organization is located at the same Washington, D.C. address as United We Dream, the “largest immigrant youth-led organization in the nation,” funded by George Soros. After the election, United We Dream quickly organized “sanctuary campus” anti-Trump protests. Also located at the same address is the labor organizing group, Change to Win.
The Town Hall Project’s website directs visitors to the Indivisible Guide, a “practical guide for resisting the Trump agenda.” The guide features instructions on how to “organize local groups to fight for your congressional district” and reveals “four local advocacy tactics that actually work.”
