If you fell into that dark night of the soul in November of 2016, then woke up and knew you had to do something about this, these are your people too. Every week they have an informed, warm, spirited and often funny chat about the lunacy going on in this time we’re living through. And that’s not all- they’re also a great source of actions you can do to resist. I live in Oregon, so I like the Oregon focus, but I think they’d have national appeal, too.

Bloomberg’s misogyny.

Issues of the week: The budget and Barr

For the budget: My name is XX from XX zipcode. I am very concerned about Trump’s budget. It slashes our earned benefits and safety nets while promoting his racists agenda.  I ask the Senator/Rep to make sure the budget:

  • Stops any money from going to CBP until there is transparency into what they are doing and guardrails to stop them from targeting people of color
  • Has money for election security

For Barr: My name is XX from XX zipcode. Not only is Trump unhinged but Attorney General Barr is more open than ever he server Trump and not the country.  I ask the Senator/Rep to call for

  • the four prosecutors who quit the Roger Stone case to testify in the House before Barr does at the end of March. 
  • Attorney General Barr to resign

After you call Congress make your plan for 2020.  The time to get off the sidelines is now.

Issue of the week: Trump is unhinged 

For Senators: My name is XX from XX zipcode. I am very concerned that Trump and his GOP are continuing to undermine our elections.  Attorney General Barr is working with Rudy Giuliani! I ask the Senator to keep pushing for

  • the Senate to pass the election security measures passed in the House
  • hand marked paper ballots

For Representatives: My name is XX from XX zipcode. I am very concerned that Trump and his GOP are continuing to undermine our elections.  Attorney General Barr is working with Rudy Giuliani! I ask the Representative to introduce legislation criminalizing the solicitation of foreign power/information to initiate investigations of a political rival. We must protect our elections.

My name is XX from XX zipcode. I’m appalled by the coverup Trump’s lawyers and the GOP are perpetrating in the Senate and the increasing violence in Trump’s rhetoric.  I ask the Senator/Representative to  

  • Keep pushing for a fair Senate impeachment trial with witnesses and documents. 
  • Call on Republican Senators to condemn Trump’s threats against Adam Schiff.   

After you call Congress make your plan for 2020.  Only with sustained action that leads to record voter turnout across all levels of government will we be able start the end of Trump and his GOP.
