Weekly Action Items


As the summer comes to a close, here are some tips for keeping action items to a manageable level:

•Pick one or two that are dire or you feel the most passionate about
•Select one item to tackle each day
•If you think there’s an issue not getting attention, let us know on Facebook or through email!

If you can do them all, that’s great! But we understand it can be overwhelming. With all that said, we need as many voices as we can get, so here’s this week’s action items!

I am horrified by the rise of white supremacy in America.
White supremacists say they believe Trump is supportive of their views and see Bannon, Miller, and Gorka as their advocates in the White House.

I urge [Sen/Rep____] to demand that Bannon, Miller and Gorka be dismissed from the White House.

Senator Gillibrand: 585.263.6250/202.224.4451

Script: I am calling from [ZIP] to express concern about two anti-abortion bills. H.R. 7 has just passed in the House and moves to the Senate to pull all funding for legal abortion in the US.
