Actions! 2.18.-2.24.2019

Even the current president cannot create his own emergency. We will never be quiet again. We will not be complacent. And it will always be our business.

ACTIONS
Before you do anything else,
please use our Phone Scripts 2.18.-2.24.2019 to call our Members of Congress.

Now until April 2
Comment here about the current administration’s efforts to decrease funding for supplemental nutrition (SNAP). We cannot look away for even a moment - the damage being done is too great.

Read the bill, act on the bill
HR1,
which the Sen. Majority Leader called a thinly veiled attempt to get more Democrats to vote, is up for discussion. Here’s a link to the bill. If you agree that this would strengthen our democracy, call your MoC. (Indivisible national has some positive words for this legislation.)

HR8, sponsored by our own Rep. Mike Thompson, would implement improved background checks for gun ownership. The first hearing on this bill is scheduled for Feb. 8. If you cannot be in DC, make certain you read and react to the bill. Our MoCs need to hear from you. (Link to the bill.)

HR109 is the Green New Deal act, which is sponsored by both Representatives Huffman and Thompson, as well as a host of other members of the House. Several members of the Senate including Senator Kamala Harris, have also publicly supported it. If approved by both the House and the Senate, the president would have to decide whether to reject a bill that offers improved financial security, significant investment in infrastructure, and a path toward energy independence. Here’s a link to the bill as introduced.
