We cannot be silent. We cannot wait for things to change. Wishing and hoping is not enough.
What can we do? What are we doing?
Rally. March. Call. Write. Act. And VOTE!
So many organizations are joining us and urging all of us to keep making calls and making change.
The Southern Poverty Law Center has recommended calling out-of district. Senator Murkowski is keeping track of calls - and not ignoring those that come from the lower 48. And the Democratic Senators need to hear how their decision will affect all of us.
Trump has chosen his nominee from a list compiled by the Federalist Society and the Heritage Foundation. Without question, these groups are committed to a hard-right agenda.
Our country deserves better.
Make your voice heard today! Contact the following six key senators – whose votes could make the difference – and tell them not to be a rubber stamp for the Federalist Society. Tell them to vote "no" on this Supreme Court nomination.

Postcard from Home in Sonoma Valley
Here is an opportunity to begin writing to Independent & NPP (no party preference) voters in CA-22 in support of ANDREW JANZ for Congress. He is trying to unseat Trump’s lapdog, Devin Nunes. Nunes won this district in 2016 by 35 points, but Trump only won this district by less than 10 points, which makes Nunes potentially vulnerable for 2018. (PLEASE NOTE: The messaging for this campaign cannot include any references to The Democratic Party or The Blue Wave.)
Please respond directly to firstname.lastname@example.org and indicate how many postcards you would like to commit to writing on behalf of Andrew Janz over the next 3 months (minimum request is 20). These can be written at home or during an upcoming postcarding session (with you covering the cost of supplies & postage).
ALL cards will be collected on/before Sept. 25th and mailed back to Janz's campaign (so that they can mail to voters from an in-district address).
