đŸ”¥Resistance. Every. Day.đŸ”¥

đŸ”¥Resistance. Every. Day. đŸ”¥

1. Called Senators Cornyn and Cruz and urged them not to support the current Senate Healthcare Bill. 

2. Sent postcards to Rep. Pete Olson and Senators Cornyn and Cruz:
I am worried and upset that the US is detaining young children for years because their asylum status is contested. America should be a place of refuge.  It is inhumane to lock up endangered children. Will you please follow Sen. Casey’s lead and advocate to Sec. Kelly for their release pending court decisions? Thank you. 


Sent emails (voicemail full) to Senators Cornyn and Cruz:
     Hi. I’m concerned about cuts to services for kids in special ed programs. I believe we have a responsibility to fully support all learners. The Senate healthcare bill strips Medicaid funding which currently covers essential tools, staff, and screenings to give these kids a fair chance. I oppose the bill for many reasons, but this one is critical. 

Sent Thank You to Senator Elizabeth Warren for her words of encouragement on Samantha Bee's show. 

đŸ”¥Resistance. Every. Day.đŸ”¥

Called Rep. Pete Olson and Senators Cornyn and Cruz:
I’m calling to express my concern for recent news about the hacking of US power plants. With Russia’s election hacking last fall as well, I’m concerned that our president and members of congress are not taking these threats seriously. I support strong sanctions against Russia to address these forms of foreign aggression? Thank you.

Sent postcards to Rep. Pete Olson and Senators Cornyn and Cruz:
I am confused about why Ivanka Trump posted a photo of herself and Jared Kushner on twitter saying, “We...are looking forward to productive discussions at the G20 Hamburg Summit!” Aren’t discussions the president’s job? Why are the president’s unelected daughter and son-in-law doing the president’s job? This makes the US look like a banana republic.  

đŸ”¥Resistance. Every. Day. đŸ”¥

Email Pete Olson:
 I am writing to express deep concern for H.B. 2936. This bill attempts to expedite logging up to 30,000 acres--an area the size of Disney World--without considering environmental impacts. I’m concerned it empowers timber companies at the expense of public input, judicial review of projects, and Endangered Species Act protections. I oppose this unethical bill and want you to do the same. Thank you.

đŸ”¥Resistance. Every. Day.đŸ”¥

1. Signed online petition supporting continuation of protection of DACA students.  

2. Sent email to Texas Secretary of State, Rolando Pablos, shaming him for his blatant efforts to deport DACA youth. 

3. Sent thank you postcard to Senator Lindsey Graham for speaking out about Donald Trump Jr.'s meeting with the Russians and for his tenacious grilling of FBI Director Nominee Christopher Wray. 

đŸ”¥Resistance. Every. Day.đŸ”¥

Sent email to Rep. Pete Olson and Senators Cornyn and Cruz:
I understand that funding for a $2.1 billion border wall is in the 2018 budget. I want to be clear that I will never, ever support this. I want my tax dollar to support things like schools, bridges, medical care, public housing, and food stamps, not a border wall. Especially since a wall won’t solve the drug trade problem, violates sacred Native lands, and puts 93 endangered species at risk. 

Sent postcards to Rep. Pete Olson and Senators Cornyn and Cruz:

Sent Thank You to Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel for posting the EPA's deleted climate science data.
