đŸ”¥Resistance. Every. Day.đŸ”¥

Called Rep. Pete Olson and Senators Cornyn and Cruz:
I’m calling about the US Dept. of Health and Human Services new division that condones discrimination against our own citizens. The denial of medical treatment is unconscionable and risks our neighbors’ lives. I don’t want providers who discriminate to receive governmental compensation. I oppose religion based discrimination. 

Thank You note to Senator Susan Collins (R-ME) 
Thank You for your commitment to bipartisanship and dialog. I’m especially grateful for your recent efforts to gather senators of both parties and find a solution to keep 800,000 Dreamers stateside. In times of increasing polarization, your leadership is even more remarkable. Thank you.
Address: 68 Sewall Street, Room 507, Augusta, ME 04330

đŸ”¥Resistance. Every. Day.đŸ”¥ 

Emailed Rep. Pete Olson and Senators Cornyn and Cruz:
I’m concerned about the president’s anti-immigrant agenda. People who immigrate to the U.S. from other countries bring new jobs, create new business, and enrich our communities. I want you to support the Dream Act (S.1615/H.R. 3440), family unification, and no funding for a wasteful wall or surplus border staffing. Thank you.

Thank You note to Sheriff Stacey A. Kincaid (D-VA):
Thank You for terminating an agreement with ICE to hold inmates beyond the duration of their jail sentences to enable possible deportation. I am also grateful that ICE must now produce a court-issued criminal detainer to hold any person. I appreciate your decision to respect and protect the precious few rights of undocumented people. 
Address: 12000 Government Center Parkway, Fairfax, VA 22030

đŸ”¥Resistance. Every. Day.đŸ”¥

Called Senators Cornyn and Cruz:
I’m calling about The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB). I can’t understand why Mick Mulvaney would dismantle an agency that has given $12 billion in restitution to 29 million consumers in 6 years. I expect my government to protect me and my neighbors from predatory and discriminatory lenders. So, I am asking you for two things. First, I would like you to hold Mr. Mulvaney accountable for this failure to protect consumers. Second, when S. 2155 goes to the floor, I would like them to oppose it. Dodd-Frank protects Americans. Thank you.

Thank you note to Senator Lindsey Graham:
Thank You for opposing Stephen Miller’s role in the negotiations over immigration and working in a bipartisan way. Thank you.
Address: 508 Hampton Street, Suite 202, Columbia, SC 29201

Postcard to HHS Secretary Azar:
HHS Secretary, Dept. Health & Human Services, 200 Independence Avenue, S.W., Washington, D.C. 20201
Dear Sec. Azar, I’m writing about Scott Lloyd, Director of Refugee Resettlement. Any person who blocks women’s access to legal abortion and legal council does not respect the law. His attempts to intervene during one woman’s abortion is outrageous and unacceptable. Please show common decency and dismiss Scott Lloyd. Thank you.

Thank you notes to:
Senators Susan Collins (R-ME) and Tammy Baldwin (D-WI) 
Thank You for seeing through the RAISE Family Caregivers Act that the president recently signed into law. Thank you for addressing the needs of caregivers, along with aging people and people with disabilities who receive care and want to stay in their own homes.
Address (SC): 68 Sewall Street, Room 507, Augusta, ME 04330
Address (TB): 633 W. Wisconsin Ave, Suite 1920, Milwaukee, WI 53203

Email to Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross:
A citizenship question on the 2020 Census is unreasonable. Your reasoning for it is a thinly-veiled re-wording of the president’s unfounded claims about fraudulent voting by undocumented people. Mr. Ross, citizenship data is already collected by the American Community Survey. Changing the Census will cost the American taxpayer hundreds of millions of dollars and create measurably worse results. It will deny countless people appropriate representation in Congress. Beyond pleasing the president, no agenda could be worth spending money on duplicate work, especially while basic funding and leadership needs in the Census Bureau go unmet. Reconsider. Thank you.

Thank you note to Senators John McCain and Chris Coons:
Thank you for developing a bipartisan immigration bill that protects Dreamers without funding a wall. I appreciate your bipartisanship and standing up for our neighbors. Thank you.
Address (JM): 2201 East Camelback Road Suite 115, Phoenix, Arizona 85016
