This Week’s Indivisible Actions: September 18-24

Your weekly Indivisible to-dos:

  1. STOP THE RETURN OF TRUMPCARE. TrumpCare is back and Republicans are as close as they've ever been to passing it. There are 12 days left for the Senate to ram healthcare through reconciliation with just 50 votes. This is TrumpCare's last stand. Call your senators ASAP and tell them to vote no on "Graham-Cassidy" using all the latest resources at TrumpCareTen.org.
  2. Don't let Trump use fear to trample on civil liberties. We stand in solidarity with those impacted by the horrific acts of violence in London. We also condemn Trump's knee-jerk rhetoric and irresponsible exploitation of this moment to promote expanding his bigoted Muslim ban. Find out what you can do to resist the Muslim ban at nomuslimbanever.com.
  3. Continue pressuring MoCs for a clean DREAM Act. Democratic Leaders Pelosi and Schumer continue to cultivate their cozy relationship with Trump. Last week, they announced a deal (to make a deal) on the DREAM Act with Trump. Contact your MoCs and use our call scripts to tell them that you want to see a "clean" DREAM Act.
  4. Tell your representative to protect people with disabilities and vote no on H.R. 620. We really shouldn't even have to say this (that's how outrageous this bill is), but we need you to call your representative and tell them to vote no on H.R. 620 should it come to the House floor for a vote. As noted by Human Rights watch, this bill "would very deliberately undermine the protections afforded under the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA)" and would "dramatically increase the burden on any person with a disability who seeks to vindicate their rights."
  5. Blue state/red state calling tool is back: help fund calls to stop TrumpCare once and for all. We're pulling out all the stops to end the latest reincarnation of TrumpCare. And we need your help to sponsor a call tool that will connect Indivisibles across the country with progressive constituents in Alaska, Arizona, Tennessee, and West Virginia, to encourage them to call their Senators.

This Week’s Indivisible Actions: September 11-17

From Indivisible's Indivisiblog

Your weekly Indivisible to-dos:

  1. Defend DACA recipients. Tell your members of Congress (MoCs) that you want the Dream Act attached to every must-pass bill in Congress using our new script and state-specific explainer. You can also check out our comprehensive resource on how to stand up for Dreamers and all immigrants—in partnership with United We Dream and the National Immigration Law Center—at standup.indivisibleguide.com. Help us spread the word.
  2. Oppose H.R. 3697. The House is expected to vote this Tuesday on a bill that criminalizes immigrants, including those fleeing gang violence, and allows more of them to be detained and deported. It also affects vulnerable populations such as asylum seekers, TPS holders, and unaccompanied children. Tell your MoCs to vote no on H.R. 3697, the Criminal Alien Gang Member Removal Act.
  3. Oppose the Budget Resolution. Your House member should oppose the budget resolution expected on the House floor in two weeks, and your Senator should oppose any resolution that makes cuts to Medicaid, Medicare, or SNAP, and doesn't offset tax cuts with new revenue or closing loopholes. Hold them accountable using our new explainer and script.
  4. TrumpCare could be back this week… keep it dead. Keep an eye out for the return of TrumpCare by another name: "Graham-Cassidy." Under Senate rules, Republicans have until September 30 to make TrumpCare happen. Let's make sure it doesn't make a comeback—check out our new explainer.
  5. Prevent war with North Korea. Urge your MoC to speak out against Trump's warmongering with our explainer.
  6. Join #NoMuslimBanEver. We're proud partners of the #NoMuslimBanEver campaign. Head over to their new website at www.nomuslimbanever.com and join the campaign!
  7. Help us make Indivisible Regional Institutes a reality. We want to hold gatherings of Indivisibles throughout the country, to give core organizing trainings, improve connections and collaboration among groups, and deepen our sense of shared purpose as part of this movement. Help us fund this initiative—and help us unlock double the funds from a grant that will match your donation—so we can bring more people to more Institutes.
  8. Join Indivisible Policy Director Angel Padilla on Facebook Live at 8:30PM ET Monday. We know you have questions about Schumer and Pelosi's deal this week, what's next for the Dream Act, and other things happening on Capitol Hill. Come ready to ask them on Monday right on our Facebook page.
