Weekly Actions: June 25, 2017

June 25, 2017

Dear PAGE Activist,

 

There is more be thankful for this week: two attorneys general have filed a suit against the president for emoluments violations (along with 200 lawmakers); the Muslim ban has been blocked again; a federal judge blocked the US Dept. of Justice’s efforts to deny immigrants legal counsel; a judge ordered a new environmental review for DAPL’ effects on the rights of Standing Rock and Cheyenne River tribes; the Southern Baptist convention denounced white supremacyjournalists retained access rights at the Capitol….and the Rhode Island teacher of the year is kind of awesome.

 

But there is still a lot left to do: affordable healthcare continues to be under attack - but with 5 Republican senators coming out against it, there is momentum that we can add our voices to! In the meanwhile, discrimination, hate and police brutality continues to deal terrible blows to Muslim and black communities and cops continue to be acquitted for shooting people of color (three this week!). Senator Kamala Harris was forced to persist in the face of being cut off while speaking.

 

Make your voice heard this week from abroad - make some calls, write some emails and tweets, and keep talking and supporting each other in your local PAGE chapters. Hold yourself accountable by documenting your actions! (Please note that if you want to anonymously edit the document, edit using Google Incognito or in a browser where you are not signed into your account.)

Priority actions:

  • Speak out for quality, affordable healthcare for all Americans.

    • Read about what the Senate Trumpcare bill does against Medicaidvulnerable peoplewomen’s health, and for increasing costs.

    • Call/email key senators: Use the daily updated call script to one of 11 Senators in 10 key states, or a general script if you are not a constituent of one of these Senators. Call and email them now to voice your opposition to the Senate bill.

    • Tweet the president. Script: Thanks, @realDonaldTrump. I agree that the #AHCA healthcare bill is mean. #MAGA @SenateGOP

  • Show your support for yet another woman who keeps persisting.

    • Learn about how women who speak out - online or in person - are consistently shut down or threatened with violence. Read The Guardian’s piece on comments on female journalists’ articles, and engage with local women’s rights groups where you live to learn how you can contribute.

    • Thank Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) for her tenacious, focused questioning in Sessions’ hearing. We see your leadership and your care for our country, and are very grateful. #shepersisted
