Weekly Actions: Nov. 5, 2017
November 5, 2017
Dear PAGE Activist,
On November 8th, it will have been one year since the shocking 2016 presidential election. We should all take a moment and reflect on how this has changed things at home and abroad. We should also think about all of the work that has been done to fight against Trump’s agenda and to build a better future. This “new year” let’s move forward with the spirit of the Twitter worker deleted @realDonaldTrump’s Twitter account, granting us a few minutes of sweet, sweet respite.
This week, we focus on renewing our commitment PAGE, continuing to oppose Trump’s tax reform, and Get Out The Vote in November’s special elections
As always, our weekly actions are curated for US-Americans abroad and global citizens. If this is your first time receiving a PAGE email, please check out our website and other resources for starting a PAGE group.
PAGE Global Coordinating Committee
Observe PAGE’s “Anniversary”. It has been a year since many of us were shocked to action by the election of President Donald J. Trump (still hard to believe!); it’s time for some reflection and a recommitment to this work.
Host a special PAGE event where you discuss what has worked for your chapter and what changes you can make to have more impact.
Send us a photo of you or your group in action and we’ll feature it on our social media. We want to see all of your beautiful faces to celebrate how much we’ve grown.
Send a message to tell us what we can do better. The PAGE Global Coordinating Committee would love to hear from you! Send us some constructive feedback, new ideas, or just feelings of support!
Stop the Trump Tax Scam. On Nov. 1st, the GOP released their tax plan.
Read an analysis on the tax plan. Learn how it will affect you and your loved ones- and how the rich will keep getting richer. While the tax cuts for large corporations are reason enough to oppose the plan, there are many other terrible aspects totally unrelated to taxes, such as some anti-abortion language.
Call your representative and ask them to oppose the reform plan. Use this 5Calls script as a reference.
Get Out the Vote! Special elections in Virginia, New Jersey, Florida, as well as several countries throughout the United States (Missouri, Massachusetts,) are happening this week. Although 2018 will be the crucial time to flip the House and Senate, special elections this year are critical as we can send a message to Republicans that voters reject Trump’s agenda.
Start calling voters! Use Democrats Abroad’s system to help you encourage residents of VA, NJ and FL to vote. This site has simple, easy-to-follow instructions on how to get started. Organize an event with your PAGE chapter and call as a group.
Encourage friends and family to vote. Find their polling place (New Jersey & Virginia) and tell them where to go! Facebook message, WhatsApp message, email, and call- do what you can to GOTV!
