Today’s Action: Send texts to win a Senate seat in Texas!

Democratic Senate candidate Beto O’Rourke is coming in strong against Texas Republican incumbent Ted Cruz, in a race that could produce the first Democratic Texas Senator in over 25 years. O’Rourke is a fully progressive candidate on every issue: in favor of the DREAM Act, pro-choice, and in support of the ACA and expanding Medicaid. He is in radical opposition to Cruz’ complete commitment to the destructive Trump-Republican agenda.

O’Rourke is neck and neck Cruz in the polls – and he gives us a solid shot of breaking the Republican majority in the Senate. But Texas historically claims some of the lowest midterm voter turnout in the nation due to gerrymandering and repressive voting laws.

We’re going to need every single Texas Democrat showing up to the polls on November 6 to win this seat — and Flippable is helping to get out the vote with Thursday Textbanks for Texas every Thursday, today through November 1.

Sign up to send text messages to Texas Democrats from the comfort of your home (and without having to talk to anyone!), urging voters in the Lonestar State to show up to the polls on November 6!

Time for some real talk. ‘Just voting’ is no longer good enough if we’re going to defeat Trump’s agenda. We’re facing a revved up Republican base, eager to keep their xenophobic and isolationist United States moving in the same direction it’s been the past two years. And they are bolstered by some of the worst gerrymandering and voter restriction laws our country has seen in recent years.

But we’re part of the #BlueWave, which has been flipping GOP seats across the country — and which exists because of people like you who are willing and ready to do a little bit more than “just vote.” The Blue Wave is making calls, sending texts, knocking on doors, and marching the streets to face and defeat the ugliness.

Thanks for doing your part. And this is the next step.

Sign up for a Thursday Textbank shift TODAY through November 1 to win Beto O’Rourke a Senate seat in Texas. Send Texas Democrats the encouragement they need to show up to vote on November 6!

Today’s Action: Say no to more funding for child detention centers and ICE

In what can only be described as an “of course you did that” move, the Trump Administration has announced they will divert $266 million from refugee funding, Head Start programs (early childhood education for low income Pre-K), cancer and HIV/AIDS research, Medicare/Medicaid, women’s shelters, and mental health support…in order to pay for more immigrant child detention centers.

Of course that’s his plan. More than 13,300 children are currently under federal custody. 16 months ago, that number was 2,400. And this 550% increase is not at all due to higher numbers of children crossing borders.

Trump’s utterly broken immigration system is leaching funding from worthy agencies that provide vital services due to being at full capacity, with 43,000 refugee seekers detained on any given day. Resources are so stretched that ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) has called for an additional $1 billion, with threats that imprisoned immigrants are going to see “reductions in services.” (ICE isn’t considering, you know, releasing them instead.)

Congress must speak up to stop this bloated momentum, just as they successfully did this summer to fight family separation.

Call or email your Members of Congress and urge them to take a strong public stance against any additional funds assisting Trump’s broken immigration system. Tell them: no Head Start, refugee, FEMA, or cancer research funds for child detention centers, and no more funding for ICE.

Let’s be clear: we absolutely want these children and adult refugee seekers to be properly cared for. But Trump’s Zero Tolerance policy, which has caused this devastation, will only survive long-term if he has the money to pay for it and public support to move forward.

The programs Trump’s proposing to steal from are bipartisan issues. Maintaining Medicare/Medicaid were promises he made to his own voters. Head Start is used by families of every race and in every state across the nation. And cancer doesn’t keep in party lines.

This battle is something Congress can and must enter – but it’s up to us to urge them along.

Email or call (202.224.3121) your Members of Congress and tell them to speak out publicly against Trump’s proposed funding increases of child detention centers and ICE. Tell them: no Head Start, refugee, or cancer research funds for child prisons, and no additional funding for ICE.

Today’s Action: Stop the Kavanaugh vote TODAY in the Senate

The Senate is expected to vote TODAY to close the debate on Supreme Court nominee (and accused sexual assailant) Brett Kavanaugh. If it passes, his confirmation vote will occur as soon as tomorrow morning.

Their vote today will be partially determined by the freshly released and for-their-eyes-only FBI “investigation,” which:

  • Began with an exceptionally narrow witness list, handpicked by the GOP
  • Did not include ANY interview of Kavanaugh, or his first and third accusers Dr. Christine Blasey Ford and Julie Swetnick
  • Skipped more than 20 witness names provided by Kavanaugh’s second accuser, Deborah Ramirez, and many others who tried to contact the FBI and received no response

This investigation is a sham, a public disgrace, and a mockery of the courage these women have shown in facing the GOP’s wrath to speak the truth for all our benefit. And our Senators need to hear about it this morning before the vote.

Call (202.224.3121) your Senators IMMEDIATELY and tell them being convinced by this sham “investigation” is unacceptable. Tell them a vote for Kavanaugh is a vote against sexual assault survivors everywhere.

If there was any question as to whether this nomination has been defined by the GOP’s outright hatred of women – from the nomination of a man designated to eradicate Roe v. Wade to the character assassination of Kavanaugh’s accusers – Trump’s recent speech claiming it’s a “scary time” for young men made it perfectly clear.

26 years ago, Senate refused to believe Anita Hill and used a skewed, expedited FBI investigation to discredit her – and that Justice is still on the bench, wielding his power against women’s rights at every turn. Today, we face an identical scenario. This is the Senate’s last chance to show they have learned from their own mistakes.

You’ve already called your Senators — but it’s vital they hear your demands again today. Call them at (202.224.3121) and tell them to #BelieveSurvivors. Remind them again you’ll be voting them out in November if they don’t make the right choice.

Today’s Action: Demand a thorough and fair FBI Investigation for Kavanaugh

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) is driving toward a vote on Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh by this weekend. But the FBI has concluded their “supplemental background check” without interviewing multiple key witnesses who have been struggling to contact the investigators.

Some of those gaps? Kavanaugh himself, his first and third accusers Dr. Christine Blasey Ford and Julie Swetnick (whose statement was not even addressed in this investigation), and names identified by his second accuser, Deborah Ramirez

The report will also not be made available to the public or the press — ensuring secrecy of exactly how much McConnell and Trump skewed the findings through their handcuffing of the FBI’s scope.

This is a scam, a fallacy of actual justice and truth. Dr. Ford, Ms. Ramirez, and Ms. Swetnick deserve a thorough investigation — and so do we.

Call or email your Senators and demand they call for a proper and thorough FBI examination — not the gap-ridden, GOP-manipulated supplemental background check provided by McConnell and Trump.

Before allegations of sexual misconduct emerged, Kavanaugh was already the most scandal plagued Supreme Court nominee in modern history, having lied and misled the Senate under oath even as Republicans refused to disclose thousands of documents relevant to his nomination. He was also handpicked for his position against prosecuting sitting presidents and his opposition to Roe v. Wade.

And yet, Kavanaugh, Trump, and Senate Republicans’ handling of these sexual assault allegations is worse yet. Republicans have sent a signal that they want Kavanaugh confirmed not because they don’t believe he has committed these heinous acts but because they don’t care.

That is beyond unacceptable. For Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, Deborah Ramirez, and Julie Swetnick, we must be better. For the countless victims inspired by their courage to come forward with their own stories, we must be better. For the integrity of the Supreme Court, the Senate, and the future of our country, we must be better.

Email or call (202.224.3121) your Senators and tell them we MUST have a thorough FBI investigation of Brett Kavanaugh, not one dictated by Trump and McConnell to ensure the GOP agenda stays on top.

Today’s Action: Demand the House pass permanent funding for the Violence Against Women Act

Every 16 hours in the United States, a woman is killed by her intimate partner with a gun. A staggering statistic that only scratches the surface of the variety and lethality in which millions of women face assault and brutality on a daily basis.

The Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) was enacted in 1994 in the aftermath of sexual harassment allegations by Anita Hill against then-nominee Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas. This landmark legislation has provided abused, battered, and stalked women with vital support networks: rape crisis centers, shelters, legal assistance, counseling, and more.

Twenty four years later, Senate Republicans drive toward a second Supreme Court justice with a history of sexual misconduct…and the House has just allowed the VAWA to expire without a single Republican co-sponsor pushing it forward.

Which means the House must act immediately to prevent another crisis of its own making.

Call or email your Representatives and demand they co-sponsor and push forward the Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act of 2018. Tell them we need permanent funding – not temporary solutions – for this necessary and life-saving legislation.

We need this act. Introduced by Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX), this act will strengthen law enforcement’s ability to remove firearms from abusers, increase funding for rape crisis centers, and provide support for victims of domestic violence.

The act currently has 163 Democrat co-signers…and zero Republicans. And although the House has passed a stop-gap bill that provides temporary funding through December 7th, House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) has refused all calls (even from his own party) to allow a vote on full authorization.

The GOP is really going out of its way to these days to prove their disrespect and carelessness towards women. So its time to turn up the volume and prove how much we care by taking action today.

Email or call (202.224.3121) your Representatives and tell them to prioritize the Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act of 2018. Anything less than permanent funding and full support is dangerous to the lives of millions of women, and we refuse to stand for it.

Today’s Action: Demand a REAL investigation into sexual assault allegations against Brett Kavanaugh

Yesterday, the country watched an historic hearing in two very different acts.

In the first, we witnessed a woman courageously come forward to share her traumatic experience of sexual assault. Motivated only by what she described as her “civic duty,” Dr. Christine Blasey Ford had nothing to gain by going public and already sacrificed her quiet, peaceful life, faced threats of violence, and been forced out of her home into hiding. She candidly answered hours of personal questions, alternately from Democrats and a private prosecutor hired by Republicans to discredit her.

In the starkest of contrast, Brett Kavanaugh then came forward in a brazen display of rage and entitlement, evading question after question, careful not to disparage Dr. Ford by name but indignant that he had to dignify her allegations with a response. To him and the committee Republicans who railed in his defense but had been too cowardly to even face Dr. Ford, it was clear that it was Kavanaugh, not sexual assault survivors, who were the real victims.

Throughout the hearing, Democrats had a consistent message: let the FBI investigate so we can know the truth. After all, if Kavanaugh is innocent as Republicans insist, an investigation would only further his cause. And yet, despite the precedent, Republicans refuse.

Don’t stand for it. Contact your Senators today and call for an immediate FBI investigation — BEFORE Kavanaugh’s confirmation vote.

Before allegations of sexual misconduct emerged, Kavanaugh was already the most scandal plagued Supreme Court nominee in modern history, having lied and misled the Senate under oath even as Republicans refused to disclose thousands of documents relevant to his nomination. He was also handpicked for his position against prosecuting sitting presidents and his opposition to Roe v. Wade.

And yet, Kavanaugh, Trump, and Senate Republicans’ handling of these allegations is worse yet. In refusing to investigate, refusing to let the facts come out, refusing to even hear from all Kavanaugh’s accuser and witnesses, Republicans have sent a signal that they want Kavanaugh confirmed not because they don’t believe he has committed these heinous acts but because they don’t care.

That is beyond unacceptable. For Dr. Ford, we have to be better than that. For the countless victims inspired by her courage to come forward with their own stories, we must be better than that. For the integrity of the Supreme Court, the Senate, and the future of our country, we must be better.

That’s why it’s so important that we all call (202.224.3121) or email our Senators today and tell them to call for an FBI investigation into allegations of sexual assault by Brett Kavanaugh before his confirmation hearing.

Victims’ stories matter. The truth matters.
