Today’s Action: Keep the pressure on to allow evidence at Trump’s trial

Donald Trump’s impeachment trial has begun. Technically. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s (R-KY) has broken with all judicial and impeachment precedent by refusing to allow any witnesses and evidence at the trial, with a clear goal of covering up the truth and forcing a brisk acquittal.

But we have something else in mind: transparency and the truth. This trial MUST include the key witnesses that Trump blocked from testifying before the House since exposing the truth of his crimes is dangerous for his presidency (and his ego).

Call or email your Senators and demand they vote to include new witnesses in Trump’s upcoming impeachment trial. Have an extra ten minutes to amplify your voice? Write a letter to your Senators, but send it to your local newspaper editor for publication!

Transparency in our highest office in the land is so infinitely more important than so-called partisan politics. Our Senators have taken a vow to uphold the Constitution, and this includes conducting a fair and open impeachment trial. The phone call you make today could be the tipping point to gathering those simple-majority votes needed to subpoena those whom Trump and McConnell want to keep silenced.

Email or call (202.224.3121) your Senators and demand they support a fair and open impeachment trial by voting to include new witnesses. Make your opinion count even more: send a letter to your local newspaper editor, calling out your Senators by name.

PS — Please don’t forget to sign the petition calling on Mitch McConnell to admit damning new evidence from Giuliani’s henchman at Trump’s impeachment trial, and check out the brilliant “Don’t Think of an Elephant” by George Lakoff — a quick read that contains the ultimate keys for Democrats to win elections — and arguments.

McConnell bows to pressure, changes impeachment trial rules in huge win for Dems

The fix is in. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and his lapdog GOP senators want to hold a condensed, sham impeachment trial for Donald Trump in the hopes of exonerating him in the eyes of the American public ahead of the 2020 election.

Earlier today, House Intelligence Committee Chairman and Democratic impeachment manager Adam Schiff slammed McConnell for trying to rig the trial, taking particular issue with McConnell’s push to limit impeachment managers to 24 hours over two days to make their cases.

Now, it appears that McConnell has caved.… [more]

Today’s Action: Trump’s trial begins today – demand witnesses!

Trump’s trial is about to begin in the Senate, and Republican Leader Mitch McConnell’s (R-KY) has released rules that would deny nearly all evidence and present the rest in ways deliberately designed to minimize public exposure. The goal is clear: cover-up Trump’s crimes and cruise to a brisk acquittal.

But we have something else in mind: transparency and the truth. This trial MUST include the key witnesses that Trump blocked from testifying before the House since exposing the truth of his crimes is dangerous for his presidency (and his ego).

Call or email your Senators and demand they vote to include new witnesses in Trump’s upcoming impeachment trial.

It isn’t just Democrats who see the vital need to include witnesses in this otherwise sham of a trial. Senator Susan Collins (R-ME) says she wants to see the testimony of those Trump and McConnell want to silence and is fighting to make it happen. Republican Senator Mitt Romney also says he’s open to it, and particularly one of the witnesses we really want to hear from. We only need four Republicans to join Democrats in voting for subpoena to bring a vital witness to Trump’s trial.

Transparency in our highest office in the land is so infinitely more important than so-called partisan politics. Our Senators have taken a vow to uphold the Constitution, and this includes conducting a fair and open impeachment trial. The phone call you make today could be the tipping point to gathering those simple-majority votes needed to subpoena those whom Trump and McConnell want to keep silenced.

Today’s Action: Volunteer for service on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day

Fun fact: Martin Luther King Jr. Day is the only federal holiday designated as a national day of service, for Americans to volunteer and serve their communities in a positive way, in honor of the example Dr. King set for us all.

And we need this holiday – because although there have been solid advances in the rights of Black Americans since Dr. King’s work in the 1950’s and 60’s, we are far from a place of true equality. In fact, we fall short of an egalitarian and just ideal in nearly every minority/underrepresented group, in every community across the country.

We encourage the OD Action community to honor Dr. King’s legacy by engaging in the holiday the way it was intended: as a day on, not a day off. Search the National Service database for hundreds of volunteer opportunities in your community. Already have plans? Book your activity now, for another date!

National Service volunteer events run a wide range: education and mentoring, homelessness and hunger, health and wellness, fundraising and marketing, the arts, animals, and so much more. There’s a fit for everyone, and the National Service website even lets you search for indoors vs outdoors and activities for families vs seniors.

And though these events support a variety of marginalized communities, let’s also remind ourselves today specifically of the present-day plight of Black Americans:

  • A flood of voter suppression laws since 2013, strategically aimed at Black voters, passed by the GOP after the conservative Supreme Court struck down key portions of the Voter Rights Act of 1965.
  • Incarcerated at rates significantly higher than whites in every single state. Prison labor serves as a backbone to our country’s industry, a modern-day slavery that produces billions of dollars of annual corporate profit for free or close to it.
  • Black communities continue to live – and die – under an unchecked and bloody police surveillance state.

Dr. King’s fight for equality is not over – but you can continue it. Use a few of your holiday hours to make our country a little more equitable by joining one of the thousands of MLK Day volunteer opportunities in your community.

Search for MLK Day volunteer opportunities near you TODAY – sign up or start your own! Can’t schedule for today? Take a few minutes to book a volunteer opportunity for a later date!

Demand Mitch McConnell allow witnesses at Trump’s impeachment trial

Demand Mitch McConnell allow witnesses at Trump’s impeachment trial

Now that Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi has transmitted the two impeachment articles to the Senate, Republican Leader Mitch McConnell’s (R-KY) goal is clear: limit the procedure in order to frame Trump in the best possible light for a brisk acquittal.

But we have something else in mind: transparency and the truth. This trial MUST include the key witnesses that Trump blocked from testifying before the House. Anything less than hearing the information available would be a gross miscarriage of justice.

Add your name to demand Senators vote to include witnesses and key evidence in Trump’s impeachment trial.

It isn’t just Democrats who see the vital need to include witnesses in this otherwise sham of a trial. Senator Susan Collins (R-ME) says she wants to see the testimony of those Trump and McConnell want to silence and is fighting to make it happen. Republican Senator Mitt Romney also says he’s open to it. We only need four Republicans to join Democrats in voting to subpoena vital witness for Trump’s trial — and we’re halfway there.

Accountability of our highest office in the land is infinitely more important than so-called partisan politics. Our Senators have taken a vow to uphold the Constitution, and this includes conducting a fair and open impeachment trial. That’s why it’s so important that we stop Trump and McConnell silencing those who can illuminate the truth.

Today’s Action: Women’s March TODAY

Today’s the day! Grab your protest sign and head over to the fourth annual Women’s March, happening today across the country. Originally launched the day after Trump’s inauguration, we hope this year’s Women’s March is the last he sees (and petulantly tweets about) from the White House.

This year’s Women’s March focuses on three key topics: reproductive rights, climate change, and immigration justice. Looking beyond the GOP’s appalling attacks on reproductive rights, 80% of those displaced from climate change disasters are women. Similarly, Trump’s immigration atrocities are a feminist issue: women and their children comprise 75% of all immigrants to the U.S. each year. The march encompasses not just women in the United States, but in other countries – acknowledging the direct impact Trump’s policies have on women around the globe.

Women’s Marches planned across the United States and internationally! Search for an event near you and plan to attend this Saturday, January 18th.

Republicans – including the women of the GOP – have made it their mission to systematically remove the rights of women in this country and beyond. From installing anti-choice judges to voting in favor of restrictive and unconstitutional reproductive laws, from backing Trump as he pulled out of the Paris climate deal to clawing for billions funding to install extra detention beds at the border, GOP policy is in direct conflict with the health, rights, and livelihood of women everywhere.

Today is the day for women to #RiseUp and show their unified power alongside supportive allies. And frankly, Republicans must be absolutely terrified of women…otherwise why would they work so hard to contain them?

Enter your zip code to find a Women’s March near you and join thousands of sisters speaking out and standing up for reproductive rights, climate change, and immigration justice.

Today’s Action: Women’s March tomorrow!

The fourth annual Women’s March is tomorrow, originally launched the day after Trump’s inauguration, blowing his attendance numbers out of the water. We are fighting hard for this year’s march to be the final of his presidency…and for future marches to work hand-in-hand with a progressive administration’s policies.

This year’s Women’s March focuses on three key topics: reproductive rights, climate change, and immigration justice. Looking beyond the GOP’s appalling attacks on reproductive rights, 80% of those displaced from climate change disasters are women. Similarly, Trump’s immigration atrocities are a feminist issue: women and their children comprise 75% of all immigrants to the U.S. each year. The march encompasses not just women in the United States, but in other countries – acknowledging the direct impact Trump’s policies have on women around the globe.

Women’s Marches planned across the United States and internationally! Search for an event near you and plan to attend this Saturday, January 18th.

Republicans – including the women of the GOP – have made it their mission to systematically remove the rights of women in this country and beyond. From installing anti-choice judges to voting in favor of restrictive and unconstitutional reproductive laws, from backing Trump as he pulled out of the Paris climate deal to clawing for billions funding to install extra detention beds at the border, GOP policy is in direct conflict with the health, rights, and livelihood of women everywhere.

Tomorrow is the day for women to #RiseUp and show unified power alongside supportive allies. And frankly, Republicans must be absolutely terrified of women…otherwise why would they work so hard to contain them?

Enter your zip code to find a Women’s March near you and join thousands of sisters speaking out and standing up for reproductive rights, climate change, and immigration justice.
