Today’s Action: Write a pro-impeachment letter to your local newspaper

This is the moment we’ve been waiting for. Three years of witnessing Trump’s flagrant abuses of office and violations of the law as president, and finally, the House is holding him accountable.

Soon, Trump’s impeachment trial will begin in the Senate, where Mitch McConnell has vowed to work hand-in-hand with Trump’s every request, rebuking the constitutional notion of a fair process.

But McConnell isn’t the only Republican in the Senate, and some, more moderate than he, may see justice differently, so they need to hear from their voters. And, we need to keep the pressure cooking on Senate Democrats as well, since at least one from a red state has indicated a wavering opinion. We’ve been making our phone calls and sending emails to their offices, and now we’re taking a different approach: public pressure, via publication.

Urge your Senators to support a fair and open trial for Trump’s crimes by writing a letter to your local newspaper. Contrary to popular belief, print media is not dead, and the people who tend to read newspapers are also the ones most likely to vote, and your Senators know it. You won’t just send a message to your elected representatives – you’ll also help motivate other voters in your area to keep up the pressure as well.

For the first time in history, we have an impeached president running for re-election, truly capturing the essence of Trump’s flagrant disrespect for the law. But our lawmakers should respect the law, should thoroughly examine the evidence – all the evidence, not just Trump and McConnell’s catered selection.

A phone call or an email, while effective, is still private communication. Writing a letter to your newspaper has the chance of being read by anyone anywhere from hundreds to millions… and each of those readers has the ability to make phone calls and send emails as well. Now is the time to amplify your voice and extend your power and position as a progressive activist.

Nobody is above the law. And we need to keep saying it, since Mitch McConnell disagrees.

Write a letter to your local newspaper, encouraging your Senators to support a fair and open impeachment trial for Trump, and urging other voters to make the phone calls demanding the same.
