Today’s Action: Take Advantage of August Recess!

The House is on recess through the end of August — those up for reelection this November are at home campaigning hard in swing districts, while Trump is holding Hail Mary in-person events for struggling red districts getting swept up in the #BlueWave.

Which means it’s the perfect time to get face time with your Representative. Republicans need to be held personally accountable for the messes they have caused the past two years instead of hiding behind office assistants answering phones. And Democrats need encouragement (and a few of them need a little push) to continue fighting hard for progressive causes.

Check to see if your Representative is planning a Town Hall. If they aren’t, request an in-person office visit (here are some tips for scheduling and attending your meeting). Then, speak your mind on one of the topics below!

  • Asylum for Victims of Domestic Violence: Pass legislation to protect immigrant women threatened in their own countries, without governmental protections.
  • End Family Jails: Demand legislation to overturn Trump’s “zero tolerance” policy, which has jailed and separated thousands of immigrant families.
  • Keep Planned Parenthood Funded: Pass legislation to secure Title X (family planning) funding for organizations like Planned Parenthood which also provide abortion services/referrals.
  • Overturn the Muslim Travel Ban: Pass legislation to overturn Trump’s ‘Travel’ Ban, which blocks travel for millions of Muslims hailing from Muslim-majority countries.
  • Preserve SNAP: Vote down any Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (aka SNAP, aka food stamps) renewal that expands work requirements.
  • Stand up for immigrants: Demand a strong statement against Trump’s plan to deny citizenship, greencards, and visas to 20 million legal immigrants whose family members have used social services like SNAP, CHIP, the earned income tax credit and more.

It’s officially election season, and your Members of Congress are keenly aware that they need your vote to keep their jobs. Show up this week to make perfectly clear what they’ll have to do to get it!

PS — Please don’t forget to sign the petition to stop Trump and Congress from hurting American families with another tax cut for the rich, 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.
