Today’s Action: Take Advantage of August Recess!

Both houses of Congress are on recess this week. The House has broken up for a month…but what normally is a longer recess for the Senate has been shortened to just one week…

Why? Because Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) is scheming as usual: stifling re-election campaign efforts back at home for his Democratic colleagues; and planning to jam through a wave of vile Trump judicial nominees before midterms.

That means, for Senators, we have just one week to hit up town halls and make office visits. (For the House, we’ve got until end of August.)

Check to see if your representatives are planning a Town Hall.

If they aren’t, request an in-person office visit (here are some tips for scheduling and attending your meeting).

Or, call them and ask why they’re afraid to face their constituents, and 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.
  • Preserve SNAP: Tell the House to vote down any Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (aka SNAP, aka food stamps) renewal that expands work requirements.
  • Protect Muslim Immigrants: Pass legislation to overturn Trump’s ‘Travel’ Ban, which blocks travel for millions of Muslims hailing from Muslim-majority countries.
  • #SaveSCOTUS: Tell your Senators to vote no on Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh

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!
