Today’s Action: Attend a Whose House? Our House! event TODAY

The moment we’ve all been waiting for! It’s the first day on the job for new members of Congress, including our Democratic-majority House of Representatives. All of your hard work pushing along the Blue Wave in 2018 has paid off, and now it’s time to reap the benefits and go on the offensive at the federal level.

The first 100 days in session are vitally important for majority leaders to set their agenda. So in order to fight Trump as effectively and efficiently as possible, for the next three months Democrats will need our encouragement and support like never before.

To launch this, the good folks of Indivisible are hosting Whose House? Our House! National Day of Action events across the country today. These events are for all progressive voters, whether you’re showing up to support and guide your Democratic Rep, or to inform your GOP Rep that they’ve got two more years of facing your wrath.

As a reminder, we are still in the middle of Trump’s government shutdown. 800,000 government workers are still without pay, and funding for the Violence Against Women Act has expired. Meanwhile, Trump’s tactics of terror at the border have left a second migrant child dead and thousands more imprisoned, and the president is holding out for an additional $5 billion to fuel his racist cause further.

As the most recent House departed, they passed a funding bill to give Trump his repugnant border wall, knowing the wall would not clear the Senate (such a waste of time). Our new House must prioritize passing a plan for the government that includes permanent funding for the Violence Against Women Act, and not one additional cent for the gruesome tactics at the border.

Not. One. Cent. Say it in person if you can — and call if you can’t.

Search the Whose House? Our House! National Day of Action event module for the rally nearest yout! No event close by? Participate by calling (202.224.3121) or emailing your Representative, urging them to swiftly pass a funding bill that includes permanent support for the Violence Against Women Act — but not a single additional cent for Trump’s border policies.

PS — Please don’t forget to sign the petition to urge Speaker Pelosi & Sen. Schumer to hold firm and not fund Trump’s stupid border wall, 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.
