MORNING COFFEE ACTIONS (Actions you can do while enjoying your morning cup!)
Defeat the Trump Tax Scam There's still time to oppose the GOP tax plans! Please check our homepage for actions to take.
Signup for the Mueller Rapid Response Since the news broke last week that former National Security Advisor Flynn is cooperating with special counsel Robert Mueller, there have been new rumblings that Trump might fire Mueller. #MarchForTruth is partnering with MoveOn.org, Public Citizen, Indivisible, and many others to prepare emergency "Nobody is Above the Law" rallies that will happen directly following the firing should it occur. Our Democracy team encourages everyone to signup for this response to show that you are willing to take to the streets if such a constitutional crisis occurs. Go to #MarchForTruth for more information and to sign up.
Tell Governor Baker That He Can't Have It Both Ways We applaud Governor Baker for sticking up for CHIP - it is a moral imperative to provide health insurance for children. But supporting fundraising for Roy Moore is not sticking up for children and it is certainly not consistent with our morals. Granted, Governor Baker has come out against Roy Moore BUT raising money that goes to the RNC, which goes to Roy Moore, is wrong. Please call Governor Baker and tell him to end this agreement with the RNC as other Republicans have done.
Save Net Neutrality This Thursday Dec. 14th, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) will be voting on a plan to rescind the net neutrality rules that currently prevent internet service providers from blocking or favoring certain websites or content. Send an email to the three FCC commissioners who are expected to vote to end Net Neutrality. This document prepared by our Democracy team provides their email addresses and a sample script you can use as well as information on other actions you can take. Visit this website for information on how to join the online protest on the Dec. 12th Day of Action. Our MoCs oppose this change - please call to thank them and add your voice to theirs.
