This week, Smitha, Megan & Rebecca discuss the general lawlessness of this administration and what we can do to counter it.

BITCHFEST

THIS DOCTOR MAKES HOUSE CALLS

Action of the week: 

Trump and his admin think they can act with impunity due to the Barr letter.  We need to make it clear this will not stand.  We must work on two fronts – advocacy and election.  We must keep calling and showing up to push our MoCs AND we must work to get the strongest candidates to fight Trump and his GOP this November 

Calls to congress:

Senate: My name is XX from XX zipcode. Congress must check Trump and stand up for our democracy.  I ask the Senator to:

  • Call for investigations of Krisjten Neilsen and Stephen Miller
  • Do all you can to get the full Mueller report released
  • Pass the VAWA and the House Disaster Relief Bill
