Ep. 73 - Take The Gloves Off

This week, Rebecca asks Democrats to get tougher, Smitha asks you to use your privilege, and Megan asks you to use your skills.



Action of the week: 

Trump’s anti-immigrant rhetoric is ratcheting up and there are many who are scared.  Please take action to help stop this anti-immigrant administration.

For those who are overwhelmed 

For those who need hope

Calls to congress:

My name is XX from XX zipcode: Congress must act to stop the inhumane policies at the border.  I ask the Senator/Rep to

  • Call for Stephen Miller’s investigation.
  • Support a House committee subpoena of Miller
  • Pass the Reunite Act and the Families Not Facilities Act.
