Actions of the week: 

We all need to say the word impeachment.  We all need demand our MoCs say the word impeachment.  We all need to demand our MoCs call for an impeachment inquiry.  Trump committed impeachable offenses and he must be held accountable.  If we don’t do it now, we legitimize what he has done and will lose our chance to stand up for what is right. And if our MoCs don’t hear about impeachment from the grassroots they may never act on it. 

Calls to congress:

Impeachment ask: My name is XX from XX zipcode: Trump committed impeachable offenses. He must be held accountable.  I ask that Rep/Senator to say that Trump committed impeachable offenses and call on the House to hold an impeachment inquiry

Combo ask: My name is XX from XX zipcode: The Mueller report shows that Trump committed impeachable offenses and our elections were hacked.  Trump must be held accountable and our elections must be securled.  I ask that Rep/Senator to 

  1. say that Trump committed impeachable offenses 
  2. call on the House to hold an impeachment inquiry
  3. demand the Senate pass HR1 to protect our elections 

Election Action

The best antidote is to all this unrest is to take action.  After calling your member of Congress check out the resources below.
