Victoria Kaplan writes that she is “hosting a mass call with Representative Pramila Jayapal, one of the key architects of Saturday’s rallies and marches, MoveOn national spokesperson Karine Jean-Pierre, and young MoveOn member Marwa E. to unveil MoveOn’s 2018 Resist & Win grassroots volunteer election organizing program, and I hope you’ll join us. “

Tuesday (July 3)

1 action: 2 calls


Call Schumer (at 202-224-6542 or 315-423-5471) and Gillibrand ((315) 448-0470) to oppose the confirmation of any Trump nominee for Supreme Court to replace Justice Kennedy.

All potential nominees were selected by the Federalist Society and all are extremists.  Confirmation will put access to women’s health care and other rights at risk.  Click here for further information on The Two-Step Strategy to Win the Supreme Court Fight and for scripts for phone calls to Schumer and Gillibrand [All Other Democrats].


Wednesday (July 4)

Happy Independence Day!


Thursday (July 5)

1 call today

Call John Katko and Demand that he urge Trump to Reunite Immigrant Families and Reject Zero Tolerance Immigration Policy.  Katko’s numbers are 315-423-5657 (Syracuse), 315-253-4068 (Auburn), or 202-225-3701 (DC).

Since last week’s defeat of the disastrous Ryan Bill on Immigration, which John Katko helped put together, we now need to focus on demanding the reuniting of Immigrant families and rejection of Zero Tolerance Immigration Policy.  Following up on the energy and passion expressed at the Families Belong Together rallies held throughout the country on Saturday, remind our congressman that separating families is not an American Value, it is not who we are.
