CNY Solidarity members and supporters:
Please find below the weekly ACTION ALERTS from Indivisible NY24 and our legislative action teams. We remain focused on impeachment as a top priority. The evening before the House floor vote on articles of impeachment (likely sometime in mid-December), there will be nationwide rallies to declare #TrumpIsNotAboveTheLaw. Ours will be outside the Hanley Federal Building in Syracuse. Click here to sign up for more details. (There will also be one in Auburn, organized by our friends at Indivisible Cayuga.)After you sign up for the rally, check out our phone call and letter writing actions directed at Katko as well. Details below. We understand that this repeats last week’s request, but we are at a critical juncture and we need to keep the pressure on.
Today (Dec. 2) Katko is Not Doing His Duty
Today, please call Rep. Katko again and ask his staff to convey your view that Trump has abused the powers of his office and that it is Congress’s constitutional responsibility to check these abuses. As always, Katko’s numbers are 315-423-5657 (Syracuse), 315-253-4068 (Auburn), or 202-225-3701 (DC).
Tuesday (Dec. 3) Republican Senators Are Not Doing Their Duty
Indivisible is encouraging impeachment phone calls to voters in states with persuadable Republican senators. You talk to the voter about impeachment, then if they’re willing, you push a button to patch them through to their Senator. Click here to sign up for a shift this afternoon. (Shifts also available for next week.)
Weekly #CloseTheCamps Vigil 12-12:15pm at 440 S. Warren St. 13202. More details here.
Wednesday (Dec. 4) No action alerts for today.
Thursday (Dec. 5)
Katko Still Isn’t Doing His Duty
Odds are low that Katko will support articles of impeachment against President Trump, but he keeps saying that he’s made no final decision, so let’s keep trying to persuade him. We’ve seen a number of letters to the editor appear in print, and we need to keep them coming. In a brief letter, lay out why you believe Trump has abused his powers, and how you feel about Katko’s refusal to do anything about it. Click herefor some suggested outlets, follow-up call or email after a few days to encourage them to print it. If you already wrote a letter for one outlet, you can write another for a different local paper.
