NATIONAL DAY OF ACTION on Tuesday January 24th

From the INDIVISIBLE GUIDE newsletter:

On Tuesday, January 24, local groups across America are visiting their senators’ offices and demanding that they reject Trump’s unqualified, corrupt Cabinet nominees. 

Thousands of local activists like you have already committed to opposing this cast of racists, cronies, and kleptocrats by taking this in-person action. Join us, #standindivisible, and send the videos, pictures, and stories from your actions to stories@indivisibleguide.com.

Three Indivisible Actions This Week

1) Keep the Heat on Trump's Divisive Cabinet Nominees: Hearings for many of Trump’s cabinet nominees may have occurred last week, but the fight is far from over. Ethical scandals, financial conflicts, and outstanding questions plague many nominees. We’ve got to keep the heat on the disastrous nominees coming up this week:

Urge your Senators to oppose the confirmation of Jeff Sessions for Attorney General.

Tuesday, January 24th: Confirmation hearings continue for Rep. Tom Price to be Secretary of Health and Human Services. Rep. Price is a radical conservative who wants to destroy the Affordable Care Act, eviscerate anti-poverty efforts, and undermine women’s health, reproductive rights, and LGBTQ rights. There are also unanswered ethical questions about profits Price has made trading health care stocks during his time in Congress where he worked on health care legislation.

Urge your Senators to oppose the confirmation of Rep. Tom Price for HHS Secretary.

DELAYED! Trump's controversial and unqualified nominee to be Secretary of Education, millionaire Betsy DeVos, was supposed to get a vote on Tuesday, the 24th. But in the wake of her poor performance in Congress last week and release of a report on her ethical conflicts, Committee Chairman Grassley has delayed that vote until January 31st.

Let's delay this permanently! Urge your Senators to oppose the confirmation of Betsy DeVos for Education Secretary.

2) Tell Your Representative, "Vote No on HR 7, Yes for Women's Healthcare": You would think, in the wake of Saturday's monumental Women's March that Congress might show some respect for women's rights. You'd be wrong. Instead, on Tuesday, January 24th, the House has scheduled a vote onHR 7. This unnecessary and intrusive legislation meddles with the private insurance marketplace and attacks women's reproductive rights. It’s not the first time Republicans have tried to pass this anti-woman bill.

Call your Member of Congress and tell them to vote No on HR 7.

3) Keep the Pressure On: Tell Congress to #ProtectOurCare. One of President Trump’s first acts in office was to sign an Executive Order that could threaten essential components of the Affordable Care Act. But to dismantle the ACA, Trump will need to get repeal legislation through Congress. Keep the pressure on your members of Congress! Tell your Representative and two Senators that you won’t stand by and let 30+ million people lose their healthcare -- and that you expect that they won’t either.

Americans are ready to fight back, and we know that when we stand indivisible, we will win.

In solidarity,
