ACTION NOW
 
Indivisible's Priorities This Week

Trump and the GOP continue to defend the indefensible. They are counting on us to get too worn out to stay active and raise hell about these and other outrages: 
  • Protecting Trump, his cronies, donors, and family from an independent commission regarding Russian interference in our election
  • Inflicting Trumpcare on Americans 
  • Gutting the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau
  • Protecting Wall Street banksters
  • Gutting rules that protect air, water, and environment
  • Destabilizing relations with other countries, including not staffing the US State Department
  • Profiting from relationships with lobbyists and donors; here's an example.
What do you care about? Call your Members of Congress now!

PEOPLE POWER 
 
"The people . . . do not give their public servants the right to decide what is good for the people to know and what is not good for them to know.’”   -- The Washington State Supreme Court

An independent commission investigating the Trump-Russia connection could be required to open its findings to the public. The current FBI and Congressional investigations are not required to do that. Contact your Members of Congress to demand an independent commission.

SANDCASTLE DAY • Saturday, June 17
