FIGHT RACISM: DEMAND CONGRESSIONAL HEARINGS ON WHITE SUPREMACY
————————————————————————————
#StopWhiteSupremacy
#StandUpToHate
Trump made one deal with Democrats, and the press forgot his racist agenda (http://nyti.ms/2xk91fJ). We didn’t forget. 
Trump’s white supremacist ideology:
• has emboldened white supremacists
• increased the number of hate groups http://bit.ly/2wZzChz and the likelihood of lethal violence http://atfp.co/2xiYcdD
• feeds his obsession with destroying everything Obama created http://theatln.tc/2h1zx7n
Trump’s actions made Charlottesville’s domestic terrorism inevitable. Congress passed a joint resolution condemning Charlottesville (http://wapo.st/2w8J17q) but has yet to hold hearings on white supremacists http://politi.co/2fgdoi7
Congressional Democrats are stepping up and demanding
• committee hearings to examine white supremacy
• investigations into white supremacy and rise in domestic terror by hate groups through a select House committee
• funds for anti-terrorist programs and affected communities

Democrats and the Congressional Black Caucus are also calling for the removal of Confederate monuments with the Confederate Monument Removal Act (http://wapo.st/2h2N9f4) and No Federal Funding for Confederate Symbols Act (http://bit.ly/2wkHtGG). 
Oregon’s Members of Congress have been outspoken against Trump’s white supremacy agenda. Now they must act. They must hold hearings/investigations, fund anti-terror programs and remove Confederate monuments.
We must face this hate head on and make it clear it has no place in America.
