3. Fight the new TrumpCare, and stop the dismantling of ObamaCare. Here's an encouraging article, including a step-by-step guide for volunteers like us to Get America Covered by the ACA. Read how here.
Pass a bipartisan health care stabilization bill that will protect consumers. On Thursday, Trump took two executive actions in his attempt to sabotage the Affordable Care Act and do some of what Senate Republicans were unable to do (twice). First, he issued an executive order designed to siphon healthy people out of the regular insurance markets; then, he ordered that the administration stop making payments to insurers that they depend on to provide financial assistance to low-income consumers. Both actions will result in higher premiums and more uninsured Americans...and will cost taxpayers more than just making sure people can get coverage. Read more here.
4. Pass a clean #DreamActNow. DREAMers aren’t bargaining chips for increased detention and deportations, a border wall, and putting a target on undocumented parents. Read more here.
5. Tell the administration: #NoMuslimBanEver. Trump’s third attempt at a refugee ban (adding Chad, North Korea, and Venezuela and removing Sudan) takes effect on October 18. On 10/18, Indivisible.org is joining dozens of organizations including Asian Americans Advancing Justice, Asian Law Caucus, Council of American-Islamic Relations (CAIR)’s San Francisco-Bay chapter, MPower Change, and MASA Organizing to fight against Trump’s white supremacist agenda and declare: No Muslim Ban Ever.

“The point is that the relative freedom which we enjoy depends on public opinion. The law is no protection. Governments make laws, but whether they are carried out, and how the police behave, depends on the general temper in the country. If large numbers of people are interested in freedom of speech, there will be freedom of speech, even if the law forbids it; if public opinion is sluggish, inconvenient minorities will be persecuted, even if laws exist to protect them.” -- George Orwell, "Freedom of the Park"
