INDIVISIBLE OREGON'S TUESDAY CALL OF THE WEEK
Tell your Members of Congress:
Most of our congressional delegation went to the border this week. We thank them for bearing witness.  Now we need them to take the next step. The conditions in these camps are impeachable offenses. They must call for an immediate impeachment inquiry -  loudly and publicly. 
 
Senator Merkley's DC office: 202-224-3753. Senator Wyden's DC office: 202-224-5244.

DEMOCRATS DEBATE 
Tuesday, July 30 and Wednesday, July 31
6 pm, Pacific Daylight Time on CNN
Check out the news about the 20 candidates in these debates, including brief profiles. The Democratic National Committee (DNC) doubled the polling and grass-roots fundraising requirements from its initial summer debates.

The Democratic National Committee uses grassroots fundraising as one of two ways to earn a spot in the first two primary debates — candidates had to get contributions from at least 65,000 unique donors and a minimum of 200 unique donors per state in at least 20 states. The DNC said it required candidates to provide private but verifiable documentation of their donors. If you'd like to support your favorite, visit the candidates' websites, listed on INCO's Vote the Future site

ACTION PRIORITIES
  How will your Members of Congress know what you want if you don't tell them?

•  Contact ONLY elected officials who represent you so you don't dilute the power of actual constituents.
•  It's more effective to contact your MoC about one issue at a time. 
•  Be sure to tell your MoC when you agree with their positions and votes.

 
Contact YOUR elected officials here.  For current action items, visit www.incoregon.org and www.indivisible.org.
