FIGHT: No New Justice Til ’21. Pass HEROES Act.
"My most fervent wish is that I will not be replaced until a new president is installed.”
—RBG on her deathbed
We have our marching orders. Ruth Bader Ginsberg would want us to fight for precedent, fairness, and the rule of law. At the same time, continue to demand that our Congress take care of all of us, and pass the HEROES Act. Either before the continuing resolution or as part of it.
Make your calls now and every day this week. Then write letters and postcards to voters with Indivisible Oregon. Make phone calls with us. Donate money for races in swing states here or here and for the presidency here. To quote Sen. Merkley: “Ditch Mitch, dump Trump, save America.”
