Final Update: Resources and Thank youApril 14, 2017Since you joined our Thunderclap to Demand Trump's Tax Returns, we know you understand the reasons why that's important. But the people who see your message across their news-feed may not understand why it's important, or may not know how to reach their representatives.
Here are a few resources to help you in those situations:
- Share this video by Elizabeth Warren: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VCgkqwXHXYk&feature=youtu.be
- Ask your Fox News-watching uncle: When national security and economic stability hang in the balance, why should the President of the United States keep his business deals secret?
- Provide these links to help people locate their Senators: https://www.senate.gov/senators/contact/ and their House Representative: http://www.house.gov/representatives/
- Where to find your nearest Tax March: http://taxmarch.org/local-marches/
Thank you for supporting this Thunderclap, have a great time at your Tax March, and please remember to call your representatives on Monday to ask them to support the Presidential Tax Transparency Act. #resist
Get ready to rock your Town Halls with Indivisible's 'Reclaim Recess' ToolkitApril 11, 2017
Congressional recess is happening April 8-23. Congressional recess is a special time. It’s when Members of Congress (MoCs) come back to their home districts for extended periods of time to meet with their constituents and hold public events. These recess periods are when your MoCs prefer to hold town halls, ribbon cuttings, and otherwise garner good local press for themselves.
The upcoming recess is a great opportunity for your group to remind your MoCs that they need to stand up for you—and that means standing up and speaking out against the Trump agenda.
Here are the 5 issues that Indivisible will be prioritizing. The issues below are ones that will be coming up for Congress shortly — but as always, you should also push your MoCs on the issues that matter most to you.
Ongoing Congressional Issues:
- Demand Trump’s Tax Returns!!!
- Investigate Russian Interference in 2016 Election
- The Federal Budget
No Cuts to Essential Programs
No Funding for Trump’s Deportation Force
Direct Feedback on Votes and Positions:
- How did your MoC plan to vote on TrumpCare?
- Did your Senators oppose “going nuclear” over Neil Gorsuch?
Follow this link to learn tips and strategies on how to maximize this opportunity to influence your MoCs. Keep it up. This is working. We can win.
