Calls to Action - Week of January 22, 2018
Indivisible Charleston is partnering with an organization called Herd on the Hill. They will be making a visit to the DC offices of Senators Graham and Scott every week. Herd on the Hill will hand deliver to them your messages. To get a message to DC for hand-delivery (and discussion with staffers), go to StampsLicked.org and type your message so Herd on the Hill can deliver them to your MoC. Demand a clean DREAM Act, demand they reinstate CHIP, and demand they protect Mueller and the Russia investigation! Tweet, Facebook, Call, or use ResistBot, too. Text RESIST to 50409 and turn your text into a fax for your MoC and the now the President, too!
12 - 1 PM
Resist Trump Tuesday: 1-Year Performance Review! Come on out this Tues, Jan 23 and be a part of the 1-Year Performance Review for "that guy.” It'd be great if we could get him out to Marion Square, but none of us are Russian oligarchs or porn stars, so it looks like we'll have to settle for an imaginary president. Fitting. Meet at Marion Square at the Corner of King & Calhoun. The nearest garages are at Francis Marion (399 King) or 81 St Philip St -- each are $2/hr. Please see the Facebook event page for more information.
Continue to demand that Congress pass the DREAM Act. Now. Every day that goes by is a day in which the lives of immigrant youth remain at risk. There are 7,060 DACA recipients in South Carolina alone, and each year they contribute $11,768,000 in State and local taxes. It’s up to your members in Congress to stand up to Trump’s hateful decision and secure the futures of all DREAMers with a legislative fix: The DREAM Act. Tell your MoCs to get on this! Tweet, Facebook, Call, or use ResistBot. Text RESIST to 50409 and turn your text into a fax for your MoC!
The Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) ensures nearly 9 million children have health insurance. CHIP is a federal-state partnership where the federal government provides most—or in some cases, all—of the funding necessary to cover uninsured children. Congress let CHIP authorization expire on September 30 and the GOP still has not found the time to reauthorize CHIP passed temporary measures. Call your MoC and demand that they reauthorize CHIP.
Trump is clearly becoming more unhinged as Mueller gets closer to the truth. Rest assured that Trump does NOT have the authority to fire Mueller. However, in the unlikely event that Mueller is fired, Indivisible Charleston has a plan and we will send an out an alert message with instructions of where and when to assemble. To subscribe to our alert system, please text "Follow INDCHSALERTS" to 40404. In the meantime, put pressure on your MoCs to protect Mueller and the investigation.
