  1. Call the Comptroller General of the Government Accountability in support of Senator Warren's request to audit the President Elect's finances for conflicts of interest. Also, email two administrators. Their names are:
    Katherine Siggerud -email: siggerudk@gao.gov
    And Timothy Minnelli -email: minellit@gao.gov
    Here is the text of the suggested message:
    "I'm writing in support of Senator Elizabeth Warren's request for an audit of our incoming President Elect's finances, to prohibit conflicts of interest that would prevent him from carrying out the responsibilities of the office without corrupt influence."

  1. A petition to stop Congress from gutting or privatizing Medicare:  https://act.credoaction.com/sign/medicare_killers?sp_ref=248781684.4.177230.f.561992.2&referring_akid=.5011513.TTTVmD&source=fb_share_sp

  1. Call your Reps in Washington tomorrow!  This, from Sen. Elizabeth Warren:  "Republicans aren’t waiting for President Donald Trump to roll back the rules on Wall Street. On Thursday, the House will vote on H.R. 6392, a bill that does nothing for community banks but eliminates many of the Dodd-Frank financial reform rules for 30 of the biggest banks in the country. Banks this big – like Washington Mutual and Countrywide – were at the heart of bringing down our economy during the 2008 financial crisis. So what could possibly go wrong?!   A vote for H.R. 6392 is a vote to gut the rules designed to stop another financial crisis and to let Donald Trump’s Treasury Secretary decide how to regulate the big banks. House Republicans may be willing to gamble the safety of our financial system to please the giant banks, but Democrats should side with working families that want tougher rules for Wall Street and can’t afford another backbreaking crisis or taxpayer-funded bailout."
