12/18/16  To-do List                                              

There is no special way to attack this action list. If it seems overwhelming, just do the first two items to make it easier.  If you have a little more time, do the third….and the fourth…. Or, choose items that speak to your heart.  Some people cut and paste the list, print it off and take it with them so they can check items off while they are out and about during the day and just waiting or driving.  Others click and do items as they work on their computer or phone.  There is no right way to do this.  Just do something!  Remember, too, that many of the suggestions made on earlier days are still doable!

If you live in NC, make your voice heard and let House Speaker Tim Moore (919)-733-3451) and Senate President Pro-Tem Phil Berger (919) 733-5708 know that you are against their shameful and unprecedented political power grabs to take power away from Governor-elect Roy Cooper.  You can also sign this petition:  http://action.ncdp.org/page/s/stop-ncgop-powergrab
