  1. Senator Joe Manchin (D-VA) has consistently voted against Democratic values, yet he continues to hold a leadership position in the Democratic Caucus. Call Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer and ask that he remove Manchin from the Democratic leadership team: (202) 224-6542

  1. Join Former Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords and her organization, Americans for Responsible Solutions, in calling on your legislators to embrace open debate, listen to their constituents and hold town halls. “Town halls and countless constituent meetings were a hallmark of my tenure in Congress. It’s how I was able to serve the people of southern Arizona. I believed that listening to my constituents was the most basic and core tenet of the job I was hired to do.”  http://americansforresponsiblesolutions.org/2017/02/23/townhall/ 

  1. How about if we all print this off and mail it to Betsy DeVos?  It is good advice that she could use:  http://www.eclectablog.com/2017/02/betsy-betsy-betsy.html  Her address is:  U.S. Department of Education, 400 Maryland Avenue, SW, Washington, D.C. 20202

  1. Join in the Sierra Club’s request:  Trump & the GOP claim the crowds showing up to town halls & protests aren't regular people! Show them you are! Tweet a pic or video with #YouRepresentMe & say who you are! 

  1. Fearful the new administration will abuse its power, President Obama’s lawyers are uniting to fight back. http://www.politico.com/story/2017/02/obama-trump-lawyers-worst-case-235280  Sign up to stay informed of their work:  https://unitedtoprotectdemocracy.org/ 

Petitions to Sign


  1. To Sen. Schumer:  “Sen. Joe Manchin consistently votes against the core principles and values of the Democratic party’s progressive base.

It is time for you to remove him from your leadership team.” petition: https://act.credoaction.com/sign/Manchin_Schumer?t=2&akid=21832.11114362.NXeGdk

  1. Stand with Believe Out Loud, an online community that empowers Christians to work for justice for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) people, and tell Trump that Christians Stand with Trans Students: https://actionsprout.io/590BC3/initial

Learning


  1. “GOP Considers Trimming Health Law’s 10 Essential Benefits”:  http://www.npr.org/sections/health-shots/2017/02/22/516465156/gop-seeks-reduction-in-health-law-s-10-essential-benefits

As Chris Tackett of Natural Resources Defense Council said, “This Bannon speech at CPAC needs to be heard and understood. This is ominous, radical, and un-American.”   https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/the-fix/wp/2017/02/23/stephen-bannons-nationalist-call-to-arms-annotated/?utm_term=.9cdae824c469
