12/13/16  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! 

  1. On this fourth anniversary of the Sandy Hook tragedy, please consider becoming part of the Sandy Hook Promise. Take the pledge, donate, and/or work for reasonable gun control that could help save lives.  http://www.sandyhookpromise.org/

  1. CALL YOUR MEMBERS OF CONGRESS TO URGE THEM TO SPEAK OUT FOR AN IMMEDIATE INDEPENDENT/BIPARTISAN INVESTIGATION Talking Points:  1)  I am calling because I believe the American people deserve information about the Russian intervention into our election. 2)  Dozens of leaders on both sides of the aisle have clearly identified this as a bipartisan issue that is a threat against all of us, regardless of party. 3)  I ask you to work to create an independent, bipartisan investigation to reflect the seriousness of this threat and the need for a process that is seen as rigorous and credible to all Americans. If it is not an independent commission, the process will be seen as partisan and will only further divide our nation instead of bring it together to safeguard our democracy.  Find your Senator/Representative phone numbers here:  https://www.usa.gov/elected-officials
