Action 1: GET OUT THE VOTE:

They say to put on your own oxygen mask before helping others. Please fill out and return your own ballots! Then help remind others by joining our local #chalkthevote campaign: grab a piece of chalk and write “Vote,” “Vote today,” or “Vote by November 7” on the nearest sidewalk. Then post a picture to social media with the hashtag #chalkthevote!

Action 2: Oppose and Investigate 'Toxic' New EPA Nominee

Michael Dourson, Trump's nominee to lead the Environmental Protection Agency's chemical safety program, spent "decades producing industry-funded research that critics say downplays the health risks of chemical substances," according to NBC. Another case of Trump putting our health and safety at risk by nominating a fox to guard the henhouse. Furthermore, he appears to be violating the law by working at the agency before he has even been confirmed!

Ask your Senators to oppose Dourson's nomination and call for an investigation.

Sen. Patty Murray: DC 202-224-2621; Seattle 206-553-5545
Sen. Maria Cantwell: DC 202-224-3441; Seattle 206-220-6400

SCRIPT: “Hi, my name is [NAME], from [CITY]. Please oppose the nomination of chemical industry lackey Michael Dourson to the EPA's chemical safety program, and call for an investigation into whether he violated the law by working for the EPA before he has been confirmed.”

GOOD NEWS: Sen. Jeff Flake is the latest in a series of GOP retirements that open up more seats for Democrats to pick up next year! There are many reasons for this, but it's thanks in no small part to hard-working Indivisible groups in Arizona! https://www.nytimes.com/2017/10/24/us/politics/jeff-flake-arizona.html
