Action 1: Have You Voted Yet? Has Everyone in Your Neighborhood Voted Yet??
Remember to fill out and return your ballot by November 7! 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: Share Your Stories Using a New Tool!
The Senate recently passed a resolution recommending massive budget cuts to Medicaid, Medicare, SNAP/food stamps, earned income tax credits (EITC), supplemental security income (SSI), among other things such as the EPA, medical research and the State Department. This resolution is not law, but it shows us what Republicans want to do and in fact what they must do if they want to pass Trump’s tax scam.
Your personal stories were a crucial tool to stop Trumpcare, and now we need to use the same tactics to stop these Senate-recommended budget cuts from turning into reality. If you or a loved one have benefited from any of the programs listed above, please take the time to email your representatives about it! It will give fuel to their fight and help them persuade wavering republicans.
You can email all three of your national representatives at once by going to http://www.democracy.io – simply enter your zip code and the site will allow you to send a message with one click!
