Both Sessions and DeVos are likely to have committee votes on Tuesday, 1/31. Keep the pressure on!
5 Minute Action for TODAY:
Step 1: Live in Arizona or have a friend or family member there? (If not, go to Step 2). Make sure you/they have called or written Senator Jeff Flake to encourage him to vote against Sessions’s confirmation. Flake was a potential swing vote, but then announced he would support Sessions. With this week’s executive orders against immigrants and the escalating fight with Mexico, now is the time to pressure him to reconsider!
We understand his phone lines are jammed, and his staff recommends email or Facebook to reach him.
Cut and paste this into an email to your friend/family member, or send the suggested message to Flake directly:
Hi (name), I’ve been reading about protests of Ariz Sen. Flake and his intention to vote “Yes” for Sessions. Imagined you joined in. If not yet, I received this 5 Minute Action tip and wanted to pass it along so you can make your voice heard before the the committee vote on 1/31. I hear his phone system is bogged down, so email or Facebook is probably best.
Suggested message to Flake: “I’m from (city) and am contacting Senator Flake to tell him that Jeff Sessions’s record on civil rights is an affront to the fundamental principles of our country. I call on the Senator to vote ‘NO’ on this disgraceful nomination for AG. We in Arizona are better than this!”
Hope all Arizonians keep the pressure on him!

- You can also send this message to Flake via his Facebook page. You can either just post your comment or search for a Sessions-related post and reply to that.
Step 2: Sign this growing petition against DeVos (click here: https://act.credoaction.com/sign/block_devos/). They need about 50,000 more votes to reach their goal of 1.5 million. You can expect to receive mailings from Credo, but can unsubscribe if you don’t want them.
