Needed some humor today.
No, we’re not moving to Canada (though Hawaii sounds nice and far from Washington D.C.). We all need to dig in and keep finding our power.
Here is really great way to expand YOUR power. Get to know your state’s Attorney General (AG).
The Democrat AGs of the following 16 states have taken legal action and stood firm against Trump’s original Muslim Ban: California, Connecticut, Delaware, the District of Columbia, Hawaii Illinois, Iowa, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, Washington and Virginia. We all must persuade and pressure more of our AGs to stand up to Trump.
TODAY’S 5 Minute Action, thanks to wall-of-us:
Step 1: Find out your state AG (click – here). Click on their photo and take 2 minutes, study up on them and write down their phone number and find their general contact email, too (this can be a little tricky in some cases). Are they Democrats or Republicans? When are they up for re-election? Check out their sites and social media pages to see where they stand on issues.
Step 2: Take 2 minutes and let them know how you feel about their position on the original Muslim Ban:
- If your AG is from the states above, post on social media, call or email and thank them for their leadership. Again, here is the link to find them: here
- Script: “Thank you for opposing Trump’s original Muslim Ban. We commend the leadership that our state is taking to protect our refugees and our democratic values. Please continue to step up!”
- If they are not from the 16 states above, call their office. Again, here is the link to find them: here
- Script: “We are disappointed that AG [____________] did not support the Amicus Brief signed by the attorneys general of 16 states in opposition to Trump’s Muslim Ban. The State of [__________] should oppose the unconstitutional acts of the Trump Administration and stand with our refugees.”
BREATHE AND STEP FORWARD!
