Call to Action: July 3, 2018


SAVE OUR LIFE, LIBERTY, AND PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS


Our unalienable rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness are under attack from Trump and his GOPwhich includes Greg Walden.

Our lives are under attack as our safety net is being ripped away.  The House Farm Bill cuts nutritional assistance for millions, including hundreds of thousands of children. The House Budget Committee passed a budget that slashes Medicaid, Medicare, and Social Security.

Our liberty is under attack from Trump’s judicial nominees. Mitch McConnell is pushing through unqualified judges that attack women’s rights, LGBTQ rights, and worker rights. The next SCOTUS nominee will be the same and change this country for a generation.

Our pursuit of happiness is under attack as families are torn apart at the border and kept in detention indefinitely.

We ask our MoCs to:

  • Save our lives by protecting our safety net: a fair farm bill and just healthcare for all
  • Save our liberty by refusing to vote on any SCOTUS nominee until January 2019 and while Trump is under investigation
  • Save our pursuit of happiness by working to immediately reunite all families separated at the border and end family detention

Stand Indivisible!

With Liberty and Justice for ALL!

**ACTION THREE: REMEMBER FOR THE MIDTERMS**

It has become clear that we need a different Congress to protect our safety net, courts, and families.

  • Make sure you and everyone you know is registered to vote.  
  • Make sure every candidate for Congress is answering questions about how they will work to protect our safety nets, courts, and families.

  • Learn more about Jamie McLeod-Skinner by visiting her website. Consider volunteering to assist her campaign! https://jamiefororegon.com/

The 2018 elections will be the most important of our lives.
