Call to Action: September 21, 2018

DAYS UNTIL MID-TERM BALLOTS WILL BE MAILED: 26

DAYS UNTIL MID-TERM BALLOTS ARE DUE: 46


WE CAN BEGIN TO CONTROL MAN-MADE DISASTERS


Trump denies climate change.  The intensity and frequency of hurricanes, floods and wildfires are directly related to climate change.  This increase in the destructive power of storms and fires has created ever more devastating man-made climate-related disasters. Insufficient, often callous government responses to disasters have added to the hardship of people caught in their path, particularly if they are people of color.

Trump denied the terrible death toll of Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico and flippantly tossed a few paper towels to the survivors.  He diverted $9.8 million in disaster relief funds from FEMA to ICE to fund more for-profit internment camps for Central American families and children.

Trump’s racist immigration policy is causing a man-made disaster and he is defunding FEMA to support it.

Trump enacts policies through executive orders and memos.  Since the Republican majority Congress – and demonstrably Greg Walden – has no desire to provide oversight, vital issues will be decided through court challenges.  

Never Forget!

Greg Walden Supports Everything Trump is Doing!

Silence = Complicity!

Brett Kavanaugh is a staunch Trump ally whose decisions have shown a consistent anti-environment and anti-immigrant bias.

Allowing him on the Supreme Court will create another devastating man-made disaster.

We can fight these disasters! 

Stop Kavanaugh.

Flip Congress!


**ACTION ONE: CALL OUR SENATORS**

SAMPLE SCRIPT FOR SENATORS MERKLEY AND WYDEN:
(Leave a message if you can’t get through)

“My name is [–] and I’m a constituent and voter [city], Oregon [zip code]. I am calling to ask Senator [*]  to demand hearings on the diversion of FEMA funds to create more internment camps while Puerto Rico suffered from the aftermath of Hurricane Maria.  I also want to thank the Senator for his continued opposition to the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh. If Kavanaugh is confirmed, business interests will triumph over environmental protections and immigrant children and families will continue to be interned and traumatized at our borders.  Kavanaugh’s nomination MUST BE DEFEATED! Thank you.”
