- Protect the Supreme Court: Tell Your Senators NO CLOTURE on Gorsuch
The important vote this week for Gorsuch is the "cloture" vote. Voting for "cloture" means voting to cut off debate and end a filibuster. This vote requires 60 votes to succeed, which means Senate Republicans CAN'T win this on their own—they don’t have enough votes. Ask your Senator (regardless of party) to vote "NO on cloture" for Gorsuch—check out the Indivisible Guide's newly updated script on this here.
- Urge your member of congress to oppose escalating U.S. military involvement in Yemen
A bipartisan group of House members is demanding that President Trump seek Congressional approval before escalating U.S. involvement in Yemen’s civil war. Reps. Mark Pocan [D-WI], Justin Amash [R-MI]; Ted Lieu [D-CA] and Walter Jones [R-NC] are circulating a letter to the President that says, “Congress has never authorized the actions under consideration.”
