RESIST DAY #84: What You Can Do Today
Resistance in your community, across the country, and around the globe
Thursday, April 13, 2017
- Turn Up the Heat on Members of Congress During a Second Round of Resistance Recess
- At a local forum, hold your representative or senator to account on issues from the confirmation of Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch to the fight for universal healthcare to President Trump's military escalation in Syria.
- Click here to find a town hall taking place near you.
- If your lawmakers are missing-in-action, find a creative way to highlight their absenteeism.
U.S. lawmakers are trying to get the Trump administration to pump the brakes on expanding U.S. military involvement in Yemen—even as the country faces widespread famine—CodePink is holding a week-long #FastingforYemen awareness event.
- Gear Up for Saturday's Tax March
In two days, people will march on Washington, D.C. and around the country to ask Donald Trump: What are you hiding?
- Condemn President Donald Trump's Act of War in Syria
Trump's missile strike "violates some of the most important legal constraints on the use of force."
- Call members of Congress (202-224-3121) and the White House (202-456-1111. ) Demand U.S. negotiations, not war, with Syrian & Russian governments.
- Tell Congress: Cancel recess and vote on Trump's war in Syria.
- Tell Congress: Any debate over Syria must start with accepting refugees who make it through our time-tested and thorough vetting process.
- Take action: Stop U.S. from making #Syria war even worse. Tell Congress: Don't let the U.S. escalate the war in Syria.
- Demand that the U.S. Open Its Borders to Syrian Refugees
The Trump administration is banning the very refugees that are escaping the same terrorism we are claiming to fight. Women's March organizers are demanding that we be a sanctuary and safe haven for Syrian refugees. We call on the government to let in at least 75,000 refugees.
- Tell the EPA What You Think About the Destruction of Environmental Regulations
Scott Pruitt's EPA is seeking public comment on its aggressive rollback of climate and pollution regulations that protect public health and the environment. Go ahead, tell them what you really think.
