An action a day keeps the dictator at bay.

  1. Contact our senators and tell them they are going to have to fight to hold Ruth Bader Ginsberg’s Supreme Court seat open until after January 20. Our Democratic senators are going to have to everything in their power to prevent the appointment of another radical justice to the Supreme Court. Democratic senators are going to have to be willing to add justices to the Supreme Court or impeach some that are already there, such as Clarence Thomas who flouts tradition by advocating for right-wing causes.
  2. Contact our members of Congress and tell them to hold public hearings on whistle blower, Dawn Wooten’s claim that a doctor contracted by ICE in Georgia has performed unnecessary hysterectomies without the consent of the patient. Rep. Jayapal intervened to prevent one victim from being deported. More than 170 members of Congress joined her. Hopefully Rep. Kilmer was among them. Read about it here.
  3. Contact Rep. Kilmer and tell the House must begin impeachment proceedings against Attorney General Bill Barr. Barr has been lying on cable news programs about mail-in ballots and voter fraud. He even said you lose your right of privacy when you vote by mail because “they know who you voted for,” which is a total, absolute and complete lie. This man is supposed to enforce the laws of the United States. Read about it here.
  4. Contact Rep. Kilmer and tell him to vote for H.R.3884, the “Marijuana Opportunity, Reinvestment, and Expungement (MORE) Act.” Kilmer is not yet a co-sponsor for this bill, which would remove marijuana from the federal Controlled Substances Act. This would allow individual states to determine their own marijuana laws. Read about it here.
  5. Contact our members of Congress and tell them to address the issue uncovered by ProPublica that a disproportionate number of COVID-19 deaths occur in heavily polluted areas. Read about it here.
  6. Contact our senators and tell them to co-sponsor S.4012/H.R.7197, the RESTAURANTS Act of 2020 and contact Rep. Kilmer for co-sponsoring H.R.7197. This bill temporarily establishes and provides funding for the Restaurant Revitalization Fund, from which the Department of the Treasury shall make grants to eligible food and beverage purveyors. For the grant program’s initial period, Treasury must (1) prioritize awarding grants to marginalized and underrepresented communities, and (2) only award grants to eligible food and beverage purveyors with annual revenues of less than $1.5 million. Further, an entity that received a loan under the Paycheck Protection Program established to support small businesses in response to COVID-19 (i.e., coronavirus disease 2019) may not apply for or use a restaurant revitalization grant for the same expenses for which the entity received the paycheck protection loan.
