Goodlatte Initiative

The Delivery

Goodlatte’s constituents sang happy birthday to him! Facebook Video.


Bob Goodlatte (R, 6th District VA) is the head of the House Judiciary Committee. The press has not paid enough attention to him and his pivotal role in blocking the impeachment bill coming from his committee, which is stopping further impeachments measures.

Indivisible on impeachment.

Republican feeling about this:
In May, “Rep. Justin Amash (R-Mich.) … said if the reports about Trump’s pressure on Comey are true, it would merit impeachment.” from The Hill.

Impeachment bills:
H.Res 438
& one to be introduced by Rep. Cohen (TN-09), Ranking Member of the House Judiciary Subcommittee on the Constitution and Civil Justice: Press Release,


The local Indivisible group in Roanoke, VA in his district is planning an event with the help of Indivisible National. They are asking citizens to write Rep. Goodlatte a birthday card as his birthday is in late September. Of course, there are lots of reasons to call for 45’s impeachment, especially in light of his pardoning of Sheriff Arpaio. Please write a postcard to: BRRAVA, PO BOX 3107, Roanoke, WA 24015 by September 18th. Post card writing party anyone??? I suspect there will be a stunt in delivering the cards to bring media attention to this MoC.

“Arpaio didn’t just violate a law passed by Congress…His actions defied the Constitution itself,” from NY Times.


Below is a PDF of the front and back of a postcard that can be used. You can print and use both sides, or if you can choose to only use the front side. And you can write your very own birthday card also! Three options!

Note: This request comes from a friend who is active in Indivisible in Roanoke, who has already gotten TV coverage, so this “ask” is legitimate and possibly very fruitful! Liz Powell
