Action: Do Now

Thank the Obama Administration for taking action in DAPL.

Thank the Standing Rock protesters. 

Sign a petition to save Medicare.

DO NOW: Administrators at the following email addresses are tracking emails in support of Elizabeth Warren’s request to audit Trump’s finances. I sent one email to all three, using the bcc: option. Please do this, every little bit helps.
The email addresses are:
siggerudk@gao.gov
minellit@gao.gov
congrel@gao.gov
The text of my letter was one sentence:
“I’m writing in support of Senator Elizabeth Warren’s request for an audit of our incoming President Elect’s finances, to prohibit conflicts of interest that would prevent him from carrying out the responsibilities of the office without corrupt influence.”
Thanks…we are all in this together!

Sign the petition to Stop Bannon!

Check out this helpful list of actions compiled from the last week.

DONATE! There are so many amazing organizations working hard to combat hate, offer good investigative journalism, and save our planet. Instead of buying more stuff we don’t need, consider donating to these organizations.

READ, READ, READ!!!! There’s tons of stuff out there. But these are my two favorites for today.

Be kind. Be patient. People are feeling frayed at the moment. Take some time to offer a smile, hold the door for someone. Simple actions go a long way. We had a major victory this week. This allows for everyone breath a little deeper to do the work that needs to be done now.

Catalogue your strengths. Are you a good organizer? Are you loud? Are you a good researcher? Make a list of what you are good at. Then think about all the issues you care about. How can you take a few minutes a day to help the environment? Educate someone?

Lastly, we are looking for Spanish speakers in California willing to donate some time to assist with the Guardianship Project. Email me if you are interested in working with the undocumented population, or if you have connections with organizations that serve this population. More on this once we get the action rolling.
