Weekly Actions: November 21, 2017

Happy Thanksgiving!

It was last Thanksgiving that we laid the groundwork in place for 3NoTrump, publishing our first action on 11/29. Since then we have been working many hours each week to diligently research what is happening and pick three key actions where our voices can help make a difference. At times, this has meant communicating across oceans, waking up at 6 am to write posts, and editing into the wee hours of the night, but we see this as a labor of both love and of urgency. While not everything might have gone to our liking, the resistance has clearly been working and we are happy to have a small role in it.

 

That said, since Congress is currently in recess, we’re taking this Thanksgiving week off. We’ll be back with three important actions on November 27th, but in the meantime, PLEASE CONTINUE PRESSURING THE SENATE TO VOTE NO ON THE TAX BILL, which will be coming up for a vote right after Thanksgiving recess. Indivisible is calling for a day of protest against the tax bill on Monday November 27. They have great resources about the bill, including a calling tool that will let you reach out to people in states with key swing Senators.  So, if you can make a few calls this week in between basting the turkey (or the tofurkey) that would be awesome! You can also get more information about the tax bill in our last two posts. And for a little Thanksgiving inspiration, remember, if just fifty people a day walk in singing a bar of Alice’s Restaurant, they may think it’s a movement!
