Today I found a new website called 5 Calls, which gives you issues and scripts for calling your representatives. I made all of the phone calls they recommended for my zip code, although I didn’t always use the scripts provided:
- Called the Army Corps of Engineers Civil Works Department to protest the Dakota Access Pipeline
- Called Sen. Casey and Sen. Toomey to ask them to oppose Betsy DeVos, Tom Price, Scott Pruitt, and Jeff Sessions. The site asks you to call both of your representatives and the chairs of the Senate Committees, but from what I have heard, you should just contact your own representatives. Other Senators and Representatives don’t care about your opinion if you are not their constituent.
- Called Casey and Toomey to ask them to oppose the repeal of the Affordable Care Act
I think there is nothing much we can do to oppose some of the horrible Executive Actions that are flooding out this week. The only thing I can think of is make more donations to the ACLU. Any other ideas?
I am also following the new protests that are developing, including the April 15 Tax Day March and the Scientists March on Washington (Date TBD). I have already booked a hotel for April.
