Visit Your Senators' Home Office Tomorrow (Tuesday)

January 23, 2017

Tuesday is a day of in-person, nation-wide action to try to convince our Senators to block Trump's unacceptable cabinet picks.

1. Find your Senators district office locations and plan to go there tomorrow, Tuesday - bring friends and family! Your message is simple - ask them to reject Trump's cabinet picks.

2. Do NOT call first to tell them you're coming or to request a meeting - they'll try to get you not to come.

3. RECORD EVERYTHING - take selfies and share them on social media (if you use the hashtag #indivisible they may be able to help you get the word out more widely, you can also use #SwampCabinet and #ResistTrumpTuesdays) and record the meeting on your phone, etc., otherwise, it might be like it never happened - especially if you have a Republican Senator... And share the outcome and your story with your local press, if you can.

4. It's kinda short notice so if you can't go in person, CALL THEM INSTEAD! While not nearly as effective as going in person, a call is the next best thing, better than a printed letter, and waaaay better than an email.

If you're feeling resistance to making time for this, consider the following:

Trump's cabinet picks are truly horrifying -- Rex Tillerson (CEO of Exxon Mobil) for Secretary of State, Ben Carson (possibly an alien - definitely not qualified...) for Secretary of Housing and Urban Development, Betsy DeVos (billionaire with no experience in education and seemingly no fan of public education) as Secretary of Education, Tom Price (anti-choice leader of the opposition to Obamacare) for Secretary of Health, Scott Pruitt as Secretary of EPA, Jeff Sessions (well-known racist!) as Attorney General, Rick Perry (publicly stated he would dismantle the Department of Energy in his run for the Republican nomination) as Secretary of Energy, and more.

Needless to say, these would be truly awful choices for our country...

Those of you who are here in New York, below is all the info for our Senators, Chuck Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand's offices. Although they're pretty good champions, I would personally love to see them take a harder line and be more vocal in their opposition - basically, I want them to channel Elizabeth Warren! That's why it's still super important for them to hear from us - to support them and to let them know we want them to work even harder to counter Trump's agenda.

For those of you here in the Hudson Valley, let me know if you want to go to Albany to visit both of their offices - they're in the same building :) There's also a noon meeting in Albany being organized by another MoveOn member you can RSVP here for that.
