ACTION PLAN: PRESIDENT’S DAY 2017 — OPPOSE NEW EXECUTIVE ORDER RE-ESTABLISHING MUSLIM BAN
Yes, he’s making another attempt to circumvent the Constitution, the courts, and our American values by a new executive order putting the Muslim Ban back in place. Tell your government reps you expect them to oppose it.
HERE’S THE EASY WAY TO DO THAT
Send free faxes via email from your desktop or phone using FaxZero, which comes pre-loaded with the fax numbers of every senator and member of the House of Representatives.
1. OPEN FAXZERO. It’s pretty self-explanatory, and comes with a list of addresses of your representatives. If you have questions, here are a few tips you may find helpful.
2. UPLOAD A LETTER. Here’s a template you can use:
Dear [Name of representative],
I understand the President is about to issue another executive order reinstating the Muslim Ban. This ban is a disgrace to our Constitution and to human decency. I ask that you oppose it in every way that you can.
I will be watching to see what you choose to do in this defining moment of American history.
[Your name and zip code]
3. SEND LETTERS to your senators and congressional representatives. They will tabulate the results because they know you vote in their district; that’s why you put in your zip code. Don’t waste time sending to others, as politicians ignore the opinions of anybody who can’t vote for them in the next election. (Not being cynical, just realistic.)
4. YOU’RE DONE! Congratulations on making a difference today.
WHAT’S COMING UP?
Saturday, March 4: Family activity to make protest posters. What for? See next.
Wednesday, March 8: International Women’s Day March in Seville
Mid March: Gathering at The Merchant Pub, date to be announced
Mark your calendar and let us know if you can help us organize one of these events. We’re looking for people with kids and/or artistic ability to help with the posters, and we could use a few more Resisters to organize our part of the march and prepare for our night at the pub. We'll have more details next week, but if you're interested now, write us at email@example.com or in the comments section below.
