With all the craziness of the last week, let’s take a step back for a second.
Saturday was the 4-month anniversary of Trump’s inauguration, and not a single significant piece of legislation has been signed into law. Now don’t get us wrong, Trump is doing as much damage as he possibly can using the tools he has, but your work pressuring Congress is undeniably getting results. Every day we deprive him of a legislative win is a day we protect people from additional harm.
Most recently, this past week, you made the special counsel happen. This is a huge deal—it’s a victory we thought would take weeks or months, if it happened at all. But you got it done, and you got it done fast. As long as Trump is in the White House, this fight continues, and, yes, yet another recess starts on Friday. But as you persist in this resistance, please keep in mind: it’s working.
This Week’s 4 Indivisible Actions
- Defend the Affordable Care Act in the Senate: The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) score is coming on Wednesday, which may kick it back to another vote in the House. Keeping pressure on your Senators is now more important than ever. Keep telling your Senators a vote for TrumpCare is unacceptable. Here’s everything you need to fight back.
- Join us Thursday for a Facebook Live on the TrumpCare CBO Score: On Thursday at 8:30pm ET we’ll be answering your questions live during a special Facebook Live event to talk about the TrumpCare CBO score and what’s next for the legislation in the Senate.
- Save Our Democracy: A special counsel was an important step in the right direction, but it’s not enough. We need an independent commission. Here’s everything you need to tell your MoCs to put Truth before Trump (and keep an eye out—we may see Comey testifying before the House on Wednesday). Get started now with our toolkit on Russia and Trump.
- #TrumpCut Budget Released Tuesday: While Trump’s disaster-of-a-budget proposal won’t become law, it will kick off the budget negotiations. Don’t let Republicans cut vital programs for poor and working class Americans to pay for Trump’s wall and pave the way for tax giveaways to corporations and the rich.
We’re so close! 5 Days left to meet a $50K match challenge
Last week, we asked for your help to do something we’ve never done before—turn $50,000 into $100,000 thanks to a generous donor who has agreed to match your donation dollar-for-dollar until May 26th. We’ve already raised over $30,000. But we only have 5 days left to meet our goal.
If we meet the target, we’ll have enough to hire two new organizers to develop training materials, respond to the hundreds of questions that come in every week, and travel to meet with groups on the ground. This is will be a huge help to our organizing team, which is overwhelmed (in a good way) with questions and requests for support from the field every day. So if you can help contribute a little, this is a great time to do it. For the next 5 days, your donation is doubled. So if you can chip in $50, that means we get $100 to support the Indivisible movement. Any amount is doubled, so whatever makes sense to you, works for us!
It’s another big week ahead, but know that you’re not alone. Local Indivisible groups are driving this movement forward, and we’re here to help every step of the way.
