#TakeAction – September 30, 2019
Monday! Hey team, welcome to another week of resistance. I’m so grateful that we are in this fight together. L’shana tova to all those celebrating today. The House is on recess for two weeks, except of course the Judiciary Committee. Here are a couple reminders, and also something you can do to #TakeAction today.
🔶 Cancelled: No Community Meeting this Saturday
🔶 Sign up for Salmon Days shifts
🔶 Call our Senators re: Ben Carson’s remarks
- No meeting: We are cancelling this Saturday’s meeting. There are several of us on the Leadership Team and Events Team that won’t be here on Saturday. Plus, traffic will be super difficult with Salmon Days going on. I’ll be posting an update later on this week in lieu of a meeting, and we’ll see you in November!
- Salmon Days: The 5th and 41st Dems are hosting a booth at Salmon Days this weekend. I’ve been at the booth the past couple of years, talking to people, registering voters, etc. Its really fun, and especially fun to see how much more activity our booth gets than the Republican booth just across from us. 😂😂 Here’s the sign up: https://signup.com/client/invitation2/secure/2919460/false#/invitation
- Ben Carson: In the craziness of last week, I missed the news of Ben Carson’s awful remarks re: transgender people Call our Senators and ask them to demand Carson’s resignation.
