Action 1: Ask Congress to Oppose GOP Tax Scam

Last week, Republicans completed Phase 1 of their #TrumpTaxScam. Both chambers have now passed budget resolutions needed to unlock the reconciliation process (the same process they tried to use to ram zombie healthcare through, read about it here), allowing them to pass this dumpster fire of a bill with just a simple majority.

We can, and must, kill this bill with constituent power. The tax fight and the healthcare fight are the SAME FIGHT (read why here). And, just like with healthcare, we can defeat them with nationwide constituent power. On your home turf. On the phone. In DC. Your voice can shape this fight. If we kill this bill, we’ll not only deny Trump yet another win, but we’ll also demoralize the GOP and dry up their campaign contributions. Win. Win. Win.

Today is an Indivisible National Day of Action. We’re asking folks around the country to call their members of Congress to demand that they oppose the #TrumpTaxScam.

Action 2: Phone Bank at Home to Get Out the Vote for Virginia Election

For too long, Democrats have been ignoring state politics and have allowed Republicans to take over both state legislatures and the Governor's offices. Out of 50 states, 34 of them have Republican governors. We have to turn the tide, starting with the 2017 Virginia Governor's race.

Virginians go to the polls next Tuesday in the first state-wide elections since Trump was elected. This is the first real test of our movement’s ability to turn the resistance into electoral power and we. can. WIN. Our organizing team teamed up with Democracy for America and to build a tool (similar to our blue state calling tool from the healthcare fight!) where you can call or text voters in Virginia from the comfort of your own home to encourage them to vote. Sign up now to volunteer before election day!

Action 3: Phone Bank for ACA Signups

The 2018 ACA Open Enrollment dates are November 1 - December 15, 2017. Trump has not only shortened the window to enroll; he has also slashed the advertising budget by 90%. We need to get the word out to people to sign up for 2018 coverage during the open enrollment dates.

That’s why Indivisible Illinois is setting up phone banks to notify folks about the enrollment dates to make sure as many people as possible sign up for healthcare in 2018. RSVP to phone bank here and follow the event on Facebook for updates on upcoming phone bank session.
