Action 1: Demand Congress Support Rep. Tlaib's Impeachment Resolution

Trumps isn’t even trying to hide it any more. Yesterday, he admitted to George Stephenopoulos that he wouldn't necessarily alert the FBI if approached by foreign figures with information on his 2020 opponent: "It’s not an interference. They have information. I think I’d take it."

But Congress doesn’t need to take this statement as evidence because the Mueller report confirms what we've always known: Trump abused his authority, violated the law, and tried repeatedly to obstruct justice. These are impeachable offenses. If Attorney General William Barr has proven anything, it's that he's a political operative whose priority is protecting Trump, not our democracy. It's up to Congress to do what Barr will not.

With control of the House, Democrats should use their investigatory power to begin investigations into whether Donald Trump has committed crimes that would justify his impeachment. Rep. Rashida Tlaib's resolution is a good step forward.

Call your member of Congress (MoC) and tell them to co-sponsor Rep. Rashida Tlaib's resolution (H.Res. 257) and begin investigating whether Trump should be impeached.

Action 2: Thank Governor Pritzker for Signing the Reproductive Health Act

Thanks to the hard work of activists across the state, the Reproductive Health Act was signed into law yesterday by Governor J.B. Pritzker. Illinois residents no longer have to worry about critical important rights being taken away if Roe is overturned:

  • Lack of insurance coverage for abortion care and birth control

  • Mandatory spousal consent for abortion

  • 24-hour waiting periods

  • Bans on assisted reproductive techniques like in vitro fertilization (IVF)

Call the governor to thank him for protecting reproductive freedoms in Illinois!

Call Governor Pritzker: (217) 782-0244

Script: Hi, my name is [NAME] and I’m a constituent from [zip code] and a member of Indivisible. I’m calling to thank Governor Pritzker for signing the Reproductive Health Act. I’m grateful that the governor supports reproductive freedoms while they are under attack across the rest of the country. Thank you!
