IKC CALL TO ACTION

NO ONE IS ABOVE THE LAW

 

10/29/19

 

No doubt you've heard already about the 30 or so House Republicans who “stormed” the secure conference room used by the House Intelligence Committee last week. The political stunt was a multi-hour protest by Rs who demanded access to closed-door testimony -- only available to the three committees leading the impeachment inquiry -- but who also included 12 who have access to the information already!

 

There was a lot of concern over violations of security protocols, with members bringing electronic devices into the SCIF (Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility) and making phone calls and taking videos. On top of all this, there was an unauthorized camera crew in tow using expired House ID badges. Maybe more importantly, members’ cell phones are not secure.  POTUS is given two cell phones, one for phone calls and the other for apps, and that phone is rotated every few months (Trump, though, is breaking these rules). Members of Congress should be afforded this same level of support for all their communications, fwiw.

 

Security protocols are NOT a partisan issue -- though this administration has a precision touch of Midas when it comes to politicizing everything -- and you can call the congressional offices in MO and KS to let your representatives know that this situation is unacceptable.

Details on Trump's misdeeds continue to pour out (look here for a timeline of what to watch for this week), but here's what we know:

Trump pushed Ukraine to interfere in our 2020 elections.

He used US military aid to pressure them to dig up dirt on his potential 2020 opponent.

Then he tried to cover it up.

 

If the average person did this, they’d go to jail.

 

While we continue to work toward realizing our progressive goals for healthcare, the economy, a livable planet, and civil rights for all, we must pursue impeachment proceedings. Because nobody is above the law.

 

WHAT YOU CAN DO:

Please call your Senators and Rep each day to ask them to support the impeachment inquiry. It’s a matter of justice! See our website for contact info, and a handy guide on making calls, writing letters, and taking new steps in activism.

MISSOURI MEDICAID PETITION 

We’re working to put Medicaid expansion on the ballot to bring health care to 215,000 people in Missouri, and we need your help.

We'll spend our weekends this fall gathering signatures with our friends at Jobs With Justice and Planned Parenthood Votes.

 

If you've never gathered signatures before, this is a great one to start with because most people are familiar with the issue and overjoyed to give their signature.

IKC Call to Action:

GUN VIOLENCE IN AMERICA

 

9/4/19

 

From our friends at Everytown for Gun Safety:


September is Suicide Prevention Awareness Month. Read stories of survivors across the country and share your own.

8/21/19

 

We’re still waiting for Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to bring back the Senate from recess to vote on any number of bills that could prevent gun violence. One, HR8, the Bipartisan Background Check Act, was passed by the House of Representatives in February. And McConnell has sat on it ever since. No compromises. No counter legislation. No action. This bill isn’t the end-all, be-all, of course. But it’s a start. Instead, Republicans are more concerned about how to frame mass shootings as a problem from the left (the linked article contains leaked Republican talking points on why they won’t act on gun violence. Read it. It’s infuriating).

Join the fight for sensible gun legislation.  See how here.

IKC Call to Action:

 

IMMIGRATION

 

We now know that not only are children still being separated from their families and held in cages, but that they have been subjected to serious child abuse, including sexual abuse and neglect.

Now Trump wants to hold them indefinitely, and DHS is making a money grab.

But you can help fight for the kids, families and our Constitution.  Learn more here.

IKC Call to Action:

 

ABORTION BAN

 

Missouri Secretary of State Jay Ashcroft, with the help of Attorney General Eric Schmitt, continues his extremist attack on the rights of Missouri voters and the women of Missouri.

IKC Call to Action:

Take the Indivisible 2020 Pledge


We must defeat Donald Trump. The first step is a primary contest that produces a strong Democratic nominee. The second step is winning the general election. We will not accept anything less. To ensure this outcome, I pledge to:
 

  1. ​Make the primary constructive. We'll make the primary election about our hopes for the future, and a robust debate of values, vision and the contest of ideas. We’ll remain grounded in our shared values, even if we support different candidates. 
     

  2. Rally behind the winner. We'll support the ultimate Democratic nominee, whoever it is — period. No Monday morning quarterbacking. No third-party threats. 
     

  3. Do the work to beat Trump. We’re the grassroots army that’s going to power the nominee to victory, and we’ll show up to make calls, knock doors, and do whatever it takes.
