Stop Trumpcare: Emergency Townhall to plan action in D.C. for July 19th

July 17, 2017 @ 7:00 pm

YOU DO NOT HAVE TO RISK ARREST TO HELP

In spite of what you may have read about how Mitch McConnell is struggling to round up 50 votes, Trumpcare is dangerously close to passing, with amendments cued up and a fresh stack of money to buy off wavering Senators.

Join us on Monday to learn how to take part in an exciting national action TARGETING ALL 52 REPUBLICAN SENATORS in their D.C. offices. You’ll be joining hundreds of people from across the country who feel as passionately as you do about stopping this despicable bill. We need to fill eight buses from New York city to back up smaller teams traveling from far away places like Alaska, etc.

Charles King of Housing Works will answer questions about civil disobedience (it involves only a few hours in jail and a $50 fine which will be paid for you), but you don’t have to risk arrest to join us. We will answer all your questions about the action, and what else you can do.

This bill would be one of the worst things the Trump administration will ever do, and it’s right on the edge. A major action like this could tip things in our favor. Please arrange now to take a day off on Weds. The buses will leave around 4 am on Weds. and will start back around midnight Weds. Accommodations can be arranged for those who would like to stay over in DC on Weds. night.

It’s now or never – please come to get more info!

And if you can’t come, you can donate to help others go:
