Weekly Update 1/29/18
Good evening, friends.
Today has been a day of discouraging news, as Trump and his toadies continued their assault on Democratic norms. The Deputy Director of the FBI was forced to resign earlier than expected due to pressure from the Administration. In Congress, the House Intelligence Committee voted to release a bogus memo launching a hyper-partisan attack on the FBI, thanks to Chairman Devin Nunes. And Trump failed to implement sanctions on Russia, despite overwhelming bi-partisan support.
In times like these, we need to look to the future, and to each other for support. Over the past year, we have built an amazing community of dedicated activists in Sacramento and around the nation. Rather than get discouraged, we need to keep up our efforts. Together we are keeping American democracy alive. And this year, we will all come together to defeat cowardly Congressmen like Nunes, who are so afraid of their party’s big donors that they have stopped caring about our country’s freedom.
Thank you for standing with us. Thank you for being Indivisible.
The Dream Act is still a top priority for Indivisible nationwide. Please take some time to visit their website and learn about it if you’re not already familiar. California’s Senators are “Dream Heroes,” who have voted to stand with Dreamers. Please call them and thank them this week – even if you’ve already done so before. They like to hear from us when they’re doing a good job. And please urge them to keep up the battle to pass a clean Dream Act.
Our next meeting will be held on February 21st at 7:00. Our meetings are the third Wednesday evening of every month at Sierra2 Center, 2791 24th Street in Sacramento.
