Aloha!
 
This is the second weekly action email from Kauai Indivisible.
We’ve got some pretty exciting actions for you this week, so we’re going to dive right in.

Action 1.

Join the resistance this Sunday, February 26, from 2 to 3 p.m. at the State Building in Lihue. 

This week, members of Congress are facing their constituents for the first time since the inauguration. Suffice to say that for Republicans it has been awkward. As the L.A. Times puts it: “Loud and angry, protesters turn congressional town halls into must-see political TV.” We don’t think Kauai should have to miss out on the fun just because we’re a deep blue island in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. So we’re partnering with a few other progressive organizations to hold a short but intense rally to make our presence felt and let Brian, Maizie, Tulsi, and their colleagues know where we stand. Please come out and show your support! RSVP to majchk@gmail.com and cc: the Democrat District 16-2 secretary at psgegen@hotmail.com.

Action 2.

Help us get organized: join – or lead – a Kauai Indivisible committee. Visit this committee sign-up page to let us know how you’d like to be involved.

We came up with a few ideas, but we hope you will offer your own. We only exist to help each other take action: from organizing rallies, to raising money, to recruiting the next generation of progressive candidates, to phone banking for upcoming elections in other states – there are ton of ways to get involved. We just need people to take the lead and help make it happen.

Action 3.

Ask Tulsi to investigate Trump’s ties to Russia.

Stealing this one from 5Calls.org: “House Republicans like House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes have continually resisted calls for a thorough investigation of Russian electoral interference. To ensure an independent investigation of the Trump-Russia connection, 198 House Democrats and one House Republican are co-sponsoring HR 356, the Protecting Our Democracy Act. The bill would establish an independent, 12-member commission to fully examine Russian interference in the 2016 elections.”

Rep. Tulsi Gabbard: (808) 541-1986
Sample Script:
Hi, my name is [NAME] and I’m a constituent from [CITY, ZIP]. I’m calling to express my support for HR 356, which would establish an independent, bipartisan commission to investigate Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election. There is no room for partisan politics around an issue that threatens the integrity of our democracy. Thank you for your hard work answering the phones.
