#resisttrumptuesdays in Melville – Valentines Edition
Many members of Congress haven’t yet scheduled town hall meetings with constituents for the February congressional recess, which is fast approaching (Feb. 18-26).
And, in the last week we’ve seen Trump give handouts to Wall Street at the expense of consumers and rush forward the Dakota Access Pipeline, and push through more dangerous Cabinet picks.
We deserve the chance to meet publicly with our representatives to discuss these vital issues for our democracy.
That’s why, this Valentine’s Day, February 14, we’ll visit our senators and representatives’ local offices with a clear demand: “Let’s Go on a Date: Host a Town Hall!”
The growing #ResistTrumpTuesdays movement has brought out tens of thousands of people to congressional offices across the country and turned media and public opinion against Trump’s Cabinet picks and attempts to cut health care. Our next step is to demand more town hall meetings directly with our members of Congress during the February recess.
Will you join fellow MoveOn members and attend a rally near you this Valentine’s Day, Tuesday, February 14?
This week we’ll be resisting the Republican/Trump agenda with LOVE as our theme. Love of our senators for fighting for our democracy. Love of planet. Love of democracy and democratic values. Love of healthcare. Love of immigrants. Love over hate! Please bring a love letter to read and deliver to our senators offices. And bring your American flags and signs! We’ll be protesting a bit later in the day than usual to allow school kids to join us and anyone who can get off of work a little early.
