Calls to Action for Thursday, August 31

Three vetted calls – just read the scripts 

1. Senator Feinstein at (202) 224-3841 or (415) 393-0707

“I am _____, a concerned constituent calling from (zip) because Senator Feinstein is on both the Senate Intelligence Committeee as well as the ranking minority member Senate Judiciary Committee. I would like these two key committees to hold public hearings on Russia’s actions during the 2016 elections. Hearings should include public testimony, under oath from Jared Kushner, Paul Manafort, Donald Trump Jr., Jeff Sessions, and Glenn Simpson.

I also have concerns about her comments at the Commonwealth Club that Trump could change to become a good president. When in this man’s life have we ever seen evidence that he will be something different?”

2. Senator Harris at (202) 224-3553 or (415) 355-9041

“I am _____, a concerned constituent calling from (zip) because Senator Harris is on the Senate Intelligence Committee. I would like this key committee to hold public hearings on Russia’s actions during the 2016 elections. Hearings should include public testimony, under oath from Jared Kushner, Paul Manafort, Donald Trump Jr., Jeff Sessions, and Glenn Simpson.”

3. Three quick issues for our Representatives – DACA, Arpaio, and Harvey relief vs. border wall:

“I’m a constituent from (zip). I have three quick statements for Rep. ____. First, I want to thank Rep. ____ for co-sponsoring the American Hope Act which gives those with DACA and others who arrived in the US as children a path to permanent legal status and eventual citizenship.

I’m also outraged that Trump issued a pardon of former sheriff Joe Arpaio. I ask that Rep. ___ publicly condemn this blatant abuse of power and dangerous acceptance of corrupt, racist law enforcement officials.

Finally, I’m asking Rep. ____ to set partisan issues aside to pass a robust Hurricane Harvey disaster relief fund and oppose any spending on a US-Mexico border wall.

Thank you for your time.”

Calls to Action for Tuesday, August 29

Scripts provided below – let’s each make two calls today!

“I am only one, but still I am one. I cannot do everything, but still I can do something; I will not refuse to do the something I can do.” ~ Helen Keller

1. Thank Harris and Feinstein for their support of S. 1615, a bi-partisan bill only currently signed by seven senators including them. This is the Durbin-Graham “DREAM Act” which creates a legislative fix to the predicament of these 800,000 young Americans in the DACA program, and takes their future out of Trump’s hands.

Rough script:

“I’m a constituent from (zip). I am calling to thank the Senator for her support of the “DREAM Act” which protects so many young Americans in DACA. I urge her to do all she can to fight for DACA, as I know this week is crucial to its survival. Thank you.”

  • Senator Harris: (202) 224-3553 or (415) 355-9041
  • Senator Feinstein (202) 224-3841 or (415) 393-0707

2. Three quick issues for our Representatives – DACA, Arpaio, and Harvey relief vs. border wall:

Rough script:

“I’m a constituent from (zip). I have three quick statements for Rep. ____. First, I want to thank Rep. ____ for co-sponsoring the American Hope Act which gives those with DACA and others who arrived in the US as children a path to permanent legal status and eventual citizenship.

Call to Action for Wednesday, August 23

TAKE ACTION to support affordable housing! Use this link to customize and send a letter to your California State Assembly member: https://www.congressweb.com/lwvofca/15

Urge lawmakers to vote YES on Senate bills SB 2 “Homes and Jobs Act” (Atkins) and SB 3 “Affordable Housing Bond Act of 2018” (Beall), and on Assembly bill AB 71 “Bring California Home Act” (Chiu) that address the lack of affordable homes, reverse bad policies and provide sustainable revenue streams for California’s future.

BACKGROUND INFORMATION

The California Housing Consortium partnered with Housing California to develop a Fact Sheet for SB 2 and AB 71 to inform decision-makers as they take action this year to address the state’s affordable housing crisis. These two pieces of legislation come at a crucial time for California, when state housing investment has plummeted by 69% in the last decade, worsening an already devastating housing shortage.

Call to Action for Monday, August 21

CONTACT INFORMATION
http://act.everytown.org/sign/end-hate-fueled-gun-violence-p/

Sign the pledge and stand with in solidarity with Everytown for Gun Safety to end open carry and stop the culture of hate-fueled gun violence.

BACKGROUND INFORMATION
On August 12, 2017, hundreds of white supremacist protesters descended upon Charlottesville, Virginia, and marched through the city with a militia that was openly carrying assault rifles and other weapons. A loophole in the laws of many states allows people to openly carry guns in public without a permit, training, or so much as a background check. Many hate groups rationalize their decision to bring a militia is protected by the First and Second Amendments, but let’s not be fooled. Those that came to Charlottesville openly carrying firearms were not conveying a nonviolent political message, engaged in self-defense, or protecting hearth and home.

AUGUST MEETING RECAP

Instagram: @SilverLunaProject

Our August meeting was last week and as always it was wonderful to come together with our TWWSJ friends. This month we featured a presentation from some young women from the Silver Luna Project that are organizing a donation drive for pads and tampons for women for low-income, homeless women in need. Our members were generous with their donations and moved by wonderful project. You can find out more about the Silver Luna Project and where you can donate on Facebook.

–> Click here to watch the video from our August Meeting

MEMBER NEWS & UPDATES

  • Our last email newsletter highlighted a campaign to raise funds to help South Texas communities fight Trump’s proposed border wall. TWWSJ member donations helped to fund a protest march of hundreds of people AND helped the campaign get coverage in major national media, their two main goals. Here’s the story in the New York Times.
  • On Sunday, August 6 the TWWSJ EARTH action group came together and organized a Movie Night to see An Inconvenient Sequel.


TAKE ACTION


1. Support this House Resolution to fire any White House staff who have encouraged white supremacists.

It has been signed by 31 House Democrats, including Silicon Valley’s own Ro Khanna. Our CTA team made a lot of calls to check if Lofgren and Eshoo have signed it and it appears they have not. So, please call your rep – either thank Khanna or ask the other two if they have signed and encourage them to do so. (It doesn’t have an official number at this time, but was proposed by Rep. Jayapal in March.)

More info here: http://www.seattletimes.com/…/rep-jayapal-calls-on-trump-t…/

Zoe Lofgren: (202) 225-3072 or (408) 271-8700
Ro Khanna: (202) 225-2631 or (408) 436-2720
Anna Eshoo: (202) 225-8104 or (408) 245-2339

2. Object to Hate Having a Voice in San Francisco

White supremacist groups are planning to come to the Bay Area, including Crissy Field. The park service is reconsidering its decision of granting them a permit, and has set up a comment line. Please leave a message at the recording at 415-561-2822 to voice your concerns.

Also, donate to this fundraiser and money will be donated for every hour hate groups gather next weekend in San Francisco.

3. Please send words of love and encouragement to the youth of Charlottesville through postcards.

Postcards can be mailed to P.O. Box 814, Charlottesville, VA 22902.

4. Sign this petition from our friends at Color of Change to remove Confederate symbols.

5. Consider donating to victims’ medical expenses. There may be more but these are the ones I’ve found:

6. Call our senators and demand the removal of Bannon, Miller, and Gorka, who white supremacists see as an advocate for their cause.

“I’m [name] and I’m a constituent in [zip]. I am horrified by the rise of white supremacy in America. White supremacists say that Trump is supportive of their views and see Bannon, Miller and Gorka as their advocates in the White House. It is intolerable to have these men remain as White House advisers. A divided country can never heal until they are removed. I urge the Senator to demand that these three men be dismissed from the White House.”

Senator Harris: (202) 224-3553 or (415) 355-9041

Calls to Action for Tuesday, August 15

“Some people hold torches. The rest of us carry a light within as we work for liberty and justice.” ~ Jen Hofmann

1. Charlottesville. We will continue to battle hatred and racism every day in our words and actions. These are some small things we can do now:

2. Call our senators and demand the removal of Bannon, Miller, and Gorka, who white supremacists see as an advocate for their cause.

I’m [name] and I’m a constituent in [zip]. I am horrified by the rise of white supremacy in America. White supremacists say that Trump is supportive of their views and see Bannon, Miller and Gorka as their advocates in the White House.

  • Senator Feinstein: (202) 224-3841 or (415) 393-0707

3. DACA. Today marks the 5th anniversary since the first DACA application was filed. Since then, DACA has allowed 800,000 qualified immigrant youth to gain legal protection, go to college, and support their families and communities.

4. Today is the last day of the public comment period for marine monuments and sanctuaries. Four National Marine Sanctuaries out of the 11 on the chopping block are in CA: Monterey Bay, Channel Islands, Cordell Bank, and Greater Farallones. Please speak up for their protection on this official government comment website. Here is the link: https://www.regulations.gov/comment?D=NOAA-NOS-2017-0066-0001

Rough script to paste in:

I write to add my voice and show the strong public desire that monuments and sanctuaries not be altered or eliminated, and that the U.S. maintain all of the current protections for these diverse marine ecosystems. These unique places benefit all Americans, including future generations. Do NOT open them up to oil drilling and the dire risk of pollution!

Take Action: Protect National Monuments

The Trump administration is reviewing national monuments and marine sanctuaries to determine if they need to be shrunk down or opened up to resource extraction (i.e. mining, drilling, fracking, logging). What can we do to protect our federal lands?

Support national marine sanctuaries

Leave a comment on regulations.gov to say you support keeping our marine sanctuaries at their current size and protections. This includes a local sanctuary in Monterey Bay! http://bit.ly/2t5oMTy

Write a postcard to Secretary of the Interior Ryan Zinke. Let him know that you oppose reduction of national monuments and marine sanctuaries. Voice your opposition to resource extraction on public land, especially in the current lax regulatory climate.

Stand up for the Giant Sequoias Monument.

Here’s a national monument in our own state in danger of being opened up to logging and reduction in size. From Wild Places:

“Department of the Interior Secretary Zinke recently initiated a ‘review’ of twenty seven national monuments created under the Antiquities Act, including Giant Sequoia National Monument (GSNM, or Giant Sequoia). Over the last month, it has become clear that Giant Sequoia is under particular threat–the logging industry is pushing for a ⅔ reduction in size, and more “active management”–i.e., opening up the long-protected forest to logging, which is prohibited by the current monument management plan. Logging interests, exploiting and increasing local concern about bark beetle infestations and the monument’s susceptibility to wildfire, and generally poor funding and management by the U.S. Forest Service have all led to a scenario where some local governments led by Kevin McCarthy are advocating for a reduction in size and/or in reduced management protections.

Giant Sequoia National Monument protects 328,315 acres in the Sierra Nevada. It is most notable for its collection of towering giant sequoias, vast, lush mountain meadows, and thousands of miles of pristine streams. Native Americans have inhabited the area for at least the past 8,000 years, leaving behind artifacts, petroglyphs, and village sites. The Giant Sequoia, only naturally viable on the western slope of our Sierra Nevada, are some of the largest and oldest living trees on earth.”

There are lots of ways to support the sequoias!

Tweet or post on Facebook using the hashtag #savethegiants to spread awareness of the campaign.

Take Action: How the Border Wall Threatens the Environment

Issue: The Dept. of Homeland Security announced 8/1/17 that it will use a waiver to exempt itself from environmental and other laws and will start construction of the border wall in the San Diego area within months.

Details: By using the waiver, DHS is using a 2006 (Bush-era) legal loophole to avoid standard environmental review and safeguards, including the Endangered Species Act and the National Environmental Policy Act. Normally, an environmental impact study is required before building on public lands. The border is an area of biological diversity, and the wall is expected to impact endangered species, migratory patterns, and flooding. Rules that will be waived affect issues such as endangered species, clean water, and waste removal. http://www.sandiegouniontribune.com/business/economy/sd-fi-border-wall-environmental-20170801-story.html

Action: Tell your senators and that you want an environmental review before construction is started on the border wall. Potential environmental issues along the proposed wall include flooding and negative consequences for migratory patterns and endangered species. According to the Washington Post, Rep. William Hurd (R-Texas), says that there’s a lack of understanding of the type of wall that might be needed (he favors a much-less expensive and less-intrusive digital wall of sensors and security cameras, supported by border agents and drones). The Trump administration is having problems even with designing a prototype for the wall. We shouldn’t start building a wall without a well-thought out plan, including an environmental review. (Read more about this in the Washington Post.)

Issue: Santa Ana Wildlife Refuge will be cut in half and may be impacted by flooding from a proposed levee wall.

Details: The Santa Ana Wildlife Refuge (Alamo, TX) is an area of great biological diversity and is home to a number of endangered species. Since the land is already owned by the federal government, it has been selected as an area to begin the border wall. Construction could start within a few months. The administration may use legal loopholes to avoid standard environmental review and safeguards, including the Endangered Species Act and the National Environmental Policy Act. The refuge could literally be cut in half by the wall, affected endangered species and migratory patterns, and a proposed levee wall could cause flooding in the area. http://refugeassociation.org/2017/07/santa-ana-national-wildlife-refuge-ground-zero-for-border-wall-expansion/

Action: Donate to Lower Rio Grande Valley’s Sierra Club GoFundMe campaign for funding events to raise people’s awareness of the issue. https://www.gofundme.com/resist-the-wall-save-santa-ana

You can also include concerns about the refuge when you contact your senators.

Issue: DHS take-over and destruction of private property at National Butterfly Center (Mission, TX)

Details: Contractors from DHS entered the National Butterfly Center’s 100 acre refuge in July and started clearing land in preparation for construction of the border wall. The National Butterfly Center is private property and it has not given permission for a wall to be built. The center is raising $ to fight the wall and to publicize the issue. http://www.texasmonthly.com/the-daily-post/butterflies-versus-border-patrol/

Action: Donate to National Butterfly Center’s crowdfunding campaign which will fund their fight against DHS take-over of their property. https://www.generosity.com/community-fundraising/stop-trump-s-border-wall

You can also include concern about the National Butterfly Center when you contact your senators.

MEMBER NEWS & UPDATES

  • Come to Our August Meeting! Our next monthly meetings is coming up this Tuesday, August 8. Room opens at 6:30, new member orientation at 6:45, and meeting starts at 7pm. Guest speaker will be Matt King from Sacred Heart Community Services to talk about the many programs they run to help support our community. We hope to see you there!
  • “Trump Fires Mueller” Protest Plan (Shared by TWWSJ’s Indivisible action group): In the event that Trump fires Special Counsel Robert Mueller, protests are planned throughout the country. Locally our plan is to meet at San Jose City Hall Plaza. If he is is fired before 2 pm Pacific time, we will meet @ 5 pm later that day; if after 2 pm, we will meet @ noon the next day. However, even if it occurs after 2 pm, we may still decide to protest that day, depending on how late it’s announced. Please refer to the TWW FB page for updated info. Can’t make it to SJ City Hall or have family/friends out of the area who may want to join the protest? Check out marchfortruth.info for a list of events around the country.

TAKE ACTION


1. Donate to fight the border wall & protect a National Wildlife Refuge in South Texas.

(Shared by TWWSJ member & Interesectionality Action Group leader, Ana Cantu) The Trump administration is laying the foundation for the border wall in South Texas at the Santa Ana Wildlife Refuge, a critical habitat for endangered species. I grew up nearby and went there often as a kid when the butterflies migrated through. It’s a lovely spot and currently draws a lot of eco-tourists and schoolchildren. However, the refuge is located in the poorest region of the United States and many residents there have the will but lack the resources to oppose the wall. Donate if you can to the resistance effort led by a local Sierra Club chapter. And if you can’t donate, share the link with your networks.
