Hello Nob Hill Indivisibles,
National Day of Action: Tuesday, May 21, 2019, 12pm
STOP THE BANS rally
Join us on Tuesday, May 21, 2019 for a rally at Robinson Park in Albuquerque as part of a national day of action to put a stop to the abortion bans being enacted across the country.
We know that the abortion ban in Alabama, as well as other states across the nation, are unconstitutional and against our values. We know that Abortion is Health Care and that Health Care is Not a Crime. Every single person who believes in the right to make our own decisions about our own bodies needs to step up now, to ensure that we can protect access to abortion care in our state, as well as across the country.
Show our political leaders that we will not stand for these outdated and unconstitutional bans!
Please bring friends, family, coworkers, neighbors, signs, t-shirts, and be ready to protect access to abortion care!
Tell us you’re coming, https://www.facebook.com/events/646513829502423/
Call our Federal MoCs! for contact info, click here.
1. No vote should be held on the revised NAFTA 2.0 until key improvements are made!
That means removing monopolies for Big Pharma that would keep medicine prices high, strengthening the labor and environmental provisions, and making sure the deal is subject to swift and certain enforcement. Call and write your Rep, you can do so via Public Citizen by clicking here.
2. Communities around the US are facing grave threats to their health due to toxic Per- and Poly-fluoroalkyl Substances (PFAS) -- highly toxic "forever chemicals" used to make thousands of products including Teflon pans, fast food wrappers, and fire-fighting foam. Tell our MoCs to take action on PFAS bills moving through the Capitol now! Ask them to step up and regulate PFAS, clean up contamination, and close legal loopholes to prevent future crises of this nature. You can send a letter via the Sierra Club by clicking here.
3.Two weeks ago, the Equality Act passed out of committee and is heading for a House floor vote. The Equality Act would cover employment, housing, credit, education, public spaces and services, federally funded programs, and jury service. Call your Rep and ask them to support the Equality Act.
4. If you haven’t done it yet, please do: Take the 2020 pledge. Indivisible national is asking all democratic candidates to sign a pledge. The pledge callson the now 23 presidential candidates to treat the primary as an exchange of ideas while respecting their opponents and to immediately support the eventual nominee, working together to "do the work to beat Trump." Send a letter and/or tweet to all the candidates and ask them to take the pledge. Click here for a list with contact info and scripts.
Persistence perseveres. Last week, the Maine Senate passed the National Popular Vote bill 19-16, thus becoming the 39th state legislative chamber to do so. The bill now goes to the Maine House. Maine has 4 electoral votes. The House-passed bill in Minnesota is now in a conference committee. Minnesota has 10 electoral votes. If NPV passes in these two States, there will be 203 electoral college votes, 67 shy of the total needed to make this a national pact!!!!If you know anyone in these States, ask them to call their State Legislators and pass this Bill!!
