- Josh Harder called again to talk about sending interns to his district. We’ll go over this at our next meeting. No Sister District action items today since I included lots last time and more is coming soon. Meanwhile…..
- Tell your senators to end unauthorized US support for the war in Yemen by voting yes on S.J. Res. 7. The Senate is scheduled to vote on this resolution this week, and it’s expected to be close. Call your senators and tell them to make history by voting to end the illegal, immoral US war in Yemen. Read more and find a call script here.
3. From the ACLU We took the Trump administration to court over its decision to add a citizenship question to the 2020 census – and in January, a federal court ruled in our favor. But the fight continues: The Trump administration appealed and now the Supreme Court will take up the case next month.
Our work isn’t done: The government just announced it will accept public comments until March 15.
That means you have 5 DAYS to submit your public comment. Tell the government the census citizenship question is unlawful, anti-immigrant, and goes against the census’ purpose of counting everyone – citizens and noncitizens alike.
4. From the National Resources Defense COuncil
In two days the Trump administration will close the public comment period on the sham Environmental Impact Statement for their plans to hand over the heart of Alaska’s Arctic National Wildlife Refuge to oil and gas drilling.
Trump and his acting Interior Secretary David Bernhardt are pushing hard to open the Arctic Refuge to reckless drilling, and this draft EIS is the next step in their march to open America’s most pristine publicly owned wildlands for Big Oil companies to ravage for profit.
Please, speak out now on behalf of the cherished wildlife of the Arctic Refuge, including wolves, eagles, Porcupine caribou, and polar bears … the region’s Gwich’in people who consider these lands sacred … and our climate.
