1. Let's contact our local and state representatives and ask them to make statements speaking out against white supremacy, such as what occurred in Charlotte.
Also, from Rogan's list: Republican leaders have been more blatant this past week in their criticism of Trump in the wake of Charlottesville: https://apnews.com/a6f078b98fc14230b269e0edd600c6db/GOP-doubts-and-anxieties-about-Trump-burst-into-the-open Please stay in touch with your own Republican MoC about your expectations of them at this time.
2. Congressman Adam Schiff things the White House needs "more adults in the room," and is now openly questioning the president's competence. https://www.bostonglobe.com/news/politics/2017/08/20/trump-has-serious-issues-that-aren-going-away-schiff-says/Jj4DRNsmuRn0EPsvgFn50O/story.html
3. This evening, at 8pm CT, the president is making a speech promoting his new strategy in Afghanistan. http://www.cnn.com/2017/08/20/politics/james-mattis-donald-trump-afghanistan/index.html
4. Don't forget your Republican party job evaluation.
