Friday 6/1 Call to Action

1. Children Belong with Their Families
Today, multiple groups will be banding together to demand the Trump administration end the practice of separating children from their families at U.S. borders, and ensure the safety and well-being of all children with no exceptions. To support this movement, call your members of Congress today and thell them to protect children, end intentional family separation and stop human rights abuses in the name of immigration reform. Demand that Congress stop funding the agencies that are infringing on children and their families’ human rights. Use your social media platform and tag your representatives as well.
Here is a toolkit with more information, calling scripts and twitter handles:…/18Di1XrNkn6ogwS-GxKYJOBAS7z…/edit…#
Minnesota’s DFL leaders will be in Rochester this weekend for the state convention. If you will be in the area, you can join a rally today at 4 pm. Learn more here:…/respect-immigrants-rights-protest…/…
2. Wear Orange to End Gun Violence
Everytown and Moms Demand Action are encouraging everyone to wear orange this weekend in solidarity against the relentless gun violence in America. There is more we can do to end gun violence. Join others at the Minnesota Capitol on Saturday to send a message to legislators that the time to act is now. Learn more here:…/wear-orange-2018/11227/signup/…
Call you members of Congress and ask them what actions they plan to take to end gun violence. Inaction on their part means you will vote them out in November.
3. Food Donation Act of 2018
This bill would expand civil and liability protections for the donation of apparently fit grocery products to food banks and people in need. Instead of being thrown away, food that is imperfect but still good to eat can be put to good use. This bipartisan bill seems like one we can all support.
4. Time to Get to Work!
Minnesota’s state conventions are happening this weekend. If you haven’t already, now is a great time to volunteer to help a worthy Minnesota candidate win in November. Rest assured, we all need to pitch in if we want to see positive change happen in our government. Virginia is a great example of this. Just months after a blue wave changed the face of Virginia’ s General Assembly, the VA Senate voted to expand Medicaid for 400,000 Virginians.…/5df5e304-640d-11e8-a768-ed…
