That’s our Senator!

Did you see Senator Harris grilling SCOTUS nominee Brett Kavanaugh last week? She went after him on abortion as well as the Mueller investigation, exposing his lies, corruption, and unwillingness to prosecute Trump for any crimes he’s committed.

In publicly opposing Kavanaugh, Senator Harris is fighting hard for Democracy. She’s fighting for us. Let’s make sure she keeps it up.


ONE THING YOU CAN DO RIGHT NOW


Call Senator Harris and thank her for opposing Kavanaugh’s nomination and for holding his feet to the fire in these hearings.

Extra credit: Call Senator Feinstein and ask her why she hasn’t committed to vote against Kavanaugh.

Get out the vote: it’s now or never

The hearings on Brett Kavanaugh have revealed exactly how unqualified he is to serve on the Supreme Court. Senator Patrick Leahy showed that Kavanaugh was intimately involved with the theft of files on Bush judicial nominees. A question from Senator Kamala Harris made it clear that he discussed the Mueller investigation with Trump’s personal law firm. We already knew that Kavanaugh is an extremist on executive privilege and against reproductive rights. He is now revealed to be as corrupt and complicit as anyone else in Trump’s circle.

We’ve already been calling Senators Harris and Feinstein to thank them for leading the battle against Kavanaugh. But there’s only so much our senators can do. We don’t have the votes. The only way we can prevent Trump from appointing dishonest, unethical judges is to take back the House and Senate. 


ONE THING YOU CAN DO RIGHT NOW


Phone bank next Sunday and help us elect Democrat Josh Harder in CA District 10.

Your most powerful tool against Trump

Indivisible groups like ours have played a critical role in resisting the Trump agenda, stopping TrumpCare, and building power nationwide. Now, with the 2018 midterms coming up, we’re going on the offensive. Together, we have the power not just to resist, but to win key electoral victories and reshape government. And the stakes have never been higher.

Elections are critical to stopping Trump. The Trump administration didn’t come out of nowhere. Republicans—and conservative Tea Party activists in particular—built power for years by winning elections at all levels of government. From local school boards and state legislatures to Congress and eventually the Oval Office, the Tea Party effectively stopped progressive legislation and got in the driver’s seat to push their hateful policies.

Now, it’s our turn to take back that power, and then hold our leaders accountable for stopping Trump and passing progressive policies. That’s why Stand Up SF is prioritizing voter contact over meetings with our MoCs between now and November. The most crucial thing we can do right now is to get out the Democratic vote.


ONE THING YOU CAN DO RIGHT NOW


Sign up for our phone bank next Sunday to elect Democrat Josh Harder in CA District 10.

Can’t make it on Sunday? Sign up to canvass with us in Tracy on the 15th, or join one of Swing Left’s get-out-the-vote actions in District 10.

What it takes to win

We Indivisibles across the country have played a critical role in resisting the Trump agenda, stopping TrumpCare, and building power nationwide. Now, with the 2018 midterms on the horizon, we’re going on the offensive. Together, we have the power to not just resist, but to reshape our government.

The Indivisible strategy to win in 2018 relies on each and every one of us to make direct contact with voters. That’s why we’ve been asking you to canvass in Tracy every month, and why we’ve started hosting phone banks. The ultimate way to resist the Trump agenda is to vote these fascists out of office, and we need all hands on deck to make it happen.


ONE THING YOU CAN DO RIGHT NOW


Join our phone bank today! This will be a fun afternoon with fellow Stand Up SF members + Democracy action to flip a Senate seat.

Can’t make it today? Sign up to volunteer to talk to voters on the last few days before the election. Study after study shows that the most effective way to get people to vote is by having conversations with them in the four days before Election Day. Be there when it matters.

Use your voice, make a difference

This week, the president called on Attorney General Jeff Sessions to end special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation “right now.” On the face of it, that’s as literal as a case of obstruction of justice gets. Of course, Sarah Huckabee Sanders has already walked the tweet back, saying it was just “his opinion.”

I don’t even know what to tell you. This is no way to run the United States of America.


ONE THING YOU CAN DO RIGHT NOW


Call all three MoCs and urge them to protect the Mueller investigation.

Think your calls don’t make a difference? Think again. Dianne Feinstein’s deputy state director Sean Elsbernd tells us last Thursday was a historic low for calls received by her San Francisco office. There were only 34. If only half the people reading this email made the calls, we could quintuple that number.

Or use Resistbot to send your message. Texts, faxes and emails all go into the same tally, which our MoCs can use to demonstrate grassroots support for protecting Mueller.


MURKOWSKI IN TAHOE: TELL HER NOT TO CONFIRM KAVANAUGH


We met with Sean on Friday. You can read the full action report here, but the big takeaway is:

Alaskan Senator Lisa Murkowski will be Nevada Senator Dean Heller’s guest at the 2018 Lake Tahoe Summit in Sand Harbor State Park, Nevada. This event is open to the public, and a Kavanaugh protest there would impact Murkowski in person.

If you can’t get to Nevada, call Murkowski and Maine Senator Susan Collins anyway. They’re under the impression people aren’t as upset about this as they were about the Affordable Care Act. Let’s show them they are wrong.


STAND UP SF TAKES BACK CONGRESS


We are 100 days out from the 2018 midterm elections. Our power can flip the House (and maybe the Senate) by electing progressive leaders who represent our values, but only if every one of us does our part.

Sign up for Stand Up SF’s very first phone bank on August 5th! Join our members + Democracy action for a fun afternoon to flip a Senate seat.
