Our best chance to stop police violence

Good news! Last month, I asked you to tell your Assembly members to support police reform in California. Now, two police reform bills have passed and are on Governor Brown’s desk awaiting his signature. AB 3131 limits police militarization, and SB 1421 would open police misconduct records to the public. Our governor has just one week to sign these bills, and you can help make that happen.

Stand with communities of color who have joined the ACLU and Indivisible to sponsor this critical legislation.


ONE THING YOU CAN DO RIGHT NOW


Call Jerry Brown at 1-833-522-8923 and tell him to sign AB 3131 and SB 1421 into law. You can say Police accountability is crucial to stop violence against Californians of color and protect all of our communities.

Use Resistbot if you prefer.


JUST SIX WEEKS TO TAKE BACK CONGRESS!


We’re ramping up our get-out-the-vote efforts from now through election day. That means we’re temporarily ramping down our MoC office visits. Sign up to canvass or phone bank instead!

Prevent Trump from caging kids indefinitely

Some 500 children remain in immigrant detention centers, separated from their parents. The Trump administration’s response to this humanitarian crisis of its own making is to try to change the rules so that it can keep kids in jail indefinitely.

Our Congresswoman, Nancy Pelosi, has been outspoken in her condemnation of these heartless practices. Unfortunately, she has no input on the rules process. Fortunately, we do.


ONE THING YOU CAN DO RIGHT NOW


The proposed rule change is here. Click the COMMENT NOW button to make your voice heard. Here’s a template, or you can browse the comments others have left.

Extra credit: Call Congresswoman Pelosi and thank her for fighting family separation.

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.

Can’t make it on Sunday? Canvass with us in Tracy on the 15th (I’ll drive you there myself!), or join one of Swing Left’s get-out-the-vote actions in 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.
