Unhappy with Trump’s destructive agenda? TAKE ACTION NOW!

This new resource from the Hanover Democratic Committee is designed to help citizens take strategic acts that will protect our Democracy.  Watch for weekly action items here on the HDC webpage, in your inbox and on Facebook. 

Action 1:

Keep families together.  

The Trump administration failed to meet a court order to return by last week all the children under age 5 separated from their families under Trump’s ”zero tolerance” immigration policy.  Experts on the ground report that little effort is being made to reunite the older children.  Congressman Rob Wittman says he opposes the separation of families, but he is not one of the 76 co-sponsors of H.R. 6236 Family Unity Rights and Protection Act.  This bill will protect parental rights and speed the reunification of families.  Tell Congressman Wittman (202-225-4261 of 804-730-6595) that you expect him to support this bill.

Action 2:

Oppose Kavanaugh for the Supreme Court.

Trump nominated D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals Judge Brett Kavanaugh to replace Justice Anthony Kennedy on the Supreme Court.  Kavanaugh, if confirmed by the Senate, will likely serve for decades.  It is unclear whether Kavanaugh would uphold a woman’s right to determine her own reproductive health care as established in Roe v Wade, the legality of the Affordable Care Act, including its protections of those with preexisting conditions, and the protections afforded by the Voting Rights Act.  Some of his public statements suggest he believes a sitting president is immune from criminal prosecution and, while he has acknowledged humans’ contribution to climate change, he has consistently voted to restrain the regulatory authority of the Environmental Protection Agency.  Encourage Senator Kaine (202-224-4024 or 804-771-2221) and Senator Warner (202-224-2023 or 804-775-2314) to make public all of Kavanaugh ’s writings and speeches and to use every tactic at their disposal to delay and defeat this nominee.  

Action 3:
