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:

Say “No” to white supremacy. 

On Friday, New Zealand authorities arrested the alleged perpetrator of the bombings that killed 50 people as they were were worshipping in mosques. The suspect had written a 74-page manifesto in which he described Trump as “a symbol of renewed white identity and common purpose”. In response Trump made a statement in which he sent “warm sympathy” to the people of New Zealand, but failed to condemn white supremacy and Islamophobia as other world leaders are doing. Then he doubled down on his statement by denying that white supremacy is a growing problem despite evidence from the Southern Poverty Law Center to the contrary. Trump’s responses are reminiscent of his statement following the white supremicist, neo-Nazi violence in Charlottesville saying there were “very fine people” on both sides.

Insist that Congressman Rob Wittman (202-225-4261 or 804-730-6595 or (https://wittman.house.gov/contact/) issue a statement taking issue with Trump’s remarks. Trump’s support for white supremacy is emboldening those who would commit violence for this cause, making the world a less safe place.

Action 2:

Support Dreamers.

The Dream and Promise Act of 2019 provides protection for immigrants who came to this country as children and for immigrants who came in response to war or natural disasters in their home countries from being deported. This bill will come before the House of Representatives in the near future.

Congressman Wittman (202-225-4261 or 804-730-6595 or (https://wittman.house.gov/contact/) has expressed support for Dreamers in the past. Encourage him to vote for this bill.

Action 3:

Get a cool sticker.

Last Friday young people around the globe walked out of their classrooms to demand bold action against climate change. To show support for their cause, MoveOn is giving away “Earth Can’t Wait” stickers. Get yours at http://rvdr.me/ecwf.
