FRIDAY LIST 2

Critton Childers said...
ACLU is prepared for a fight to the SCOTUS.
I just donated on their website. Another small pebble.

Donated to John Lewis fund
Called Senator Burr, asked him to vote against Sessions

DML:  said...
We do need a plan. I recently moved to Alabama. The Democratic Party is in shambles here. Many of the Republicans in my various districts ran unopposed. Republican Robert Aderholt ran unopposed in the 4th congressional district. Republican Alan Harper ran unopposed in the 61st state house district. Republican Gerald Allen had Democratic opposition in the 21st state senate district, but won with 62 percent of the vote. Senator Shelby's reelection was contested by a Democratic marijuana legalization activist; Shelby won with nearly 64 percent of the vote. We are also home to the egregious Jeff Sessions.

There is some effort to make the Democratic Party more competitive here. I went to a Tuscaloosa County Democratic Party meeting yesterday. Some fifty people showed up--a good enthusiastic crowd. They are already registering voters--in part for the upcoming municipal and school board elections, but also for the 2018 midterms, when the entire state legislature will be up. They are building voter databases and working to recruit and train women to run as Democratic candidates. They obviously need to find some good people to run. Now they are either failing to field anyone, or fielding someone laughable. 
Howard said...
The official thing I did was to email Chuck Schumer to congratulate him on finally standing up to the Republicans, to congratulate him that he finally gets it and us
In small and unofficial ways, I oommiserated with a friend from a Muslim country, assuring her we'll fight to make America a country soon enough that will welcome her openly; and I also told off a malicious troll on a psychology today blog that advocating for Trump must be like walking around with a kick me sign on your back in high school.
The small things helped me more than anything, but I imagine and hope they made a small difference
DML said...
Went to a Muslim Travel Ban protest at the White House
Wrote three letters to my Senator about the Ban and the ACA at a neighborhood letter writing party (it was fun!)
Got a neighborhood group together to go to a Our Revolution meeting for our county. Meeting is tomorrow.
Signed a petition on the Travel Ban
Jordan Said
-Donated to the ACLU
-Tried numerous times to call my representative (Todd Young, R-IN) about DeVos, the travel ban; most of them failures to get through.
-Engaged in long and (I think) productive conversations with a conservative, Trump-voting family member who is uneasy about the ban and might be coming around

2) Marched with several hundred other people to ask the president of the University of Alabama to come out forcefully in defense of students affected by the executive order; also signed a letter with some thousand others to that effect. We received a perfunctory response.
