FRIDAY LIST FOR 2/3/17

The Friday List is open.  Make comments stating what you have done in the last week to combat Trump and the Republicans, and I will post it before I leave for Paris.

My own list is rather feeble.

Donate money to John Lewis.
tried repeatedly to call Senators Tillis and Burr.  Left a message once with Burr's office, otherwise could not get through.
Blogged obsessively.

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

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

-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

Tried to call my Sens., Schumer and Gillibrand, without success. Did talk to a real person at the office of moderate Republican Rep. John Faso. Told the volunteer I wanted FAso to take a stand against the ban. He said, "Have you seen Rep. Faso's website? He did take a stand this morning." I looked and sure enough. I asked that he express my appreciation and support to Faso. Talked to Red Hook Council of Churches about the ban. To my surprise, the pastors in the group are going to send a letter to the congressional delegation. Got on the agenda for Sunday's annual meeting of my Lutheran church. Will just ask that a group study the issue, as that's the most I can get away with for now, I think. Donated again to ACLU. Hey, a pebble here, a pebble there, and pretty soon you're looking at two pebbles.

4) Attended a Tuscaloosa Democratic Party meeting about voter registration.
