JOIN US MONDAY!
Join neighbors, friends and families on July 22 from 5:30 PM to 9:00 PM at Salvage Station as we call for a shift in our energy system while enjoying arts, music, and stories.
(Please note that Indivisible AVL is co-sponsoring this event in lieu of having our regular monthly meeting.) HELP US SAY THANKSThe budget fight continues, and healthcare for 600,000+ North Carolinians hangs in the balance. There are several legislators in the NC House who are under tremendous pressure to override Gov. Cooper’s budget veto, which would mean losing our chance to finally adopt Medicaid Expansion for NC this year. We need to show we have their backs, so the NC Justice Center is coordinating a rapid-response letter-writing campaign: From all across the state, we will be sending handwritten thank-you notes to these reps.
Can you commit to writing a few thank-you notes this week? Please email email@example.com and include a phone number so we can arrange to get the pre-addressed and stamped cards to you. We will also be having an open card-writing drop-in later in the week, so stay tuned for details. STAY INSPIRED “I am no longer accepting the things I cannot change. I am changing the things I cannot accept.” – Angela Y. Davis MAKE THIS CALL
On Tuesday evening, virtually every Republican representative — including WNC’s own Patrick McHenry and Mark Meadows – voted against a resolution condemning Trump’s virulent, bigoted attacks on four Democratic members of Congress, all of whom are women of color.
H. Res. 489 was a resolution that “strongly condemns President Donald Trump’s racist comments.” The resolution has no legal force but is intended to show Congressional disapproval of his egregious behavior. As a simple resolution, it is voted on in only one chamber. According to GovTrack.us, it “appears to be the first time in history that a President was condemned by a chamber of Congress.”
By refusing to condemn Trump’s attacks on women of color, McHenry and Meadows have made a clear statement about their own moral values. If their votes do not represent you, their constituents, call today and let them know!
Rep. Patrick McHenry (District 10): (202) 225-2576
Rep. Mark Meadows (District 11): (202)-225-6401
