Wow. We’ve gotten A LOT of good feedback that our new program of #5Actions a week coming to you on Mondays is helpful. THANK YOU!
Here are the #5Actions for this week with an important note: You are making a difference! We’ve seen President Trump and many in Congress walk back threats to immediately repeal the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and with it the healthcare coverage of nearly 30 million people. In fact, Trump thought he’d have a quick slam dunk on repealing the ACA and on getting his Cabinet appointed, but instead he's facing massive opposition on every front. And that’s all because people like YOU have been raising your voices. Thank you.
Here are our Top 5 actions for this week:
ACTION: 1.855.440.1800 to tell key U.S. Senators #JustSayNOonPuzder!
2- Urge Congress to Protect the WIC Program! - The Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants & Children — WIC — allows 8 million supermoms and kids to have access to healthy foods, breastfeeding support, nutrition counseling and community referrals each month. Now WIC needs our help! WIC, like many other programs that serve vulnerable populations, is often at risk from harmful federal funding cuts that would impact millions of families. We can’t let that happen.
ACTION: Sign on our letter to Congress urging them to protect the WIC program: http://action.momsrising.org/sign/WIC_signatures/
3- Tell Congress #NoBanNoWall! - Send a mini Statue of Liberty and a strong message to Congress, President Trump, and the media that the Muslim Ban and the wall are NOT okay.
ACTION: Send a mini Statue of Liberty to Trump Tower - http://action.momsrising.org/sign/Immigration_Ban/
Background: In response to President Trump advancing immigration actions that harm families, destroy communities, hurt our economy and national security, and are putting our nation on the verge of a U.S. Constitutional crisis, MomsRising is sending to Trump Tower thousands of mini Statue of Liberties, along with messages from people across the nation about the importance of liberty & justice for ALL (and we do mean ALL!).
