It's been another big week. If you're fed up with the epic level of awful coming out of Washington, D.C., we have some concrete and powerful things you can do! Sign up to get free postcards to mail to registered voters who haven't always voted on Election Day (we give you everything you need). You can also sign up to call other voters. And there's still time to call your Senators and urge them to vote NO on the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh. Scroll down to find these important actions and more, in our latest list of top actions from the past week. Make sure to read to the end, as we're sharing links to some great Facebook Live videos too.
Please remember to share this with family and friends, too. Thank you for all you do! On with the list ...

BACKGROUND: We remain deeply troubled by Judge Kavanaugh's judicial record and the credible allegations of sexual violence against him. In addition, he very obviously lied under oath to the Senate Judiciary Committee and we are not persuaded by the incomplete FBI probe, which was unreasonably rushed and constrained. The legitimacy of the U.S. Supreme Court is at stake. Can you make a quick call to tell your U.S. Senators to VOTE NO on Judge Kavanaugh's nomination? Just dial 1-855-976-1895 and we'll connect you.
BACKGROUND: Sign up to get info about how to make Get Out The Vote phone calls to areas that especially need reminders to vote during the last two weeks in October and first week of November. We need you! We need your help! We quite literally need your voice! Just fill out the form on this page to say you’re interested — and we’ll send you everything you need, including: An easy way to make lots of phone calls where you don’t even have to dial each number, a short sample script of what to say, the timeline in which your phone calls need to happen (last two weeks in October and first week of November). If all of us make 20 calls, then we can change our world for the better. So let’s do this! Together, we’re a powerful force!
BACKGROUND: We urgently need donations to help MomsRising volunteers send postcards to infrequent women voters. Your donation will help us print more cards and turn out more women this November. Can you chip in? $5 funds 5 postcards, $50 funds postcards, $100 funds 100 postcards! Please donate today!
BACKGROUND: All of our children deserve the opportunity to succeed, whether they want to be an astronaut, open a restaurant, or play third base. Children are full of possibility and potential. As parents, caregivers and adults, that gives us great hope for this world. Our children will craft and create a bright and beautiful future. Our role is to give our children the building blocks to succeed. The healthy school day is an important place to start. And guess what? Schools need parents more than ever before. At a time when our Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos is trying arm teachers with guns, and schools have more cops than counselors, it's more important than ever before for parents and caregivers to step up and get involved. We can help! We’re thrilled to announce that our brand-new, hot-off-the-presses Parent Power Pack is full of useful information and resources for supporting the healthy school day. Sign up for your free copy!
