FEDERAL

Heading toward a Constitutional Crisis Congress has made demands and issued subpoenas and the Trump administration has defied them. Here is a great article that details everything that is happening.

Call Ted Yoho at (352) 505-0838 or (202) 225-5744 and remind him of his own words: “Part of my job, as a representative of my district, is to give the people a voice and to hold our president accountable; regardless of party.”

Indivisible National, surely inspired by us, has begun to put together a weekly newsletter focused on federal activity and actions that we can take. Visit their website here and fill out the Join the Movement box to get the email each week.

And don’t forget to take the We Are Indivisible 2020 Pledge here.

Have a great week!
