Weekly Action Alerts- 2.26

This week, you'll be standing up for immigrants and our LGBTQ friends, and amping up to participate in "A Day Without A Woman".

CALL YOU SHERIFF TO STOP TRUMP'S ANTI-IMMIGRATION POLICIES: Last week, the Trump administration threw out restrictions that prevented the deportation of law-abiding undocumented immigrants. Then the Department of Homeland Security called for the tripling of ICE agents to begin the removal of almost all undocumented immigrants, and ICE raids have been taken to new level, with raids being conducted on church shelters and courthouses. 

Sheriffs are elected officials, which mean they work for you. Give yours a call and demand that he/she refuses to work on behalf of Trump's inhumane immigration policies.

1. Find your Sheriffs contact information here.
2. Call them using this script.

PARTICIPATE IN "A DAY WITHOUT A WOMAN: On International Women's Day, March 8th, women and our allies are standing up for women through a one-day demonstration of economic solidarity, organized by Women's March. Here is how you can participate. 

1. Women should take the day off from work!
2. Avoid doing shopping on any kind- with the exception of supporting small businesses run by women.
3. Wear red in solidarity with A Day Without A Woman.

TELL CONGRESS TO STOP THE FEDERAL ABORTION BAN: Trump has plans for an all-out-war on women. One of Trump’s first acts as president was to restrict access to abortion, and now a bill that will outlaw abortion nationwide is moving through Congress. 

Sign this petition, calling on Congress to stand with women and block the Federal Abortion Ban. 

STAND UP FOR THE LGBTQ COMMUNITY: Donald Trump and Ted Cruz may butt heads on some issues, but they certainly find their common ground when it comes to discriminating against the LGBTQ people under the guise of religious freedom. Senator Cruz is planning on introducing the First Amendment Defense Act (FADA), which basically makes it legal to discriminate against LGBTQ people, and Trump has said that he will sign it. 

Take steps to keep this from happening by signing this petition
