Flipping the house in 2018 starts now! If you're in NYC, join us on Tuesday, May 2nd from 6:00 - 7:30 P.M. to help turn Big Sky Blue!
We are gathering in solidarity and support of Democrat Rob Quist's campaign to fill Montana's lone congressional seat in the upcoming May 25th special election! We hope you can donate at least $50 to Rob Quist's campaign to join us. (http://robquist.org/). Bring your donation receipt, it will be your entrance ticket. If you are unable to give before the event, we will have devices on site where you can give to the campaign directly.
We will have wine and some light snacks, and additional information about Rob Quist.
Please pass along the event information to your friends and family.
If you can't attend, we’d love for you to donate to the campaign through Quist's website (and encourage your friends and family to as well).

Day 94: Finish the Job In Georgia
Day 92: March for Science on April 22!
Please call your U.S. Representative and both U.S. Senators (202) 224-3121 to express your opposition to the Trump administration's short-term budget request for Fiscal Year 2017, which artificially insists on $33 billion in new defense and border spending and $18 billion worth of spending cuts elsewhere to prevent the federal government from shutting down on April 29.
Day 90: #ProtectOurCare
People who value science have remained silent for far too long in the face of policies that ignore scientific evidence and endanger both human life and the future of our world. New policies threaten to further restrict scientists’ ability to research and communicate their findings. We face a possible future where people not only ignore scientific evidence, but seek to eliminate it entirely. Staying silent is a luxury that we can no longer afford. We must stand together and support science.
Marches are taking place across the globe. Find one near you here: www.marchforscience.com
Day 89: #FreeMaribel
Wednesday, April 19 is a day of action to Protect Our Care. This week, Trump threatened to withhold critical funding that makes health care more affordable for millions of people unless Democrats came to the table to repeal the Affordable Care Act. The last time the Republicans tried to do this, millions of Americans stood up to say No. We must continue to put the pressure on our members of Congress (call them at (202) 224-3121) to reject repeal and put the health of millions above partisan politics.

Day 87: Fight the Erasure of LGBT Elders
The Trump Administration wants you to believe that its ramped-up immigration enforcement policy exclusively targets criminals. Time and time again, that’s been proven untrue. Take the latest case of Maribel Trujillo, a law-abiding immigrant mother of four U.S. citizen children that’s scheduled to be deported to Mexico next week. Concerned? Call @DHSgov @ 202-282-8203 & ask them to #FreeMaribel!
The National Survey of Older Americans Act Participants is used to determine what services will be provided to older Americans in need. f Trump gets his way, the survey would stop gathering information about LGBT elders. Their needs won't be met if they're not represented. It's a first step in erasing the LGBT community from the American map.
We have less than 30 days to make our voices heard: Send a letter to the Trump administration today by clicking the "start writing" button at https://actionnetwork.org/letters/trump-administration-erasing-lgbt-elders?source=facebook&.
Day 84: #Never Again
Day 83: No changes to U.S. tax code unless Americans see Trump's tax returns!
ALERTING YOU TO TWO IMPORTANT ORGANIZATIONS FOR THE RULE OF LAW IN OUR COUNTRY
The recent appointment of Justice Gorsuch to the Supreme Court has brought focus on a very powerful conservative legal group, The Federalist Society, and a contrasting, newer progressive legal organization, The American Constitution Society.
Many people are unaware of these groups. Today's Action is to learn a bit about them by following the links, perhaps make a contribution or even send a "thank you" email to ACS.
Tell Senators 202-224-3121 not to approve changes in the U.S. tax code unless Trump releases his returns.
