Fight the #TrumpTaxScam

Remember how we helped stop the repeal of the healthcare? Well, NOW It’s urgent that we STOP the #TrumpTaxScam. It’s a massive giveaway to the wealthy and corporations, paid for by raising taxes on middle-class families and forcing deep cuts to Medicaid, Medicare and Social Security.

We need all hands on deck NOW. The fight in Congress is already underway, and Republicans want to jam the Trump Tax Scam through by early December. So, our step 1: join us this Thursday (11/2) in calling your Members of Congress and/or by hosting a Calling Party or for our National Call-in Day. You’ll find tools in our first article below.

Make a Difference This Week

No one should expect inhumane conditions in the workplace.

….and right now, airport workers do indeed face unsafe conditions on the tarmac. You can make a difference this Thursday by standing with our local Sky Harbor airport workers in support of safe working conditions.

In fact, we’ll be joining 20,000 people across the country in this National Day of Action on Thursday, (October 19) We urge you to join us in standing with working class people to show our solidarity. Find more details here as well as farther down in this newsletter. You can make a difference, but showing up this Thursday to stand together with middle class workers here in Phoenix and across the country.

Support a Dreamer

It feels like it’s time again to remind ourselves that this “standing up for our most cherished values” is a marathon and not a sprint. Thank you to all of you for adding your voice, your resources – and sometimes your feet, too – to create a tsunami of support for human rights. No matter anyone’s political affiliation, we can come together to stand for our most basic values as inclusive and just people.

As always, we hope you will join us in taking some of the actions we’ve provided here. Thank you for doing what you can. You make a difference.

You Can Make a Difference

Between fires, hurricanes, floods, and looming deportations there seems to be an extraordinary amount of bad news right now. We find hope, as Mr. Rogers used to say, in watching for the helpers. That includes first responders, and it also includes all of us who are doing what we can to stand up for our neighbors and ourselves.

Thank you for everything you are doing to help our neighbors. You are not alone. Together, we are committed to resist the current destructive agenda, and to work for change in 2018. Here are some actions you might join us in this week. See what you can do. Together we DO make a difference.
