EVENTS

Tuesdays with Tillis
This week’s theme for Tuesdays with Tillis is “Reject the Coverup.” Tillis has joined the Trump-GOP cartel in covering up Trump’s abuse of power and obstruction of justice. Several GOP Senators had the audacity to say that Trump did commit a crime but that he should not be punished for it. Tillis even voted against hearing witnesses who could have provided first-hand testimony. He needs to be held accountable. Join Tuesdays with Tillis and make some noise. As usual, Tuesdays with Tillis will be outside of Tillis’s Raleigh office on New Bern Avenue starting at 11:30.

Empty Chair Town Hall for Senator Thom Tillis
***Please RSVP, so we can promote the event!!****

Indivisible Triangle Daily Call to Action is sponsoring another empty chair town hall for Thom Tillis. When he was campaigning, Senator Tillis promised that he would hold town halls to meet with his voters and hear our concerns. He hasn’t done that. We’ve repeatedly invited him to our town halls. We’ve emailed, called, faxed and hand-delivered invitations. We’ve even considered a singing telegram. And yet, he never shows up. But ALL the other major candidates HAVE confirmed. Democrats Erica Smith and Cal Cunningham have stated they plan to be in attendance, along with Libertarian Shannon Bray.

While all questions are certainly welcome, the primary theme of this town hall will be healthcare. We’d like you to (1) sign up to attend and (2) come prepared with your questions about Tillis’s views on healthcare.

Event details: Empty Chair Town Hall, Thursday, February 20, 6 PM, Youngsville Community Center, 115 E Main St., Youngsville, NC.

FEDERAL

Impeachment
The final vote on whether or not Trump will be removed from office is scheduled for Wednesday at 4 PM. It’s doubtful that Tillis and Burr will change their minds, but we can make them feel the pain of ignoring their constituents.

Script:
Hello, I am a constituent from zip code ____________ calling to urge Sen. ____________ to vote to remove Trump from office. He has clearly abused his power and sought to obstruct justice by blocking witnesses and documents. It’s clear that he is willing to collude with a foreign power to influence the outcome of the 2020 elections. You need to stand up for democracy and protecting our elections. Trump needs to be removed from office. Thank you.

Stop Trump from Expanding Muslim Ban
[From Muslim Advocates] Meanwhile, Trump publicly confirmed that his administration is working on an expansion of the Muslim Ban. Monday, January 27th is the third anniversary of the first Executive Order implementing the ban. AP, BuzzFeed, CNN and other media outlets have reported that the White House could announce a dramatic expansion of the ban on or around that date. The following is a statement from Muslim Advocates Executive Director Farhana Khera:

“President Trump’s plan to expand the Muslim Ban is a cowardly and reckless attempt to distract the country and sow anti-Muslim hate. The Muslim Ban was wrong in 2017 and it is wrong now.

Tens of thousands of American families are already hurting and separated because of this bigoted and cruel ban. Doubling down on it won’t make any of us safer but it will allow the president to continue using anti-Muslim hate as a political weapon.

Congress must stand up to this naked and cynical bigotry by immediately passing the NO BAN Act, a historic civil rights bill that would end this ban and all religious and nationality bans. The Muslim Ban is a grave insult to our nation’s founding commitments to religious freedom and equal treatment under the law. Congress must do everything possible to end this cruelty right now.”

The list of countries is not yet final and could be changed, but nations under consideration for new restrictions include Belarus, Myanmar (also known as Burma), Eritrea, Kyrgyzstan, Nigeria, Sudan and Tanzania.

Script:
Hello, I am a constituent from ____________ calling to urge Rep./Sen. ____________ to support the NO BAN bill. I am concerned that Trump is planning to expand his Muslim ban to include several new countries. This is bigotry, pure and simple, and doubling down on hate will only serve to break up families and hurt our reputation abroad. It is also a violation of our first amendment protections of religious freedom. Please support the NO BAN bill and stand up to Trump’s attempts to expand the Muslim ban.
