One of the classiest Presidential couples we’ve ever had, both in and out of office. They continue to live their values.

ACTIONS
 

Kill the filibuster — still Job #1.
We get rid of this “Jim Crow relic” or American democracy dies. Doubt it? Check out this explainer from the Brennan Center.

If you’ve already reached out, do it again! It is impossible to make too much noise about this.

  • Call or email President Biden
    (Ph: 202-456-1111; Email)
    Tell him that eliminating the filibuster to save democracy is a high priority for you.
  • Call or email our Senators
    Peters (Ph: 202-224-6221; Email) and
    Stabenow (Ph:202-224-4822; Email)
    Tell them first that you value their support for S1, and second that you hope they’ll beat the drum loudly for ditching / revising the filibuster to pass it.

Many Dems in the Eastern part of Washtenaw County (in the 12th Congressional District) might be hazy on the fact that our cherished Rep. Debbie Dingell doesn’t represent the whole county! The Western Washtenaw Dems, in the 7th Congressional District, are mis-represented by Insurrectionist Tim Walberg.
