  • TALKING POINTS FOR INDICTMENTS
    There is very little that we all can do regarding the growing indictments against the former president, but we can be savvy about how we talk about them.  The NOT Above the Law coalition, an informal group of 200+ organizations which began after the 2016 election and is in support of accountability for those who opposed certifying the 2020 election results, has just released newly updated talking points about Monday night’s indictments. Many very smart people are recommending that this is how we talk about these indictments. Let’s listen to them! Then let’s use DemCast’s brand new GA social media toolkit, which uses the above talking points as its guide, to spread the word. (h/t Chop Wood Carry Water


  • SUPREME COURT CODE OF CONDUCT
    On July 20th, the Senate Judiciary Committee advanced the Supreme Court Ethics, Recusal, and Transparency Act, which would require the Supreme Court to “publish a code of conduct and allow the public to submit ethics complaints.” Since then, the bill has sat in the Senate with no movement, despite even more reporting of undisclosed gifts to Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas coming to lightLet’s remind our MoC that we have not forgotten about this issue; we want the Supreme Court to be held to the same ethical standards as every other federal judge in the United States, and our MoC can do this by passing the Supreme Court Ethics, Recusal, and Transparency Act (S. 359/H.R. 926).

  • OK – STOP THE TAKEOVER OF THE TULSA PUBLIC SCHOOLS
    Embattled and under investigation, Republican State Superintendent Ryan Walters is trying to distract with his troubles by pushing for a state takeover of the Tulsa Public Schools. TPS is the state’s largest school district, has a heavy Latino and African-American student population, and is led by a superintendent who defied his guidance during the height of the pandemic and has backed diversity efforts. Walters, backed by Moms for Liberty, claims the district is “sexualizing and indoctrinating children,” is stifling “religious liberty, and has accused them with zero evidence of taking money from the Chinese Communist Party. The State Board of Education is set to take up TPS’ future at their board meeting on August 24Let’s use this tool from local activists to reach out to board members and encourage them to preserve local control, and make a similar ask to the governor and our legislators.
