Weekly Meeting Actions – August 27th

Indivisible Guide Call to Action: Defend DACA!

Trump intends to undo DACA, the Obama initiative that protected people under 18 who were brought to the US by undocumented immigrants. Protecting them would require new legislation by Congress.

  • Contact Senators and tell them to co-sponsor the bipartisan “DREAM Act” (S. 1615)
  • Contact Reps and tell them to co-sponsor American Hope Act (H.R. 3591), give those with DACA and others who arrived in the United States as children a path to permanent legal status and eventual citizenship.

Protecting the 2018 elections from Russian Hackers

  • Russians succeeded in compromising more than 20 state systems.
  • Fewer than 12 states showed evidence of attempts to delete or alter voter-roll info.
  • Fewer than 12 showed evidence of attempts to download voter-roll info.
  • But even if it’s only 3 or 4 states, that’s enough to undermine public trust in the election process and outcome.
