Indivisible KC Week in Action: Missouri, June 18
Nothing highlights the pressing nature of our activism more than the unambiguous immorality of Trump's administration tearing children away from their parents as the people of our nation celebrate fatherhood.
"Hi, my name is [YOUR NAME] and my zip code is [YOUR ZIP]. I’m urging the Representative/Senator to denounce Trump’s family separation policy. This is not a matter of a law, this is a matter of policy implemented by the administration and could be stopped as quickly as it was started. Since the President chooses not to, the Representative/Senator has a moral obligation to use Congress' authority to stop it. #FamiliesBelongTogether"
You can also still use Herd on the Hill to send letters directly to your Senators. Resistbot will also be printing your letters and handing them in in (hopefully gigantic) piles.
While you're at it, take a look at this excellent list of more ways you can help families on the border. This is the time to step up and not be complicit. Families urgently need our help!
And as our hearts go out to families at the border, let us remember families closer to home that are being torn apart for similarly unjust reasons: unpaid fines, misdemeanors and a justice system that favors the wealthy. Let Justice Gatson's work inspire you to action and social justice.
Take action with others! Build energy and connection among like-purposed people. Check our social media frequently for more up-to-date event information.
Ask Blunt to speak up for Children: Senator Blunt has yet to take meaningful action to end family seperation at the border. We'll be meeting with his staff outside his downtown office on Wednesday, June 20 at 10am. This event was intially planned by a novice organizer and it's getting huge! We need help from experienced Blunt office visitors to guide the crowd. If you can help, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
