This is cutting into writing time so I’m going to make this quick!
Last week I sent an email to the Democratic Party in the county where I live, volunteering for whatever they might need me for. Now, this is the second time I’ve done this, so I’m not actually expecting a response, but today I also sent them an application form to join as a member. I’ll be attending my first monthly meeting next Wednesday and plan to make it a recurring habit. I don’t know why I haven’t received responses to my calls to volunteer. Maybe they have so many volunteers they didn’t need me, or maybe they prefer volunteers who are members, or (and this is what I think most likely) in this rather Red county they don’t actually do a lot. I don’t know. But I’m going to get involved, find out, and do what I can to help elect Democrats in all offices.
I also called my Senators using scripts and info from this page on the I Called My Reps site. We need to do everything we can to block the SCOTUS nomination put forth by Trump. Brett Kavanagh is a threat to Roe v Wade and we need to take this very, very seriously. There’s also info on the above page for what you can do in the meantime, including supporting a Democratic Senate race in your state. This is very important. Not only because of the SCOTUS nom, but for the country as a whole for the next two+ years.
I also secured my absentee ballot for the August primary since I’ll be away from home on the day of the primary. I haven’t filled it out yet because I need to review a few candidates and decide who I’d like to support (Democrats of course, but which one!) I’ll do that tonight after the kiddos are in bed!
And last I shared information on Twitter, Facebook, and here on how to oppose this SCOTUS nomination. It may not seem like much, but if my posts or tweets get even one person to join the fight, then I’m happy with that result.
So find something you can do in the fight against Trump and get involved! Also, I’d love to hear from others what they have been doing to resist! Feel free to respond in the comments.
