SolSun Call for Action for Jan. 18th

Wednesday, Jan 18, 2017

So. Much. Going. On! Reminder that we limit our daily actions so as not to overwhelm folks—if we don't include action on an issue it doesn't mean we don't think it's important! Please continue to post #Actions!

1. PRUITT HEARING HAPPENING TODAY. Watch the Climate Change Denier live:…/Watch-live-Scott-Pruitt…/5641484738052/ Then CALL YOUR REPS and ask them to OPPOSE Pruitt OR applaud your Rep if they've taking a stance against.


2. DEVOS CALLS Did you watch the Betsey DeVos hearing?! Whoa. Time for another round of calls (please personalize these calls w/ your own experience/perspectives on education!). FIRST, CALL YOUR OWN REPS and ask that they OPPOSE DeVos (or APPLAUD if they do).


Once you've called YOUR REPS, call others!

Call script: “I am a concerned citizen who is very worried about President-Elect Trump’s nomination of Betsy DeVos to the position of Secretary of Education. Her hearing was appalling, and her inability to answer basic questions about guns, equity, sexual assault and bullying, and her financial conflicts is disturbing to say the least. Ms. DeVos has never attended or worked in public schools and has little background regarding the experiences of public school students and their families. I urge _________ to oppose the proposed nomination of Ms. DeVos and to speak out against it forcefully."


Reps are from Tennessee, North Carolina, Kentucky, Arkansas, South Carolina, Kansas, Wyoming, Georgia, Maine, Illinois, Utah, Louisiana, Washington, Vermont, Minnesota, Rhode Island, Connecticut, Maryland, Colorado, Wisconsin, Massachusetts.
