**SOLIDARITY SUNDAYS DAILY CALL FOR ACTION!***
**Friday December 16th**
Today is the last (business) day to make noise about the Electoral College (EC). Thanks to Laura Beck for the language on several of these actions:
1. DEMAND THE ELECTORS BE BRIEFED ON THE CIA REPORT OUTLINING RUSSIAN INTERFERENCE. Contact the U.S. Attorney General's office at 202-514-2000 (Comment line...press 4)…(When you're done recording your message, press # and then # again to send it!)
"Hello, my name is _______ and I am calling to ask you to demand that the electors be briefed on the CIA report outlining Russian interference with our presidential election prior to the December 19th vote. If that is not possible, the electoral vote should be delayed until a full investigation of Russian interference and Trump’s campaign involvement can be completed and released. Thank you!"
2. Call your Senators about it!
"Hello, my name is [your name] and I want [rep's name] to demand that the electors be debriefed on the CIA report outlining Russian interference with our presidential election prior to the December 19th vote. If that is not possible, the electoral vote should be delayed until a full investigation of Russian interference and Trump’s campaign involvement can be completed and released."
BONUS: If you are feeling up to it, further engage the person you talk to! Ask them what else you can to make sure your rep acts on this! Tell them you know they're officially on break, but this is bigger than a break. It needs to happen before Dec. 19. If you're dealing with a Republican leader who is refusing to take action, it's especially important to be persistent.
3. Watch/listen to Obama's presser today. Before you get your hopes up, though, remember that he holds one at the end of each year, before his annual vacation. That said, the political developments of just this past week are *so* unprecedented, that there's pretty much no way he CAN'T address Russia, the EC, etc.
4. For some insight/background into the EC, check out this show from KQED's Forum this morning. Lots of interesting info.
