November 12, 2017 Action Checklist for Americans of Conscience
Action Checklist for Americans of Conscience – Week of November 12, 2017
1. I hope you took some time to revel in the diversity and outcome of last weeks election results. These new, elected officials are what America looks like! These wins are so heartening–and thanks are due to everyone who ran, donated, organized, called, and supported these candidates.
2. It’s been glacially slow watching career Republicans change over the last year–from backing the president (however reluctantly) to actual, official disagreement. We can only turn this ship around together, so I’m relieved to see signs of more conservatives finding their voices and speaking up for accountability, respect, and integrity.
3. For the last three months, we’ve been part of an online activist effort with Indivisbile, Women’s March, and others to spread the word about ACA sign ups. Our group has tweeted (countless times) and shared my graphic on Facebook (almost 1000 times), together reaching well over 100,000 people alone. When sign ups finally opened on Nov 1, healthcare.gov was flooded. In fact, they’ve already surpassed last year’s registration. We did that!
