Mon – 8/27: Calls & postcards… Today’s focus – Kavanaugh and hate groups.

(Awesome protester and sign at the Stop Kavanaugh protest rally yesterday.)

Making a fuss makes a difference. Just look what happened in Georgia.

Action #1 – Your latest Kava-naw action

(Note: if you haven’t called your senators about Kavanaugh’s nomination yet, go here, here, here or here for scripts. And if you have called, call again. We need to swamp the call numbers!)

Due to recent revelations that have implicated Trump in federal crime, all ten Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee have called for a postponement of the Kavanaugh hearings that were set to begin on September 4th.  Instead, they are asking Chairman Grassley to hold a special meeting “to discuss a bipartisan, fair, and transparent process for moving forward.”

Contacts
Call: Call the Senate Judiciary Committee at (202) 224-5225. Minimal Script: I’m calling from [zip code] and I want the Senate Judiciary Committee to postpose the Kavanaugh hearing until our president is cleared of committing federal crimes.

Send two postcards:
Send one to Senator Grassley’s office to ask him to postpone the hearing until we know whether or not our president is a criminal.
Mailing address: 135 Hart Senate Office Building Washington, D.C. 20510

Send another to:
The Senate Judiciary Committee.
Dirksen Senate Office Building, Room 224
50 Constitution Ave, NE
Washington, DC 20002

Action #2 – Tell another hotel to stop hosting hate groups.

Back in Sept. of 2017, we asked everyone to call Marriot to ask them to back out of hosting a convention for ACT for America. “ACT for America is the country’s largest anti-Muslim hate group, and they work tirelessly to undermine Muslim communities and their allies. They support a broad racist, anti-Muslim, and White Nationalist agenda—not just the Muslim Ban, but a wall on the US-Mexico border, and the ending of DACA, too.” Marriot’s name is now linked on google searches for “ACT for America” and “conventions”. Not a good look for them.

ACT for America is just continuing our historical tradition of hating and fearing newcomers to America. But Muslims are not newcomers. They’ve been here, a part of our society, for 200 years.

Now Hyatt is hosting a convention for Act for America extremists, incorrectly claiming that anti-discrimination laws require them to host this group. That’s not true. Assuredly, if the American Nazi’s or the KKK were looking for party space, Hyatt would tell them to keep looking. Hyatt obviously didn’t do their research on this organization, so let’s help educate them, or just ask them to cancel this event.
