This is it, folks, the week when Trump officially seizes power. If ever there was a time to march in the streets, it is now. Here are some opportunities to do just that. If you prefer to act from the relative safety of your cubicle or underground bunker, make some calls to your reps about the ACA, Betsy DeVos, and Texas’s very own “bathroom bill.”

Wednesday, January 18
This is a great day to call all of your reps about the ACA. Share personal stories. Ask why they want to strip basic healthcare from millions of Texans. We have scripts!
Also call senators about the nomination of Tom Price for HHS Secretary.
And Scott Pruitt for EPA!
“Having Scott Pruitt in charge of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is like putting an arsonist in charge of fighting fires. He is a climate science denier who, as Attorney General for the state of Oklahoma, regularly conspired with the fossil fuel industry to attack EPA protections.
“Nothing less than our children’s health is at stake. Scott Pruitt, whose own bio describes him as ‘a leading advocate against the EPA’s activist agenda’ cannot be trusted to head the EPA, an agency charged with protecting all Americans from threats to their water, air, and health. We strongly urge Senators, who are elected to represent and protect the American people, to stand up for families across the nation and oppose this nomination.”
