Tell Cornyn & Cruz to support the bipartisan resolution condemning Trump’s Syria withdrawal

Last week, the House passed a resolution condemning Trump’s abrupt withdrawal of troops from Syria—leading to a human rights catastrophe and potential genocide against the Kurds.

It should be noted that Reps. Roger Williams and John Carter voted against the resolution. Rep. Chip Roy voted “present”—which is perhaps even more cowardly. If you live in TX21, TX25, or TX31 it’s worth giving these guys a call and demanding explanation.

It’s important that this bill also pass the Senate—even though it is largely symbolic, we need to do all we can to apply pressure.

Here’s a script from Celeste Pewter

Join the Austin #SickOfItTX Block Walk

Health care was the top issue for Texas voters in 2018… but state leaders once again failed to expand health coverage in 2019. Indivisible Austin is sick of it. That’s why we’re co-hosting the #SickOfItTX Block Walk for Health Care in Austin on Nov. 9 as part of a statewide weekend of action for health care.

We’ll be asking neighbors three key questions:

  1. Do you have health insurance?
  2. Do your children have health insurance?
  3. What do you do when you get sick?

These conversation starters will help us better understand the needs of our fellow Texans and recruit others to get involved. Then we’ll give our fellow Texans a megaphone so lawmakers will hear them loud and clear.

Go to www.sickofittx.com/events and sign up for the Austin Block Walk.
