Another week, and children still aren’t being reunited with their families. Keep up the pressure on your congresspeople. Also, there’s a shot at not getting a horrific supreme court justice, but it’s going to take ALL 49 Democrat senators and 2 Republican ones. That means even if you’re in a blue state you should be making calls.
Here’s Deb’s experience at a rally. Thank you for going! Miser mom’s experience and suggestions for what to bring to a summer protest. Thank you! Pictures from marches all over the country and world.
Here’s what Fangs and Clause has been doing. Thank you!
Living in a red state as I do, I’d like to encourage people in blue states who want to do more to send some money to our local candidates. Usually liberal election money flows out of states like mine to blue and purple states, but this year we need your money. This year we have a chance to make a change. Swing Left is a good place to start looking, but if you’ve got friends and family in red states, ask them if there are any races you can help out with. Also, I’d like to highlight one of wandering-scientist’s favorites, Postcards to voters. I hate getting phone calls, especially so long before November, but postcards are nice! They’re especially great for reminding people like me of out-of-cycle elections, since not all elections are on November’s voting day. Thank you everybody for working so hard, because more people will suffer if we give up. And keep calling about reuniting those kids with their families. This is a travesty.
Separated toddlers kept in a dark office building with no kitchen and only a few bathrooms for three weeks. Reveal News has been doing some really amazing investigative reporting.

So I guess the answer is to keep shaming evil people in public.
