Thursday's D3 Indivisible Action

Ten is Better than One! Today, D3 is hosting an Action Event in coordination with ACT Telluride at the Sherbino Theater in Ridgway, Colorado from 2-5pm. Stop by for 10-20 minutes and complete up to Ten Actions!

We'll make it easy for you and your friends to have your voices heard by state and federal representatives. A series of action stations will be provided - from pre-addressed postcards ready to personalize and sign, to scripts for calling state and federal representatives on the spot, to computer stations and emails to send. 


If you are not in the Ridgway area, and would like an action for today, consider calling Representative Scott Tipton to ask him why he blocked a resolution that would have directed the House to request 10 years of Trump's tax returns, for review by the House Ways and Means Committee in a closed session. The Committee would then vote on whether to send the information to the House. Don't we deserve transparency and accountability from our President?

Friday's D3 Indivisible Action

Call the US Justice Department's Comment line at: 202-353-1555 to ask that they reinstate the Title IX guidance clarifying that transgender students are protected from sex discrimination. 

Here is the ACLU Nationwide SCRIPT:

I believe that evoking the guidance shows that the president's promise to protect LGBT rights was just empty rhetoric - and makes President Trump a hypocrite.

Trans youth are extremely vulnerable - subject to some of the highest rates of bullying, harassment, discrimination, and suicide. These students need our support - not further marginalization. Rescinding the Title IX guidance amounts to institutional bullying by the Trump White House. Transgender students deserve better. This administration must do better. 

Barring transgender students from single-sex spaces like restrooms is a violation of those students' rights. Every student deserves the right to an education that is free of discrimination.
