Tools for April Recess:  Contact your Member of Congress.  Attend a Town Hall.  Show up to their office.  Ask questions about where they stand.  Let them know the issues that matter to you most.  Take photos.  Share your stories.

Congress is on its way home for a two-week recess. Your representatives need to hear your opinions on important matters such as Syria, the environment, health care, the Russia investigation, immigration, the budget and other vital topics.  Find a town hall in your area or visit the offices of Representative Scott Tipton, Senator Cory Gardner and Senator Michael Bennet to let them know how you feel on the issues that are important to you.  If you can't be there in person, call them.  The importance of your representatives hearing from you personally cannot be overstated.

Use these TOOL KITS below to help you prepare:

The Indivisible Guide has created sample questions to use as a guide in preparation for town hall meetings.

MoveOn.org has created tools for the recess that include everything from media resources to training guides to general materials and de-escalation tips.

The Progress Report put together this tool kit as a reference for questions at town halls or on the phone.

Monday's D3 Daily Action: Save Alaska's Wildlife!

CALL Senator Michael Bennet and Senator Cory Gardner to urge them to oppose SJ Resolution 18. The vote may happen TODAY so call ASAP! 

This bill promotes inhumane, unsustainable, and unsporting practices to kill wildlife by overturning a federal rule that was created to stop some of the most horrific hunting practices imaginable, including killing wolf and coyote pups in their dens, killing hibernating mother bears and cubs, using airplanes to scout grizzly bears for trophy hunters to shoot on land, and trapping grizzly and black bears with steel-jawed leg hold traps and snares. This egregious program clearly violates the wildlife diversity conservation mandates for the National Wildlife Refuge System, and contradicts both the Alaska National Interest Lands Conservation Act and the National Wildlife Refuge System Improvement Act.

This Resolution is endorsed by the NRA, Safari Club International and other trophy hunting lobbyists, because it will allow big game hunters to kill the majestic animals of Alaska’s National Wildlife Refuges—publicly owned land paid for at taxpayer expense.

It should be noted that Representative Scott Tipton voted for this bill in the House so you could also give him a call to let him know what you think about that!
