Demand Justice for Jordan Edwards (1).png

TAKE ACTION.

On Thursday, House Republicans rushed a damaging health care bill through; one which was not fully read by some representatives before they voted for it. We are all mad. Indivisible Guide walks you through the process of what happens next with the American Health Care Act. And now that the bill is off to the Senate, call your Senators and make sure they will not make the same mistake their colleagues in the House did.

Let your rep know just how mad you are by calling and demanding a town hall so they can answer to your face why they voted for this bill that would leave 24 million Americans without insurance. 5 Calls has a script for you to demand a town hall during the May recess.

And make sure they know you will not forget in 2018. If you are already in a blue district, find your nearest local red district here and get involved.  Donate to Act Blue’s Democratic Nominee Fund. Every dollar will go to the eventual Democratic nominee in 25 swing districts. You can even allocate which district you’d like your money to go toward.

RECOMMENDED TWEETING.

TAKE CARE.

If you have access to healthcare, schedule your next routine appointments. Make sure you’re up to date on all your screenings and vaccines.

Treat yourself to a massage, an acupuncture appointment, or a visit to the chiropractor.

Add a 10 minute self care exercise activity to your day - something that is fun with no stress - like a mini dance party to our for the times playlist.

Take a yoga class anywhere with this app. Or take some time to meditate.  You can get your “ohm” on right in your home or office.

Has the weather gotten a little warmer where you are too? It's okay to go outside! Take a walk that isn't a protest. Check out one of these wheelchair accessible hikes. Ride your bike! Enjoy the nicer weather and get some vitamin D!

I believe in Liberty for all men: the space to stretch their arms and their souls, the right to breathe and the right to vote, the freedom to choose their friends, enjoy the sunshine, and ride on the railroads, uncursed by color; thinking, dreaming, working as they will in a kingdom of beauty and love.
— W. E. B. Du Bois
