Wow, what a week! Between Trump’s comments on NFL protests, to North Korea, to the teetering fate of healthcare AND now a new travel ban, there is SO MUCH to #RESIST!
We know it is getting overwhelming and exhausting, but there are small things you can do that can make a difference. Take steps to becoming a better ally and fight for racial justice, submit your story to tell our lawmakers about how you or someone you know would be affected by an ACA repeal, and act locally to protect our immigrant neighbors and friends. A good way to do this is by getting involved with the Brazos Interfaith Immigration Network. Join them for an open house October 6 from 4:30-7:30pm at 107 Williamson Drive in Bryan to see how you can become a volunteer. For Facebook event information, see here.
Another good way to resist locally is to support local candidates challenging the status quo and by getting out the vote! Check out these ideas:
1) Come meet Dale Mantey, challenger to Bill Flores, this Thursday at 6:30pm at in Bryan.
2) Become a deputized voter registrar (training TOMORROW!) Call (979) 361-5773 to reserve your spot.
3) Register new voters at our voting rights workshop October 8th at 1pm at the Brazos Valley African American Museum. (For Facebook event, see here) We also need people to pass out flyers for this event at local churches and in the neighborhood surrounding the museum, so if you can help, contact us ASAP!
Last but not least, join Indivisible BCS this Friday at 5:30pm at the World of Beer in College Station for a meeting/happy hour! This will be a casual way to reconnect after a hectic summer.
We hope to see you all on Friday! Please feel free to email with comments and questions (or with offers to volunteer!) at any time.
