IMPORTANT: #STOPSESSIONS ACTIONS FROM WMW NATIONAL TEAM
We just participated in an emergency conference call with the national team as well as other state admins from across the country. We are doing a BIG push to prevent Sen. Jeff Sessions from being confirmed as US Attorney General.
1) Share the attached flyer/graphic and get people to make phone calls. Light up the switchboards. Numbers are posted below.
2) If possible, head down/up to Senators Murray and Cantwell’s offices throughout the state and meet up tomorrow from 5-7pm. Even if it’s just a small group of people having a vigil in front of the office. Neither senator is on the judiciary committee, but both of them need to be pressured into voting NO on Sessions should his confirmation make it to the senate floor. As an added bonus, Murray is on the Education committee so we can praise/pressure her on DeVos’ confirmation.
Here are Senator Cantwell’s office locations: Senator Cantwell’s offices
Here are Senator Murray’s office locations: Senator Murray’s offices
NOTE – If you are planning to hold a vigil/group at one of the senators’ offices, please let us know.
3) Sessions had his hands all over the Muslim Ban executive order. Pass this article around: Donald Trump’s Refugee Ban has Attorney General Nominee Jeff Sessions’ Fingerprints- All Over It
