One of our followers sent in this quick note this week about an unexpected opportunity to speak up on the issues. This direct, succinct and firm response is a great example of the messaging that can help keep your message in front of your representatives:
“I received an email from a Californian Congressman (not mine so not quite sure how they got my email) advertising tickets to the inauguration. Here is a copy of my response:
Dear Rep./Dr. Bera,
As a woman and a proud American, I would be disgraced to ever show my face in support of the racist, sexist, homophobic, transphobic, and corrupt Trump Administration. I urge you to take a stand against the appointments of Steve Bannon, Susan DeVos, and Rep. Tom Price as well as the openly unconstitutional and hate-filled rhetoric pouring from the President-Elect on a daily basis. Please do not advertise or give away tickets to what will no doubt be a dark cloud on the history of the United States.
K. from California”
