It is #resisttrumptuesday

WHEN : Tuesday, 1/31 at noon
WHERE : Federal Building entrance (300 Ala Moana)
WHAT : Visit the offices of Senator Schatz, Senator Hirono, and Rep. Gabbard
REMINDER : Bring your ID

GOALS :
1. We want the two Senators them to vote NO on the nominees (Tillerson, Sessions, DeVos, Price, Pruitt, Pudzer, Mnuchin) and we expect them to demand cloture votes on all of them so that the Senate can debate these nominees and the American public can learn more about them. (Cloture is what the GOP used to gum up Senate action for the last eight years. Now we want Dems to use it.) We will ask where the Senator stands on each of these nominees and if they will vote for cloture.

2. We expect them to exercise all power they have to overturn the EO on the Muslim ban and to demand that Bannon be removed from the Security Council. There is a 6PM event at the US Capitol tomorrow regarding overturning the ban and we expect them to attend. We ask where they stand on these two issues.

3. We tell Tulsi's people that we disapprove of her rogue trip to Syria and her cozying up to Assad - that using the suffering of these families to promote her personal, national agenda is reprehensible and in no way representative of the people of Hawai‘i.
