Team '18

Organizing For '18 is here - be a part of this team.
Organizing for Action
Robert --

The stakes couldn't be higher in 2018.

Our districts aren't fair: All over the country, congressional lines are unfairly drawn by political insiders and politicians interested solely in their own reelection.

Our representatives aren't accountable: Elected officials continue to vote for this administration's dangerous policies, hurting millions of Americans.

And our states will soon be voting on issues that can help people right now, with efforts to expand Medicaid, restore voting rights, and make our communities safer.

On November 6, 2018, we have a once-in-a-decade chance to fight back -- and our work starts right now.

We're launching Organizing For '18 -- a new program that will turn grassroots energy into action between now and Election Day. Join Team '18.

Team '18 will bring together OFA's nationwide network of experienced supporters and volunteers to make a difference all across the country.

We're focused on three goals:
  1. Electing better representatives. Too many Republican representatives have failed us. They've supported this administration's efforts to sabotage Obamacare, approved a massive tax scam that put billionaires over working families, and failed to take meaningful action on gun violence. We'll work to vote them out.
  2. Fighting gerrymandering. Partisan insiders and conservative politicians have rigged districts in their own favor. But after the 2020 census, states will redraw congressional maps -- and 2018's state-level elections will largely determine this process. We're strategically organizing in these races.
  3. Winning key statewide ballot initiatives. In many states this November, voters can make an immediate impact on ballot initiatives -- like Florida's effort to expand voting rights to 1.4 million more residents. We'll help educate voters in these states, and then get out the vote.
All of this is possible in 2018.

But it'll take a dedicated team -- and whether you live in a blue, red, or purple state, one thing is clear: There is work to be done.

We're gearing up for something big. Don't miss a second -- join Team '18 now, and make sure you're plugged in to receive the latest updates:

You have TODAY: Help mom step into power

Act fast! Today is the day to give the Keep Marching book for Mother's Day at a special low price.

Rob,

It's Mother's Day morning!

If you still need to get gifts for the moms in your life, don't worry — we've got you covered.

You have TODAY to give the new Keep Marching book to a mom you love (including yourself!) for Mother's Day — and for today ONLY we were able to cut the price down to $15 (from $25) for a special Mother's Day deal.

The KEEP MARCHING book landed in bookstores just last week and it's getting great reviews — "a perfect primer," "a powerful call to action," "a must-read for new activists."

*Order today, get a special low price, and choose a beautiful (or funny) e-card to announce your gift!

No need to run to the store!

Whew.

Giving this book for Mother's Day is actually a double gift: 100% of the proceeds from the sale of the KEEP MARCHING book support the life-changing work of MomsRising. It's a win-win.

Inside the pages you'll find tips and tactics for creating change, as well as the stories, facts, and the policies we need to break through, including on: fair pay, gun safety, ending sexual assault and mass incarceration, addressing wealth inequality and building the safety net, immigration, as well as paid family/medical leave, childcare, healthcare, and more.

We think it's the best last-minute Mother's Day gift on the planet — but you must order NOW to get the special low price deal!

Thank you for ALL you do for women and families! - Kristin

 

 

P.S. Here's what leaders are saying about the book:

"KEEP MARCHING, by the fierce and fearless Kristin Rowe-Finkbeiner, is a perfect primer for women everywhere who want to take action - whether you're heading to your first town hall meeting or running for office. With wit and clarity, she covers everything from reproductive rights to maternal mortality to mass incarceration, including a powerful and much-needed call to action for white women to step up and do our part in the fight for justice. Keep Marching is not only a how-to manual; it's a celebration of women's power, progress, and potential to change the world."
— Cecile Richards, New York Times bestselling author of Make Trouble and President of Planned Parenthood

"Within every woman lies the power to spark a movement, and KEEP MARCHING provides each of us with the tools and the inspiration we need to unleash our full potential. This extraordinary book can teach an entire generation of women—from every background— how to organize, mobilize, and catalyze a 21st century revolution for true equality."
— Neera Tanden, President, Center for American Progress

"KEEP MARCHING is a powerful call to action for women everywhere—whether you're a seasoned organizer or someone who's getting involved for the first time. As Kristin [states], 'women can lift our nation.' Practical and inspirational guides like this will help us make it happen."
— Anna Galland, Executive Director, MoveOn Civic Action

"KEEP MARCHING is an energizing roadmap, taking our focus from what we're up against [to] a vision that [allows] all women and families to live well. [This book shows] us how by working together and supporting one another, we can truly get there."
— Ai-jen Poo, Director, National Domestic Workers Alliance

"KEEP MARCHING is the book we all need to remind us why the fight against white supremacy and patriarchy will actually set us free. Kristin's enthusiasm jumps through the pages. We are all lucky to have a book like this during this painful moment in America."
— Patrisse Khan-Cullors, New York Times bestselling author of When They Call You a Terrorist and co-founder of #BlackLivesMatter

"[A] must-read for new activists. I highly recommend picking up this hands-on guide full of the concrete information, an intersectional agenda, and a step-by-step action plan for every woman looking to make tangible change in their communities."
— Bob Bland, National Co-President, Women's March on Washington

"KEEP MARCHING is a profound call to action for women seeking to overturn injustice and stand together. Kristin Rowe-Finkbeiner reminds us of what we're really fighting for."
— Leah Greenberg, Co-director, Indivisible

"For anyone wanting to move up the ladder of engagement, to graduate from marches and rallies to strategy and planning, from activist to organizer, use this book as a field guide."
— dream hampton

"Wanna change the world? Read this book. Because in fearless, fierce and clear prose, Kristin Rowe-Finkbeiner has written the necessary, intersectional guide we need today. With kindness, wisdom and thoughtful solidarity, Kristin provides the blueprint for first time activists to seasoned organizers who want to work together to create a more equitable nation."
— Laura Dawn, founding former Cultural Director of MoveOn.org, Founder & Chief Creative, Art Not War

Dear Rob,

I know you're busy. So I appreciate you taking a quick moment for this today. Here's the fast lowdown: My new book, Keep Marching, comes out TODAY in stores across the nation. It celebrates and grows our power together. And 100% of author proceeds go to MomsRising.

It's time to celebrate us. It's time to applaud our power together. It's time to lift other women.

* Can you now take a moment out of your busy schedules to sign a public THANK YOU to all the women who are rising and who keep marching, resisting, and persisting for change?

—> Sign the Thank You card here: https://action.momsrising.org/sign/keep_marching_thank_you/?t=6&akid=10745%2E847037%2Egdb9c5

When you sign on, your thank you will be seen by leaders at all levels from household to U.S. House who are lifting other women. Why?

What's in the book anyway? Inside the pages of Keep Marching you'll find a celebration of our power together, along with the stories, facts, wins, and policy priorities of women across our nation, including: fair pay, gun safety, ending sexual assault and mass incarceration, addressing wealth inequality and building the safety net, immigration, as well as paid family/medical leave, childcare, healthcare, and more. (In other words, it's a proactive policy agenda pushing toward positive change). At the end of each chapter are actionable tips for making change in local communities across our nation that the reader can pick up and use right away to move legislation, votes, and candidates forward.

* Sign on our THANK YOU card to all the women who helped save healthcare for tens of millions of people this year. Twice. To all the women who helped pass local Equal Pay, Paid Family/Medical Leave, and Criminal Justice policies. To all the women who are rising and winning against all odds:

Middle Peninsula Tea Party Reunion, Picnic & Rally!




Greetings Tea Partiers, Republicans, and Patriots! 

It's time to get back together! Our last MPTP meeting occurred just as the Presidential campaign kicked into high gear in 2016 and we got busy with campaigns & election activities. Then, silly us, we thought we could rest awhile! We owned all three chambers of the federal government! How sweet can it be???  Little did we know Hillary's defeat would incite the left to fight like cornered rats!  Then we witnessed people we thought were on our side align with the swamp! Now the swamp is engaged in a battle against the Trump presidency and the people who put him in office. Here on the Middle Peninsula the 'resistance'  is mobilizing to unite liberal forces eager to usher in their socialist agenda, resist and even impeach our President and further thwart our victory.  We can't just let that happen





 Let's rekindle that fire we felt in our hearts and bellies!  Once again Virginia has an over-abundance of conservatives running for an office!  Corey Stewart, E. W. Jackson, and the new face, Delegate Nick Freitas are all in the GOP race to become the candidate to unseat Senator Tim Kaine. Tim Kaine is flush with money but so was Eric Cantor when Patriots who loved liberty more than big government won a decisive victory! Taking back a Senate seat in Virginia will take a small miracle but we must do all we can to make it happen!  Liberty is worth preserving! 

Please come!

SIGNATURE NEEDED to protect SNAP!!

SNAP is under attack in the new Farm Bill!!

Sign our letter to Congress NOW telling them to protect SNAP, our families, and our economy!

Dear Rob,

SNAP (also known as food stamps) is under attack!!

Last week GOP leadership in the U.S. House of Representatives Agriculture Committee introduced a Farm Bill that would increase hunger and hardship by taking away—or cutting—food assistance from many struggling families, including children. [1] This week they are starting debate on the bill.

We have no time to lose! We need YOU to speak out now against this unnecessary and highly harmful proposal.

***SIGN OUR LETTER NOW! Tell the U.S. Congress to protect SNAP and protect our families and economy.

Here's what's happening: Representative Conaway (TX-11), chairman of the House Agriculture Committee, released his Farm Bill proposal last week, which includes sweeping changes to the SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program or food stamps). The unworkable, harmful, unnecessary, and woefully-underfunded proposal takes SNAP benefits away from people 18-59 years old who are not currently employed or participating in training for 20 hours a week. (There are exemptions for parents of children under 6 years old and parents caring for an "incapacitated" child—but that is it!). [2]

Rather than helping anyone keep a job or find a job, this proposal is designed to create massive red tape that will make it harder for millions of people to put food on the table, including parents raising kids, low-wage workers, and people temporarily between jobs. This red tape is designed to produce massive cuts in SNAP funding in order to pay for the giant tax cuts for billionaires and big corporations that were passed in December.

Considering that SNAP helps 1 in 8 Americans across the country afford groceries and that 1 in 4 children live in food insecure households in America, proposals like this are cruel and only lead to more hunger and suffering —and are bad for our economy. [3]

But there is still time to stop this harmful proposal! The U.S. House Agriculture Committee is debating this bill later this week and will be voting on it soon.

**SIGN our letter now telling Congress "Hands off SNAP!" and we'll deliver it to members of the Committee on Wednesday!

The entire premise of these new restrictions— that somehow people who use SNAP are lazy — is dead wrong. Fact: Most adults on SNAP work. More than half of SNAP households with at least one working-age, non-disabled adult work while receiving SNAP — and more than 80 percent work in the year before or after receiving SNAP. [4] Among those who are not working, most report illness or disability, caregiving responsibilities, being recently divorced or escaping an abusive relationship, or going to school as a reason for not working.

In other words, these proposed cuts are a direct attack on women, who do the lion's share of caregiving for children, elderly and family members with disabilities.

This of course all comes on the heels of the $1.9 trillion tax bill passed a few months ago, which gives historic tax cuts to millionaires, billionaires, and mega-corporations, but leaves working families in the dust. [5] There is a direct line between these tax cuts and what Congress is proposing to cut now around SNAP—in order to pay for the tax cuts for the 1% and Wall Street, GOP lawmakers need to find ways to make trillions of dollars in cuts. The health and well-being of our families should not be sacrificed in order to give tax cuts away to President Trump's cronies.

What should we do instead? Instead of taking away grocery money for struggling families to pay for new risky schemes, Congress should focus on policies that actually help create jobs, boost wages, and protect families.

We need our elected leaders to pass policies that lift up our families, not strike them down and punish them when they are at their most vulnerable.

**Sign our letter NOW to protect the nutrition our families and economy need in order to thrive.

These new requirements will hurt working families already struggling to balance work and family and make ends meet—and also hurt our economy. Economic analysis shows that there is a high return on investment, in fact, for SNAP because people immediately spend those funds on food in ways that also immediately fuel our economy. Further, requiring documentation of every hour of employment to obtain vital health care, nutrition, and housing assistance creates more red tape headaches for people, especially those who are self-employed, have seasonal jobs, or who are caring from family members and making ends meet through short term informal jobs like babysitting.

There is no evidence that work requirements would even help people get back to work faster—as supporters of this policy falsely claim. Even common sense says that taking food assistance away from struggling households will increase hardship and won't make it easier for the to find work. Also, these ideas of cutting SNAP are not new ideas. These are old, recycled ideas that have failed to work in the past. Washington state and Louisiana have tried it in the past with Medicaid. It didn't work. Rather than getting more people back into the workforce, work requirements led to more paperwork and less people receiving the healthcare coverage they desperately need—including many eligible people losing coverage. [6]

***Sign our letter now telling the U.S. Congress to keep their hands off SNAP, which boosts our families and our economy!

Once you take action, make sure to forward this email to your friends and family and post our action page to Facebook. This bill is moving quickly through Congress so we need to have as many people as possible speaking out against these harmful policies. Help us have our voice echo through the Halls of Congress!

Thank you for continuing to speak out and protect our families' health and nutrition!
