There are plenty of opportunities for action this week!
Make plans to attend these two Denver events:
Thursday, April 27 – Denver Sanctuary Spaces Policy Launch
(Even if you can’t go, Like the event on Facebook to show your support.)
COPA has been working with allies for months on a community Denver Sanctuary Policy and on Thursday, April 27th, it will finally be unveiled. Join in on Thursday April 27th, from 6pm-8pm at the Denver City Parish (1212 Mariposa St) to send Denver city leaders a strong message that our community is tired of messaging about how welcoming the city is when our families are still being picked up by ICE at court.
10:00 am at Civic Center Park, Colfax and Bannock, Denver
Make a call opposing Trump’s budget priorities:
Current budget funding expires on Friday, April 28th at midnight so Congress is under pressure to pass a budget and avoid a government shutdown. This will be the only focus of Congress this week. Make calls to our Members of Congress every day this week.
Threat of Budget Shutdown if Congress does not yield to Trump’s budget priorities
Send the following messages daily, all directly opposed to Trump’s priorities:
Monday, April 24: I do not want my tax dollars to support a $1-billion wall on the Mexican border or on increased border security and deportation.
Tuesday, April 25: I do not support cutting funding for the Environmental Protection Agency or for health care subsidies to low-income people.
Wednesday, April 26: I do not want my tax dollars to support a $30 billion increase in military spending.
Thursday, April 27: I do want my tax dollars to support [INSERT YOUR FAVORITE CAUSE HERE] (research, education, clean energy, Federal statistical agencies that provide data for policy-makers)
Friday, April 28: Donate to candidate Jon Ossoff – he’s got a chance to win in the Georgia run-off on June 20th and you can bet that money will be pouring in for the Republican candidate, Karen Handel.
