Back to School, to Strike for Climate!

There’s a Global Climate Strike planned for Friday, September 20, days before the United Nations Climate Summit in New York City on September 23. The Global Climate Strike invites people of all ages to strike—by refusing to attend work and school—to disrupt the social order and to push our governments to act on the climate emergency we find ourselves in. Imagine the distruption possible when both young and old join forces.

Call DOJ to audit 2016 presidential vote

The Department of Justice is tallying phone calls regarding those who want the 2016 vote audited.

  • Tollfree: 1-800-253-3931 (press 5)
  • DC: 202-353-1555 (leave message)
  • email: voting.section@usdoj.gov

Suggested script: “My name is _____, calling from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. I’m asking for the November 2016 vote to be audited; I sense there’s been voter suppression and interference with the 2016 presidential election. Please issue an injunction until a thorough investigation can take place.”

Even shorter: “My name is ___, calling from City, State. Please add me to the list requesting the investigation of the 2016 presidential election.”

The point is to provide the DOJ with numbers so they can say X number of Americans want an injunction. Calling preferred over email. I just called the 800 number.
