*** PRIORITY ACTIONS ***
Immigrant rights issues including DACA are now front and center in Congress. Call Warner (703-442-0670) & Kaine (703-361-3192) and tell them we need relief for Dreamers but they should not be used as a bargaining chip. Also let them know we oppose Trump’s Infrastructure scam/corporate giveaway as well as attempts to weaken Medicaid access rights by adding onerous work requirements to recipients. More information on: DACA and infrastructure.

State Legislative Session
At the Indivisible Arlington Membership Meeting on January 14, 2018, 32 participants voted on Priority State Issues for 2018. Now that 2018 Legislative Session is underway, we will be adding state actions needed to this page in the blue box above.
Our mission: (1) pressure the current government to fight the Trump agenda; (2) elect a new progressive government.
As we move from Virginia and Alabama to every district in the country, we have a long, hard fight ahead of us leading up to the 2018 midterm elections. But we’re excited to build on our success in Virginia!
As always, there are several federal issues that need action. Please choose the issues from Indivisible that are most important to you, follow the links to see background information and sample call scripts from Indivisible, and call your Members of Congress!
