Today we continue to focus on the shared value of equality. Whether it is equal treatment by law enforcement, equal access to services and opportunities, equal application of discrimination law, or equal representation in Congress, this value has defined our struggle to fulfill the American Dream for over 200 years.
As progressive people, I think it is safe to say that one value we hold in common is equality. This principle, so obvious to so many for so long, now needs to be defended in a way that we could hardly imagine just a few years ago.
Courtesy of Jen Hofmann, this week we will bring you a number of actions we can take to remind our representatives that part of working for us is reflecting our values when it comes to making policy, or demanding leadership from the President.
Action: Stand with Americans of Haitian, Salvadoran, and African descent.

Script: Hi. My name is [NAME] and I am calling from [ZIP] to ask [name] to make a public statement opposing the president’s comments regarding Haiti, El Salvador, and African nations. Some of [name’s] constituents are from or descended from these places and would appreciate knowing s/he welcomes them.
Thank you to Jen Hofmann and her weekly list for this week’s CTAs!
