This morning #ICalledMyReps and they wouldn't pick up.

Thom Tillis has several offices in NC.

All of their phones are shut down. There's a "we just help with hurricane Florence stuff! Stay safe!" message & no way to leave a voicemail.

This has nothing to do with Florence. This is a communications shutdown because they *don't want to hear from constituents.*

1. Calling any senators we have on judiciary, and demand they question vigorously.
2. Telling our Senators to vote no.
3. Pushing for state-level protections, a la MA's Nasty Women Act.
4. Getting 5 others to do 1-3.
If you can do a little more and are in driving distance of D.C. - consider joining the protests. Let the Senate know we're watching. To paraphrase @benwikler, the more
eyes, the better:…

Tomorrow, our president is meeting with the man who "ordered an influence campaign…to undermine public faith in the US democratic process, denigrate Secretary Clinton, and harm her electability and potential presidency.” (IC ICA). Everyone must SCREAM at their electeds tomorrow.
“Russia’s intelligence services conducted cyber operations against targets associated with…the election” like the “primary campaigns, think tanks, and lobbying groups they viewed as likely to shape future US policies.” (IC ICA)
If you are repped by Republicans, CALL. If you are repped by Dems, CALL. Here's the number for the Capitol Switchboard that will connect you to your reps: (202) 224-3121. #icalledmyreps
