TrumpCare Vote Delayed – Action is needed NOW

The first draft of the Senate “Healthcare” Bill has been released and it is as bad (if not worse) than people feared. So bad that the Senate vote was delayed until after the July 4th recess. Your action during this recess is critical while the Senate republicans are working out a strategy to pass the bill when they return.

Indivisible has come out with some fantastic “Explainers” about the biggest problems with this bill. Please click on the following topics to learn more. This is GREAT information to use in discussions with friends and family, to help in expressing concerns about the bill to your legislators, or to use in writing a Letter to the Editor or a statement to be read at a town hall meeting. Please check out this excellent information.

Wed., May 31 – Community Forum on The Rise of Extremism: 7:00 – 8:30 PM

Dr. Karl Kuhn will join us to speak on the issue of the Rise of Extremism in America. The presentation will look at the rise of extremism in many different aspects of American life, and how it often results from social, political, economic, and psychological factors more so than strictly religious motivations. He will address the issue of Islamic Extremism – Fact and Fiction in his presentation as well.

Please join us for this very informative forum, which will allow us to explore the why rather than just touching on the what. As always, this forum is free and open to the public – please invite your friends and family members!
