If you have no idea how to write a letter to your congressional leader, then hopefully this will be the thread to help you. If you're a great writer and have written letters, please feel free to share them here so that those without great writing skills can find a letter to personalize. First example is one written to Mr. Lamborn:

"Dear Congressman Lamborn,
I am writing about your recent statement regarding NPR. You attached an article to your statement from the Daily Signal.... https://twitter.com/RepDLamborn/status/826497788896804868. The Daily Signal is rated as extreme right bias and “does not always source to credible information.” https://mediabiasfactcheck.com/daily-signal/
As if it isn’t appalling enough that my Congressman uses non-credible sources to gather and spread information, it adds salt to the wound that this source was actually used to discredit NPR, which is rated as “Very centrist in reporting. Very factual.” https://mediabiasfactcheck.com/npr/
I support NPR, and I strongly oppose my tax dollars being used to pay the salary of a Congressman who does not use credible sources of information as a basis for his policies.
I have written and called your office several times, and have requested a response every time. I have yet to receive a response. Please respond to this email. I will be stopping in your office soon to AGAIN follow up on the comments section of your website being hidden from your constituents.
-Candi (last name)
Registered voter, (city), CO (zip code)"

Monday is a federal holiday, but take note of the 5 GOP senators who are trying to slow down the ACA repeal and call them on Tuesday.

"For those worried about ACA coverage for themselves and their families.
After hearing about the midnight repeal of the pre-existing conditions clause, I called Senator Warren's office. The woman I spoke to said they are being flooded with calls, as are the offices of Speakers Ryan and McConnell.
Senator Warren's staff member told me what would... help the most would be to call the five Republican senators who have broken away from the GOP to demand a slow down of the repeal. Tell them how much you appreciate their efforts to stop the train wreck and share your story."
Cut and pasted-feel free to share.

**IMPORTANT: Please copy and paste. If you just hit "share", others will not be able to see your post (aside from our mutual friends).**

The Five Republican Senators trying to be sane about this are:
Senator Bob Corker - (202) 224-3344
Senator Lisa Murkowski - (202) 224-6665
Senator Rob Portman - (202) 224-3353
Senator Susan Collins - (202) 224-2523
Senator Bill Cassidy - (202) 224-5824"

Colorado, we need to take the lead on issues like this!! I have noticed how white every meeting is that I go to in El Paso County and it's past time to make this a true party of and for the people, and it HAS to start locally! It starts with community outreach, it starts with letting POC know that we are open and listening. Our fingers have been in our ears for too long now. It's time to open up and start listening and building bridges!!

"Political persuasion doesn't begin with ideas or facts or data. Political persuasion begins with being emotionally correct."
THIS.

THIS THIS THIS THIS THIS. I cannot emphasize the importance of this enough.

...

This is the absolute KEY to making any sort of impact, to making any sort of change in our current political state. We can yell and scream all we want, but without engaging in conversations with those we disagree with and finding those similarities while remaining emotionally correct, we will get no where. We will fix nothing. People will continue to lose rights and discrimination will continue to become more and more acceptable in the eyes of many.

Let's try emotional correctness.

Day 6 of Shaun King's Injustice Boycott

(Scroll down for today's actions if you are in a hurry.)

Hello Everybody,

...

Our action today is an important continuation of the #RaiseTheAge action we started yesterday. It is a capacity building action. We intend on showing New York what we're made of, but to do that, we need to help local organizations on the ground have a much larger audience and network.

That's our strength. We are now over 250,000 people strong and counting.

Yesterday, I provided a list of amazing grassroots organizations and leaders who are on the front lines here in New York and asked if some of you all could put a spreadsheet together with all of their Twitter & Facebook handles.

Here are our actions today. Let's show them our love.

1. Follow EVERY group & person on this list on Twitter & Facebook.

Here are two ways you can do that:

Google Doc

PDF

The goal is for us to help each group and person on the list to have at least 10,000 followers & likes. They need to see the love. They are the good people on the ground fighting for the change we wanna see.

Please do this. It's all a part of making our foundation and our network strong over these next 5 weeks, ok?

2. Write the following post on Facebook & Twitter.

Join me. Follow these 120 grassroots leaders fighting to reform the justice system in NY #RaiseTheAge #FirePantaleo

News from Shaun King's boycott, Day 2.
*will get day one up in a few minutes*

(If you are in a hurry, scroll down for the action step.)

...

Today is Day #2 of 43 days in Phase 1 of the Injustice Boycott. Phase 1 ends on King Day of 2017. If you have not yet read our larger plan for the boycott, please see it here.

On each day of Phase 1, we are going to send you at least one simple, but powerful action step you can take to help loosen the lid on the jars of justice in Standing Rock, San Francisco, and New York City.

As you likely know, on July 17th, 2014, the NYPD killed Eric Garner, an unarmed father and grandfather, by applying an illegal chokehold, then ignoring his repeated pleas for relief.

The family of Eric Garner called for Officer Daniel Pantaleo to be prosecuted for this crime, but local prosecutors did not even bring charges. In the wake of that, the City of New York has insulted the Garner family - day in and day out - by refusing to even fire Daniel Pantaleo for what he did. Now two and a half years later, he is still employed by the NYPD.

To be clear, what he did violated NYPD policy. Not only that, but the government coroner declared Eric's death a homicide.

The Garner family is calling on New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio and NYPD Police Commissioner O'Neil to immediately terminate Daniel Pantaleo. No reasonable excuse explains his continued employment. It is an insult to the Garner family and to the taxpayers of New York that his employment has been protected for so long. It is also the perfect illustration for everything that is wrong with issues of injustice in New York City.

The Justice League NYC has joined the Garner family in demanding this simple action. Today, we are joining Justice League NYC and the family of Eric Garner to demand that New York City immediately terminate the employment of Officer Daniel Pantaleo.

Here is how you can join us in this effort. (Please do these actions only. We will step up the pressure day by day.)

Write the following tweet or craft your own with similar information. Be sure to include: @NYCMayor in any tweets you write. Here are examples you can cut and paste:

Example A:

Dear @NYCMayor - I am calling on you to immediately fire NYPD Officer Daniel Pantaleo. It's long overdue. #FirePantaleo #EricGarner

Example B:

Dear @NYCMayor - I am calling on you to fire NYPD Officer Daniel Pantaleo. He killed #EricGarner TWO YEARS AGO. #FirePantaleo

-- Ready, set, go!
