Tell our members of Congress (MoCs) to protect Mueller now!
Trump continues to threaten the Mueller investigation as it moves closer to him each day. A bi-partisan bill to protect Mueller was approved by the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee, but Mitch McConnell has said he will not allow the bill to be heard by the full Senate. Democrats in the Senate are working on a “Plan B” to protect the investigation. We need to tell our members of Congress (MoCs) that we want legislation now to stop Trump from firing Mueller!

SCRIPT: My name is XXX and my address and zip code is XXX. I am a proud member of Palm Beach Indivisibles. I demand that Congress stop Trump from firing Mueller and take action now to protect the Mueller investigation. I support the Special Counsel Independence and Integrity Act. This law should be allowed to be brought to a vote. At a minimum, we demand laws to preserve Mueller’s evidence and reports if the special counsel is fired.
In addition, you should have a personal plan to act if Trump moves causes Mueller to be fired. MoveOn has established a registry of locations in Florida and throughout the U.S. that can serve as the sites of peaceful protests, as well as guidelines for such protests. Find an action near you, clicking on the link for more information (keeping in mind locations may change).
We note that a decision to join in any protest has its own risks, including personal safety issues, the possibility of arrest, conviction and related loss of voting rights, and the chance that violence arising for any reason may hurt the legitimacy of the overall “resistance” effort. Any decision to participate in a protest event is solely up to each individual. PBIn leadership wants to emphasize our belief that we must continue to pursue sustained actions that transcend any specific event, including by communicating with our elected officials and participating in the electoral process in every possible way, with the ultimate goal of flipping Florida in 2018 in favor of progressive candidates.
Posting our standard disclaimer regarding the MoveOn link:
Palm Beach Indivisibles ("PBIN") is providing information about this event solely as a community service. PBIn is not sponsoring or organizing this event, and not encouraging anyone to attend, as this is a personal decision.
There are no steps that any person can take to completely guarantee safety during a street action involving a crowd of people. While one may be able to limit some risk through proper preparation and vigilance, no amount of preparation or vigilance can ever completely guarantee safety.
Please exercise your own discretion and use good sense in making your decision to participate and engage in any event.
