Here’s the list =>

1. Tell Congress: Stop funding Trump’s hateful immigration policies!

Your Action Status: NOT YET SIGNED -> Add Your Name

BACKGROUND: Our nation’s budgets are supposed to reflect our values and priorities, and we don’t want another dime of our tax dollars going towards a detention center that jails immigrant children or the construction of a harmful wall! The U.S. Congress must reign in ICE and Customs and Border Patrol and put an end to President Trump’s hateful immigration policies now and they have the power of the purse to do so. ***SIGN OUR LETTER NOW calling on the U.S. Congress to prioritize what our families really need—nutrition, healthcare, education, and disaster assistance programs—in budget negotiations and reject funding for family separation and Trump’s hateful immigration policies.

3. Demand Gun Control! Tell Congress to stand against the influence of white supremacy and the NRA

Your Action Status: NOT YET SIGNED -> Sign Now

BACKGROUND: We are calling on Congress to stand against the influence of white supremacy and the NRA, and finally take on comprehensive gun policy reform! They need to ban assault weapons and high capacity magazines, disarm hate, pass universal background checks, support extreme-risk protection orders, and more. IT’S TRUE: The Second Amendment was in part originally added to the U.S. Constitution to appease southern colonies that feared the “tyranny” of a federal government that could expropriate the armed militias they needed in order to control people who were enslaved. And the National Rifle Association has a well-documented record of employing racist and xenophobic rhetoric and tactics that directly draws on the United States’ shameful history of slavery and racism. White supremacy has been at the root of inaction on gun violence. Speak out now.




4. Speak Out: Babies Need to be with their Moms! 

Your Action Status: NOT YET SIGNED -> Sign Now

BACKGROUND: Every working and breastfeeding mother should be able to experience that feeling of anticipation as they wrap up a hard day’s work and return to their loved ones. No one should carry the uncertainty of not knowing when they’ll see their children again. And yet, mothers like Maria Domingo-Garcia and others that have been separated by ICE from their children while they are still breastfeeding have had that taken away. We know that separating and incarcerating children and families causes tragic, long-term consequences to the health and well-being of children and their families. In spite of that knowledge, the Trump administration continues to push policies that do just that. We demand that the Trump Administration and Congress protect immigrant children and families. Add your name now. 




5. Tell Your U.S. Representative to Cosponsor the Assault Weapons Ban 2019!

Your Action Status: NOT YET TOLD YOUR REPRESENTATIVE -> Tell Your Representative

BACKGROUND: Military-style assault rifles and high-capacity magazines are weapons of war, pure and simple. And, as the recent shootings in Gilroy, El Paso, Dayton, and Odessa again demonstrated, they are the weapons of choice for mass shooters. More than anything, it has been assault weapons and high-capacity magazines that enable the horrific levels of violence. Exercise your power as a constituent and tell your member of Congress to cosponsor the Assault Weapons Ban 2019! The more cosponsors the House bill has, the closer it gets to a vote to move it forward in the legislative process and into law! Add your name!

KICKOFF Fundraiser to Recall FUSD Trustee Terry Slatic

KICKOFF Fundraiser to Recall FUSD Trustee Terry Slatic

Subject: KICKOFF Fundraiser to Recall FUSD Trustee Terry Slatic

You are invited to help the growing Recall Slatic team. My wife and I will be having a fundraiser on Sunday, September 22, 2019 from 4:00 to 6:00 pm. Right now the campaign needs to raise funds to cover a variety of costs. Thanks to some local donors, we have a challenge match of $5,000. Sponsorship levels are also available: Gold $500, Silver $300, Bronze $150. You do not have to be a voter in FUSD Trustee Area #7 (i.e. Bullard High district) to donate to the campaign, or to help get signatures on the recall petition. 

 

WHAT:    An Evening of Food, Music & Wonderful People

WHEN:   Sunday, September 22nd   4-6 pm

WHERE: Home of Howard & Christine Watkins

               1785 W. Dovewood Lane, Fresno 93711

COST:     $50 per person suggested; otherwise, what you can

 

You can donate by credit card directly at http://recallslatic.com/donate-now/ or by check made payable to “Recall Slatic” and mailed to Recall Slatic, 7081 N. Marks Ave. #104, PMB 143, Fresno, CA 93711. You can also donate at the fundraiser.

 

The Recall’s Mission is to ensure the emotional health & physical safety of our Students, Teachers, and Staff of FUSD public schools. This means recalling Terry Slatic as FUSD Area 7 Trustee. His dangerous and highly inappropriate campus conduct led the FUSD Board of Trustees to adopt on a 6-0-1 vote a Resolution Censuring Trustee Slatic. A copy of the Resolution is attached.
