Brian Sims Wants You To Protest With Him – Plus Trump Road Closures

Brian Sims Wants You To Protest With Him (plus chip in to help his cause) – Plus Trump Road Closures on Thursday

Sims

Friend–

 

This week, President Trump and the Republican Party Leadership are meeting in Philadelphia to plan their year. If the last three days are any indication, they are planning to systematically destroy so much that we’ve fought for in our lifetimes. Already, Trump and his Republican allies have issued statements and executive orders to roll back environmental protections, cut funding for Planned Parenthood, and dismantle the Affordable Care Act. We cannot let this stand.
I had the honor of marching with many of you over the weekend as we gave birth to the progressive resistance of these backward policies. I’m asking all of you who can to join me tomorrow as we take the next step in our movement to protect equal rights, healthcare, and our collective values. 
Together, we shall overcome.
In solidarity,

 

Rep. Brian Sims

PS. Please consider chipping in $5, $10, $20 or whatever you can to support me.
