DFO Action Healthcare Committee Drafts and Delivers Letter to Senator Tillis Regarding HR 1628
DFO Action’s Healthcare committee recently drafted a formal letter to Ms. Austen Shearer, Senator Thom Tillis’ Triangle Regional Representative regarding the recent healthcare bill HR 1628. Vickie Miller sent the letter by email to Senator Tillis’ staff about the healthcare bill, and Laurie Fox offered to deliver a hard copy as part of the “Tuesday with Tillis” initiative. This letter was also a follow-up to the meeting Faulkner Fox and Vickie had with Tillis’ staff back in February.
Report from Indivisibles NC Huddle
Vickie Miller attended the Indivisibles NC Huddle in Pittsboro on May 7th. This meeting was attended by 91 people from 55 Indivisibles groups from around the state. The purpose of the meeting was to develop processes on ways to work effectively together on statewide resistance efforts. It was a great meeting and fellowship! Big thanks to Heather Hazelwood and Laurie Anderson for hosting this event.
Join Friday’s Protest Calling for a Special Prosecutor
We are encouraging DFO Action members to attend tomorrow’s protest sponsored by The March For Truth. The firing of Comey – to disrupt the FBI’s investigation of Trump’s ties to Russia – calls us to immediate action. Senators Tillis and Burr are going to be in Raleigh on Friday–talking about foreign policy. Oh the irony! Wear red, white, blue and bring your outside voice! The congressional investigation has stalled in the House and is currently languishing in the Senate under the impedership of Burr. Gather outside the Sheraton beginning at 11:30 am and contine into the evening. A press conference will be held at 4 pm. So come at noon or at 3:30 to catch the biggest waves. Bring your own signs, slogans, ideas and energy!
If you can’t attend the protest, please call Burr, demanding a special prosecutor. Burr is one of the few Republicans so far to criticize the firing of Comey, but also reach out to Tillis and Butterfield as well.
- Butterfield: (202) 225-3101
- Tillis: (202) 224-6342
- Burr: 202-224-3154
