Today’s action is specific to the upcoming showdown over funding for the border wall and Trump’s related threat of a government shutdown. This is especially timely, as Speaker Paul Ryan is currently visiting our state and will be holding a town hall on tax ‘reform’ for Boeing employees tomorrow morning in Everett.

1. Read the open letter Governor Jay Inslee has written to Paul Ryan and contact his office to thank him. Call 360-902-4111 or fax him a letter via ResistBot by texting RESIST to 50409.
2. While I rarely recommend that we contact legislators outside of our state and local regions, Paul Ryan has chosen to bring his tax discussion to our turf. Call 202-225-3031 and let Speaker Ryan know that here in Washington, we do not support tax breaks for the wealthiest – and we demand #NotOnePenny for the wall.
3. Contact our Members of Congress to defund Trump’s deportation machine and withhold support for any budget proposals that include tax breaks for the wealthy and funding for the border wall.
