Tomorrow morning [today] your new members of Congress (MoCs) will be sworn into the 116th Congress. It is an enormous honor and responsibility to serve in Congress, one that very few people ever get to experience.
New House members will go to their new offices, settle in, and begin their time in Congress with important votes. They’ll vote to elect the next the Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi. And after they get sworn in, they’ll vote on the rules of the House, which will govern House procedure over the next two years. Then they’ll begin what is their most important job: responding to the needs of our country.
One of the first votes they’ll take will be to end the #TrumpShutdown. The previous Republican-controlled Congress failed to pass a clean continuing resolution and partially shut the government down on December 22.
Meanwhile, Indivisibles all over the country will start their day off at district offices and rallies to welcome their new MoCs and remind them of the blue wave that voted them into power. They’ll also welcome back incumbent MoCs to remind them that we’re ready to fight for progressive policies and hold both Republicans and Democrats accountable when they don’t fight for their constituents.
Tomorrow [today] is a HUGE day. And we’re ready to start 2019 off with a bang.
This blue wave, our movement, doesn’t slow down or give up after elections. We keep going until we’ve done everything possible to fight the Trump agenda, and undo the damage done during the past two years. Now, we’re going to ask you — are you all in to tell the White House, the Senate, and the House that this is #OurHouse?! Good.
Here’s how we kick off 2019, Indivisible style.
1. Show up. Find a day of action event near you on our map. Get your new Whose House, Our House! gear, gather your friends, and tell your MoCs to end the #TrumpShutdown.
2. Don’t have an event near you? Call and tell your MoCs to end the #TrumpShutdown. The Republican-controlled Congress gave into Trump’s tantrum in the final days of 2018, and now it’s time for the new Congress to fix the mess that Trump and the GOP created.
