(2) Leave a Comment for the National Parks Service
You can do this action from home or work.  From PBS: "The National Park Service is exploring whether to require protest organizers to pay for the cost of providing law enforcement and other support services for demonstrations held in the nation’s capital.The proposed rule also could shrink a significant portion of the sidewalk outside the White House that is accessible to pedestrians, leaving a five-foot wide sliver. The public has until the close of Monday to comment on the proposal."

Phone Banking (On Your Own) For Nationwide Races
The GOP is working hard to suppress voter turnout. Sign up for phone banking with Indivisible National to combat the right-wing efforts. You'll be calling people to get out the vote for candidates including Beto O'Rourke in Texas and Stacey Abrams in Georgia.

If you want to do something local by phone banking for Liuba Grechen Shirley in New York Congressional District 2 -- or you've already been trained by Indivisible UES for this campaign but need a new passcode -- contact Indivisible UES executive committee member Rich Meitin.
