Have you heard about the passionate crowds filling town hall meetings across the country this week? Maybe you were one of them. If so, send us your story!
More than 1,000 people showed up to Chaffetz’s town hall in Cottonwood Heights, a Salt Lake City suburb and created such a stir the national media picked up the story.
In Michigan, a People’s Campaign member visited Rep. Dave Trott’s office only to be turned away and told by local police that they were trespassing after requesting a meeting. “It’s illegal to go visit your congressperson now?” they wrote in a Facebook live post that has gone viral. Refusing to back down, they held their own town hall. When Rep. Trott refused to show, they put a live chicken at the front of the room to symbolize his unwillingness to participate in the democratic process.
In upstate New York, Congressman John Faso held a meeting with business leaders on Tuesday but has refused to meet with his own constituents. Refusing to take “no” for an answer, they showed up at a fundraiser he held Wednesday to demand answers. Today, our member organization Citizen Action New York will pack the auditorium of a local elementary school with 600 people for a “town hall” style event. Faso is still hiding, but that’s not stopping his constituents from charting a plan forward for their community.
What if we moms visited local town halls all across the country?
No matter what your political party, it is TIME that they hear from us!
