After the horrible white supremacist violence in Charlottesville, and Trump's brinkmanship with North Korea, most are us reeling. Issa of course remains silent. We hope you'll be able to gather with our extended Indivisible family today and throughout the week to show our love and strength. And to help us fight against the GOP's planned tax cuts for the super rich.
Tonight there are candlelight vigils around San Diego, including these in downtown San Diego and Encinitas (or check here to find one near you):
Sunday, August 13, 2017, 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
Cottonwood Creek Park, 95 North Vulcan Avenue, Encinitas
We will stand in unity, rally at the four corners of Hwy 101 and Encinitas blvd then walk with candles along Hwy 101.

Tuesday, August 15, 10:00 a.m.: Weekly Rally at Issa's Vista Office - "Not One Penny"
1800 Thibodo Rd., #310, Vista, CA
August 15th is the official kickoff of the Tax March's "Not One Penny" (in tax cuts for the super rich) campaign. This comes as President Trump and Congress have made tax code changes their top legislative priority. We have t-shirts for the first 100 rally attendees! We will sign a "Not One Penny" letter to Issa and have postcards ready for you to mail. And if you don't have time to make a sign this week, we have Not One Penny signs for you.
In Issa's recent newsletter, he said he has been getting to work on tax reform. Let's show up in numbers to remind Issa that he works for us and we do NOT support tax cuts for the super rich! Bring your signs, your friends, and your energy!
See herefor more details and to RSVP.
Thursday, August 17, 5:00 - 6:00 p.m.: Weekly Encinitas Unity Issa Street Corner Protest

MARK YOUR CALENDARS! Be on the lookout for our possible upcoming Budget Townhall dates: August 21st-27th (pending availability of speakers). Rep. Issa and Sen. Harris have both been formally invited. No word from Issa yet.
Congress is on recess, so our Legislative Team is taking a well deserved break for the month of August. Thanks for all the hard work!
Key Actions for this week:
Call Issa and let him know loud and clear that you do not support the GOP tax cuts for the rich.
Call Issa to ask him to speak out against the terror attack in Charlottesville (and Trump's cowardly statements).
