Something has to Happen
President Trump’s incitement of mob violence desecrated our nation’s Capitol, killed five people, and threatened the lives of Congress and public servants. His betrayal must not be met with silence or inaction.
He must resign this week, or face impeachment and a Senate trial.

We have spent days watching these horrific events. Take 5 minutes, right now, to stand up to this shameful abuse of the Presidency.
Action: Call each of our members of congress to let them hear your voice on Monday!

Congress Must Investigate the Role of Law Enforcement in the Attempted Coup and Strengthen Protections Against Domestic Terrorists
As the events of January 6 come into clearer view, it is becoming apparent that some law enforcement officers enabled or participated in the attempted coup. It is becoming equally apparent that as a nation, we remain unprepared to confront white supremacists and fascists, because we still don’t take domestic terrorism seriously.
Our progressive agenda is at risk as long as these anti-democratic forces are allowed to sow chaos and violence and as long as some members of the law enforcement community abet, or worse, enable their actions.
Action: Tell our MOCs that you expect Congress to act now to quell this elemental threat to our nation. We must tell them that this is an urgent issue, along with impeachment and along with beginning to repair the damage that four years of Trump have caused.
Contact information for our MOCs (Senators Murray and Cantwell and Representative Strickland) is on the handy OI webpage Our Representatives that lists our federal, state and local government officials.
Script: My name is ___________ and I am a member of Olympia Indivisible. As I watched the attempted coup by pro-Trump forces on January 6, I was both frightened and angered. Angered because our nation still does not take domestic terrorism by white supremacists seriously, while we still routinely overreact to peaceful protests by blacks and others.
I am frightened because the insurrectionists nearly succeeded, and frightened for your safety and for the safety of other public servants. I am angered and frightened to learn that some elements of law enforcement clearly aided and abetted these crimes.
Congress must make it one of their highest priorities, along with impeaching Trump, confirming Biden’s cabinet members, and repairing the damage after four years of Trump, to investigate two things. One is the role that some elements in law enforcement played in the insurrection. The other is the nature of these domestic terrorists, and in response to their findings, Congress must strengthen the definition of and penalties for domestic terrorism.
I am glad to know that you and your staff are safe and unharmed, I appreciate your collective courage in facing up to Trump’s mob and continuing to do your jobs to keep democracy functioning.
Thank you for your service!
