How to get involved this week

Although there was good news on the health care front on Friday, there's more work to be done. It's vital that we stay engaged and keep the pressure on our elected officials.

Here are a few quick, easy ways to make your voice heard:

Call the House Committee on Intelligence: Committee Chair Devin Nunes has closed the public hearing on the Trump administration's Russia ties. Call the committee's majority staff today at 202-225-4121 or fax 202-225-1991 to demand that the hearing be reopened to the public immediately. If you can't get through, try calling Rep. Nunes directly at 202-225-2523. You can also call Rep. Sensenbrenner (202-225-5101) to ask him to push for the reopening of the hearing and to tell him you want Nunes to recuse himself from the Russian investigation. has a script.

Fight against gerrymandering: Citizen Action of Wisconsin's Day of Action to lobby legislators about fair maps is this Thursday, March 30 in Madison. RSVP here to join them. If you can't make it, fill out this online postcard and Citizen Action will print and deliver it for you on Thursday.

Call our state legislators about education funding: Although Gov. Walker has proposed increasing per-pupil funding, there's talk that our legislators may shrink K-12 funding instead (and voucher students continue to receive more state aid than our public school kids). Rep. Dale Kooyenga (608-266-9180) and Sen. Leah Vukmir (608-266-2512) both sit on the state's Joint Finance Committee; call and ask them to fully fund our public schools. Those in Rep. Rob Hutton's district can reach him at 608-267-9836 (if you're not sure, find your state representative here).

Attend a Sensenbrenner town hall: Our Congressman's flurry of town halls everywhere but Wauwatosa continues this Saturday, April 1, at 1 p.m., at the Greenfield Public Library, 5310 W. Layton Ave.
