Four days after a white nationalist murdered a counter-protester during demonstrations in Charlottesville, Virginia, Congresswoman Martha McSally tepidly tweeted that bigotry has no place in America.
Tucson-based Indivisible Southern Arizona believes McSally can do more. This Tuesday, August 22, the grassroots group with descend on McSally's office demanding concrete actions.
"Words are not enough," said Kristen Randall, lead organizer for Indivisible Southern Arizona. "Congresswoman McSally can, as a committeeperson on the House Homeland Security Committee, hold oversight hearings with the Departments of Justice and Homeland Security to find ways to enforce laws on civil rights, hate crimes and domestic terrorism."
"We cannot allow hatred and violence to spread at either the local or national level," Randall added.
Group members will line Broadway Blvd. in front of McSally's Tucson office starting at 9:00 a.m., while representatives meet with staffers.
Indivisible Southern Arizona consists of more than 3,000 citizens from Arizona congressional districts 1, 2 and 3 who are committed to resisting the radical portions of President Donald Trump's agenda.
The grassroots organization is part of a larger Indivisible movement comprised of more than 4,500 similar groups throughout the country. Local Indivisible chapters pressure their Congressional representatives to reject harmful policies proposed by president Trump.
