  • I haven't been as up in the news as I usually am because of the holidays, so I'll most likely do whatever Daily Action suggests for me today. Easy peasy. Addendum: today's Daily Action was a petition to ask Congress to enact the Congressional Review Act to protect net neutrality. I called Ted Cruz, but John Cornyn's voicemail was full (nothing new), so I faxed him and my House Rep using FaxZero (Senate, House) because I just on't feel like talking to my Rep's office today. 
  • Postcards to Representatives about Congressional Review Act/net neutrality
  • $5 donation to my candidate's 2018 Senate campaign. One of my text volunteer sisters contacted me yesterday about a possible donation. It's always fun to text back, HEY! I'm a volunteer, too! I'm just glad I remembered to go back and follow through. It was a super small amount, but it's what I can do at this moment, post-holiday, and every cent counts.

  • Signed up to join O'Rourke's campaign in the following capacities: social media, calls, text messages, knocking on doors, etc. 
  • The Beto for Texas team already got back to me, so I've filled out specific forms to be on the texting and data entry teams. I'm also considering hosting a canvass, but I want to get in touch with my local Texas Democrats and Indivisible chapters to see if anyone expresses interest in joining since this plays on one of my biggest anxieties.
