We need our members of Congress and US Senators to take action to end fossil fuel subsidies, including Rep. Vela.
When Congress goes back to work in DC after Labor Day, they will be finalizing the $3.5 trillion national budget. By helping Bernie Sanders and progressives in congress win the battle over the budget, we can make progress to win on issues like Ending Fossil Fuel Subsidies, expanding/strengthening Medicare, boosting education funding, and more.
We are holding a rally outside of Vela's office to demand he supports the full $3.5 trillion dollar budget on Sept 9th from 5:30-6:30pm. Can you join us?
Rally at 5:30pm
Speakers at 6pm
COVID PRECAUTIONS: Masks required, outdoors, social distancing will be instituted.
IF UNABLE TO ATTEND IN PERSON: PLEASE be sure to call Rep. Cuellar's office to pressure him to support Bernie's progressive budget. This is very important as Rep. Cuellar was one of the 9 who tried to stop Bernie's budget once already. We need to keep up the pressure on him. You can learn more about how to call Rep. Cuellar's office / see an example script below:
