Progress4VA1 Independent PAC 2018-09-19T06:49:20+00:00

Progress4VA1 Independent PAC

Progress4VA1 is an independent expenditure only political action committee (PAC) registered with the Federal Election Commission and Virginia Department of Elections, and affiliated with the Stafford Indivisible Community Action Network (SICAN), a local, grassroots organization energized by volunteer activists from the Stafford, Fredericksburg, Spotsylvania and King George area.

Progress4VA1 shares the vision and values of SICAN and is dedicated to helping improve the lives of Virginia residents by advocating for progressive policies that will make the Rappahannock region a better place to live, work and raise a family.

To achieve our vision we need to elect candidates who advocate for progressive policies that promote a safe and secure environment, economic opportunity, excellent schools, sustainably managed economic growth and development, appropriate infrastructure development, and a culture of mutual respect, responsibility and support. Therefore, Progress4VA1 will support the nomination and election of candidates to federal, Virginia state, and local offices who support these objectives.

From the National Indivisible Team...

Dear Indivisibles,

This is a full-fledged attack on our democracy.

Just moments ago, Trump declared a national emergency to build his vanity wall after signing the funding bill (that passed both the Senate and the House last night) which will lead to even more detention, deportation, and family separations at the border.

Make no mistake -- this is an illegal, anti-democratic power grab rooted in racism. The only emergency at the border is the one created by Trump and the Republicans enabling his temper tantrum. Congress and the people have already rejected Trump’s wall. Going around constitutional separations of power and declaring a fake emergency as a desperate attempt to get his way is an abuse of his executive power.

We will not let Trump get away with this. Trump is setting up a dangerous precedent to justify almost limitless future abuses of presidential power. Abuses that can result in far-reaching harm to us all, especially communities disproportionately at risk.

Take your energy to the streets - On Monday, February 18, we’re joining MoveOn, Win Without War, and CREDO in a mass mobilization to call on Congress to act on Trump’s fake national emergency. We’ve got to let every single member of Congress know that they need to fight back. Here’s how:

Sign up to take action this Monday at act.indivisible.org/signup/reject-fake-emergency/. Join us, MoveOn, Win Without War, CREDO, and more at an event near you to call on Congress to put an end to Trump’s fake national emergency. You can also text “MOBILIZE” to 977-79 to get updates and the national event map when it’s live!

Call your MoCs and tell them to reject Trump’s fake emergency (act.indivisible.org/call/fake-emergency/?source=emailB_20190215). Congress has an obligation to check Executive Branch abuses, and there is a clear path for them to do this. They need to act to protect our democracy by passing a resolution to terminate this phony emergency and protect the people (the majority of which reject Trump’s vanity wall).

Read more on how you can demand Congress launch investigations into this abuse of power (indivisible.org/resource/trump-just-declared-fake-emergency-get-his-way). With their new oversight powers in the House, Democrats should immediately schedule hearings and investigations into Trump’s illegal power grab.
This is the move of an authoritarian, reckless human filled with hate and a stubborn need to fulfill his campaign promise. Trump will not get away with it and our MoCs must uphold the mandate that they accepted the day they were elected into office to fight back and protect our democracy.

Together we’re stronger than Trump’s racist, hateful agenda. We’ve got this. Stay tuned and get ready to take to the streets.

In solidarity,
Indivisible Team

https://t.co/fuguZuCZMQ #VA01 @RobWittman vote of the day (Mar'13): Voted for a bill that mandates work requirements for TANF recipients. So we can put burdensome requirements on the poor but not reasonable regulations on businesses?

#VA01's @RobWittman says "we must first address our [military] readiness crisis"

@POTUS cancels military readiness exercises with S. Korea to appease Kim Jung-Un

Rob does nothing to advocate for continuing these exercises.

Why so #SilentBob?
