Impeachment

Since February 2019, I have been actively promoting the impeachment of Donald Trump as our 45th president, as well as actively promoting the impeachment or removal of many of his appointees.

Over the last 8 months, I have:

  • worn a home-made badge saying “Impeach”
  • written “Impeachment” on public chalkboards
  • written a letter-to-the-editor to my local newspaper (Evanston Roundtable, published in May)
  • participated in national grassroots coalition calls (By the People)
  • participated in numerous Impeachment University webinars (March for Truth)
  • written numerous blogs on impeachment
  • contacted my Congresswoman Jan Schakowsky numerous times — phone, note delivered to her office, email, Twitter — to encourage her to keep supporting impeachment and to support a comprehensive list of Articles of Impeachment
  • Tweeted & retweeted frequently the latest impeachment news, opportunities for involvement, etc.
