In case you have not heard about this on your social media accounts, tonight there will be a Confront Corruption / Demand Democracy candlelight vigil at sundown in cities across America:

From attacks on the rule of law to conflicts of interest, ethics violations and flagrant abuse of government offices for personal gain, the corruption of the American government by the President, his associates and many in his party has reached a new, profound low.

Officials are trading on the power invested in our institutions for personal and financial gain rather than for the welfare of the American people. From attacks on the Russia investigation to ethics scandals in the highest offices in the land, we must reject attempts to shield corruption from political consequences, public scrutiny, and legal accountability.

These issues are on top of years of challenges to the basic health of our democracy: from money in politics to attempts to shape congressional districts to manipulate outcomes and laws written intentionally to exclude voters from participating in our democracy.

Together, we must confront corruption and demand democracy: here are our demands. Join a vigil today!

There is currently a rally in Tempe:

March On Mill To Demand Democracy in Phx/Tempe
Mill Avenue next to Harkins Valley Art Theater
509 S. Mill Avenue, Tempe AZ 85281

And in Flagstaff:

Women’s March: Confront Corruption
Flagstaff City Hall
211 W. Aspen Avenue, Flagstaff, AZ 86001

You can use the website to schedule additional candlelight vigils tonight.

    BREAKING: The Senate voted today to confirm Andrew Oldham to a lifetime appointment on the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals. The Senate ignored his anti-civil rights record and refusal to answer whether #BrownvBoard was correctly decided.
