List of DALCC National Officer Nominees (nominations are still open but close at midnight on 1 March 2017)
Thanks for joining our Inauguration Action demanding Congress perform its Constitutional duty to act as an independent check on the Executive Branch. Many of us hold grave concerns about the conflicts of interest that exist between the business interest of the incoming president (and some of his appointees) and the interests of the nation.
We are therefore marking the troubling start of Trump's term by handwriting letters to Congress asking them to sponsor legislation that requires the President of the United States and his Cabinet members to disclose details of all their business dealings and US tax returns and put all business holdings in a blind trust.
In order to help prepare your letter we have drafted some rough bullet points on this grave issue of concern and have prepared two sample letters - one suitable for an adult and one for a child. Letters to Congress from children stand a decent chance of being answered! Encourage yours to write! Find the links to these three documents below.
If you do not know the name of your member of the House of Representatives or your Senators these links will help you find them, and their addresses, using the zip code of your voting address:
Please let us know that you have sent a letter or letters. We will report back on the success of our campaign.

#IdesOfMarch 2017 Campaign - from its Facebook Page
"On March 15th, each of us will mail Donald Trump a postcard that publicly expresses our opposition to him. And we, in vast numbers, from all corners of the world, will overwhelm the man with his unpopularity and failure. We will show the media and the politicians what standing with him — and against us — means. And most importantly, we will bury the White House post office in pink slips, all informing Donnie that he’s fired.
Each of us — every protester from every march, each congress calling citizen, every boycotter, volunteer, donor, and petition signer — if each of us writes even a single postcard and we put them all in the mail on the same day, March 15th, well: you do the math.
No alternative fact or Russian translation will explain away our record-breaking, officially-verifiable, warehouse-filling flood of fury. Hank Aaron currently holds the record for fan mail, having received 900,000 pieces in a year. We’re setting a new record: over a million pieces in a day, with not a single nice thing to say.
So sharpen your wit, unsheathe your writing implements, and see if your sincerest ill-wishes can pierce Donald’s famously thin skin.
Prepare for March 15th, 2017, a day hereafter to be known as#TheIdesOfTrump
Write one postcard. Write a dozen! Take a picture and post it on social media tagged with #TheIdesOfTrump ! Spread the word! Everyone on Earth should let Donnie know how he’s doing. They can’t build a wall high enough to stop the mail.
Then, on March 15th, mail your messages to:
President (for now) Donald J. Trump
The White House
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW
Washington, DC 20500
It might just be enough to make him crack.
