Senator Angus King: Resist Trump! (Augusta)

February 3 @ 11:30 am - 4:00 pm

Today, at a little before 4 PM, Senator Angus King, Independent of Maine, bowed to Trump’s rampant anti-climate policies and voted to confirm ex-CEO of Exxon Mobile, Rex Tillerson, as Secretary of State.

The confirmation of Tillerson is a disturbing and destructive move, one that deeply threatens the future of climate legislation in the United States and abroad.

Senator King, an independent who reliably caucus’ with the democrats, has betrayed his constituents with this vote to confirm Rex Tillerson. Join Bowdoin students in a trip to Senator King’s office in Augusta to call on him to:

1. REJECT SCOTT PRUITT as head of the EPA
2. REJECT ALL of Trump’s appointees
3. SUPPORT a Democratic filibuster of Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch

DETAILS: We’ll be leaving Bowdoin from the Polar Bear at 11:30AM, and returning at the latest by 4:00PM. We’ll post more details about the action plan tomorrow, but this will be a safe, quick action!
