1. Use this website to learn more about all our anti-corruption and anti-government secrecy investigations and lawsuits. Share what you learn and educate your local community…friends, family, co-workers, neighbors. Reach more people by writing a letter to the editor of your local newspaper that focuses on the need for more government transparency, tougher ethics enforcement in Congress, and respect for the rule of law at every level of government.
2. Contact your elected representatives in Congress and ask them to support ethics enforcement, accountability and transparency in both Congress and the Executive Branch. Specifically, call upon your Member of the United States House of Representatives and your United States Senators to support measures that will open up the investigations of allegations of ethics violations in Congress to public scrutiny. Also, urge them to exercise their oversight duties over the Executive Branch on matters including intelligence leaks and the politicization of high-profile investigations conducted by the FBI.
3. Call (202) 456-1414 or write the White House to urge the President to instruct all federal agencies to comply with Judicial Watch’s lawful Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) document requests. Also, investigate public corruption and advocate directly through your own open records requests. Use Judicial Watch’s FOIA Handbook and other resources (https://www.judicialwatch.org/open-records-laws-and-resources) to learn how you can ask your local, state and federal government officials for information about their activities.
4. Call, write or visit your local (town, city or county) police department to ask that they not provide illegal “sanctuary” policies to illegal aliens residing in your area. Ask them if they cooperate with federal immigration authorities (like ICE…the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Service) when they have an illegal alien with a criminal record in custody. Contact your governor and your state legislators and urge them to shut down sanctuary policies in your state.
5. Contact your local and/or state board of elections and ask them if they clean voter rolls between elections as required by federal law. If they don’t, ask them why and ask them when they last did clean the voter rolls. Also ask them if they require voters to present any form of voter ID at the polls on Election Day.
