I emailed this to my Senator, whose phone lines were busy.

Dear Senator ,

Please vote against the confirmation of Betsy DeVos and Jeff Sessions. Sessions’ plans to implement the First Amendment Defense Act are unconstitutional (as demonstrated by the lunch counter demonstrations during the Civil Rights movement) and discriminatory. Betsy DeVos is spectacularly unqualified to be responsible for the Department of Education. Education is a collective, social goal and therefore completely unsuited to private sector management practices. People interested in privatizing public education, like DeVos, are simply trying to find ways to enrich themselves at the expense of the public trust and further to entrench patterns of socioeconomic inequality. Please try to convince likely Republican senators to join with in in voting to keep this dangerously incompetent, avaricious woman out of a position of great public power.
