Actions! 10.7-10.13.2019

The next election is not about our current president. It’s about us.

We see a better country based on the rule of law. We believe in legal and economic equality, and especially in equality of opportunity. This is why we write, call, and show up.

We are not the Democratic Party. We are engaged and concerned individuals who will hold our elected officials accountable for their actions and their inactions. This is why we remember that no one - not even the president - is above the law.

At this point - Plan to vote Blue, No Matter Who. Any Democratic Party Presidential Candidate who makes it through the primaries and caucuses will be better for the country. Because the red Party has no conscience and no sense of duty to our country.

We will be writing postcards to people who can’t be reached in any other way (i.e. texting and phone banks). They are people who are not registered OR are disenfranchised voters who have been removed from the voter rolls for some reason (Republican dirty work) with many not even knowing that they have been removed.

Job goals or objectives may change weekly.

Please bring 20 stamped postcards. You can get postcards at your nearby Post office or cute ones from Copperfields and/or Village Art Supply.

SCRIPS
This week, we’re asking you to keep calling your Representatives so that they know impeachment is actively supported and that we want a fair trial in the Senate.

If you have friends and relatives with Republican Senators, now is the time to ask them to call and to attend town halls to ask: will the Senator denounce Trump’s betrayal of America and support impeachment?

We have calls to make. Please join us this week in making calls to our Senators and Representative beginning on Monday, using our scripts below. Hate the phone? Resistbot (resist.bot) is your friend.

Please use our Phone Scripts 10.7-10.13.2019
