Action! 9.10-9.12.2018

Less than two months.

That’s what remains before the Midterm election.

Less than one month

That’s how much time we have to change the minds of Republican senators, and help Democratic senators hold firm and protect settled law.

We will put our energy into writing postcards, knocking on doors, sending texts, and making phone calls.

We must Resist. Rally. March. Call. Write. Act. And VOTE!

ACTIONS: The Resistance tackles the Supreme Court Appointment

Make a Call:
Call Claire McCaskill, Heidi Heitkamp and Doug Jones because they are Dems in red states who might not be inclined to hold a united front against the appointment.

Claire McCaskill: @clairecmc – 202-224-6154
Heidi Heitkamp: @SenatorHeitkamp – 202-224-6154
Doug Jones: @SenDougJones – 202-224-4124

Script:
“Hi, my name is _______ and I’m a constituent from zip code______ and a member of Indivisible. I’m calling to ask the Senator to continue to reject consideration of the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court so long as Republican Senators continue to withhold documents critical to evaluating his nomination.

The stonewalling by Republicans is unprecedented and part of a concerted effort to rush his confirmation before the truth can out. This is deeply wrong and unfair to all citizens of our country. It’s also part of an established pattern of abuse of power by Senate Republicans. It must be wholly rejected by all Democratic Senators.”


Don’t forget to use our scripts and call our own Senators, Kamala Harris and Dianne Feinstein.


ACTIONS: We have less than 2 months to make an amazing impact on the House and Senate races.

We can do that by contacting voters: writing postcards, sending texts and emails, making phone calls, and knocking on doors.

Get started by reading Indivisible’s brand-new Guide for Winning Elections! This voter contact guide is your one-stop-shop for planning all of your electoral work. Check it out here and share with your friends and colleagues.
