To get you fired up for calls, here is a recent 'rant' from an Indivisible activist: "There are now people in our government who want to change our government into something I don't want it to be.

Scripts this week have us calling our Senators about healthcare (keep it up!), net neutrality, voting rights and election interference/collusion -- massive threats to our democracy.. For our Congressmen, we focus on free press, net neutrality and voting rights. These are critical, constitutional issues. Go Indivisible!
Call your Members of Congress about new information that Donald Trump, Jr. (and others) met with a Russian government attorney. They met to get what Trump Jr. was explicitly told was the Russian government’s help in the election. We ask that you call both Senators and your Congressman.
Lawmakers are back in session this week. McConnell will continue to press for a healthcare vote. In addition to continuing our ask for Senators to push for bipartisan solutions to improve the ACA, we ask them to rigorously protect voting rights. We ask our Congressmen to also protect voter rights, as well as the Legal Services Corporation which serves thousands of low-income individuals, veterans, children, families, and seniors in every congressional district.
The Senate is trying to do what the House of Representatives did in May: jam through its TrumpCare bill without an honest and open discussion about its full impact on American families. In addition to our continued fight against repeal of the ACA, we ask for our lawmakers to introduce a bill that requires states to upgrade and secure their voter data, to halt the elimination of the Legal Services Corporation, and to denounce the Republican President’s use of name-calling and unforgivable language.
Indys...if you have never done any action, or if you are a daily caller, please STEP IT UP this week via phone, social media, letters to the editor, calls to Senators, and outreach to friends and family out of state. Here is our two-step plan...
Today’s scripts for Senators continue to focus on healthcare and the procedures that lead up to a vote in the Senate prior to July 4th. There are also scripts for those with Republican Senators who have not yet committed to their position. Indivisible encourages us to use our networks to find friends living in those states to make calls to their senators. Those numbers and scripts are at the bottom of this page.
Scripts thank Senator Harris for her strength, and ask both our Senators to be strong with the Comey testimony /Mueller investigation. We ask that Senator Feinstein oppose the nomination of Bush for the 6th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals, and thank our Congressmen for ensuring that California moves forward into a cleaner and healthier 21st Century.
Phone scripts this week address hearing from James Comey, Sessions Security clearance, holding the line on healthcare, housing, ICE detention centers and the environment. Please use your own language and ensure your voice is heard!
In our suggested scripts this week we work to keep Trumpcare from EVER passing the Senate, we begin to dig into Budget Appropriation committee intricacies, we request full funding for the Census Bureau, and we ask that Jared Kushner’s security clearance be revoked.
