DACA and CHIP Now or Let Them Find the Votes

Hi, my name is _______ and I’m a constituent from zip code______ and a member of Indivisible. I’m calling to thank [the MoC] for withholding their vote for a continuing resolution until there’s a clean DACA and CHIP funding attached.

With Trump's abhorrent racist comment this week, he and his apologists have made it abundantly clear that the only way they will protect the Dreamers is when they’re forced to. And if CHIP is extended for ten years instead of five, it will be essentially free. They’re the majority – let them provide the votes to keep the government running. If they fail, let them take the blame, as they surely will.

Thank you for standing firm! Never, ever give in.

Censure President “Sh**hole”

Hi, my name is _______ and I’m a constituent from zip code______ and a member of Indivisible. I’m calling to ask [the MoC] to move to censure the President for his racist remarks about Haiti, El Salvador and African nations.

Virulently racist, vulgar, stupid and mean, Trump doesn’t belong in the White House. In time we will throw him out. Until then, he should be censured for his vile remarks.

Can I count on [the MoC] to move to censure the President?

Boycott the State of the Union Address

Hi, my name is _______ and I’m a constituent from zip code______ and a member of Indivisible. I’m calling to ask [the MoC] to boycott the State of the Union address.

In normal times boycotting the Address would be unthinkable. However. Trump is unfit to be President. He is an authoritarian who just this last week called for attacks on the press, the judiciary and the rule of law. This when he wasn’t calling countries with brown people “shitholes” and asking to let in lily-white Norwegians. He’s also a pathological liar. He doesn’t deserve to be respected and he shouldn’t be listened to. Representatives Waters and Blumenauer have already said they’ll skip the address.

Will [my MoC] join their colleagues in boycotting the State of the Union address?

Thank You for Fighting Offshore Drilling

Hi, my name is _______ and I’m a constituent from zip code______ and a member of Indivisible. I’m calling to thank [my MoC] for opposing the administration’s order to open the American coastline to offshore drilling.

The administration has been transparent:  they only want more oil if they can get it from Blue State coastlines. Drilling is an irresponsible thing to do anyplace you actually care about. Like near Mar-a-Lago. Or its large swing state that happens to have a Republican governor. Tough luck for them.

I know that you will fight this tooth and nail every step of the way. Thank you!
