NO Renewed Family Separations!!

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 loudly and vehemently oppose the administration*’s new plan to renew migrant family separations.

This is nothing but the same inhuman, failed program in a new wrapper: jailing parents and children together for twenty days, then threatening to keep them there indefinitely unless they agree to give their children up. The mastermind behind the plan is, of course, Stephen Miller, author of the regime’s cruelest policies. I’m asking [the MoC] to raise bloody hell about this right now.

We MUST Reverse Global Warming

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 insist that we take immediate and dramatic steps to reverse carbon emissions. A new report has now told us that we have ten years to massively reverse the carbon output that is causing global warming. We must act. I know that Trump won’t. But that doesn’t mean we should remain silent. I’m asking [the MoC] to relentlessly, annoyingly raise this most pressing issue until we begin to get traction.

Stop Suppressing the Vote!

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 condemn efforts nationwide by the GOP to impede the right of citizens to vote.

From Georgia to North Dakota, they’re at it again: the GOP can’t win fairly, so they wait until the last minute and cheat like crazy. In Georgia, the Secretary of State, who is also running for governor, just kicked more than 53,000 people, most of them black, off the rolls, for tiny differences between registration records and official documents, such as driver’s licenses. I’m asking my [MoC] to loudly and publicly denounce them and ask: why are they afraid of the voters?

WRITE to the National Park Service:
Preserve the Right to Protest in DC!

The Trump Administration is proposing new rules that will severely limit the right to protest near the White House or on the National Mall. They would limit where protests could take place, they would charge fees for protesting and they would impose wait times for demonstrations. We all know why they want to do this: Trump wants to rule as a dictator and he is afraid of the voice of the people of this country, who overwhelmingly disapprove of him. It’s vital that you submit a public comment by this Tuesday, October 15th. Use your own words, but they must include mention of the agency and ruling #:
National Park Service RIN 1024-AE45
