Make three phone calls. Call for our environment and to address Global Climate Change. Call to free the children. Tell them not to fund the border wall. Investigate the crimes of Individual 1. Find a different chair for the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee.
We Want a Green New Deal
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 support the formation of a Select Committee on a New Green Deal to rapidly design and implement policies to stop climate change and in the process create millions of good jobs – and to eliminate the influence of fossil fuel money in politics.
We’re out of time. We need to replace carbon-producing energy with renewables before our planet becomes uninhabitable – and there is no time to waste! The good news is that we have the technology – renewables – and bringing them online can create a massive boost to our economy, putting millions to work. The bad news is the bad guys: fossil fuel interests are blocking the way forward. We need to end the corrupting influence of fossil fuel interests upon our politicians and our society and get to work. NOW.
Free the Children
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 demand that the administration stop the detention of thousands of migrant children and reunite all of the children separated from their families.
The purpose of the administration’s detention policy has always been to intimidate through terror. It hasn’t changed and they haven’t obeyed orders to stop. They are detaining thousands of children, haven’t reunited all of the separated children, and don’t do sufficient background checks on those guarding them. It’s an outrage and a disgrace. Please get them to STOP by any and all means at your disposal, including cutting off funding.
NO $s for a Border Wall!
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 make it clear to the Trump administration that elections have consequences and the American people have spoken: there will be NO money for a border wall. Not a cent.
About ten million more people voted for Democrats than Republicans in November. This is more than triple the margin by which Hillary Clinton won the popular vote over Individual-1, in what was clearly a referendum on his presidency*. The message couldn’t have been clearer. His policies were rejected, and that includes funding for his precious wall. There must be NO money allocated for it in any funding legislation.
Manchin Must NOT Become Ranking Member of Energy & Natural Resources
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 take every step possible to ensure that Senator Joe Manchin does NOT become the ranking member of the Energy & Natural Resources Committee.
We have taken back the House and they will begin work on urgently needed global warming legislation. When we take back the Senate and White House in 2020, we need to be able to move that legislation forward at lightning speed. That effort will die in committee if Manchin, as ranking member, becomes the Chair. This must not happen. There are several others ahead of him for the post – Cantwell, Wyden, Sanders, Stabenow – but they may not want it. They must either be convinced to accept the responsibility or it should go to Senator Martin Heinrich. Under no circumstances must it go to Manchin.
Investigate the Crimes of Individual-1
Hi, my name is _______ and I’m a constituent from zip code______ and a member of Indivisible. I’m calling to ask Representative [Huffman / Thompson] to support thorough investigations into the apparently rampant criminality of Individual-1, aka Donald Trump.
His own Department of Justice has said that he committed felonies in order to defraud the people of the United States to get elected. His former Secretary of State has said that he often had to tell Individual-1 that he couldn’t do things that he wanted to do because they were illegal. There are many, many clues that appear to lead to other and even more serious crimes. Investigate them all. Don’t assume that a sitting president can’t be indicted. Try it. Chase this criminal down and end his blight upon America.
