Let’s thank our Members of Congress for standing firm in the face of the president’s blackmail. And let’s urge Congress to not allow this to ever happen again. It’s time to pass legislation that prevents government shutdowns - and to support the Green New Deal!
THANK YOU for Standing Strong!
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 staying strong and united and forcing Trump and McConnell to end their extortion attempt on Trump’s wall. And please thank Speaker Pelosi!
I am so proud that our party stood firm in the face of Trump’s hostage-taking and McConnell’s cowardice. Our democracy will die if we abandon legislating in favor of mob tactics like extortion. Trump needed to be resoundingly defeated for trying it and he was. Bravo! Please stay just as strong in the future. Because we all know he won’t stop trying.
It’s Time to End Shutdowns for Good
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 legislation that would remove the danger of government shutdowns going forward.
Shutdowns are not legislating. They are a form of extortion, favored by those opposed to governing and government. Because the Trump Shutdown was such a disaster for Republicans (who would do nothing to stop it), we may now have a window in which we can end the option shutdowns once and for all. Please pursue it. It’s time for shutdowns to end – for good.
Return ALL of the Children NOW
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 continue to pressure the administration* to reunite ALL separated migrant children with their parents.
We found out this last week that Kirstjen Nielsen’s DHS had separated thousands more children, beginning earlier, than had been reported. This is outrageous and inhumane. It must be put right. Will [the MoC] commit to an unceasing effort to see all children reunited?
Begin the Process of Impeachment
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 insist that the House of Representatives begin, methodically and carefully, the process of impeaching Donald Trump.
Donald Trump has clearly failed to uphold his oath of office. He violates it nearly every day. Our Founders specified a remedy for removing unfit presidents and the words “Special Counsel” are to be found nowhere in it.
To quote Yoni Applebaum: “It is absurd to suggest that the Constitution would delineate a mechanism too potent to ever actually be employed. Impeachment, in fact, is a vital protection against the dangers a president like Trump poses. And, crucially, many of its benefits—to the political health of the country, to the stability of the constitutional system—accrue irrespective of its ultimate result. Impeachment is a process, not an outcome, a rule-bound procedure for investigating a president, considering evidence, formulating charges, and deciding whether to continue on to trial.”
The House must begin it NOW.
Support the 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 [Representative Huffman / Thompson] to publicly support the Green New Deal.
Global warming is the gravest threat we face and the Green New Deal is finally catalyzing discussion and planning for an aggressive and just path forward:
Rapid decarbonization of our economy
achieved through public investment which includes a jobs guarantee
and ensures a just transition
I will hold the Representative accountable for fully and vocally supporting it.
