There are some tools to use when you don’t have a legislative majority. One of those tools is the media; another is to use parliamentary procedures to deny a win to the majority.
We urge our Senators and Congress members to use those tools to oppose prematurely ending the Mueller investigation and the appointment of Pompeo and Haspel to diplomatic and security positions.
Tell Trump: Back Off or Else!
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 stand with Andrew McCabe and to tell Trump clearly: BACK OFF.
Democratic leaders have asked their Republican colleagues to warn Trump not to threaten the Mueller investigation. This is fine, but it’s not enough. All Democrats must make it clear NOW that with any interference in the Mueller investigation they will work to bring the government to a complete standstill, using every parliamentary procedure at their disposal. No excuses, no exceptions. This is the commitment I need from [the MoC] TODAY.
No On Mike Pompeo and Gina Haspel
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 oppose the nominations of Mike Pompeo for Secretary of State and Gina Haspel for Director of the FBI.
Pompeo is a Trump lackey and a hawk who will work to undo the agreement with Iran. Haspel presided over a black site that engaged in torture and then helped to destroy the evidence. Neither is fit for the job they have been nominated for. I’m calling on [the MoC] to vote a resounding “NO” for each.
No Bailout for the Republican Tax Scam
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 oppose any amendments to the Republican Tax Scam passed last December.
Republicans rushed the bill through in secrecy, precisely so that no one would know what was in it. In the sloppy, careless process they made some really stupid mistakes. What a surprise! Now, despite the fact that they allowed no Democratic input into the bill whatsoever, they want – and need – Democrats’ help to fix their errors. NO. They deserve to own this. MAKE THEM. No backing down!
Make Zuckerberg Testify
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 force Mark Zuckerberg (not his representatives!) to testify before Congress to explain why Facebook allowed 50 million users’ data to be weaponized in the 2016 election – and what steps he is taking to make sure that this never happens again.
It emerged this week that Facebook knew that the data of 50 million users had been illegally weaponized by Cambridge Analytica, Steven Bannon’s company that helped Trump win in 2016. Facebook’s actions in light of this threat have been far too little, far too late. They must suffer the consequences.

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 relentlessly publicize, to support and to participate in the March For Our Lives this coming Saturday, March 24th.
The students of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, are leading one of the great movements of our time. The next key step in that movement to pass sensible gun legislation to protect our children is their March For Our Lives this coming Saturday. I’m urging [the MoC] to both publicize the March and also to attend it. And then: pay attention to the students. Because they are the most articulate messengers for this cause, bar none. Please, study what they do and learn.
