Phone Scripts 6.7-6.10.2018: Protect the Children!/Send Aid to Puerto Rico + More

Our Members of Congress heard us on June 5. And we need to be confident they continue to hear us. When children are at risk, when All the President’s Men and Women appear corrupt and venal, when they’ve all gone silent about saving lives and restoring power on Puerto Rico - we will remind them and urge them to be loud and proud. Make those calls today!

Protect 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 Department of Homeland Security immediately cease the separation of children from their parents at the border. I also urge [the MoC] to visit the children and assess the conditions under which they are being held.

The order to criminalize migrant children and rip them from their parents was given by Jeff Sessions. Tearing children from their parents creates lasting damage and is, effectively, a type of torture. Please call this what it is:  evil. And please oppose it daily and loudly, as if the children were your own.

Send Aid to Puerto Rico

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 on finally sending enough aid to Puerto Rico to help them recover from the devastating effects of Hurricane Maria.

Our country’s abandonment of Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands in their hour of need last year was an unimaginable stain upon us. Thousands died. More than in Katrina. More than 9/11. Pause for a moment and take that in. Now consider that these were preventable deaths. And we did Next. To. Nothing. Shame on Congress and, especially, on the Trump regime. Now do better. Send them the aid they still need. Get them on their feet. And apologize.

Say It Loud:  Corruption and Collusion Are WELL ESTABLISHED

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 use their platform to regularly tell the truth:  the corruption and collusion of the Trump regime are well established.

Trump is using Giuliani and others to muddy the waters and confuse voters. Yes, he has the bully pulpit. But there is no excuse for giving up and letting him own the message. Because the truth is that the corruption and collusion of the Trump campaign and regime are already well-established. You are welcome to wait for further evidence from Mueller to establish his case. But you must not wait to tell this truth over and over:  we already know that there has been significant corruption and collusion. That’s already a fact.

Impeach Scott Pruitt

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 the impeachment of EPA head Scott Pruitt.

I’d give you a list of reasons, but it would almost certainly be out of date, as a new Pruitt scandal seems to come to light every twelve hours or so. Enough. Pruitt’s level of corruption is nauseating. Remove him.
