Safety in our schools, and in our communities

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 real laws be implemented to protect our children and our communities from gun violence.

Schools are in session, and all over the US, school systems are implementing changes - implementing more barriers, more trauma training, and more security. But Congress has been sitting on its hands. Will [the MoC] increase the pressure on senators and representatives to actually pass any of the pieces of legislation that could improve security and prevent gun violence?

Background:

Reunite them ALL!

Hello, my name is _______ and I’m a constituent from <city, zip> and a member of Indivisible. I’m calling to ask [the MoC] to continue to demand that the Trump regime reunite ALL of the remaining migrant children ripped from their parents NOW.

Hundreds of children STILL haven’t been reunited with their parents. These families will pay for this separation for years to come - but our country will pay for it for decades. And governmental officials put barriers in front of these families, rather than opening doors. The damage to the children is irreparable.

Background:

Don’t let this president change the subject

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 tell the public:  The President is not above the law. And we will not be distracted.

After a series of childish lies, the current president has acknowledged that his campaign tried to accept stolen information from the Russian government’s spies - information that they thought would be damning to Sec. Clinton. The current president revokes security clearance for John Brennan, and threatens to do this to other critics of the current government. The current president also threatens to silence the free press. Through threats and coercion, the current president consistently works to undermine the rule of law.

Please continue to boldly reject the current president’s premise that he can lie his way out of this.

Continue to build the case against Kavanaugh

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 find all the evidence to prove what is already apparent:  Brett Kavanaugh won’t protect our democracy from Trump and the Russian attack that put him in power.

Even from what’s already publicly available, it looks like Kavanaugh’s view of the presidency is that the office places the holder above the law. That would be a dangerous view at any time, with Trump it may amount to a permanent surrender to Vladimir Putin. I’m imploring the Senator to find every scrap of evidence to prove that Kavanaugh would be a clear danger to democracy, then use it to sink him.
