- More than 400 children remain separated from their families. Every day that passes makes this tragedy more unbearable.
- The scandal in the White House continues to grow.
- The Republican Congress passes legislation; the Republican Cabinent passes new regulations - and we see our rights under attack daily.
- Lies. And more lies.
Let’s shed some daylight on politics. Make your calls today. And tomorrow. Nothing changes unless we continue to resist.
Stop the Trump Attacks on 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 vehemently oppose the Trump attacks on children: he must reunite ALL of the separated children NOW and maintain the Flores Settlement Agreement that limits the detention of immigrant children.
First Trump ripped hundreds of children away from their parents, losing many in the process. Under pressure, he finally reunited some, but hundreds still – still – are separated, despite a court order to return all of them by July 26th.
Now his administration* is trying to withdraw from the Flores Agreement, so that they can incarcerate children for far longer than the twenty days allowed. This “could lead to a rapid expansion of detention facilities”, in other words, prison camps for kids. Republicans pretend that the crisis is over and the news media has moved on. NO. The Trump attack on children is in full swing. OPPOSE IT.
The President* is Unfit to Lead
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 state publicly, today, that the President* is apparently unfit to lead.
The news was consumed this week with reports, starting with the book from Bob Woodward, that Trump is a raging moron who is presents an ongoing danger to the country, so much so that his staff has to deceive him regularly to prevent catastrophe. The Republican response has been – nothing. The Democratic response cannot be silence. The [MoC] doesn’t need to bring up impeachment.
The first step is investigation: a physical and mental exam by someone who hasn’t been corrupted the way Ronny Jackson was, investigations by Congress. What can’t be countenanced is to say and do nothing. This is a crisis. I’m begging [the MoC] to act like it!
End the Trade Wars
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 call for an immediate end to the trade wars.
Trump doesn’t understand trade. This past week’s revelations from Bob Woodward and others confirm the fact. It’s no surprise that his trade wars are misguided and chaotic, nor that they will cause immense damage. They must be stopped.
Will [the MoC] call for an end to Trump’s trade wars?
Impeach Kavanaugh, Don’t Just Reject Him
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 call for the impeachment of Brett Kavanaugh, instead of his confirmation.
Lying under oath by a judge, of all people, is wrong. There are many reasons to reject Kavanaugh’s nomination, too many for me to list, but beyond that, lying to Congress about receiving stolen material should get him impeached. Let him practice law, but don’t let him judge others. Don’t just reject him. Call for his impeachment.

The California Air Resources Board is having a public hearing on amendments to the Low-Emission Vehicle III Greenhouse Gas Emission Regulation on Sept. 27th at 9:00AM in Sacramento. The purpose of the amendments is to protect California’s vehicle emissions standards from an attack by Trump’s EPA, which is maintaining that we don’t have the right to set our own standards.
Please use the link above to write to the CARB and be sure to submit your comments by September 14th. Here’s a sample script, but feel free to write your own:
I'm writing in support of your proposed amendments to the Low-Emission Vehicle III Greenhouse Gas Emission Regulation. We must, at all costs, protect our own stringent standards against attack by Trump's EPA.
