Thurs – 9/27: She showed up. Now we need to do our part.

Action #1 – Tell the Judiciary Committee that you’re watching…

(from Chop Wood, Carry Water) If we are APPALLED by this hearing, we can call the DIRECT number for the Office of the Judiciary – Grassley’s office, and voice our opinion there. They ARE taking tallies: 202-224-5225. General Judiciary #: 202.225.3951
If your senators are on the committee like CA’s (check here), call them. 

Senator Feinstein: email DC (202) 224-3841, LA (310) 914-7300, SF (415) 393-0707, SD (619) 231-9712, Fresno (559) 485-7430

We can use our own words or we can use this script from Shannon Coulter of Grab Your WalletMinimal Script: “I’m from [state] and I just wanted to let you know that I will donate to the political opponents of any Senator who votes to confirm Kavanaugh for the rest of their political careers.”

Here are the GOP Senators facing 2018 elections:
On the Judiciary Committee
Orrin Hatch (R-UT)
 retiring. She is “mistaken“.
Jeff Flake (R-AZ) retiring
Ted Cruz (R-TX): personal friend to Kavanaugh.
In the Senate at large
Cindy Hyde-Smith (R-MS):
…”any sexual assault is “unacceptable,” but she believes there’s “a major partisan effort” to undermine Kavanaugh’s character and nomination.”
Dean Heller (R-NV):
“…said Thursday that his comment that the issues facing Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh over allegations of sexual assault were just a “hiccup” had been misinterpreted.”
Roger Wicker (R-MS):
…“a coordinated campaign designed to smear Judge Kavanaugh” and Senate Democrats “are not interested in truth or justice.”
Deb Fischer (R-NE):
crickets
John Barrasso (R-WY):
crickets

Action #2 – Tell her how amazing she is.

Send bright colorful postcards (that do not require opening and are clearly not hate mail) to her with words of gratitude for her courage:

Dr. Christine Blasey Ford
Palo Alto University
1791 Arastradero Rd.
Palo Alto, CA, 94304

Action #3 – Tell your senators their support for survivors is not optional.

Minimal Script: I’m calling from [zip code] and I want the Judicial committee and Senator [___] to take all survivor allegations against Judge Kavanaugh seriously by selecting a neutral investigative body with with experience in sexual misconduct cases that will investigate and present its findings to the committee.

Contact your Senator:
Senator Feinstein: email DC (202) 224-3841, LA (310) 914-7300, SF (415) 393-0707, SD (619) 231-9712, Fresno (559) 485-7430
and Senator Harris: email DC (202) 224-3553, LA (213) 894-5000, SAC (916) 448-2787, Fresno (559) 497-5109, SF (415) 355-9041, SD (619) 239-3884
