Wed. 10/14: Three things to do today.

Action #1 – Tell your senators to do their job.

A senator’s sworn duty is to protect the Constitution, the preamble to which sets out the main issues that they must concentrate on, which includes overseeing the welfare of our people. Hunger. Homelessness. Health. Instead of doing their job, the Senate GOP has punted – leaving the hard work of creating a just and adequate COVID-19 relief package to the House and Treasury Secretary Mnuchin, subject to the whims and tantrums of a president flying high on steroids. Instead of following their sworn oath, they’ve focused on cementing their own power with a nominee that will decrease “justice for all” throughout this country for a generation. (Story out – Amy Coney Barrett doesn’t think the use of the “n-word” creates a hostile work environment!) Senator Mitch McConnell, the ringleader of this historic abrogation of the Senate’s prime responsibility, should be censured and removed from office.

Minimal script: I’m calling from [zip code] and I want Sen. [___] to know that that we out here are angered and horrified that the Senate is not working 24/7 on creating a COVID relief bill to help the American people survive a pandemic. Their sworn duty involves protecting the welfare of the people, and we want them to do their jobs. Now. Now after a politically-polluted judicial nomination. Now!

Contact your senator:

Action #2 – Sign up to be an Election Protection volunteer.

Sign up here! We need your help to protect voters’ rights from the unprecedented threats they will face this year when trying to cast their ballot. Nonpartisan Election Protection volunteers like you will be voters’ first line of defense against restrictive election laws, coronavirus-related voting disruptions, or anything else that could silence their voices.

We’ll help you find the best way to get involved — whether that’s monitoring polling places (from your vehicle, or with proper personal safety equipment), watchdogging social media for disinformation, or reaching out to voters to make sure they know their rights. You’ll connect voters with trained legal professionals who can help them navigate the voting process and cast their ballots safely and securely.

Unfortunately, voters this year will face obstacles that have no place in a modern democracy — and these impediments to voting will hit communities of color the hardest. You can make a major difference for voters in your community by signing up today — we will reach out with all the information you need to get started >>

Action #3 – Today is Indivisible’s National Day of Phonebanking! Join in!

We encourage you to sign up for a call shift to support our endorsed IndivisiCandidates, and to sign up during our National Phonebank Day of Action on October 14! Sign up here.

Sign up for a shift making calls to voters in key states to connect them directly and make sure they’re ready to take part in the 2020 election. You can volunteer from anywhere, and we’ll follow up and make sure you have everything you need to contact voters once you sign up. In order to volunteer, folks will need access to a computer or tablet to log in to our remote phonebanking system as well as a phone to actually make the calls.
