Script: I’m calling from [zip code] to ask Sen.

Trump’s proposed budget completely defunds the West Coast’s earthquake warning system

After years of work, an earthquake early warning system for the west coast was scheduled to begin operating next year. The system would deliver an early warning of an earthquake or tsunami to every cell phone. Trump’s budget would defund it. Public safety is a nonpartisan issue, and stopping progress on the warning system would put millions of lives at risk.

Script:  I’m calling to ask (___) to fight to maintain funding for the west coast earthquake warning system that has been in development for many years.  Public safety is a nonpartisan issue.

Trump’s budget includes a mean-spirited 25% cut to the food stamp (SNAP) program!

Trump’s budget cuts 25% from the food stamp (SNAP) budget. 45 million Americans, nearly half of them children who rely on food stamps. Studies consistently show that SNAP reduces hunger and food insecurity and provides lasting health benefits to recipients. SNAP is also an important way to lift families out of poverty, and to tide them over during times of economic insecurity.

Script: I’m calling to ask (____) to oppose any cuts to SNAP.  I do not support funding tax cuts for the wealthy by cutting critical food assistance to families and children.

Facebook Live Event. You’re invited.

Join us tonight at 8:30 PM ET for a Facebook Live for the latest on recess and saving health care. We’ll be joined by the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities to answer your questions in real-time on TrumpCare, the CBO score, Russia, and how you can hold your members of Congress accountable this recess.

Our recess priorities: The Trump administration is forcing our movement to play defense on multiple fronts. The fate of the ACA is now in the hands of a Republican-led Senate that has tried to repeal it for 7 years. The connections between the Trump camp and Russian officials are becoming clearer. Trump’s draconian budget proposal is out and on June 7, the House GOP will vote on a bill that would gut protections for families from big Wall Street banks.

As former congressional staffers, here are the things we think you and your local Indivisible team should be prioritizing this Memorial Day recess.
