Tuesday 3/20 – Call and remind your legislators that it’s no longer business as usual.

We are not the same people we were in 2016.

The omnibus spending bill must be passed by March 23 to avoid a government shutdown, and may be voted on in the House as early as this week. Although the bill needs bipartisan support to pass, it is bristling with poisonous riders. Make sure your legislators know how important getting this bill cleaned up is to their continuing employment.

Action:

  • At the minimum, tell our legislators to specifically root out these horrible misogynistic, homophobic, xenophobic, corrupt and greedy partisan riders listed below and have them removed.
  • Ask them to find their bravery again and support the DACA kids, along with refusing the obscene amount of money the administration wants to waste against our immigrant population.
  • Ask them to propose actions that are actually helpful, such as gun violence prevention funding, removing the Dickey Amendment, shielding our elections and our country’s infrastructure from Russians, protecting Mueller’s investigation from “Friends of Russia”, prohibiting the use of our tax dollars at Trump-owned properties or businesses, and getting the government to actually hand over the already promised financial assistance to Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands.

Minimum Script: I’m calling from [zip code] to urge Rep./Sen. [___] to reject all riders to the omnibus spending bill that would threaten the health and rights of women and LGBTQ people, that  de-regulate environmental protections, that fund xenophobic immigration policies, and that increase dark money into our elections.

More script if you want it: Add anything from the listing below that particularly interests you.
