Minimal Script: I’m calling from zip code […..] to urge Sen. [___]  to use every procedural tool at her/his disposal – including withholding consent if necessary – to defeat the Trump Tax Scam.

Representatives

Minimal Script: I am calling from [zip code] to ask Rep. [___] to co-sponsor H.R. 669 – “Restricting First Use of Nuclear Weapons Act of 2017”. 

More script if you want it: Trump should not be allowed to launch a nuclear first strike without a declaration of war by Congress. I believe that this bill preserves Constitutional checks and balances on Executive powers.

Rep. Salud Carbajal has already signed. Thank him by email

WTH? – Rep. Julia Brownley: (CA-26): DC (202) 225-5811, Oxnard (805) 379-1779, T.O. (805) 379-1779

Senator, how many reasons do you need to oppose the Senate Budget Resolution?  

Script: I’m calling from [zip code] to ask Sen. [___] to oppose the fiscally irresponsible 2018 Senate Budget Resolution, which would allow Republicans to give $1.5 trillion in tax cuts to corporations and top earners while slashing Medicaid, Medicare, Social Security, public education and opening the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge in Alaska to oil drilling.

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

Senator Harris: DC (202) 224-3553, LA (213) 894-5000, SAC (916) 448-2787, Fresno (559) 497-5109, SF (415) 355-9041, SD (619) 239-3884

33,636 points of heartbreak…one year of gun deaths in America and what you can do.

It’s hard to even conceive of what 33,636 deaths looks like… 

These blocks of guns, each little gun symbol representing a death, is for all us visual learners out there. This amazing depiction of what 33,636 gun deaths a year really looks like is brought to us thanks to Matt Maughey. (Scroll through it in one solid block here )

But change is happening.

full block

The public is truly done with “thoughts and prayers” as our only defense against urban warfare.

What happened in Vegas put the lie to NRA claims that good-people-with-guns in a crowd could always stop a shooting.

The NRA is grudgingly prepared to sacrifice bump stocks as truly the least they can do.

We are at a tipping point…

Demand more. Make these 3+ calls.

No More Delay: Pass the Dream Act (S. 1615) Now!

Minimal Script: I’m calling Senator Feinstein to thank her for co-sponsoring the bipartisan 2017 DREAM Act (S.1615), and to ask her to urge the Judiciary Committee to push it through quickly so it can proceed to a vote on the Senate floor.

More script if you want it:  The DREAM Act would override any effort by Trump to scrap DACA and its protections for young undocumented immigrants who were brought to the U.S. as children.

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

Ask Congress to provide immediate relief for Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands. Also things we can do…

Minimal Script: I’m calling from [zip code] to urge Rep. [___] to immediately pass a hurricane relief package for Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands, including waivers for both the Jones Act and the Federal Matching Requirements.

More script if you want it: It is inexcusable for the federal government to not take swift protective action when millions of Americans are in the midst of a dire humanitarian crisis.

Rep. Julia Brownley: (CA-26): DC (202) 225-5811, Oxnard (805) 379-1779, T.O. (805) 379-1779

The Dark Side returns. Fight back with your phone!

For those who missed this yesterday, take a moment and mentally thank Jimmy Kimmel for taking time out of his show for this!

Here’s another good video. Remind these senators what they said the last time our health care was at risk.

Step 1 – Put your own oxygen mask on first!

Minimal Script: Hi. I’m from [ZIP] calling to ask Senators [___] to oppose the Cassidy-Graham ACA repeal plan. Congress needs to improve the Affordable Care Act, not repeal it and leave millions of people without options. Thanks!

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