Hello, I’m __________ from __________, calling today to urge the Senator/Representative to do everything in his/her power to stand up against the repeal of protections on bathroom rights for transgender students. There are clear laws against sex discrimination in schools, as laid out by Title IX, and our elected officials have an obligation to uphold these laws. Allowing the protections to be repealed sends the message that the administration does not stand with all citizens and will contribute to increased harassment, harm, and suffering amongst transgender students. If our government does not support all of its citizens, it validates acts of discrimination. Thank you.
Hi, I’m __________ from __________. I’m calling because I am concerned about the Administration’s connections to Russia. I find it very troubling that our intelligence community concluded that Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered hacks of the Democratic Party with the explicit purpose of helping Donald Trump’s campaign. This behavior undermines our democracy and something must be done. I’m asking the Senator/Representative to fully investigate this matter, including the allegations that the Russian government has information that could be used to blackmail President Trump. Congress must also investigate what former National Security Advisor Flynn discussed with Russian ambassador Kislyak and whether President Trump was aware of these conversations.
Hello, I’m __________ from __________. I’m calling today to urge Senator/Representative __________ to support The Bridge Act, introduced by Senator Durbin and Senator Graham, which will protect DACA recipients from deportation threats and work authorization to young people currently benefitting from the DACA program. This bipartisan bill would also allow others who qualify for DACA to apply for protected status, including those who have recently become eligible by meeting the program's education and age requirements. DACA recipients are in the United States legally and thus must be protected from recent Executive Orders passed by the Administration. I am appalled that the DACA recipients, including Daniel Ramirez Medina in Seattle and Josué Romero in San Antonio, were detained and brought into custody. Dreamers deserve every protection that U.S. law allows them and we must support them in their efforts to create a better future for themselves and for our country. Thank you.
Hello, I’m __________ from __________. I’m calling today because I am very disappointed about Tom Price becoming Secretary of Health and Human Services. I will remember the Senator’s vote in future elections. It’s clear that party loyalty got in the way of the country’s best interests. I urge the Senator to support the Affordable Care Act, Medicare, and Medicaid. I am scared about calls to privatize or defund these programs because all Americans deserve comprehensive healthcare coverage and access that allows them to see their doctors and afford medication and treatment. My friends, family, and I rely on these programs. Do not let Congress repeal the ACA without a replacement that improves the coverage of the ACA for all Americans. Thank you.
Hello, I’m __________ from __________. I’m calling today to thank the Senator for voting against Tom Price as Secretary of Health and Human Services. I am scared about Republican calls to privatize or defund Affordable Care Act, Medicare, and Medicaid because all Americans deserve comprehensive healthcare coverage and access that allows them to see their doctors and afford medication and treatment. My friends, family, and I rely on these programs. Do not let Congress repeal the ACA without a replacement that improves the coverage of the ACA for all Americans. Thank you.
Hi, I’m __________ from __________. I’m calling today because I am concerned about President Trump’s refusal to release his tax returns. I urge Congressman Chaffetz to fulfill his responsibility as House Government Oversight Chair by investigating the full extent of President Trump’s financial and business entanglements. Ethics experts have already determined that President Trump is likely violating the Constitution by personally profiting from the presidency. His refusal to give up an ownership share in the Trump Organization creates a clear conflict of interest, as his net worth will increase with any favorable government decisions. Moreover, since he has not divested from his business dealings with foreign governments, President Trump is in violation of the Emoluments Clause. Congressman Chaffetz owes it to the American people to conduct a thorough investigation, and I will continue to hold him accountable. Thank you for your time.
Hello, I’m __________ from ____________. I’m calling today to urge the Senator/Representative to do everything in his/her power to protect the environment. I am dismayed that Scott Pruitt was confirmed as EPA Administrator and that the vote was pushed through before his emails were made public. Now we know that Pruitt is way too close to big oil companies to be fair-minded at the EPA. The Trump administration is now rolling back environmental regulations that protect our nation’s waterways and air quality from pollution by coal companies and other polluters. This is unacceptable. Congress should NOT use the Congressional Review Act to aid in making our land, water, air, and people sicker. Environmental protection deregulation will not create jobs, but it will hurt our people and planet for generations. Please take action and refuse to promote pollution. Thank you.
Hello, I’m ___________, and I’m calling from ___________ to urge Senator/Representative ___________ to do everything in their power to support women’s health and reproductive rights, and specifically to vote NO on any resolution to dismantle the Title X rule. I am extremely concerned about attempts by the Trump administration and the GOP to pass restrictive abortion laws, defund Planned Parenthood, and prevent access to lifesaving health care services, such as those provided by Title X. Women deserve to make their own medical decisions, and for many low-income women, reproductive health centers may be their only option for basic care. This issue is a determining factor in how I vote, and I’m paying close attention. Thank you for your time.
Hello, I’m __________ calling from __________ to urge Senator/Representative __________ to vote NO on Andy Puzder to be Secretary of Labor. Puzder’s record on supporting the rights and well-being of workers is unacceptable. His opposition to increasing the minimum wage to $15, expansion of overtime eligibility, and the Affordable Care Act make him the wrong person to protect American workers. Thank you.
Hi, I’m __________ from __________. I’m calling today because I am concerned about President Trump’s recent statements attempting to discredit the judicial branch, like referring to Judge Robart as a “so-called judge” and questioning the legitimacy of the federal court system. Historically, repressive autocrats have used similar tactics to dismantle judicial oversight. We must be vigilant in protecting the separation of powers laid out in the Constitution. I would like the Senator/Representative to publicly support the independence of the judicial branch, condemn the President’s statements, and encourage other members of Congress to do the same. Thank you.
Hello, I’m __________ from __________. I’m calling today to let the Senator know that I am very displeased with his/her vote to confirm Jeff Sessions as Attorney General. It’s clear that party loyalty got in the way of making a decision based on the best interests of the country. I will remember this vote in future elections. Sessions’ record of fighting against civil, LGBT, and human rights, and opposition to sensible immigration policy makes him a potentially dangerous Attorney General. I urge the Senator to hold the Trump administration accountable to ensuring the civil rights of all Americans.
Hello, I’m __________ from __________. I’m calling today say thank you to the Senator for representing his/her constituents’ voices and voting against the confirmation of Jeff Sessions for Attorney General. Despite the discouraging result, his/her vote instills confidence that he/she will listen to constituents and display the strongest level of commitment to civil rights, voting rights, LGBT rights, and fair immigration policy. I expect the Senator to be vigilant in protecting the rights of all citizens and holding Congress and the Executive Branch accountable for any deviation. Please keep up the great work!
Hello, I’m __________ from __________. I’m calling today to let the Senator know that I am very displeased with his/her vote to confirm Betsy DeVos as Secretary of Education. It’s clear that he/she lacked the courage to vote based on reason and honest evaluation, and instead chose to do so because of party loyalty. I will remember this vote in future elections. DeVos is one of the least qualified nominees for one of the most important cabinet positions in the country. I urge the Senator to hold this administration accountable to ensuring high-quality public education for all American children.
Hello, I’m ___________ from ____________. I’m calling today to say thank you to the Senator for representing his/her constituents’ voices and voting against the confirmation of Betsy DeVos for Secretary of Education. Despite the discouraging result, his/her vote instills confidence that he/she will listen to constituents, choose reason and honest evaluation over party loyalty, and value our input on the most important issues affecting our country. We still have lots of work to do to ensure students all over the country get equal opportunities to quality education and that our educational institutions are held accountable. Please keep up the great work!
Hello, I’m __________, and I’m calling from __________ to urge the Senator to block any Supreme Court nominee who would enable or enforce the Trump administration’s dangerous agenda. Failing to block an extremist choice could result in a court that will further undermine the Voting Rights Act, give corporations unchecked power, curb the government’s ability to fight climate change, and restrict access to reproductive health care.
For Democratic Senators: I expect the Senator to join other Senate Democrats in using the filibuster to oppose Neil Gorsuch's appointment to the Supreme Court. Our citizens, our democracy, and our entire planet depend on Senate Democrats taking an uncompromising stand. Thank you for your time.
For Republican Senators: I expect the Senator to uphold Senate rules and not obstruct the normal proceedings of the confirmation process. I am concerned that Gorsuch is an ultraconservative choice and self-proclaimed originalist who does not reflect the view of the majority of Americans. Thank you for your time.
Hello, I’m __________ from __________. I’m calling today to urge Senator/Representative __________ to do everything in his/her power to oppose President Trump’s Muslim ban. The American right to freedom of religion is clearly violated by this Executive Order. I feel that the President’s actions are irrational and dangerous because the travel ban on seven Muslim-majority countries will not make the U.S. safer from terrorism. In fact, it worsens our nation’s reputation in the world and gives ISIS an effective recruitment message. I am appalled that the U.S. government is preventing Syrian refugees from resettling in our country, a land of immigrants and religious tolerance. We need to open our arms to those in need and allow people who have been driven from their homes due to unspeakable violence to find safety here.
