2. OPPOSE NOMINATION OF BIRTHER AND CLIMATE CHANGE DENIER SAM CLOVIS

Hi, my name is [NAME] and I’m a constituent from [CITY].
I’m calling to express my opposition to Sam Clovis’s nomination to be USDA Under Secretary. It is unacceptable for the USDA’s top scientist to be a climate change denier with no formal scientific training, and for the Trump administration to continue endorsing racism and bigotry by appointing a birther. I strongly urge Senator [Cornyn/Cruz] to reject Clovis’s nomination.
Thank you for your time and attention.

3. STOP DHS FROM IGNORING THE THREAT OF WHITE DOMESTIC TERRORISM

Hi, my name is [NAME] and I’m a citizen from [CITY].
I’m calling to express my grave concern that the Countering Violent Extremism program canceled a grant to Life After Hate, and may redirect focus away from the threat of white supremacy. As we saw in Virginia, the threat of white supremacy and domestic terrorism is real and rising in this country, and I ask that the department maintain a robust focus on countering this threat.
Thank you for your time and attention.

4. CALL YOUR SENATOR AND ASK THEM WHAT THEY PLAN TO DO TO STOP TRUMP FROM STARTING A WAR WITH NORTH KOREA.

Hello. My name is (NAME), I am a US citizen living in (STATE), my zip code is (ZIP). President Trump’s statement about responding to North Korea with “fire and fury” is yet another example of his increasingly erratic behavior, insecurity, bombastic and arrogant nature, and complete inability to wield the power of his office.
I am calling to ask what the Senator is planning to do to demand the President adhere to the Constitution and the War Powers Act, which gives Congress the sole power to declare war and outlines the steps the President must take before committing US troops to armed conflict?
The Senator/Staffer ARTICULATES A CLEAR, ACTIONABLE PLAN TO ADDRESS PRESIDENT TRUMP’S STATEMENTS REGARDING WAR WITH NORTH KOREA:
Please thank the Senator for understanding that the United States is standing on a dangerous precipice, with millions of lives at stake, and that the President must be held accountable for statements that could lead the US into a war with the potential to devastate peace around the world.
The Senator/Staffer CANNOT ARTICULATE A CLEAR, ACTIONABLE PLAN TO ADDRESS PRESIDENT TRUMP’S STATEMENTS REGARDING WAR WITH NORTH KOREA:
The President has not only demonstrated increasingly erratic behavior, but has shown he has no respect for the rule of law or the separation of powers set forth in the US Constitution. By failing to hold President Trump accountable to his office, the Senator is failing the people of this country that depend on them, and the world, that depends on the United States to play its role in promoting peaceful solutions to conflicts between itself and other nations.
