Weekly Calls to Action July 31st – August 4th

1. DENOUNCE TRUMP’S BAN ON TRANSGENDER TROOPS

Hi, my name is [NAME] and I’m a constituent from [CITY].
I’m calling to ask Rep. Jodey C. Arrington to denounce Donald Trump’s recent Twitter announcement that the US military will no longer allow transgender troops to serve. Transgender Americans should have the right to serve their country while receiving the gender confirmation therapy they need. It is unacceptable for Trump to strip them of these rights in a series of tweets.

2. DEFEND THE DACA PROGRAM WITH THE DREAM ACT

Hi, my name is [NAME] and I’m a constituent from [CITY].
[IF CALLING REP/SEN]: I’m calling to express my support for the DREAM Act and the thousands of Dreamers who contribute to our society. I urge [REP/SEN NAME] to support this bipartisan effort to protect the DACA program and to put an end to the fear these young immigrants are living in. Thank you.
[IF CALLING AG]: I’m calling to express my serious concern that [AG NAME] has joined the legal threat against the DACA program. Dreamers in school, in the workforce, or who are veterans contribute greatly to our society and should be given a path to citizenship, not deported. I urge the Attorney General to remove themselves from this legal challenge. Thank you.

3. RETURN TO REGULAR ORDER TO REPAIR THE ACA

Hi, my name is [NAME] and I’m a constituent from [CITY].
I’m calling to encourage Senator John Cornyn to abandon their ACA repeal efforts and instead advocate for a bipartisan approach to healthcare reform in committee hearings and regular legislative order. The Senate has wasted too much time on unpopular and failing repeal plans when the majority of Americans want the ACA repaired.

4. PROTECT PUBLIC SCHOOL FUNDING AND STUDENT LOAN PROTECTIONS

Hi, my name is [NAME] and I’m a constituent from [CITY].
I’m calling to urge [REP/SEN NAME] to reject the Trump administration’s proposed budget cuts to the education department.
OPTIONAL: Share a personal story or reason why this matters to you. For example:
— I (or someone close to you) am a product of the public school system, and I think more effort should be spent on improving it, not abandoning it.
— I (or someone close to you) needed federal assistance to pay for higher education, and I support the programs that make it easier for students to do so and protect them from abuse by lending companies.
— It is important to me that my children (or young people close to you) have access to arts (or science, foreign language, etc.) education in their schools, and do not want to see those programs dismantled.
Thank you for your time and attention.
