Weekly Calls to Action July 3rd – July 7th

1. DEMAND JULY TOWN HALLS TO DISCUSS TRUMPCARE

Hi, my name is [NAME] and I’m a constituent from [CITY].
I’m calling to ask if Senator [SEN. NAME] is planning to host a town hall during the July recess to discuss Trumpcare and its effects on healthcare access and cost.
[IF YES] Great, I’d like to RSVP. May I please have the details?
[IF NO] I would like to request that Senator [SEN. NAME] schedule a town hall immediately. I’m very concerned about the passage of an Affordable Care Act repeal bill and what it will mean for my family and our community.
[IF non-committal to scheduling a Town Hall] Would Senator [SEN. NAME] or their healthcare legislative aide be available to meet myself and other constituents to talk about [specific element of Trumpcare you find most concerning]? We have serious concerns we’d like to discuss in depth.
Thank you for your hard work in answering the phones.

2. BLOCK LIFETIME APPOINTMENT OF JOHN K BUSH TO US COURT OF APPEALS

Hi, my name is [NAME] and I’m a constituent from [CITY].
I’m calling today because I’m highly concerned about the potential appointment of John K. Bush to the US Court of Appeals. Bush has extreme ideology and I am concerned about the quality of his decisions. I ask that Senator [SEN. NAME] vote against his appointment.
Thank you for your hard work answering the phones.

3. BLOCK DAMIEN SCHIFF FROM THE U.S. COURT

Hi, my name is [NAME] and I’m a constituent from [CITY].
I’m calling to urge Senator [SEN. NAME] to oppose Damien Schiff’s nomination to the US Court of Federal Claims. Schiff has publicly espoused extremist views that are at odds with judicial precedent and has consistently proved that he lacks the judgment and temperament to serve on a federal court.
Thank you for all your hard work answering the phones.

4. SECRETARIES OF STATE: PROTECT PERSONAL DATA FROM TRUMP’S VOTER SUPPRESSION COMMISSION

Hi, my name is [NAME] and I’m a constituent from [CITY].
[IF NO STATEMENT OR COMPLYING]: I’m calling to express deep concern about the Trump Administration’s Election Integrity Commission demand to turn over state voter rolls including personal information like Social Security number. This is clearly a push towards nationwide voter suppression, and I urge the [Secretarty of State/Governor] to protect our voting rights and ask them to deny the commission’s request.
[IF NOT COMPLYING]: I’m calling to thank the [Secretary of State/Governor] for protecting citizens from Trump’s Election Integrity Commission demand to turn over state voter rolls and personal information. This is clearly a push towards nationwide voter suppression and protecting our voter rights must be a priority for every state.
Thank you for your time and attention.

5. PROTECT THE RIGHTS OF UNACCOMPANIED IMMIGRANT CHILDREN

Hi, my name is [NAME] and I’m a constituent from [CITY].
I’m calling to urge Representative Arrington to vote against HR 495, the so-called Protection of Children Act of 2017. Not only would this bill strip unaccompanied immigrant children of their rights to counsel and weaken the ability to identify children at risk of trafficking, but it also wastes taxpayer money and government resources on the cruel and unnecessarily long detention of these children.
Thank you for your hard work answering the phones.
