Weekly Calls to Action (June 12th – June 16th)

1. OPPOSE GOV. ABBOTT’S EXTREMIST AGENDA

Gov. Abbott’s special session agenda constitutes an assault on women, schoolchildren, and transgender Texans. Specifically, he wants to pass laws that fund school vouchers, drive our transgender neighbors out of public spaces and public life, and severely restrict a woman’s constitutional right to abortion access. It’s unfair, unwelcome, and un-Texan. These measures did not pass during the regular session, and with your opposition they won’t pass now. It’s not too late to do the right thing.

2. DEMAND FULL TRANSPARENCY ON THE SENATE AHCA BILL

Hi, my name is [NAME] and I’m a constituent from [CITY].
I’m calling today because I’m appalled by the Republican attempts to pass the AHCA without any transparency what so ever. I ask that [SEN. NAME] demand the immediate release of the plan’s details to the public and hold a hearing to thoroughly discuss a healthcare plan that affects one-sixth of our economy and the health and lives of millions of Americans.

3. TELL YOUR REPRESENTATIVE TO VOTE NO ON THE VERIFY FIRST ACT (H.R. 2581)

Hi, my name is [NAME] and I’m a constituent from [CITY]. I’m calling to ask the senator to vote no on H.R. 2581. The Verify First Act is both an anti-Affordable Care Act and an anti-immigrant bill. The bill would deprive ELIGIBLE immigrant families, including those with citizen kids, from accessing the ACA and seeing a doctor when they get sick. It also would hurt the ACA by keeping young, healthy, immigrants from participating in the marketplaces, something which helps keep premiums down for everyone. HR 2581 is Anti-Immigrant. This is a dangerous bill that puts up roadblocks for both citizens and immigrants to obtain timely, affordable health insurance.

4. DEMAND ALL TRUMP-RUSSIA FINDINGS BE MADE PUBLIC

Hi, my name is [NAME] and I’m a constituent from [CITY]. I’m calling to ask that [REP./SEN. NAME] support the creation of an independent commission on the Trump-Russia matters. Neither special counselor Mueller nor the congressional committee investigations are leading to public, unclassified answers about any possible wrongdoings that may have occurred, and the American people deserve to know what really happened. Thank you for your time and attention.

5. HELP FORMERLY INCARCERATED PEOPLE OBTAIN EMPLOYMENT

Hi, my name is [NAME] and I’m a constituent from [CITY]. I’m calling to urge [SEN. NAME] to support S.842, the Fair Chance Act, which would prevent most federal employers from practicing hiring discrimination against formerly incarcerated people. By reducing unemployment, this bill will help formerly incarcerated people find productive work and reintegrate into society. Thank you for your hard work answering the phones.
