Weekly Calls to Action June 5th – June 9th
1. END TRUMP’S ASSAULT ON CIVIL RIGHTS ENFORCEMENT IN FEDERAL AGENCIES
Hello. My name is [NAME], I am a US citizen living in [STATE], my zip code is [ZIP].

2. TELL ABBOTT TO COMMIT TO MAINTAINING PARIS CLIMATE STANDARDS
Hi, my name is [NAME] and I’m a constituent from [CITY]. I’m calling because I am extremely alarmed by the Trump Administration’s decision to withdraw the US from the Paris Climate Agreement, and I ask that Governor Abbott join the United States Climate Alliance with other state leaders to maintain the climate goals set forth in the agreement. Climate change is a real threat to our safety, our health and our economy, and we must do everything we can to fight it. Thank you for your time and attention.

3. SAY NO TO THE CHOICE ACT AND DEFEND DODD-FRANK REGULATIONS – VOTE THIS WEEK
Hi, my name is [Name] and I’m a constituent from [CITY]. I’m calling to express my opposition to H.R. 10, the Financial CHOICE Act of 2017, which would undermine the crucial consumer protections provided by the Dodd-Frank Act. As the 2008 recession illustrated, the banking industry must be carefully regulated to protect consumers from risky lending practices and corporate greed.
