Weekly Calls to Action May 22nd – May 26th

1. CALL YOUR MEMBER OF CONGRESS AT AND RAISE THE ALARM ABOUT TRUMP’S BUDGET PROPOSAL.

Hello. My name is [NAME], I am a US citizen living in [STATE], my zip code is [ZIP]. I’m calling to let the Representative know that I’m opposed to Trump’s budget and they should be as well. This budget will gut assistance to some of the most vulnerable in our country including children, the disabled, and the poor. Can I count on the Representative to stand up for those who are voiceless and vulnerable and oppose a budget that will allow people to starve in one of the wealthiest nations in the world?

2. STOP THE ENABLING OF TRUMP’S MASS DEPORTATION AGENDA (HR 2431)

Hi, my name is [NAME] and I’m a constituent from [CITY].
[IF COMMITTEE, ADD: I’d like to leave a message for the Chairman and members of the committee.]
I’m calling today because I’m extremely concerned about the expansion of Trump’s mass deportation agenda through H.R.2431, the Davis-Oliver Act, and I ask that [REP/SEN NAME OR COMMITTEE] vote against this harmful bill.
OPTIONAL: Share a personal story about why this matters to you, for example:
— I am an immigrant (and/or have immigrants in my family) that works hard to support my family and community, and I fear [I/they] will be targeted for harassment if this bill passes.
— Immigrants are an integral part of my workplace and community and they do not deserve unfair harassment.
— I believe diversity benefits us all and targeting of immigrant communities harms us all.
Thank you for your time and attention.

3. TELL CONGRESS AND HHS: OUR HEALTHCARE IS NOT A POLITICAL BARGAINING CHIP

Hi, my name is [NAME] and I’m a citizen from [CITY]. I’m calling to express my outrage that the Trump administration is considering withholding cost-sharing reduction payments from insurance companies. I urge [Tom Price or Sen/Rep. Name] to support the continuation of these payments to keep the individual insurance market stable. The American people want the Affordable Care Act to be repaired, not sabotaged to score political points. Thank you for your time and attention.
