Issue of the week

Our unalienable rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness are under attack from Trump and his GOP. 

–Our lives are under attack as our safety net is being ripped away. 

–Our liberty is under attack from Trump’s judicial nominees who are unqualified judges that attack women’s rights, LGBTQ rights, and worker rights. 

–Our pursuit of happiness is under attack as families are torn apart at the border, kept in detention indefinitely, and suffer the abuse at the hands of our government.

This Congress must declare its independence. Or we will vote in one that will. 

SAMPLE SCRIPT –for Senators:  

“My name is [–] and I’m a constituent from [zip code]. I am calling to because I am concerned we are no longer a nation where people have the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.  On this holiday week I ask the senator to 1) save our lives by protecting our safety net with a fair farm bill and defending our healthcare 2) save our liberty by refusing to vote on any SCOTUS nominee until January 2019 and while Trump is under investigation, and 3) save our pursuit of happiness by working to immediately reunite all families separated at the border and end family detention.  Thank you. 

SAMPLE SCRIPT –for our Representatives:  

“My name is [–] and I’m a constituent from [zip code]. I am calling to because I am concerned we are no longer a nation where people have the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.  On this holiday week I ask the Representative to 1) save our lives by protecting our safety net with a fair farm bill and preventing the budget passed out committee from coming to a floor vote  2) save our liberty by going on record saying there should be no to vote on any SCOTUS nominee until January 2019 and while Trump is under investigation, and 3) save our pursuit of happiness by working to immediately reunite all families separated at the border and end family detention.  Thank you.”

Actions: DEFEND THE SENATE 

We need to fight like hell to stop Mitch McConnell from getting Trump’s SCOTUS nominee approved before the midterms. And while we are doing this, we need to work on defending the Senate.  Please choose one or two vulnerable blue senators in red states and do something every month to help them win.  Check out www.roadto2018.com for the candidates and more details.
