Calls to congress 

For Senators: “My name is [Name]. I am a constituent and I and live in ZIP code [number]. I am calling because I am deeply concerned that in the lame duck session the GOP will try to cut our safety net and taxes while trying to fund a wall and rush the confirmation of judges. I ask that the Senator to all he can in the lame duck session to 1) protect our healthcare and safety net 2) stop a new tax cut and border wall funding 3) stop any judges from being confirmed. Thank you.”
