PLEASE feel free to use these scripts to call your members of Congress and tell them to support both.
I modified the phone script that Indivisible put together for Joaquin Castro’s Resolution to terminate the fake national emergency declared by the current occupant of the White House – Donald Trump. I also modified the phone script for the Green New Deal – the House & Senate resolution designed to join in the fight against climate change and for our planet and our country. Both are below.
It is time to go on the offensive, fight for our country and demand that the people whose salaries we pay do their jobs for the good of the country!
Castro’s Resolution to Terminate the Fake National Emergency
Hi! My name is ______________, I am a constituent who lives in (town or county), (state) – (zip code and phone number). I am horrified that Trump abused his power to declare a fake emergency rooted in hate. I am also appalled that you and other members of Congress are not as outraged as the voters of this country.
The President is going around Congress and the will of the people to get his way on his racist and unnecessary wall and deportation force. You MUST do everything in your authority to stop this power grab. Do you commit to supporting Texas Congressman Joaquin Castro’s Resolution H. Res. 144 to terminate this false emergency? Do you support the call for investigations into this abuse of power? am looking to you and Congress to stop him.
The Green New Deal
Hi! My name is ______________, I am a constituent who lives in (town or county), (state) – (zip code and phone number). I urge you to co-sponsor the House & Senate resolution being called the Green New Deal – H.Res.109/S.Res.59.
Our country, the one you work for and I live in, needs a solution like the Green New Deal to address the threat posed by the climate crisis and to help put people back to work, repair our infrastructure and renew our commitment to this planet that we call home.
This bill has support in both the House and the Senate. Climate change is an urgent issue that requires action. We don’t have much time to reverse the damage we are doing to our country and our planet. I expect you to be part of the solution not one of the hogs bellying up to the trough for a bit more money. We need to prevent catastrophic levels of global warming. I expect your boss, my employee, to reconsider their position.
Please join the fight.
