Hi <<First Name>>,

The 2020 election was two weeks ago, and Republicans are still refusing to fully acknowledge that Joe Biden won the presidency. Some, like Sen. Lindsey Graham, have even gone so far as to pressure elected officials to throw out legally cast ballots. This is vile and absurd.

So this week, we're calling on our Congressmen and Senators to turn up the heat on their GOP colleagues. Democrats need to be loudly talking about how the GOP reluctance to accept valid election results undermines our country and government. Republicans should be ashamed of themselves for playing along with President Trump. Democrats need to stop playing nice and stand up for our country! Scripts below.

Regarding Georgia work, we are in the middle of planning a text and phone bank operation to help folks get involved. We'll have more information once that is up and running. In the meantime, check out these links: Thank you and good luck!

Below is our script for the week. Not everyone likes to read from the script, and that's OK! For those not adhering closely to it, the underlined parts are some key points that you should try to work into your discussion.

Remember!
  • Always say your name and the city and zip code you are calling from.
  • Discuss one issue per phone call or email. If you want to discuss multiple issues, it's best to make multiple calls/emails.
  • If you get a busy signal, that means your colleagues are doing a good job of sending our message. Try to call back later, call a different day, or send an email.
Script
Step 1: Hi, I'm [NAME] and I live in [ZIP CODE]. I'm part of Indivisible Montgomery and I'd like to leave a message.

Step 2: Joe Biden won the 2020 election, and it is shameful that most of your Republican colleagues have yet to publicly acknowledge that. And it is revolting that some Republicans are urging elected officials to discard entirely valid ballots. Will the [Congressman/Senator] speak out against these Republican efforts to undermine our electoral system?

Step 3: (If the response is along the lines of "The Congressman/Senator has said several times...") Great! He should keep saying it and say it louder. This is important and shouldn't be relegated to tweets and press releases.
After-hours activism
Some of you aren't able to make phone calls or send emails during the workday. That's fine! You can still make your voice heard either by calling the office and leaving a voice message or by sending an email. These are still effective ways to get our point across, and you should take the time to do it!

Federal employees
If you are a federal employee, you still have the right to make your voice heard as a constituent. However, there are a few restrictions you need to pay attention to. This article has some helpful information on how to be an activist while being a federal employee. You are part of an important constituency with an important viewpoint. Exercise your rights to make your voice heard!
Your support for our work will be critical to making the change we need in 2020. Please consider giving to Indivisible Montgomery today!
