Hi <<First Name>>,

In addition to our regular weekly actions (below), we have a chance to protest! Several groups are organizing the "Political funeral for those lost to COVID-19" TOMORROW, Wednesday, May 20, at 5pm.

This is a driving protest, where cars will drive by the White House around 5pm on Wednesday to protest the administration's breathtakingly incompetent and cavalier response to the COVID-19 pandemic sweeping the country.

Drive your car. Wear a mask. And protest!

Good luck,

Chris Pickett

At the end of last week, the House approved voting by proxy and virtual committee meetings. It looks like House Democrats may finally get back to work!

The calls this week are straightforward--investigate this administration! From the firings of inspectors general to the mismanagement of federal benefits for Americans in need to the utterly incompetent response to COVID-19, the House must expose the corruption of the administration. Scripts below!

And when you're done with that, don't forget to: Thank you and good luck!

Chris Pickett

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: The Trump administration is bungling the response to the coronavirus and firing the people meant to hold the administration accountable to the American people. The House must launch investigations to get the bottom of each of these scandals and expose the corruption of the Trump administration. Will the Congressman push his committees to launch immediate investigations?
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!
