Tell Rep. Garamendi: Gun Silencers = More Deaths. “NO” on the Share Act (HR 3668)

I am calling from [zip code] to urge Rep. Garamendi to vote “NO” on the Sportsmen’s Heritage and Recreational Enhancement (SHARE) Act (HR 3668).

This bill deregulates silencers and contains a host of other alarming provisions for weakening federal gun laws. Deregulating silencers is not about protecting sportsmen’s hearing; it’s about increasing profits for gun manufacturers and making us more unsafe.


Tell Rep. Garamendi to Protect the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) Now! 

Hi, my name is _______ and I’m a constituent from zip code______ and a member of IndivisibleYolo.

I’m calling to ask the Representative to push for an immediate extension to CHIP, and to push for long term solutions by making CHIP funding permanent.

CHIP provides health insurance for 9 million children (and the program expired on September 30th, as efforts to extend it were delayed due to the awful Graham-Cassidy bill).

The need to insure children in poor and under served communities has not, and will not, diminish. It’s time to push for a more permanent solution to secure the health and wellbeing of the children in our country,

It is past time to get this done and keep those 9 million children safe, both for the immediate, and long term future.

As Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D-Ill.) says, “this is a real crisis that still can be averted in just a few minutes of time — now and not later.”

Will the Congressperson push for immediate action to extend CHIP?
