Tell Garamendi to fight for net neutrality

I’m calling from [zip code] to ask Rep. Garamendi to do anything in his power to stop the FCC from killing net neutrality and the strong Title II oversight of Internet Service Providers.

Preserving an open internet is crucial for fair and equal access to the resources and information available on it.


Tell senators to vote NO and slow down the Tax Scam bill

My name is ________ and I am a constituent of the Senator  in the _______ zip code. I am also a member of IndivisibleYolo. I am calling to ask the Senator to do everything in her power to block the terrible tax bill being pushed through Congress by the GOP.

This bill is a scam that will give massive tax cuts to the wealthy, paid for by increasing taxes on ordinary taxpayers and by forcing deep cuts to critical programs like Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security. This bill represents a massive transfer of wealth from poor and middle class taxpayers to the richest individuals and corporations. It is especially harmful to states like California, by eliminating SALT (state and local tax) deductions, mortgage interest and property tax deductions, and programs that fund affordable housing.

I hope the Senator will continue her work on all fronts to avoid this tax bill becoming law. 


Tell Garamendi to renew funding for the CHIP Program

Hello! My name is [ name ] and I’m calling from [area].

I’m calling to ask that Rep. Garamendi support reauthorization of the Children’s Health Insurance Program immediately. The Children’s Health Insurance Program ensures nearly 9 million children have health insurance. CHIP is a federal-state partnership where the federal government provides most—or in some cases, all—of the funding necessary to cover uninsured children. This is an important and necessary program that protects our children.
