Tell Senators to oppose Gina Haspel as head of the CIA

Hi, My name is [name] and I’m a constituent from [part of state] calling about Gina Haspel’s nomination as head of the CIA.

I want {PERSON} to immediately and publicly commit to opposing this nomination. Gina Haspel carried out torture and destroyed the evidence.

Haspel is an unacceptable choice and it’s important for the senator not just to oppose her, but to use their platform to increase pressure for other senators.

Torture was, and is, illegal no matter what. There are no exceptions and it’s a crime. “Following orders” is not a justification. Additionally, her cover-up of the crimes through destruction of video evidence is enough in itself for the Senator to oppose her.


Ask State Senator Dodd to to Hold Police Accountable

Hi my name is _____ and I am a constituent from _______.

I am calling in support of Senate Bill 1421. This would force law enforcement agencies to release the details of use-of-force investigations, as well as cases of sexual assault while on duty. The only way to restore trust in our police is to be as transparent as possible.
What is Senator Dodd’s position on this bill? [wait for answer]

I’ve called/written before on this issue and don’t understand why the Senator hasn’t taken a position on this good government measure.


Tell Assemblymember Cecilia Aguiar-Curry to Fix Our Broken Bail system

Hello, my name is ____ and I am calling from zip code _______.

I’m calling today to ask the Assemblymember to support SB 10 which would reform our broken bail system. I’m in favor of eliminating the unfair cash bail system and replacing it with a system that truly enhances public safety.
What is Aguiar-Curry’s position on this? (wait for answer)

if no position:
Do you know when she will have a position? I want the release of those in jail based on public safety, not based on who has the most money. Bonus script: I also wanted to ask about her position on AB 931. This bill states that police should attempt to de-escalate situations before resorting to deadly force. Has the Assemblymember taken a position on this bill? [wait for answer]


Tell Rep. Garamendi to Protect Families from Getting Separated at Border

Hello, my name is _____ and I am calling from zip code ______.

I am devastated to hear reports that our country has separated more than 700 children from their refugee parents since October. That’s against my American/religious/human values. I urge Rep. Garamendi to co-sponsor the Help Separated Families Act of 2018 (H.R. 5414) to stop this inhumane practice. Can I count on the Representative to do that?


Thank Senators for Opposing Pompeo for Secretary of State

Hello, my name is ______, and I am calling from zip code ______.

It was very disappointing to see the Senate approved Pompeo for Secretary of State, but I was please to see that the Senator opposed. We win some and we lose some but please thank the Senator for putting up a good fight.


Tell Rep. Garamendi to oppose the Farm Bill

Hi, my name is _______ and I’m a constituent from zip code______ and a member of Indivisible. I’m calling to ask Rep. Garamendi to oppose the Republican Farm Bill, currently making its way through the House. It Is a disaster.

It’s one thing to help farmers. It’s another thing entirely to wage war on public health. The Farm Bill would not only impose work requirements on SNAP (the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, or food stamps), creating a bureaucratic nightmare and forcing hungry people to lose coverage. It would also loosen restrictions on pesticides, even going so far as to make it illegal for local governments to pass their own laws regarding pesticide use. This is a give-away to industry players at the expense of American lives. It must be opposed.

Will Rep. Garamendi oppose the Farm Bill?

Thank you!
