Harris: 

Script: 

My name is ____ and my zip code is ____. I’m a member of Indivisible Yolo.

I am contacting the Senator to urge her to vote NO in the Judiciary Committee on Kavanaugh’s confirmation for the Supreme Court. His willingness to shield the President from prosecution and investigation is an insult to the separation of powers and checks and balances.

Thank Senators Feinstein and Harris for co-sponsoring S.3178, Justice for Victims of Lynching Act of 2018

Feinstein: 

Harris: 

Script:

My name is ____ and my zip code is ____. I’m a member of Indivisible Yolo.

I am contacting the Senator to thank her for cosponsoring S.3178, Justice for Victims of Lynching Act of 2018, which would make lynching a federal hate crime.

Feinstein: 

Harris: 

Scripts:

I am contacting the Senator to urge her to vote YES on the bipartisan agreement on the Opioid Crisis Response Act, S. 2680.

Ask Rep. Garamendi to support the Violence Against Women Re-authorization Act of 2018 (HB.6545).

Script:

Hi my name is ________. I am calling from ____, CA, zip code ______, and am a member of Indivisible Yolo.

The Violence Against Women Act expires on September 30 unless reauthorized by Congress. I urge Leader Pelosi to support HB6545, the Violence Against Women Re-authorization Act of 2018.

The Act has provided critical funding and support for law enforcement training, the protection, care, and treatment of victims of domestic violence and sexual assault and the creation of the National Domestic Violence Hotline and the DOJ Office on Violence Against Women. Without this support, these important programs and services will be endangered.

HB6545 expands the Act to offer protection to domestic violence victims living in public housing, provides law enforcement with more tools to remove firearms from domestic abusers who are not legally allowed to own them, increases funding for local rape prevention efforts and supports reform of current laws and policies for Native American reservations. Your support is needed to make sure this critical Act does not expire.

Script: 

Hello, my name is _______ and my zip code is _______. I am part of Indivisible Yolo.

I am calling to urge you to sign SB 822, which will reinstate net neutrality in California. Net neutrality is critical for consumers who use the internet every day, particularly underprivileged communities. Please sign SB 822 without delay.

Background:

​It’s been more than a week since California legislature passed SB822, the bill instating the most stringent net neutrality rules in the nation. Governor Jerry Brown still has not signed it.

Protecting net neutrality is important to our democracy – urge Gov. Brown to sign SB822.
