Urge Rep. Garamendi to Co-sponsor Medicare for All

Hi, my name is ____ and I’m calling from [city], my zipcode is ____, and I’m a member of Indivisible Yolo. I’m calling to urge the Representative to co-sponsor Rep.

Tell Assm. Aguiar-Curry to support Clean Cars by 2040

Hi, my name is _____ and I’m a constituent from zip code _____ and a member of Indivisible. I’m calling to ask Assemblymember Aguiar-Curry to support AB 40, the Clean Cars 2040 Strategy, in her role as a member of the Committee on Transportation.

The crisis is upon us. In its most recent report, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change gave us a decade to take decisive action to reduce carbon emissions. If we fail, the consequences will be devastating for our children and grandchildren. AB 40 addresses a critical part of the challenge for California: developing the path for a quick transition to Zero Emission Vehicles. The path must be articulated by 2021 and maintain a target of eliminating the sale of any new gas-powered vehicles in the state by 2040. This is a critical goal and the bill mandates the necessary first step to getting there. I urge Assemblymember Aguiar-Curry to support it.

Thank Rep. Garamendi for Co-sponsoring the Green New Deal

Hi, my name is ____ and I’m a constituent from zip code_____ and a member of Indivisible. I’m calling to thank Rep. Garamendi for signing on as a co-sponsor of the Green New Deal, the most critical legislative framework of our time.

In co-sponsoring the Green New Deal, the Representative is leading the way to save our species from extinction and to save our nation from crushing inequality. The GND framework is bold and broad – exactly what we need at this dangerous moment. I urge the Representative to continue to push to keep the Green New Deal strong and ambitious. Nothing less will save us.

I would also like to urge the Congressman to encourage Speaker Pelosi to support this bill, and bring it to the floor for a vote.
