Hello Indivisibles,

It seems like every day we see a new outrageous action from the Trump administration. But in these last two weeks before voting ends, nothing has changed: we’re still working to get out the vote.

In the meantime, we’re also asking our Senators to fight for us on coronavirus relief, and we need them to block the appointment of a right-wing extremist to the Supreme Court.

This week, our actions are:

Fight for coronavirus relief
We need our Senators to stay strong on coronavirus relief. Republicans are trying to give businesses a liability waver if they get their workers sick during the pandemic. Additionally, Trump is pushing to make the money a slush fund, where he gets to spend the money however he likes (even if it’s not on coronavirus).
Scroll down for the call script and phone numbers.

Defend the Supreme Court
With the Judiciary Committee vote scheduled for October 22nd, we need Senators Harris and Feinstein to use any tactics available to delay a committee vote which would allow the process of confirmation to proceed.
Scroll down for the call script and phone numbers.

Ditch Mitch
With only two weeks before voting ends, it’s time to pull out all the stops to oust Mitch McConnell as Senate majority leader. If we flip four Senate seats, we’ll take away his power to block Biden judicial nominees. Training is provided in the five weekly phonebanks that can be found on our calendar. If you’re an experienced caller and would like to call on your own at a time that’s convenient to you, just start with the Linktree: linktr.ee/CT2020

Protect the Results
If we want to avoid helping Trump suppress the vote and demobilize his detractors, we have to be clear when we talk about this: Trump has not succeeded in rigging the election, and he hasn’t stolen it. No, what he’s is up to is he is trying to cheat. He’s doing this from a place of weakness, not strength. And he won’t get away with it. Why? If he tries any weak justifications of his claim that the election is a fraud, we take to the streets in a mass peaceful demonstration.

Take care, and take action!

Save the Date! General Meeting will be Oct. 26th at 7pm


This is it, the last general meeting before the election we have been working toward for four years. As we head into the final week, we will be gearing up for our final push to get out the vote and planning for protecting the results of the election in the event that Trump tries to pull any anti-democratic shenanigans. Zoom link: https://us02web.zoom.us


Action: Tell your Senators – Block Trump from filling Justice Ginsburg’s seat!

Sample Call Script for Sen. Harris and Feinstein:
Hi, my name is [YOUR NAME] and I am a constituent from [CITY/ZIP CODE]. I am calling once again to remind Senator Harris/Feinstein how critical it is to block the confirmation of Trump’s nominee to the Supreme Court. A Supreme Court that includes Barrett could do so much damage to the hard-won gains made in reproductive rights, healthcare, LGBTQ rights, voting rights, environmental protections and much more. Please use every means possible, including denying a quorum and any other procedural means, to delay and block this confirmation until after the inauguration!

Additional for Sen. Feinstein: Sen. Feinstein needs to stop assisting Republicans! I’m disappointed that she praised a sham process, lending it false legitimacy, and hugged Lindsay Graham, without a mask on, giving a terrible example in the midst of a pandemic and boosting a GOP Senator in a tight race. She should step down as the ranking Democrat on the Judiciary.
 

Action: Tell our Senators to continue to fight for a fair coronavirus relief bill

Sample Call Script for Sen. Harris and Feinstein:
Hi, my name is [YOUR NAME] and I am a constituent from [CITY/ZIP CODE]. I am calling to urge Senator Harris/Feinstein to stay strong in the fight for a coronavirus relief bill including: holding out for adequate funding, keeping testing and tracing in the bill. Please do NOT let them waive liability for businesses and do NOT let it be a slush fund of money to be spent without oversight. So many people are hurting because of the Trump administration’s failed response to the pandemic. We need you to ensure that Congress passes a bill that will actually make a difference and address the critical needs.
