We’ve Got Two Senators Again – Call Them!
We’ve got two, two, two California Senators again! And this week, we’re asking you to contact both of them, with a targeted message for each. It’s our first action alert for Senator Alex Padilla — former Senator Kamala Harris being otherwise occupied — but it won’t be our last. The action is also here on our site — pass it on!
Deadline: NOW – Please welcome brand-new Senator Alex Padilla and tell him we want him to fight for our priorities, including democracy reform and eliminating the filibuster! Good news: Padilla has already cosponsored H.R. 51, statehood for Washington, DC, which is part of the democracy reform ask.
What to say:My name is ________, my zip code is ________, and I’m a member of Indivisible East Bay. I’m calling to welcome Senator Padilla. I hope the Senator will work with progressive groups to undo the damage done by the Trump Administration. I want to thank him for supporting statehood for Washington DC. I want him to fight for democracy reform with H.R.1 and to help abolish the filibuster. I look forward to being in touch.
Next, tell our senior Senator Dianne Feinstein that it’s unacceptable for her to praise the “leadership” of Ted Cruz and Josh Hawley, her colleagues who supported the January 6 insurrectionists who stormed the Capitol and tried to stop the certification of the Presidential election.
What to say:My name is _____________, my zip code is __________, and I’m a member of Indivisible East Bay. I’m disgusted that Senator Feinstein has praised Ted Cruz and Josh Hawley and other Senators who tried to stop the vote count in the Jan. 6 attempted coup. Even Mitch McConnell did better than she did. I want Senator Feinstein to speak out against Senators who supported Trump’s attempts at insurrection and insist on investigations, hearings and penalties for these traitors.

We Could Not Make This Up
Former-Occupant-in-Chief’s meager response in his impeachment trial pouts to the “Unites States Senate” that he DID NOT incite a mob to insurrection. Not our typo — it’s how his filing addressed the, er, United States Senate. The devil, they say, is in the details. Or is the devil making them do it — that is, making GOP Reps vote for impeachment? Speak of the devil, the Satanic Temple is fighting a fabulously creative fight for reproductive rights in Florida, but you know things are gonna get hella “loony” when Marjorie Taylor Greene (Q-GA) goes to the Sunshine State to visit Trump. We’re just glad a little rain’s gonna fall to protect us from secret space lasers.
