PROTECT OUR DEMOCRACY
KEEP US SAFE
Americans are participating in the most consequential election of our time, giving us the opportunity to change the country’s direction and limit the inhumanity championed by the leadership of the Republican party—Trump, McConnell, Ryan and . . .
This election is spotlighting the outrageous behavior by Republican candidates at all levels. With nothing positive to offer, they paint all Democrats and progressives as evil, attack the media and stoke fears against “the other”—including people of color, immigrants, Muslims, Jews, women and the LGBTQ community.
The abusive verbal attacks seem to be inciting the Trump regime’s base:
- A fervent Trumpist mailed bombs to prominent Dems and news outlets, which could have killed many innocent people
- A white supremacist tried to attack a church in Kentucky, then murdered two black people nearby
- An anti-immigrant, anti-Semite killed 11 Jewish people worshipping in a Pittsburg synagogue
To defeat this bigotry and fear-mongering, we must continue to tell our Members of Congress to protect and strengthen our democracy by:
- Passing a new Voting Rights Act, promoting voter turnout and protecting elections from cyber threats
- Opposing Trump’s judicial nominees who are hostile to voting rights
- Censuring Trump and his enablers for what they’ve unleashed
And, We The People must . . .
Work Non-Stop to Get Out The BLUE VOTE!
**ACTION ONE: CALL OUR SENATORS**
My name is [–] and I’m a constituent and voter from [city/town], Oregon [ZIP code]. I am calling because I am deeply concerned that the Republicans will continue their relentless push to transform the federal courts in the image of the Federalist Society by confirming all pending judicial nominees and failing to stop the Trump regime’s hateful fear-mongering rhetoric that seems to encourage violent acts. I’m asking the Senator to do all he can to (1) protect our elections by passing a new Voting Rights Act that promotes voter turnout and guards against cyber attacks, (2) continue working to defeat Trump’s judicial nominees, and (3) censure Trump and his enablers for the hatred and cruelty they’ve unleashed. Thank you.”

**ACTION TWO: CALL COMPLICIT GREG WALDEN**
SAMPLE SCRIPT FOR WALDEN:
“My name is [Name]. I am a constituent and voter living in [city/town], ZIP code [number]. I’m calling because I believe that Republicans will continue their relentless push to stifle our democracy and fail to stop the Trump regime’s hateful fear-mongering rhetoric that seems to encourage violent acts. Please tell Greg that I hold him personally responsible for the regime’s excesses. His silence SCREAMS CONSENT. I [have already voted] [will vote] for Jamie McLeod-Skinner in order to put a true representative of the people in Oregon Congressional District 2 in Washington. It’s long past time for Greg to retire.”
