STEP UP AND LEAD!
Dear Member of Congress,
If the administration has kept its promise (never a sure thing), the redacted Mueller report will be delivered today. It likely adds more evidence to Trump’s monumental lawlessness, cruelty, and racism. Imagine what an unredacted report could tell us.
If past is prologue, nothing will change unless you step up and lead.
Business as usual must stop today. If the lone protest of a 15-year-old Swedish autistic girl can ignite a global movement to save the Earth, what’s stopping you from leading the charge to save our Democracy?
We ask you to:
- Subpoena everything
- Demonstrate that the rule of law applies to everyone
- Go to the border and child prisons
- Stand shoulder to shoulder with Representative Omar
- Join protests at places named Trump
- Call for and lead a general strike
- Practice civil disobedience and go to jail if necessary
“There comes a time when
silence is betrayal.”
(Martin Luther King, Jr)
**ACTION ONE: CALL OUR SENATORS**
SAMPLE SCRIPT FOR SENATORS WYDEN AND MERKLEY:
“My name is [–] and I’m a constituent from [town/city], Oregon [zip code]. I am calling because…
Today’s redacted Mueller report will reveal more evidence that Trump is destroying our democracy. Speeches in the Senate won’t cut it anymore. We need bold leaders now. Join protesters at the border, stand (physically) with Representative Omar, call for a general strike, practice civil disobedience.
Portland: (503) 326-7525, DC: (202) 224-5244
Salem: (503) 589-4555, Eugene: (541) 431-0229
Medford: (541) 858-5122, Bend: (541) 330-9142
La Grande: (541) 960-7691
Portland: (503) 326-3386, DC: (202) 224-3753
Salem: (503) 362-8102, Eugene: (541) 465-6750
Medford: (541) 608-9102, Bend: (541) 318-1298
Pendleton: (541) 278-1129
**ACTION TWO: CALL COMPLICIT GREG WALDEN**
SAMPLE SCRIPT FOR WALDEN:
“My name is [–] and I’m a constituent from [town/city], Oregon [zip code]. I am calling because . . .
Today’s redacted Mueller report will reveal more evidence that Trump is destroying our democracy, apparently with Greg Walden’s blessing. We need bold leaders now. Greg has more freedom in the House than those in the Senate. Use it. Crank out subpoenas and if they are ignored, show Trump the rule of law has teeth. Join protesters at the border, stand (physically) with Representative Omar, call for a general strike, practice civil disobedience.
Will he lead the fight to save American democracy?
Maybe Greg should try telling us the truth: Does he, or does he not stand with Trump? His actions suggest he’s a Trump loyalist. His silence is consent.
