Until the November 3rd Election
DEMAND TRUMP FIRE
ARCHITECT OF HATE
Trump has transformed our government into one that can and does abuse anyone who is not white, including migrants from Central America and those from what he calls “shithole countries.” Trump’s racist history is long and painful, but it’s best captured in a photograph of a dead child washed up on a riverbank in Texas clutching her dead father.
Ask the experts on racism. A Washington Post-Ipsos survey found 8 in 10 black Americans believe Trump is a racist. The impact: only 16% said black children today have a good shot at the American dream. White supremicist Stephen Miller is the architect of Trump’s hateful racist policies.
We care because:
- Cruelty must not stand as an official American policy.
- Trump is pitting Americans against one other by color and religion, dividing us for his own political purposes.
- Trump is rolling back civil rights.
- Hate crimes are increasing.
- Fear and anxiety permeate the classrooms of children of color.
We strongly believe that diversity strengthens our communities and the nation. Turning our heads to look the other way is not an option. Please make your voices heard.
“Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.” (Dr. MLK, Jr.)
**ACTION ONE: CALL OUR SENATORS**
SAMPLE SCRIPT FOR SENATORS MERKLEY AND WYDEN:
“My name is [–] and I’m a constituent from [town/city], Oregon [zip code]. I am calling today. . .
. . . to support you as you continue to fight for a fair impeachment trial. At the same time, we can’t overlook the ongoing cruelty inflicted by Trump’s racism, so I urge you to demand Stephen Miller’s removal as well.

**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 today because. . .
. . . I remain outraged that Greg voted against impeaching Trump. Now, more than ever, I challenge him to speak out forcefully for a fair impeachment trial in the Senate, one that includes witnesses and documents. At the same time, I will not overlook the ongoing cruelty inflicted by Trump’s racism. Please tell Greg that he should, as a matter of conscience, demand Stephen Miller’s removal.
Even after announcing his retirement, Greg continues to signal his full support for trumpism, regardless of how much damage Trump is doing to our democracy and to world stability. Know that we are still here and will continue working to flip ORD2 Blue in 2020.
