***Today’s Call To Action***
Vote BLUE for Compassion
When someone shows — not tells, rather, shows — you who they are, believe it. Joe Biden and Kamala Harris have shown us they care; their compassion is genuine. They:
- Will improve our healthcare
- Believe in science
- Will reduce student loan debt
- Have a plan to tackle COVID-19
- Have an economic recovery plan that includes green jobs
Trump and his GOP only care about themselves and their rich donors. They:
- Kidnap children from their parents – whose only “crime” is moving for a better life
- Take funding away from newborns and COVID-19 patients in blue cities
- Install unfit Supreme Court justices to take away our healthcare, voting rights, abortion rights
- Refuse to pass COVID-19 relief, letting the virus run rampant, putting all of us at risk
We want a President who cares for all of us – no matter who we are, or how much we donate.
COVID Relief NOW!
Stop SCOTUS Confirmation!
Get Out the BLUE Vote!
**ACTION ONE: CALL OUR U.S. SENATORS**
SAMPLE SCRIPT FOR SENATORS MERKLEY and WYDEN:
“My name is [–] and I’m a constituent from [city], Oregon [zip code].
We want a President who cares for all of us – no matter who we are or how much we donate. I ask the Senator to:
- Keep pushing for COVID relief
- Publicly state that will make sure every vote is counted this election season and that he will stop Trump’s attempts to cheat and stop the vote count
- Do all he can to delay confirmation of a Supreme Court nominee until after the inauguration

**ACTION TWO: CALL COMPLICIT GREG WALDEN**
SAMPLE SCRIPT FOR WALDEN:
“My name is [–] and I’m a constituent from [town/city], Oregon [zip code].
We want a President who cares for all of us – no matter who we are or how much we donate. Tell Greg Walden that he should:
- Work for COVID relief
- Publicly pledge that every vote must be counted this election season
- Stand up for what is right and wait to confirm a Supreme Court nominee until after the inauguration
Silence is complicity.
**ACTION THREE: BE AN ACTIVIST**
October 23, 12:30 p.m. – 1:00 p.m.
Ongoing every Monday, Wednesday and Friday
#MyORHealth Support is available for Oregon’s “helpers”
Lines for Life has created a Virtual Wellness Room to offer support to helpers, mental health professionals, first responders, social workers and anyone considered an essential worker during the COVID-19 pandemic in Oregon. Each check-in call will have a facilitator to guide the conversation.
“We at Lines for Life want to thank you for all the work you do to keep our communities safe,” the organization said. “We are offering a place for helpers to exchange stories of hope and areas of need. We especially want to hear what things are coming up for you personally and explore how we can cheer one another on to continue the good work you are already doing. We ultimately want to create space to breathe out stress and breathe in hope.”
The meetings are held using Zoom conference calls from 12:30 p.m. to 1 p.m. every Monday, Wednesday and Friday at this link: https://zoom.us/j/4848426773. Please share this invite with anyone in your network of Oregon helpers.
November 4 @ 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm
