***Today’s Call To Action***
Vote BLUE to Save Democracy!
ORD2 Indivisible was founded to empower voters to defend democracy. Almost four years later, we call on our Members of Congress to do the same, and we work to replace those that won’t.
This week we have the chance to SAVE democracy. Voting for Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, and Democrats up and down the ticket will Flip the Presidency, Flip the Senate, Keep the House, and Flip State Legislatures.
We must SAVE democracy at every level — Federal, State, County and City. With this new political landscape we will build back better, a country where everyone has a chance to reach their full potential, no matter their zip code, bank account, skin color or nation of origin.
The process starts with us. Trump and his GOP know they are losing and will cheat to stop the vote count. We won’t let them. We will all vote. We will all Get Out The Vote. We will all be ready to mobilize in the streets until Every Vote Is Counted. We do this For The People.
It is up to us to move this country to a better, brighter future. Call on Congress to Protect Our Vote NOW. Vote, GOTV and make your mobilization plans NOW.
Get Out the BLUE Vote!
**ACTION ONE: CALL OUR U.S. SENATORS**
SAMPLE SCRIPT FOR SENATOR MERKLEY AND WYDEN:
“My name is [–] and I’m a constituent from [city], Oregon [zip code].
Trump knows he is losing; he will try to cheat, stop the vote count. I am doing everything I can to elect Democrats up and down the ticket. Please do all you can to make sure Everyone Counts and Every Vote is Counted.
SENATOR JEFF MERKLEY

**ACTION TWO: CALL COMPLICIT GREG WALDEN**
SAMPLE SCRIPT FOR WALDEN:
“My name is [–] and I’m a constituent from [town/city], Oregon [zip code].
Election season ends after every vote is counted. Tell Greg Walden to respect the American people by doing all he can to make sure Everyone Counts and Every Vote is Counted.
Greg sold us out on healthcare, the tax scam, big pharma, the internet and so much more. The least he can do at this point is to stand up to the most corrupt and inept president in modern history. Silence is consent. Silence is complicity.
**ACTION THREE: BE AN ACTIVIST**
November 2, 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.Count Every Vote – Medford (If Warrented)
