Today is ZERO minus One DAY!
***Today’s Call To Action***
Election Season — Part Two
Count ALL of the VOTES!
We are a flawed country working for a future that is better and brighter. The fight is hard. The future is worth it.
That fight starts with making sure every ballot is counted and that the will of the voters is respected by Trump and his enablers in the Senate, state legislatures, and SCOTUS. Our Members of Congress must fight for Counting Every Ballot.
Take care of yourself. Remember – we are a flawed country working for a future that is better and brighter. The fight is hard. The future is worth it.
Every Vote Must Count!
**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’s losing and is trying to cheat any and every way he can. I did everything I could to elect Democrats up and down the ticket. Please do all you can to ensure Every Vote is Counted and our democracy maintained.
SENATOR JEFF MERKLEY
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
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
**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 is over when every vote is counted. Tell Greg Walden he has a moral obligation to respect the will of all voters by doing all that he can do to make sure Every Vote is Counted and our democracy survives.
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 4, 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.
