Until the November 3rd Election
WE’RE WORKING FOR A
STRONG AND JUST
STATE OF THE UNION
Three years into Trump’s rule, the Union — and our Constitution — are under constant attack. The most corrupt, incompetent POTUS ever will become a de facto king if the Senate votes to acquit him tomorrow. But we do not recognize him as our legitimate leader. We refuse to accept the cover-up. Donald J. Trump has never been our president, and he will never be our king.
Indivisibles have fought hard to prevent this moment; for that we are profoundly grateful. Now, how do we repair the Union? By not quitting.
- Trump’s attacks on the fair trial, fair judges, a fair Justice Department and the rule of law must be stopped.
- His racist immigration policies must be stopped (See Action Three).
- His attacks on environmental protections must be stopped.
- He’s coming after Medicare and Social Security. He must be stopped.
- He and his traitorous GOP must be stopped in November.
We are committed to building a BLUE WAVE in 2020 that will make 2018 look like a ripple.
Going forward, we ask our Members of Congress to focus on threats to fair elections.
- Root out the dangers of voter suppression and hackable ballot boxes.
- Hold hearings.
- Conduct investigations.
- Issue subpoenas.
Fair elections can and will save America from four more years of Trump’s GOP. We’ll have another chance at a government . . .
Of the People, By the People, and For the People
**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. . .
. . . because I am so glad that my Senators are joining together to vote against acquitting Trump. They are standing up for democracy. Now I fully expect Trump to double down on winning the elections by hook or by crook. Please ask the Senator to use his bully pulpit to shine a light on all of the threats to fair elections. We must unseat the GOP and Donald John Trump in November.
SENATOR JEFF MERKLEY
Portland: (503) 326-3386, DC: (202) 224-3753

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]. I am calling today because. . .
. . . I remain outraged that Greg Walden voted against impeachment. Even Trump’s defenders admit his guilt. I am appalled that the GOP is effectively crowning Trump as king by acquitting him of serious crimes they acknowledge he committed.
If this president was a Democrat, Walden would be one of the loudest voices denouncing the Imperial Presidency. Is he just another partisan hack, or the patriot he pretends to be?
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.
**ACTION THREE: CALL OUR MEMBERS OF CONGRESS AND RAISE YOUR VOICE TO PROTECT ASYLUM SEEKERS**
**ACTION FOUR: BE AN ACTIVIST**
