Call to Action: November 13, 2018

WE HAVE CHANGED THE COUNTRY

CONGRESS MUST JOIN US


Last week we made history. We voted in a new Congress, new governors, new state legislatures, and expanded Medicaid. In Oregon, we defeated harmful ballot measures and protected our Governor and State Legislature. While we fell short in OR2, we boldly went out and made a difference. The Trumpian candidates were forced to address the issues we raised, and next time, based on the lessons we learned, we’ll be able to go farther. We are so proud of all we accomplished together, and we can’t thank you enough for working alongside us.

We hope you will continue to work with us because there is 

More to Do!

We must make Congress work for all of us and stand up for democracy. 

Congress must stop Trump from trampling on the rule of law. His first desperate acts after our victories were forcing Jeff Sessions’ resignation and replacing him with political operative Matthew Whitaker. Whitaker’s conflicts of interest abound, and requiring Mueller to report to him, rather than Rosenstein, imperils the Russia investigation. 

Demand Whitaker’s Recusal!

Protect Mueller’s Investigation!


**ACTION ONE: CALL OUR SENATORS**

SAMPLE SCRIPT FOR SENATORS WYDEN AND MERKLEY:

“My name is [Name]. I am a constituent living in [town/city], ZIP code [number]. I’m calling because I am deeply concerned about threats to the rule of law in this country. By forcing Jeff Sessions to resign and replacing him with Matthew Whitaker, Trump is attempting to go around the law. I’m asking the Senator to 1) demand Whitaker’s recusal from overseeing Mueller’s investigation, and 2) insist that legislation protecting Mueller’s Russia Investigation be added to the must-pass spending bill. Thank you.”

**ACTION TWO: CALL COMPLICIT GREG WALDEN**

SAMPLE SCRIPT FOR WALDEN:

“My name is [Name]. I am a constituent living in [town/city], ZIP code [number]. I’m calling because I am deeply concerned about threats to the rule of law in this country. By forcing Jeff Sessions to resign and replacing him with Matthew Whitaker, Trump is attempting to go around the law. I’m asking that Greg Walden put the US Constitution and the rule of law before party and 1) demand Whitaker’s recusal from overseeing Mueller’s investigation, and 2) insist that legislation protecting Mueller’s Russia Investigation be added to the must-pass spending bill. Thank you.”
