Make Calls to Ensure a Fair and Open Impeachment Trial in the Senate

Phone Banking

Sign up to make some calls connecting voters to 13 key senators.

With impeachment hearings moving forward this week in the House, it’s critically important that we prepare for the next stage — a fair impeachment trial in the Senate. We’ve hit 600,000 calls (!!) but we still have a ways to go to make our goal of calling one million constituents of the 13 senators who really need to hear from them. We’re asking you to call voters in those states and ask them to turn up the pressure on their elected officials. It’s a simple four-part process:

– You call a progressive voter in a key state with one of these 13 Republicans. These folks are your friends—they attended the Women’s March and/or fight for progressive causes.
– You explain how they have power now. You’ll remind them why the continued fight for impeachment is so important—and why they have particular power in this moment.
– You ask them to use their power. Then, you’ll ask them to call their senator and make their voices heard on why we’re demanding courage in this moment.
– You push a button and connect them to their senator’s office. The call tool will allow you to automatically patch them through to the senator’s DC office.

“How to Beat Trump” – An Action Step

Indivisible member Linda Chiles recommends reaching out to Democratic presidential candidates with this action step. All necessary resources are provided in this post. You just have to make the effort.  In her words:

“I just finished my little project of writing to the DNC (Nancy Pelosi, Seema Nanda-CEO, Chuck Schumer, Tom Perez) and all the candidates about this article I had read that I really agree with.  See the attachments.
I thought your group might be interested in doing this, too, provided, of course, they agree with this Republican author.  I’m sending it to my contacts and encouraging them to write to these folks as well.  I don’t know if it does any good but it sure makes me feel better.

Fossil Free Fast: The Climate Resistance Live Event

Fossil Free Fast : Climate Resistance

Join us on Wednesday, Jan 31st for a Fossil Free Fast: The Climate Resistance Live Event watch party in Lincolnshire. Meet others in our community who want to organize to build local power and take climate action. Find out what we can do to begin to build the Fossil Free future we need – and connect with folks from Northshore Indivisible and other activists equally passionate about this work. Please RSVP so we can send you updates and last-minute details.

What can we do to protect our environment in 2018? How do we keep up the fight for climate justice? How can our towns still make progress in the face of the Trump administration’s attacks? How do we organize for power outside the capital when the government shuts down?

If you’re asking these questions, you’re not alone. All across the country, there are millions of us who are looking for ways to stand up for our climate and communities.

We know the dangers this administration poses to people and our planet are immediate and real — but we don’t just want to resist Trump. We want to move past him, and rally like-minded people around the country to start building a Fossil Free world now, instead of just playing defense.

That’s why on Wednesday, January 31, the day after the State of the Union, we will come together for Fossil Free Fast: The Climate Resistance.
