Support Free Press

President Trump’s administration lied to us, then attacked the press for calling out those lies. Our free press is one of the best parts of living in America. Let’s ask our elected officials to support journalism, call out the Trump administrations lies, and demand the president release his tax returns.

STEP ONE:
Use this link to the contact information for your representative and two senators.

Senators

STEP TWO:
Use the phone script or form email below to contact your officials. Feel free to modify the message as you see fit. As a tip a PHONE CALL IS MORE LIKELY TO GET YOUR VOICE HEARD AND COUNTED THAN AN EMAIL, but an email is better than nothing!

PHONE CALL SCRIPT:

Hello, my name is [YOUR NAME] and I’m calling the office of [NAME OF REPRESENTATIVE OR SENATOR] because I am a constituent. I live at [ADDRESS, CITY, and STATE] and my phone number is [PHONE NUMBER].

I’m calling because to ask the [SENATOR OR REPRESENTATIVE] to speak out in support of our mainstream media. Historically and now more than ever, our free press has kept watch on those in power, challenging any false story. Press Secretary Sean Spicer blatantly lied to the press during his first conference and attacked them for exposing and questioning these lies. Spicer was supported by President Trump’s Counselor, Kellyane Conway, who referred to these lies as “alternative facts,” as she attacked the press for doing their jobs. I am asking you to publicly support the press and call out the Trump administration on their blatant lies.

In the same interview, Kellyanne Conway stated that President Trump would not release his tax returns. Please publicly demand the release of these documents. The president did promise to release them during a debate before the election. We deserve to know about the financial responsibilities and connections of our Commander in Chief. Our national security depends on it.

Please raise your voice on this issue and any others like it that arise.

You will be hearing from me on more issues in the future. Thank you for your time.
