Ten Bills That Need To Be Stopped

Keep your congressperson accountable to the will of their constituents. These ten bills would be devastating to our polity. These are the first steps in the Republican agenda to completely deconstruct the institutions that are vital to our democracy. Take five minutes to defend the existence of the Environmental Protection Agency, the Department of Education, our natural resources, our health care, our labor rights, our immigrant communities, women’s bodily autonomy, and the safety and security of our nation by voicing your opposition to the following bills:

  1. HR 861: Terminate the Environmental Protection Agency
  2. HR 610: Vouchers for Public Education
  3. HR 899: Terminate the Department of Education
  4. HR 69: Repeal Rule Protecting Wildlife
  5. HR 370: Repeal Affordable Care Act
  6. HR 354: Defund Planned Parenthood
  7. HR 785: National Right to Work (this one ends unions)
  8. HR 83: Mobilizing Against Sanctuary Cities Bill
  9. HR 147: Criminalizing Abortion (“Prenatal Nondiscrimination Act”)
  10. HR 808: Sanctions against Iran

Take five minutes to make a difference!

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 to ask the [REPRESENTATIVE OR SENATOR] to oppose by all means the following bills: HR861, HR610, HR899, HR69, HR370, HR354, HR785, HR83, HR147, HR808. I consider all of these bills an assault on American values. They are deliberately designed to destroy the institutions that protect us, preserve our resources, and provide us education and health care. I am calling to defend the EPA, ACA, DoE, labor unions, women’s rights, and our immigrant communities. Any support for these bills is unacceptable.

I ask that my representatives in Congress raise their voices on these issues and any others like them that arise.

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