Script:

Hi, my name is [NAME] and I’m a constituent from [TOWN/ZIP]

I’m calling to demand that [REP/SENATOR NAME] call on President Trump to implement Russian Sanctions, signed into law in August 2017. Trump’s recent comments sympathetic to Russia and Putin amid the ongoing investigations into the Trump administration’s relationship with Russia make it imperative that Congress keep up pressure to implement sanctions.

Thank you for all your hard work answering the phones.

Script:

Hi, my name is [NAME] and I’m a constituent from [Town/Zip].

I’m calling to express my opposition to any rollback of the Johnson Amendment, and I ask that [SENATOR/REP NAME] oppose any tax reform plan that attempts to do so. This law is crucial in maintaining our separation of church and state and preventing the influx of dark money into our electoral process.

Thank you for your time and attention.

Hundreds of civil rights groups oppose him because of his demonstrated opposition to voting rights, workers’ rights, and civil rights. This appointment is dangerous for democracy. Thank you.

SCRIPT: Hi. I’m from [ZIP] and I’m calling about transparency in Internet ads. The Honest Ads Act, S. 1989 (Senate)/H.R. 4077 (House), protects voters with the same requirements that TV and radio have adhered to for years. Especially in the wake of last year’s election, I would like [name] to co-sponsor this bill and bring more transparency to groups that fund US political ads. Thank you.
