SIGN: Governor Cuomo’s petition: http://on.ny.gov/2vBldWt

CALL your Members of Congress to urge them to demand that white nationalists Steve Bannon, Steve Miller, and Seb Gorka be fired from the White House staff.

Talking points: This is [NAME] and I’m a constituent in [ZIP].
I am horrified by the rise of white supremacy in America.
White supremacists say they believe Trump is supportive of their views and see Bannon, Miller, and Gorka as their advocates in the White House.
It is intolerable to have these men remain as White House advisers. A divided country can never heal until they are removed.
I urge [Sen/Rep____] to demand that Bannon, Miller and Gorka be dismissed from the White House.

********************************************************

CALL: Your rep: http://www.house.gov/representatives/find

SCRIPT: Hi. I’m from [ZIP] and concerned about H.R. 2090, requiring all citizens to provide ID before voting. Some Americans can’t afford two hours off work to get to a distant center. This law amounts to a poll tax penalizing the poorest Americans. Can I count on [name] to vote against supposed Election Integrity Act?

********************************************************

CALL: Your rep: http://www.house.gov/representatives/find

Script: I am calling from [ZIP] to express concern about two anti-abortion bills. H.R. 7 has just passed in the House and moves to the Senate to pull all funding for legal abortion in the US. Secondly, S. 231 would modify the 14th Amendment and define life as beginning at conception. I strongly oppose both of these bills and want [name] to do the same.
