Action 1: Thank Senators for Keeping the Dreamer Pledge

Yesterday, 14 Democratic Senators joined the Republicans to vote for a continuing resolution to fund the government for another few without any protections for the 800,000 young Dream Act recipients. These immigrants still face the terrifying threat of deportation, and we will not stop fighting for them.

However, after a heroic effort from our local Indivisible members, we placed 600 phone calls yesterday to both Illinois Senators, and they both voted to protect the Dreamers. Thank you to everyone who dialed! Senator Durbin kept the Dreamer Pledge as he promised, and Senator Duckworth spoke out after our wave of phone calls to announce she would be taking the pledge as well.

The fight is not yet over, but please call and thank both Senators for doing the right thing and standing by Dream Act recipients. Tell them to keep it up for the next vote in January!

Call Senator Duckworth | DC: 202-224-2854 | Chicago 312-886-3506
Call Senator Durbin | DC:  202-224-2152 | Chicago 312-353-4952

Script: Hello! My name is [name] and I’m calling from [zip code] to thank Senator [name] for voting ‘no’ on yesterday’s CR to support the Dream Act. Please tell [him/her] to keep fighting to protect 800,000 immigrants from deportation! Thank you.


Action 2: Phone Bank Against Peter Roskam, Architect of the Tax Scam

This week, the GOP voted to gut Medicare, Social Security and raise healthcare costs for millions of Americans with their scam of a tax bill. Voters are rightfully furious at the GOP reps who passed this bill. Let’s help hold them accountable.

Representative Peter Roskam (IL-6) was one of the architects of the Tax Scam, and he’ll be up for reelection in 2018. Help us reach out to his constituents to flood his office with phone calls from the middle class voters he raised taxes on to help the GOP’s rich donors.

You make a difference, whether you can devote 3 minutes or 3 hours a day to this grassroots movement. Please sign up to phone bank and then share the event on Facebook.
