Action 1: Demand that Rauner Sign HB40

HB-40 removes the Illinois abortion trigger law that would remove a woman's right to choose should Roe v. Wade be overturned in the Supreme Court. The bill is on Governor Rauner’s desk right now, and He has not decided whether he will veto or sign the law. Stand with women across Illinois and demand that Rauner sign HB-40.

Call Rauner today: Springfield: (217) 782-0244 | Chicago: (312) 814-2121

Script: Hello, I'm calling as an Illinois resident in [city] and zip code [zip code] to urge Governor Rauner to commit to signing and passing HB-40. This legislation will protect women's rights here in Illinois, and it is essential to ensuring that we do not take a step backward as a state should the country do otherwise. Thank you.

Action 2: Tell Senators to Speak Out Against Ajit Pai's Re-Confirmation to FCC

FCC Chairman and former Verizon lawyer Ajit Pai remains determined to gut net neutrality. If he succeeds, Internet providers will gain new powers to block sites and apps, charge users more money, or force companies to pay expensive “prioritization” fees just to reach you.

He's not even trying to pretend that he's running a legitimate process. He’s suppressed key evidence, ignored issues like fake comments, and refused to comply with transparency laws that would hold his agency to account. This is corruption, plain and simple.

On Monday, the Senate will hold a crucial vote that will determine whether Pai is reconfirmed as Chairman of the FCC. We need our Senators to fire Pai and save the open web while there’s still time.

Call Illinois Senators today and demand they speak out publically against Pai’s reconfirmation.

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

Script: Hi, my name is [NAME] and I’m a constituent from [zip code] and member of Indivisible Chicago. I’m calling to ask the senator to vocally oppose the re-confirmation of Verizon lawyer Ajit Pai as chairman of the FCC. Since president Trump designated him as FCC Chairman, Ajit Pai has worked against Internet privacy rules that stop ISPs from selling the details our online activity, rolled back TV station ownership limits for Sinclair Broadcasting to purchase Tribune here in Illinois, and attacked net neutrality protections that keep the web free from censorship, throttling, and extra fees. Please speak out publically against this confirmation. Thank you for your time.
