Action 1: Tell Senators to End the Filibuster

It’s simple: none of the progressive issues that Democratic candidates and congressional leaders are discussing today will become law unless we do something about the filibuster. If Mitch McConnell expects to be the Grim Reaper of progressive policies, the scythe he’ll use is the Senate filibuster. Unless we change the rules.

Call your Senators to demand they publicly call for the elimination of the filibuster.

    • 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 a member of Indivisible. I'm calling to urge [NAME] to commit to publicly call for the elimination of the filibuster in 2021. The filibuster rule has done nothing but block progress for years. As someone who cares deeply about a number of issues, I know we have no chance of passing legislation in 2021 with the filibuster in place. Keeping the filibuster is tantamount to giving Mitch McConnell veto power over our agenda. Instead, I hope you’ll do what’s necessary to deliver progressive victories for your supporters and for the country. Thank you.
