Action 1: Tell Congress to Cancel Recess to Launch Impeachment
The Mueller report confirmed what we already knew: Trump abused his authority, violated the law, and tried repeatedly to obstruct justice. Trump has now been accused by a whistleblower of asking Ukrainian leaders to interfere with our election system by digging up dirt on his political opponents, and then Trump himself admitted—ON CAMERA—that the call took place. Donald Trump is a criminal. These activities are impeachable offenses.
Finally, it looks like House Democrats are ready to act. 218 members of the House currently support impeachment. Nancy Pelosi has just announced a formal impeachment inquiry of Trump, but that doesn’t mean our work stops here. But the House is about to go on recess.
We need our reps to cancel Congressional recess to launch impeachment proceedings now. This cannot wait.
Script: Hi, my name is [NAME] and I’m a constituent from [zip code] and a member of Indivisible. I’m calling on [REP] to cancel the upcoming Congressional recess so that the House can immediately launch impeachment proceedings. The President has clearly committed high crimes and misdemeanors. If Congress does nothing, then our constitution means nothing. Our democracy will mean nothing. Please act now.

Action 2: Phone Bank to Michigan on October 1
Our friends at Indivisible Michigan have requested urgent help with a phone bank for a city council election in the city of Troy, Michigan. A progressive female reformer is going up against an entrenched Tea Party incumbent in the Nov. 5 election and needs our help calling voters who have just received their absentee ballots.
It’s also an opportunity to hone our quick-response capabilities to support progressive candidates in one of the most important states on next year’s electoral map. Come join us in reaching these voters and activating the progressive community as the 2020 election season kicks into gear.
Please bring your laptop and cell phone.

Of course, we'll save plenty of time to talk about the Impeachment proceedings. (That may require more than one beer...). As always, bring a friend and discover opportunities to impact the 2020 election!
Registration is appreciated, but is not required!
