  • U.S. Representative for 5-16-2019
    "Hi, this is [name] from [address, city, zip]. I'm calling to ask Representative [name] to call for Attorney General Barr's resignation because he lied to Congress. Thank you for taking my message."

  • U.S. Senator for 5-16-2019
    "Hi, this is [name] from [city, zip]. I do not need a reply to this call. I'm calling to ask Senator [name] to call for Attorney General Barr's resignation because he lied to Congress. Thank you for taking my message."

    Notes/Talking Points: "Several candidates vying for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination are demanding Attorney General William Barr's resignation over his handling of special counsel Robert Mueller's report. At least seven candidates have called on Barr to resign following revelations that Mueller wrote to Barr saying that the attorney general's characterization of his investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election 'did not fully capture the context, nature, and substance of this office’s work and conclusions.'" (From The Hill)

Thank you for taking my message."

  • U.S. Senator for 5-13-2019
    "Hi, this is [name] from [city, zip]. I do not need a reply to this call. I'm calling to ask Senator [name] to reject extreme judicial nominees who will threaten the constitutional right to abortion. Thank you for taking my message."

    Notes/Talking Points: Call script adapted from Planned Parenthood. For more information on specific nominees, click here.

  • U.S. Representative for 5-10-2019
    "Hi, this is [name] from [address, city, zip]. I'm calling to ask Representative [name] to support a strong H.R. 6, the Dream and Promise Act. Thank you for taking my message."

    Notes/Talking Points: "Dreamers and TPS holders remain at risk of deportation due to Trump’ elimination of protections for these groups. This bill would provide permanent relief to Dreamers, TPS holders, and DED holders."

    "Update: The House Judiciary has scheduled a "markup" of the Dream and Promise Act (H.R. 6) for May 8, where they will make substantive changes to the bill. There is a real risk that the Committee will severely weaken the bill by narrowing the eligibility rules. If they do so, it would mean fewer Dreamers and TPS holders getting the permanent relief they deserve." (From Indivisible)

  • U.S. Senator for 5-10-2019
    "Hi, this is [name] from [city, zip]. I do not need a reply to this call. I'm calling to ask Senator [name] to oppose Jeffrey Rosen's appointment as Deputy Attorney General. Thank you for taking my message."

  • U.S. Senator for 5-6-2019
    "Hi, this is [name] from [city, zip]. I do not need a reply to this call. I'm calling to ask Senator [name] to Kelly Knight Craft’s appointment as UN ambassador. Thank you for taking my message."

    Notes/Talking Points: "[Craft] likely got her posting as US ambassador because she’s a major donor, both to GOP causes and to the president himself.... It’s not uncommon for presidents to appoint donors and other supporters to cushy ambassadorship gigs. But the high-profile UN ambassadorship tends to be a job for experienced statesmen or those with deep foreign policy or diplomatic credentials." Her past comments have indicated that she doesn't accept the reality of climate change.

  • U.S. Representative for 4-29-2019

    Notes/Talking Points: "Prior to joining the current Administration, David Bernhardt worked as a lawyer representing the interests of big oil and gas and has a record of siding against endangered species protection." (From Earth Day Network)

    Notes/Talking Points: "VAWA expired in February after its funding was excluded from President Donald Trump's spending bill to avoid a second government shutdown. But the legislation's omission in that spending package provided Democratic lawmakers with the opportunity to push new reforms that wouldn't pass under last year's Republican-controlled Congress.... The reauthorization would strengthen legal protection for LGBTQ, Native American and immigrant women, and make it harder for those convicted of crimes related to domestic violence to acquire firearms, Pelosi said." (From CNBC)

  • U.S. Senator for 4-1-2019
    "Hi, this is [name] from [city, zip]. I do not need a reply to this call. I'm calling to ask Senator [name] to oppose SR 50, which would limit debate on federal judicial nominees. Thank you for taking my message."

    Notes/Talking Points: SR 50 "which would dramatically reduce the amount of time Trump’s nominees have to spend on the floor and let Republicans confirm more of his picks. The resolution would reduce the amount of floor time that must elapse between when the Senate votes to invoke cloture on a nominee and when a final vote is held from 30 hours to two hours." (From The Hill)

  • U.S. Representative for 3-27-2019

    Notes/Talking Points: Congress and the public have only seen a 3.5-page summary written by Attorney General William Barr. "No one outside the Justice Department has yet seen the report, including the White House. The Justice Department has not said whether it will release Mueller's full report, but Barr has said he will be as transparent as possible." (From CNBC)

  • U.S. Representative for 3-6-2019
    "Hi, this is [name] from [address, city, zip]. I'm calling to ask Representative [name] to support the Family and Medical Insurance Leave Act -- the FAMILY ACT. Thank you for taking my message."

    Notes/Talking Points: "In 1993, the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) granted many working people across the United States access to job-protected, but unpaid, time off from work to address serious health and caregiving needs for themselves and their families. But 26 years later, time off from work is out of reach for the 62 percent of working people who are ineligible for leave under the FMLA, or who can’t afford to take unpaid leave. The Family and Medical Insurance Leave (FAMILY) Act, would help close this gap by creating an affordable, comprehensive national paid family and medical leave insurance program." (From Indivisible)

  • U.S. Senator for 3-6-2019
    "Hi, this is [name] from [city, zip]. I do not need a reply to this call.

(From Coalition for American Heritage)

  • U.S. Senator for 3-4-2019
    "Hi, this is [name] from [city, zip]. I do not need a reply to this call. I'm calling to ask Senator [name] to oppose Eric Murphy's appointment to the 6th circuit because he has worked to weaken the rights of LGBTQ people, women, and people of color. Thank you for taking my message."

    Notes/Talking Points: "Currently, Murphy is the State Solicitor of Ohio in the Office of the Attorney General. In the course of his career, Murphy has fought to make it easier for Ohio to disenfranchise voters, has argued against marriage equality in the landmark Obergefell v. Hodges, 135 S. Ct. 2584 (2015), case, has attacked reproductive rights, and has repeatedly sided with special interests over all Americans. Murphy’s record demonstrates a narrow-minded elitism that raises serious concerns that he will undermine critical rights and legal protections." (From Alliance for Justice)



Past Georgia State Legislator Scripts


Today's script can be found here.


  • Georgia state senator and representative:
    The 6 week abortion ban passed the state senate and is headed back to the house. Call Speaker Ralston and ask him to stop HB 481. Sample script from the ACLU of Georgia below:

    "Hi. My name is _______, and I'm a voter in Georgia. I oppose HB 481, because it bans safe, legal abortion and criminalizes the most intimate decision that women and couples make. I ask that you stop HB 481. Thank you."

    The ACLU provides the script and a way to call from their website here.

    Or call directly. Please leave a voicemail if no one picks up.
    Capitol Office 404.656.5020
    Blue Ridge Office 706.632.2221

    Full text of HB 481

  • Georgia state senator and representative:
    Since the U.S. Congress is on recess this week, let's continue to focus on the Georgia General Assembly.

    Call your Georgia state senator and ask that they oppose SR 237, not because of the topic but because it would be a step towards a constitutional convention, which could be disastrous. To call your senator, go to OpenStates.org for the phone number.

    Please read this article for details on why a constitutional convention is such a horrifying idea, and is a growing possibility.

    Full text of SR 237

  • Georgia state senator and representative:
    Since Congress is on break this week, let’s continue to focus on the Georgia legislature.
    Call or email your state representative and ask them to oppose SB 106.

    From Cover Georgia:
    "The Georgia House Special Committee on Access to Quality Health Care will discuss the Patients First Act (Senate Bill 106) tomorrow, March 20th at 2 p.m. in the Gold Dome. Your help remains crucial to inform committee members that this flawed, risky proposal would exclude thousands of Georgians from expanded health coverage and could leave uninsured Georgians empty-handed for years to come. Read key details about the risky proposal on CoverGa.org.

    To call your representative, go to OpenStates.org. To email your representative, use Cover Georgia's template.

  • Georgia state senator and representative:
    We suggest focusing on the Georgia General Assembly today -- this is the last day for bills to "cross over" from one house to the other in this session (see this AJC article).

    Click here for directions on finding contact info for your senator and representative.

    Call your Georgia state senator and/or representative about the following:

    1. Ask your senator and representative to support the Democracy Act. Click to learn more.

    2. Ask your representative to support HB 426 -- hate crimes legislation. Click to learn more.

    3. Urge your senator to oppose SB 221 -- the so-called "Religious Freedom Restoration Act" which would discriminate against LGBTQ people.

    4. Ask your representative to support HB 93 and HB 93, both of which relate to coal ash disposal. HB93 requires public notification when coal ash ponds are drained into rivers or lakes. HB94 changes the fee structure for municipal landfills so that coal ash has the same fee as household garbage. Currently, coal ash is cheaper, so Georgia could become a dumping ground for coal ash.

  • Georgia state senator and representative:
    We recommend focusing on the Georgia General Assembly again today. On Thursday, the Georgia House passed HB 481, which would effectively outlaw abortion. Now, that bill goes to the Senate. It is currently with the Senate Science and Technology Committee: they decide whether it will proceed to the floor for a vote.

    Suggested script: "Hi, this is [name]. I'm a resident of Georgia. I'm calling to ask [person's name or title] to oppose HB 481. Thank you for taking my message."

    Notes/talking points: “The House voted 93-73 late Thursday to approve legislation that would outlaw most abortions once a doctor can detect a heartbeat in the womb. Now, it is up to the Senate to decide whether it wants Georgia to try to test the U.S. Supreme Court decision Roe v. Wade.” (From the AJC)
