I posted this in "Organize/Local Resources." Anyone want to join me? I can send out email reminders if you PM me your email address. Also, for the non-USA mamas, post on what you are conerned about and you can call your officials...
We do this with Planned Parenthood - the activists get together and call them everyday, we did this in August & this month. So.... I was thinking that we could all do this. Like, post a day you are going to call about reproductive rights, the courts, etc...
How to find your Senators:
How to find your Representatives:
Leave them a voicemail, talk to their secretaries:
"If Roberts is confirmed as Chief Justice, he would have broad authority to shape the direction of the Court on fundamental American freedoms including the right to choose and right to privacy. Based on his record, there is little doubt that he will vote to dismantle Roe v. Wade. As Principal Deputy Solicitor General under the first President Bush, he co-wrote a brief to the Supreme Court arguing that âRoe was wrongly decided and should be overruled....â
Maybe something like that, not so long. I found it on the NARAL website.
So post the day you are calling and what state and how you are calling:
I am calling September 25 on behalf of Planned Parenthood... I signed up through them, but we can still get our own thing going...
I am calling Senators Dayton & Coleman (Blah, can't stand Coleman) and my AWESOME Rep Martin Olav Sabo.
Oh yes, and if we could coordinate, like, not double up days in the same states... that'd be awesome. We can start now or start in October and just continue it the same day every month in regards to just CHOICE or the COURTS... depending on when these confirmations hearings go, etc... Also, you can leave your own Voicemail and add your ideas here...
