call script 1:
my name is [name], and i’m a constituent from [city]. i’m calling because i am deeply concerned
about the courts. federal judges receive lifetime seats on our federal courts and appointments will
shape our justice system for decades. our judges should protect the rights of workers, LGBTQ people,
women, immigrants, and people of color. i am urging senator X to vote no on any judicial nominee
who has a record of favoring the wealthy and powerful over equal rights for all of us. thank you.
call script 2:
dear senator [lastname,] i am [firstname lastname of town, zip code]. i am calling to ask you to support s. 2974, which would modernize the way america keeps and searches records of firearms sales. right now, when the bureau of alcohol, tobacco, and firearms needs to track the records of a gun used in a crime, they have to rummage through paper records. for real. no joke. that’s nuts. s. 2974 would allow the creation of a computerized database. that, in turn, would help the ATF pin down information faster, help solve crimes faster, and might prevent more crimes from being committed with the same suspect gun. it’s long past time to drag gun-tracking into the 21st century. this bill should make that happen. please support it. thanks.
call script 3:
hello, [name - senator? other representative?]. i am [who am i?]. i am calling you. [why am i calling you?] i am calling you because of [reason why i am calling you]. please consider why i am calling you. i called you. thank you. goodbye. thank you.
