Weekly Update – January 22, 2019
Make a phone call to end the government shutdown tomorrow. Indivisible has designated Wednesday as a national call-in day. We need the Senate to vote NOW to end the government shutdown, and they need to do so without agreeing to any of Trump’s hateful and hurtful plans. No wall, no additional restrictions on asylum seekers.
If you need to get psyched up a bit before calling, go ahead and watch this short videothat Indivisible made for call-in day. Then make a call! Some of you already have our senators on speed dial. If you don’t, no problem. Just call 1 (844) 236-2373, and you’ll be automatically connected.
