Week 5/14 Action 2: Demand That the Senate Checks the Imbalanced President

Now that you have read Action 1 (and know what’s what about Comey and Russia), you are ready to call your two senators. The goal is to convince your senators to refuse to cooperate on any senate business until the GOP agrees to form an independent investigation.

Before you call, you should know your senator’s position. Luckily, you don’t even have to do the research -- we’ve already done it for you, and incorporated the info into your new personalized page on our beta website. Once you log-in, you’ll see your senators’ responses to Trump’s firing of Comey.

Your calls will be more impactful if you understand where your senators stand. We don’t want to waste your time (or your senators’ time, if they are Democrats that is) asking for things that they have already done. With six months of resistance under our belts, we just can’t play the rookie card anymore. It is time to make our activism more informed and more strategic. The fate of our democracy depends on all-of-us taking targeted action.

Here’s how:

1. Log in or create a new account to see your senators’ positions (click on "full profile" for each senator). If you can't login let us know, and see where your senators' stand in this NYT article.

2. Use this script, which can be modified based on your senator’s position on the issue.

3. If you have updated information email us at contact@wall-of-us.org.
