EMERGENCY FEDERAL ACTION ALERT – Jan 12, 2022

Produced by the Legislative Committee of the Coconino County Democratic Party and the Democrats of the Red Rocks

ALL HANDS ON DECK! – LET’S DO THIS BEFORE MONDAY!  FILIBUSTER DEBATE JAN 17 AND  VOTING RIGHTS.  THIS IS SO IMPORTANT THAT WE SEND IT OUT OF OUR USUAL SCHEDULE AS A SINGLE ALERT.  CONTACTS MUST BE MADE BEFORE THE END OF THE DAY SUNDAY, JANUARY 16, 2021!

On Monday, Jan. 17, the Senate will debate and vote on easing filibuster rules to advance long-stalled voting rights legislation crucial to saving our democracy!  President Biden is on board along with 48 Democratic Party senators.  You know how important this is and our own Senator Sinema is likely standing in the way.    Let Sen. Sinema know what you think before the end of the day Sunday!  

Sample voicemail/email to our Senators:  “I’m a lifelong Democrat living in XXXXX.  I appreciate your co-sponsorship of the Freedom to Vote Act and the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act.  However, your support is meaningless when your Republican colleagues block any sincere effort to protect Americans’ voting rights.  The filibuster MUST be modified to allow for majority passage of legislation crucial to preserving voting rights and our democracy.  Republican-controlled legislatures everywhere are using majority votes to restrict our voting.  Isn’t it time you supported the same majority passage of legislation that protect our voting rights in the Senate?  

Sen. Sinema:  Call (202) 224-4521 (DC) or (602) 598-7327.  Email via her website at “http://www.sinema.senate.gov”  Tag the Senator in social media at @senatorsinema. 

Sen. Mark Kelly: Call (202) 224-2235 (DC),  Email via his website at http://www.kelly.senate.gov Tag the Senator in social media at @senmarkkelly
