Federal Action Alert – April 11, 2021

For Senators Kelly and Sinema: 

Without filibuster reform and passing S1 and S4 all will be lost!  We need to keep hammering away.  

Sample voice mail or email Senator Sinema“My name is XXXX and I live in XXXXX, Arizona.  It has become painfully clear to me that your desire to maintain the filibuster is a failure for the legislation that you propose.  Where are the 10 Republican votes that you have obtained on major proposed legislation?   All of the incredibly important work that you are promoting, including major voting rights protection bills S1 and S4, and the Equality Act, will come to nothing, literally nothing, without modification of the filibuster.  Because of your reluctance we may well lose the House and Senate in 2022.  I implore you to support modification of the filibuster and get S1 & S4 passed instead of being the Senator that fails to deliver on her promises. You are starting to lose your base.”

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

For Senator Kelly:  “My name is XXXX and I live in XXXXX, Arizona.  All of the incredibly important work that you are promoting, including major voting rights protection bills S1 and S4, environmental legislation, and the Equality Act, will come to nothing, literally nothing, without modification of the filibuster.  In an age when Republicans in the AZ legislature are poised to enact 19 bills restricting voting rights, we need you to stand up and support modification of the filibuster and to preserve our democracy.”

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

For Representative O’Halleran: 

Environmentally related bill:  

HR 2021, the Environmental Justice for All Act, sponsored by AZ Rep Raul Grijalva. Purpose is to “restore, reaffirm, and reconcile environmental justice and civil rights.” Has been assigned to Energy & Commerce; ask O’Halleran to SUPPORT and to CO-SPONSOR. 

Script: “My name is XXXX and I live in XXXXX, Arizona.  

I’m urging you to support and co-sponsor HR 2021, the Environmental Justice for All Act, sponsored by AZ Rep Raul Grijalva. Purpose is to “restore, reaffirm, and reconcile environmental justice and civil rights.” 

Native American Justice and Environmental Issues: Save Oak Flat Act

Script:  “My name is XXX and I live in XXX, Arizona.  I’m strongly urging you to join Representatives Grijalva and Gallego in co-sponsoring the HR 1884, Save Oak Flat Act.   Oak Flat has been a sacred place for thousands of years for our Apache brothers and sisters. The Trump administration, in its last days, rammed through a massive land trade with Resolution Copper which would cleared the way for a huge mining operation. The Save Oak Flat Act would permanently reverse this land trade and protect the sacred rights of the Apache.   
Rep. O’Halleran: Call (202) 225-3361 or send an email via his website at http://www.ohalleran.house.gov
