Speak Out About Trump/GOP Inciting Violence

 

Senator Diane Feinstein

SF Office: (415) 393-0707
DC Office: (202) 224-3841
LA Office: (310) 914-7300
Fresno Office: (559) 485-7430
San Diego Office: (619) 231-9712

If you can't get through to one office, try another.  There is no benefit to calling one office over another.  Leaving a voicemail is as good as reaching a live person. 

Senator Kamala Harris

SF Office: (415) 981-9369
DC Office: (202) 224-3553
Sacramento Office: (916) 448-2787
LA Office: (213) 894-5000
San Diego Office: (619) 239-3884

Call the SF office first, but try the other offices if you can’t get through. If you can’t get a live person, leave a voicemail and also send a follow-up email written in your own words.

Leader Nancy Pelosi

SF Office: (415) 556-4862

DC Office: (202) 225-4965

Call the SF office first, but try the DC office if you can’t get through. If you get voicemail, hang up and try a few more times to talk to a real person. Don’t give up! Short direct messages are most effective.

Rep. Jackie Speier

San Mateo Office: (650) 342-0300

DC Office: (202) 225-3531

Keep calling if you don’t get through. Voicemails are logged daily into a central report across offices.

 

Call Script

My name is __________. I am a constituent, and my zip code is _______. I am a member of Indivisible SF.

Two weeks ago dozens of Indivisibles across California sent a letter to Senators Dianne Feinstein and Kamala Harris urging them to speak out loudly, clearly and publicly against the hate-filled rhetoric that has been coming from the White House and condoned by GOP leaders on a regular basis. A similar letter was sent last week to Leader Pelosi and Congresswoman Speier.

It is this hate-filled speech - on Twitter, in press conferences, and, most alarmingly, at rallies - that is *directly* responsible for the acts of terror that have been committed against ordinary Americans on an all-too-frequent and regular basis since the 2016 election of Donald J. Trump, most recently demonstrated by the murder of two black Americans at a Kroger's supermarket and 11 Jewish Americans in a house of worship. I hold Donald Trump personally responsible for this alarming rise in hate crimes across the nation, along with the entire GOP, with their silent complicity.

I will not tolerate this in *my* America, and I expect my elected representatives to speak out strongly against the hatred that is being encouraged by the man who is supposed to represent *all* Americans - not just his chosen few!


Background

As we have seen in the rash of mail bombs sent this week, the racist Kroger shooting, and the synagogue shooting in Pittsburgh, Trump and GOP’s practice of inciting political violence is actively harming vulnerable communities. Political violence is a danger to our democracy and our elected officials cannot allow rhetoric that excuses and glorifies such violence to continue.

Please see the letter that was delivered last week to Leader Pelosi and Congresswoman Speier. Feel free to send them a copy, as well, and feel free to share it with your friends and family and encourage them to send a similar letter to their representatives.

Also please refer to Indivisible SF’s statement on political violence.
