Calls to Action for Monday, December 11

Lots of critical issues this week. Please call about these 3 today:

1. THIS MORNING (Mon. 12/11): Call Sens. Feinstein and Harris to oppose the nomination of Leonard Steven Grasz, of Nebraska, to be United States Circuit Judge for the Eighth Circuit — a lifetime appointment. Grasz’s record stands in opposition to the rights of women and the LGBTQ community. Contact:

  • Sen. Dianne Feinstein: (202) 224-3841
  • Sen. Kamala Harris: (202) 224-3553

2. Make noise about Net Neutrality — VOTE IS THIS WEEK. Use this shortcut to the comment page on the FCC website:

  1. Let’s go to (thanks, John Oliver!)
  2. Click on the “17-108” option which is labeled “Restoring Internet Freedom”
  3. Click on “Express” (vs. New Filing) on the left
  4. Enter name and info and in the comment section, add “I strongly support net neutrality backed by Title 2 oversight of ISPs” and *your own comment too*
  5. Then continue to the review screen and review
  6. Hit “submit”.

While you’re add it, call/email/tweet at the three Commissioners who have not committed to a no vote:

  • Ajit Pai: 202-518-7399 / email: / Twitter: @AjitPaiFCC
  • Michael O’Rielly: 301-657-9092 / email: / Twitter @mikeofcc
  • Brendan Carr: 202-719-7305 / email: / Twitter: @BrendanCarrFCC

THEN, Call your Reps. and ask them to support the Save Net Neutrality act (H.R. 4585), which would prevent the FCC from using the Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) to eliminate the existing Net Neutrality policy. This is a procedural fix, not a policy one. Contact:

  • Rep. Zoe Lofgren: (202) 225-3072
  • Rep. Ro Khanna: (202) 225-2631
  • Rep. Anna Eshoo: (202) 225-8104

3. Election Day in Alabama is TOMORROW. If Roy Moore’s homophobia, belief that the U.S. was great under slavery, and history of sexual assault isn’t enough to keep him out of the Senate, how about his contempt for the rule of law and the Constitution? Let’s get out the vote for Doug Jones! Here are some approved ways we can help:

  • Sign up to textbank here (works via Hustle system)
  • Sign up to phonebank here (works via Hubdialer system)

Thanks for all you do. It matters. Let us know how it goes in the comments below. Don’t forget — if you don’t like making phone calls, you can email, fax, or text Congress! Email:; Fax:; Text using Resistbot: Type RESIST to 50409.
