Our Elected Officials Deserve to be Safe

On Wednesday night, Donald Trump provoked the crowd at a rally in North Carolina into chants of "send her back," directed at Minnesota Congresswoman Ilhan Omar. The President's xenophobic, race-baiting language is increasingly dangerous, and Representative Ben Ray Luján, the fourth ranking Democrat in the House, told Politico that "It’s bad enough that the president didn’t stop the chant last night. But he started it. It’s instilling fear, it’s going to instill violence."

Trump's behavior is unacceptable, and Congress needs to both protect its members and rebuke the President. That's why today we are asking for you to call your members of Congress and demand action.

Today's Action: Demand protection for lawmakers and a rebuke for the President

Contact both Senators:

Contact your Representative:

Sample script:

"Hi, my name is {NAME}, and I'm calling from {CITY, ZIP}. I heard about Donald Trump's violent rhetoric towards Ilhan Omar on Wednesday night, and I want to see {MEMBER OF CONGRESS} do something about this. First, Omar and others need protection to be safe, and second, I want to see {MEMBER OF CONGRESS} push for a formal condemnation of Donald Trump's violent language."
