Stop the Republican Push for a $500 Billion Slush Fund

The Senate’s critical aid package has been delayed due to Republican demands for $500 billion to be spent with no accountability by Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin.

We can stop this by calling and emailing our Senators to support them in this fight. Here is the Indivisible Guide on how to reach Schumer and Gillibrand.

Regardless of party, your senators need to hear loud and clear from you that you demand they put people over profits (you can read more about what a people-first response looks like at our #PeopleOverProfits Hub). Here’s what you can do right now:

  1. Call both your senators to demand they center people over profits. Even if they aren’t taking calls today (we’re hearing reports that some are), leave a voicemail. Text PPL to 977-79 and we’ll connect you, or use this call page to read through the script and get connected. If voicemail boxes are full, you can also send an email here.
  2. Record a 30 second video that says people over profits. We’re compiling videos from all over the country from people just like you with a simple message: your name, where you’re from, and that you demand a people-first response from your members of Congress. Visit our video tool, look at the camera from your computer or phone, say your name and where you’re from, and the message, “I demand Congress put people over profits.” We’ll tag your senators, and you can share with friends and neighbors to get involved in this fight.
