Americans For Prosperity invites you to join them in grassroots activism, through weekly Phone Banking and National Days of Action.
1.) Every Tuesday (11am-2pm) and Thursday (3pm-5pm) – We will be calling about the Supreme Court Justice Nomination
As you may have heard, AFP’s policy team has conducted extensive research on Judge Gorsuch’s judicial record and has decided to publicly support and encourage his nomination. We believe that confirming Gorsuch will put a justice on the bench in the same vein as the late Antonin Scalia and someone who will defend the individual freedoms of all Americans. Judge Gorsuch has a history of making judgements based on the strict adherence to an originalist interpretation of the Constitution – not his own political whims.
Right now, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer has indicated that he intends to lead Senate Democrats in blocking the nomination and leave the seat open indefinitely. That’s why our engagement is so important. We will be calling into states where Senators are wavering, encouraging constituents to put grassroots pressure on their Senators to confirm Gorsuch’s nomination.
2.) Saturday, March 18th (10am-5pm) – National Day of Action
Americans for Prosperity is a people-powered movement fighting EVERY.SINGLE.DAY for the American Dream. And our activists (volunteers) from around the country are crushing it! In 2016, we surpassed more than 37.6 million citizen contact attempts via phone calls and door-knocking. If you’re not familiar with our efforts, you can read more about the impact we made in 2016 here: https://dayofaction.americansforprosperity.org/your-impact/
Our topic for our March 18th Day of Action has not been announced yet, but we will be joining with other volunteers from around the country in making phone calls to hold our elected officials accountable. I will be at the Marietta office from 10am-5pm, and would love to have you stop by as your schedule allows. Lunch and snacks will be provided.
