Step 1: Call your Members of Congress

Use the legislative lookup tool to the right to find the phone numbers for your senators and representative.

Recommended Community Catalyst Call Script:

Good [morning/afternoon]. My name is [NAME] and I live in [CITY/TOWN], [STATE]. I am asking you to follow up on the positive step of funding CHIP by taking action on three critical issues that still hang in the balance: funding for community health centers, support for disaster relief in Puerto Rico and a permanent solution for Dreamers.
 
>> Community health centers provide families with essential health care. I am asking you to fully fund community health centers in the next possible legislative vehicle.

>> Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands need Medicaid funding now more than ever in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria. I am counting on you to support a package that addresses both the immediate health care crisis created by the hurricane, as well as the long-standing need to address the chronic underfunding of their Medicaid programs.

>> Finally, as another opportunity to pass a clean DREAM Act approaches, I am counting on you to stand with the hundreds of thousands of young immigrants who call this country home.

[OPTIONAL BUT HIGHLY RECOMMENDED: ADD 2-3 SENTENCES ABOUT YOUR OWN PERSONAL STORY AND WHY THIS ISSUE IS IMPORTANT TO YOU]

I hope you will make the right decision for me, my community and my family.

Thank you.
