How to: Unsilence Elizabeth Warren and Stop Sessions

Southern Poverty Law Center has named Jeff Sessions the “Champion of Anti-Muslim and Anti-Immigrant Extremists“. And the Senate vote to confirm him as Attorney General is expected at 6:50pm eastern time,  Wednesday 8 of February. Yesterday, during debates, Elizabeth Warren was silenced by Republicans for reading this letter, sent by  Coretta Scott King in 1986 urging the Senate to reject Sessions’ nomination as a federal judge. Fortunatley for us, even though they would not permit Warren´s voice to be heard yesterday, we can read. What was true in this letter in 1986, is still true today. We will not be silenced. Read this letter and share. AND THEN GET OUT THE PHONE CARD AND CALL:

(202) 224–3121. Enter “1” to speak to the Senate, then enter your ZIP, then choose your senator.

Script: “Hello, I am [NAME] from [PLACE]. I’m calling because I am deeply concerned about Jeff Sessions’ nomination as Attorney General. Like many of your constituents, I’m convinced that he will not fairly enforce our nation’s laws to promote the rights and equality of ALL the citizens in [STATE]. Will the Senator pledge to vote no on the Sessions nomination today?”
