Memphis: Call-in to Oppose Trump's Cabinet Appointments Public · Hosted by Memphis Progressive Student Alliance

Wednesday, November 23, 2016 at 10 AM - 2 PM CST

Join the Progressive Student Alliance Wednesday, November 23rd as we call on our elected officials to oppose Trump's recent cabinet appointments.
Additionally we are asking folks to call the Government Reform Committee in support of a review of Trump's financial arrangements before he takes office.

We have created two sample scripts with their corresponding call-in numbers. Feel free to adjust or create your own. Please, let us know if you have any questions! We'll have the biggest impact if folks can flood their phone lines within the event time period, but if that doesn't work for you, call when you can!
