217 weeks down, 10 days to Inauguration Day

The AoC Checklist features clear, well-researched actions for Americans who value democracy, equality, voting, and decency. We are a big tent for all people who want a kinder, flourishing nation.

I value democracy.

With respect and collaboration, we work to create a nation that welcomes all people, expands freedoms, and upholds the Constitution. Each citizen must be able to freely and fairly elect those who represent their values.

Action 1: Advocate for the removal of an unfit president from office. [Sources: 5 CallsHuman Rights FirstNational Women’s Law CenterMoms Demand ActionNAACP]

Call: Your two senators and one House representative (look up).

Script: Hello, I’m calling from [ZIP] to express my strong support for Donald Trump’s removal from office. His vocal encouragement and support of armed rioters who stormed the Capitol is an act of sedition, and his continued presence in office will only fuel additional violence. I am asking [NAME] to either urge Vice President Pence and members of the cabinet to acknowledge the president as unfit to perform the duties of his office and invoke the 25th Amendment or begin impeachment hearings. Thank you.

Action 2: Advocate for transparency from our nation’s highest office. [Source: 5 Calls]

Call: Your two senators and one House representative (look up).

Script: Hi, I’m calling from [ZIP] to object to Donald Trump’s efforts to change the outcome of Georgia’s presidential race. His repeated demands that Georgia Secretary of State Raffesnperger “find” additional votes are not only potentially criminal, but an insult to the will of voters and the integrity of our elections. I urge [NAME] to demand an immediate investigation of that call. Thank you.
