We need to Flood these Members with Calls! 

Today NOW announced our endorsement of Nancy Pelosi for Speaker. But Leader Pelosi is in need of immediate calls to organizers of an effort to prevent her from being elected Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives. A very serious challenge to Leader Pelosi – primarily by a small group of men and some newly-elected members – is poised to prevent her from gaining a majority vote in the House Democratic Caucus. Meetings are beginning today so your call is critically important. 

The effort has been instigated by a vile smear campaign by Republicans. The result is: a challenge to Leader Pelosi instigated by #FiveWhiteGuys: Reps. Seth Moulton (Mass.), Tim Ryan (Ohio), Bill Foster (Ill.), Ed Perlmutter (Colo.) and Kurt Schrader (Ore.). They are circulating a letter opposing Leader Pelosi for signatures among the 22 current and incoming members who have said that they may not support her and among other House members. We need to do what we can to stop this. 

Please call those five Representatives NOW. Even though you may not be a constituent in their Congressional Districts, please tell the receptionist that you are calling on behalf of the many NOW members who are their constituents. 

HERE’S YOUR MESSAGE: Hello, we are calling on behalf of the hundreds of NOW members who reside in your state and your district. NOW is supporting Leader Nancy Pelosi for Speaker of the House; we need a proven capable and talented leader in these turbulent times. Democrats must present a united front. Leader Pelosi has shown that she can unite Democrats to pass progressive legislation; it was her leadership that got the Affordable Care Act passed. I am asking you get behind Leader Pelosi because she is the very best candidate for Speaker and to urge your colleagues to support her election. 

Members to call: 
Rep. Seth Moulton (Massachusetts) – 202-225-8020
Rep. Bill Foster (Illinois) – 202-225-3515
Rep. Ed Perlmutter (Colorado) – 202-225-2645
Rep. Tim Ryan (Ohio) – 202-225-5201
Rep. Kurt Schrader (Oregon) – 202-225-5711
