INTRODUCTION

Youve been trying to locate your missing Member of Congress (MoC), to attend a town hall
or an event and let them hear your voice. Theyve been showing up for fundraisers and for
votesincluding to vote yes on the Houses cruel health care billbut they wont do their
jobs and have a town hall.

One thing is clear after the House of Representatives passed their cruel bill to strip
away healthcare from 24 million Americansmembers of Congress who voted for the
administrations bill are not standing up for their constituents best interests or listening to
their concerns. This has effectively left millions of Americans without representation when
they need it most.

Every American deserves to be heard and get answers to their questions, especially when
it comes to matters of life and death. Members of Congress who want to ensure that
people are prioritized over politics and stop the House bill in its tracks should step up and
#AdoptADistrict.

Adopting a district is similar to hosting an empty chair townhall, except the person in the
chair may be a neighboring or near-by member of Congress who is stepping in to help their
peers constituents who are being ignored.

This guide includes key facts, message guidance, steps for inviting members and hosting an
event, sample tweets, and congressional district-specific impact numbers.

ADOPT-A-DISTRICT GUIDE3
KEY FACTS AND MESSAGING

KEY FACTS
These are the facts about the Republican healthcare repeal bill that passed the House of
Representatives:

The bill will cost American lives. Thats not an exaggeration, its a fact.

The bill, as written, will deny coverage to the millions of people who have pre-
existing conditions who will be be stranded without affordable options for
coverage.

Voting on a bill that affects 1/6th of the national economy, without a CBO score
showing how much it will cost, is utterly reckless. The Senate must hold public
hearings and get a CBO score.

Nearly 140 million Americans who get health care through their employer will not
be sparedmillions everywhere are at risk of losing protections against lifetime
caps on insurance.

The bill would mean premium hikes for common issues; over $4,000 for a person
with asthma, $8,000 for someone with depression and a whopping $17,000 for a
pregnancy (WITHOUT any complications).

The bill cuts Medicaid by over $800 billion which will result in millions of the
countrys most vulnerable losing coverage, especially working families, children
and people with disabilitiesall for a tax cut to the wealthiest few.

MESSAGE GUIDANCE
Passing health care reform was an historic achievement that truly changed the lives of
families across the country, many of whom never had access to affordable care. Under
Obamacare, 20 million more Americans have gained health care coverage and the nations
uninsured rate is at an all-time low. There are more positive steps that can be taken to
continue this progressbut despite the rhetoric from its opponents, the health care law has
never been more popular.

At the end of the day, 217 members sold out their constituents and proved theyre
nothing more than rubber stamps for this administrations destructive agenda. They
decided it was more important to give the White House a win than to stand up for families
who have everything to lose.

A vote in favor of this legislation was a vote to punish people for getting sick, for getting
older, for having less income, for being femaleall to hand a massive tax giveaway to the
rich. If this bill were signed into law, 24 million fewer people could have insurance, Medicaid
would be slashed by nearly $1 trillion, protections for pre-existing conditions would be

4ADOPT-A-DISTRICT GUIDE
gutted, insurers would no longer be required to cover essential health benefits, and Planned
Parenthood would be defunded.

Nobody truly believes this bill will make peoples lives better. Not medical experts. Not
health care providers. Not AARP or the American Cancer Society. Not the overwhelming
majority of Americans. Not even the members who voted for it, who cant seem to explain
what is good about this bill. And those representatives will continue to be held accountable
by their constituents for the callous vote they cast.

But the health care fight is far from overthe Senate has already made clear they want
nothing to do with the heartless bill that passed in the House. Even some Senators who are
staunch Obamacare opponents have drawn lines in the sand that the House bill blatantly
violates, like defunding Planned Parenthood, slashing Medicaid, and gutting protections for
pre-existing conditions.

Nevertheless, leaders in the Senate intend to craft their own legislation to move forward
on repealing Obamacare.

So the same volunteers and community leaders who fought valiantly against the House
repeal effort will need to be just as vigilant in making their voices heard by members
of the Senate. Senators will now decide whether they really want to go through with
repealing a health care law thats changed so many lives for the better instead of working in
a bipartisan manner to protect and improve it.

The House members who rubber stamped the administrations disastrous Obamacare
repeal bill are already seeing massive blowback in their districts. The fear and anger from
their constituents who could lose their access to quality, affordable health care is palpable.
And the Senate, no doubt, is taking note. The more they hear the stories of the personal
stories millions of Americans who have so much on the line, the more terrified they are of
being responsible for inflicting that harm.

Thats why now, more than ever, we all need to make our voices heardits the only way
we can stop this heartless crusade.

ADOPT-A-DISTRICT GUIDE5
PLANNING AN ADOPTED MEMBER TOWN HALL

GOALS, STRATEGY, TACTICS


The goal is to hold your MoC accountable for their monstrous vote on healthcare. Pressure
from constituents like you is how we let MoCs know that they arent doing their job and
they arent representing your needs. It also reminds them they will have to answer to their
constituents for the choices they make. Its hard to apply this kind of pressure, however,
when your MoC wont even show their face for a town hall in their own district.

Our strategy is to publicly air your and others discontent, and make clear that decisions like
these are disastrous. To do this, you can invite a more progressive MoC from a neighboring
district to do what yours wonttalk about healthcare and this bills implications in your
district. This allows us to frame the problem: the MoC who voted Yes are too ashamed to
face their constituents.

Neighboring districts often share a media market. This means that any press your event with
your special guest receives will get back to your MoC; that media will draw a stark contrast
between a politician toeing a dangerous party line and a representative who understands
the need to protect the ACA (Obamacare). Inviting an MoC who voted No on the AHCA
will allow positive media for the MoC who voted No and negative media for the MoC who
voted Yes. This pressures the Yes votes to show up to answer to constituents like you; after
all, if they dont show up, they know that well continue to frame the fight without them.

ADOPTED MEMBER TOWN HALLS IN PRACTICE

On Monday, May 8th Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney, a Democrat from New Yorks 18th
District took a road trip north to Republican John Fasos district. Faso had been hiding
from his constituents for quite a while, so Maloney offered to attend a planned Empty
Chair town hall in his placeturning it into an Adopted Member Town Hall. This gave
Fasos constituents the opportunity to finally hear directly from a MoC what repeal really
means for their district.
Since then, the idea has taken off! Rep. Ruben Gallego of Arizona made did the same
in Martha McSallys district. And Rep. Mark Pocan of Wisconsin did the same in Speaker
Paul Ryans district!

6ADOPT-A-DISTRICT GUIDE
STEP 1: MAKE A CONNECTION
Identify a neighboring group. Use the action map on the Indivisible or OFA website to
search for groups in nearby districts: https://www.indivisibleguide.com/act-locally/ and
https://www.ofa.us/get-involved/find-your-chapter.

Introduce yourself and make an ask. Send an email or a message to the other group.
Explain the purpose for reaching out (i.e., you want to host their MoC or you want to lend
them your MoC. If you are reaching out because you want to lend them your MoC, please
remember that the official invite should be coming from the group that is in the MoCs
district.).

Plan a strategy meeting. Set a time for an in person or phone meeting to brainstorm and
set plans. Time is of the essence, so doing a phone meeting is fine if its tough to get people
together.

STEP 2: AGREE ON A PLAN


At your meeting or over the phone, go through the following steps:

Book a venue. Explore holding your event at a local school, library, church, town
hall or conference or convention center where a space can be obtained for low or
no cost. Find out if basics like chairs and audio equipment are already available at
the venue.

Write an agenda. Youre putting time into coordinating this event, so take time to
make the most of it by outlining a detailed agenda for the day of the event. A few
questions to consider:

Who will introduce your MoC? We recommend constituents who would


be affected by repeal. Personal stories from people in the district are one
of the most powerful tools at our disposal.

Will you have an emcee?

How much time will the MoC have for remarks?

How much time for Q&A?

What other speakers will you invite if any? Local doctors, nurses, policy
professionals, or affected individuals or storytellers can make great
speakers. Do not feel the need to have more than a few other speakers,
though; the bulk of the time should be lent to the MoC.

Plan your questions. Like with any town hall, you should take time before the
event to develop a list of questions. See How to Stand Indivisible at Town Halls for

ADOPT-A-DISTRICT GUIDE7
THE POWER OF STORYTELLING

A year and a half ago, I donated one of my kidneys to a stranger. And because of that
any insurance company would consider me to have a serious pre-existing condition.
A couple of days ago, one of the GOP congressmen said something along the lines of:
People who are healthy are good people, people who have pre-existing conditions
are bad people. I dont know what to say about that. That leaves me speechless and
heartbroken.
Jennifer, Founder of Indivisible Colusa, California

tips and Enough is Enough for talking points. You can also find resources from
OFAs Get Ready for Recess.

Identify constituents with personal stories. Invite constituents with personal


stories about the ACA to share before the MoC speaks or to be the first question
askers. Again, you dont need more than a couple before the MoC speaks.

Assign volunteers roles for the event. One person can take on more than one
role if youre short on volunteers, but these roles can be great opportunities to
recruit new folks from your network or those of other group members!

Welcome/ Sign-in: sits a folding table and signs everyone in on a clipboard,


collecting email and phone numbers. Invites all locals to the debrief
meeting and collects RSVPs.

Visibility: Responsible for signage inside and outside the venue, as


permitted.

Mic duty (ideally two volunteers): Passes the mic to constituents during
Q&A portion. Makes certain that the A/V equipment works before the
event begins, but someone should do that.

Ushers: Asks folks if theyve signed in and then points them to seats,
making sure to fill up the front rows first.

Social media (ideally two volunteers): One person to manage the


livestream, one person to live tweet the event. This team should post
the event on Facebook as soon as possible, invite all their friends, and
encourage everyone in the group to do the same. This person should also
make sure to post pictures and video to Indivisible Twitter and put them
up on Mobilize.

Emcee: Gives brief welcome remarks and introduces each speaker.

8ADOPT-A-DISTRICT GUIDE
STEP 3: INVITE YOUR MOCS
Inviting the MoC who voted Yes on the AHCA: (we expect them to say no and skip the
event, but great if they attend, as you can have a real live Town Hall!):

Official invite to the office. Submit an official meeting request through your
MoCs website, call their office and ask to speak to the scheduler, or request
the schedulers email address. Be prepared to follow up if/when you dont get
a speedy response; the best way to follow up is via phone. When you email
the scheduler on a request like this, it doesnt hurt to include the MoCs Press
Secretary, who is charged with protecting the narrative about the MoC. You can
also hand deliver an invitation to a district office. To drum up extra excitement
about the event, document the process and post about it on social media with
photos and video.

Emphasize that youre a constituent. In all of your communications, stress that


you are constituents, that you want to hear directly from them, and that youre
interested in a polite, respectful exchange of ideas. Explain how many people
youre expecting and let them know if youre expecting press.

Explain the alternative. Make it clear that youre inviting a neighboring member
of Congress and explain your reason for doing so.

If your member wont attend, invite a neighboring MoC who voted correctly.
Call their office, ask to speak to their scheduler, get the schedulers email, and
send them an invitation. (Need help? Contact the Progressive Change Campaign
Committees Capitol Hill team AFTER you have extended the invite by emailing
IndivisiblePCCC@BoldProgressives.org).

Inviting the MoC who voted No on the AHCA and is visiting the district (we want them to
say yes and attend!):

Official invitation to the office. Use the same above outlined tactics to publicly
invite your MoC to the town hall.

Explain the circumstances. Share the plan with your MoC and explain why this is
beneficial to both the constituents in the other district and to their own image. If
you have any event details to share, do. Its also fine to note that we are working to
do this in other districts as well.

ADOPT-A-DISTRICT GUIDE9
SAMPLE AGENDA (90 MINUTE TOWN HALL)

Arrivals and sign in (10 minutes)


Welcome table volunteers sign everyone in and collect RSVPs for the followup meeting.
Ushers point people to seating.

Introductions (5 minutes)
Emcee welcomes everyone and shares the run of show.

Expert speakers and/or personal stories from affected constituents (10-15 minutes)
Speakers take a few minutes to share remarks (be sure to set time expectations in
advance).

MoC Introduction (5 minutes or less)


Organizer or affected constituents introduce the Adopted MoC.

MoC Remarks (5-10 minutes)


MoC makes a few opening remarks (set clear expectations with the MoC in advance).

Q&A (40 minutes)


The bulk of the town hall should be the MoC taking questions from the crowd.

Closing (5 minutes)

STEP 4: PUBLICIZE THE EVENT


Invite local media. Write a press release and send it to all of your local media contacts.
Directions for how to write a press release can be found here.

Spread the word on social media. Facebook, Twitter, Patch, Instagram, share your event on
your groups account and on own your own as well. Encourage all of your leadership team
and your members to do the same.

Call and email your member list. While this will drive some attendance, calling anyone you
have a phone number for is by far the best way to drive attendance.

Let other groups in your district know. Do you know people who are parts of other
progressive organizations? Or who are part of constituencies who might be interested, like
medical professionals, mothers groups, etc? Let them know about the event and send them
a version of the email you sent your members that they can email their lists.

10ADOPT-A-DISTRICT GUIDE
Post flyers and send invitations. Do you have a talented graphic designer or just some
markers and printer paper? Either way, you have the tools you need to post flyers on every
bulletin board and telephone pole in town.

Make a plan to promote the event at the last minute. Post an update in the Facebook
group and on Twitter. Bring your friends and neighbors. Send a last minute email update.

STEP 5: HAVE A GREAT EVENT!


Remind your attendees before the event. Find a few volunteers to help call through your
attendees the day before the event to confirm location and information.

Confirm how much time your MoC has for the event. You may need to change the agenda
to accommodate them. While other speakers can be good, remember that the media is
largely interested in the MoC.

Confirm with local media and speakers. Make sure your speakers and local media have all
information for the event and are planning to attend.

Set up in advance. Arrive at the venue a few hours before the event to get set up.

Set up a sign-in table for all of your attendees, and use your welcome table to
recruit them to attend your next meeting. Get peoples phone numbers and
emails (sign someone in on the first line with both phone and email and other
folks will follow suit).

Arrange seating for the speakers.

Work with speakers who are not the MoC to practice their comments. Remind
them to keep it brief, 2-3 minutes tops.

Test all lighting and A/V equipment.

Charge all devices for social media leads.

Reserve space for the press.

Make sure you have a seating section for people with disabilities. The usher should
know where this is and point people there, as necessary.

Prepare your speakers with the run of show. Make sure you prepare the MoC with the
timing of the agenda and answer his/her questions in advance of starting the program.

ADOPT-A-DISTRICT GUIDE11
STEP 6: FOLLOW UP
Host a debrief meeting. Use this as an opportunity to bring in new members and show
your gratitude to everyone who helped make this a success. Consider holding a combined
meeting with both districtsthis could be the first event in a great relationship!

How did it go? Ask feeling questions and discuss candidly. Are you happy with the turnout?
The run of show? The press? What would you do differently if you could do it over again?

Write thank you notes. Handwrite thank you notes for the MoC and special guests.

Amplify your work. Share all photos, videos, and press coverage with field@indivisibleguide.
com and stories@indivisibleguide.com.

What next? Make a plan for your next action.
