The RepresentUs Calling Out Corruption text-banking program is the best way for volunteers to fight corruption!

Senator Ted Cruz and Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez are actually working together, across the aisle, on a bill that would stop members of Congress from leaving office to become lobbyists.

Their offices are already holding initial legislative meetings to plan the legislation, but negotiations could fall apart if we don’t keep the pressure on.

We will be texting RepresentUs members around the country, encouraging them to tweet Ted Cruz and AOC to make sure they follow through on their promise to stop the revolving door. This is a real opportunity to put a bipartisan bill in front of Congress that will stop the revolving door - and we can’t let it die.


Calling Out Corruption Text and Phonebanks happen every Thursday, with the types of calls and our targets changing based on the needs of the movement across the country. 

Our text-bank nights begin at 5pm EST / 2pm PT and continue until 8pm EST / 5pm PT - but you can attend as much or a little of the night as you'd like!
