What are the New York and Washington numbers we should call?

Keep the calls going
August 5, 2015 4:15 pm

It is very important! I just called and they started fumbling over their words but I stood my ground

I was also brushed off with the number to call in Washington but I call that number regardless and this is what I said; I am a resident of Crown Heights and second generation American I request that Ms. Clark vote against This Iran suicide deal as it threatens my freedom and my very life

To # 20 Why you getting all twisted the guy from number 19 has a point

Let's put this in perspective
August 4, 2015 10:46 pm

Putting all your hopes in this keli is putting your hopes into quicksand. It just won’t hold. And yet when we tried to get someone into a position with at least some leverage in government, only a fraction of the community voted. Where were you all then?

That is an inappropriate comment to make, just because your comment is anonymous and Donald Trump says whatever he wants, doesn’t mean as a Frum (chabad) yid you need to be obnoxious. In short we win either way. If she votes as we are asking her to vote than we have a huge victory. If she ignores us then she’ll have just angered thousands of voters and will need to suffer the consequences of that. Currently she’s from top 10 safest dem congressional seats. Even if in ’16 she wins with 70% of vote instead of her usual 92% it… Read more »

They got about 750 calls today

Call, call, call
August 4, 2015 5:30 pm

When we don’t call, they say ‘we didn’t know it’s importance because no one called’

Let’s not give anyone that excuse. Call NY and DC office. I voted for her and I want my voice to be heard loud and clear – I am against the deal and so should my representative in Congress.

Don't believe Loretta
August 4, 2015 5:00 pm

They tell you what they want you to believe. I am sure they got more calls but won’t admit it, lest they have to vote against the deal.

Something fishy...
August 4, 2015 4:39 pm

After calling the local office, I then called the Washington number and spoke to a woman called Loretta.
I asked him if she could tell me what type of response they’re getting…. She told me they only got about 20 phone calls today… Some for and some against

Just what we needed

Junior N’shei is spreading the word today. According to their facebook page: Thank you to all those who called! The calls are coming non-stop and her voicemail is full! Do not feel dejected if you are told to call Wahington or another number. Just by calling and stating the script, the message is coming across loud and clear. If you have done so yet, please take a moment today and call Congresswoman Yvette Clarke. Phone: (718) 287-1142 Phone Script: “I am calling Congresswoman Yvette Clarke to urge my representative to oppose the Iran nuclear deal because it will not block… Read more »

Their passing you the Washington number on purpose. Don’t fall for it or call both.

Email in this particular matter is basically pointless but you can follow this link https://clarke.house.gov/contact/email-me

Uncomfortable with the words
August 4, 2015 3:25 pm

good idea, but I feel very Uncomfortable with the words “death to Israel” hanging over the streets of Crown Heights

Could someone post email addresses for writing?
August 4, 2015 3:00 pm

I’d rather write than call — get too nervous on the phone. Can someone post email addresses for Clark and others? I’m happy to write.

They gave me a different number
August 4, 2015 2:50 pm

1202 225-6231

August 4, 2015 1:53 pm

They said that we have to call this #202 225 6231

if she votes for deal, she must be ignored, no support from our community.

Wow with all the craziness going on in the USA and world right now. Its nice to have a strong feeling of achdus in Crown Heights over this issue. All types of shuls and community org’s without any hesitation agreed to join the effort.

Even if Congresswoman Clarke ends up siding with the President or plays other political games, we still win. For the first time in many years Crown Heights is engaging our elected officials and putting them on notice. This is a very healthy activity and we shouldn’t feel discouraged.

Thanks for speaking up!
August 4, 2015 1:23 pm

Thanks to whoever is behind this! we need people that are ready to speak up when needed!!
I called and hope everyone does as well!
