Please Call Your Senators - Tell Them to Confirm Richard Cordray

Here’s how:

1. Call 1-888-291-9824 to be connected to the Capitol switchboard.

2. Ask for the office of one of your senators (it's especially important that you contact the offices of Republican senators). Look up your Senators here.

3. When a staff member answers the phone, you can use this rough script:

“I’m a constituent, and I’m calling to ask the Senator to confirm Richard Cordray as Director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. Mr. Cordray’s qualifications and leadership have been praised by bankers as well as consumer advocates, and by Senators on both sides of the aisle. In my mind, that should settle the case. I do not believe it is right to use the confirmation process to rewrite the law that established this agency. As a practical matter, anything but an unconditional vote in favor of his confirmation will damage consumers and embolden the very worst elements of the lending and banking industries.”

4. Let us know how your call went! Leave a comment below to tell us what happened.
