Saving Our Democracy!
We had a great time at last week’s How to Save Our Democracy Strategy Session with Representatives Barbara Lee and Jamie Raskin. We left the event feeling inspired to continue the fight to pass the Freedom to Vote Act. One attendee even crafted a message to her family members, telling them who their Senators were, how to call them, and what to say. In her words:
It felt powerful to “do something.” The “power” came from identifying the Senators representing family members in various states. I realized that perhaps our voices can be heard and listened to, by just placing a phone call. I handled my business….NEXT?
If *you’re* looking to take action, too, join us for Fight Back Fridays! We’ll rally every week until the Freedom to Vote Act passes. This Friday is WEEK EIGHT – catch the wave!
October All Members Meeting
Our October All Members Meeting is this weekend! We’ll meet Sunday, October 31st, from 1PM-3PM on Zoom: RSVP here. (Tired of Zoom? Don’t worry – we plan to meet outdoors in person with COVID protocols in place at least once before the end of 2021). We’re also holding a virtual costume contest: submit a photo of your favorite Halloween costume ever through this form. We’ll show submissions on a slideshow at the meeting!
This month, we’ll focus on the fight to save (and strengthen) our democracy. Our member Nancy will talk about the state of play for the Freedom to Vote Act, and staying motivated in the fight – come to Fight Back Fridays (RSVP here) for a sneak preview! Our member Ward will also discuss the democracy-related commitments he recently secured from Representative Eric Swalwell – this is Indivisible power in action! We’ll get an update on text messaging restrictions and how they’ll affect our text banking work. We’ll also hear updates from our recent meetings with Senator Feinstein’s State and Judiciary Committee staff.
Matching Funds for October Donations
Speaking of All Members Meetings, Indivisible National is allowing us matching funds for all donations we receive through October 31st, up to $500. We’re saving up for some A/V equipment to hold hybrid AMMs. We recognize these are difficult financial times for many of us, so of course there’s no pressure to donate. But if you’re planning to give (link here), this month is a great time to do so!
