New Initiative from Indivisible Guide

Big News

Indivisible HQ is rolling out in-person Indivisible Regional Institutes and training for local groups this fall! (All of us who have been trying to coordinate between and among groups, we don’t have to re-invent the wheel – they are providing the wheel for us.) Here’s the email they sent today.

You know we don’t send a lot of fundraising emails. That’s not our style. But we are just so seriously jazzed up about this new initiative, and we need your help to make it happen. Get excited with us.

We’ve heard directly from you and members of the 6,000 local Indivisible groups that you need more support: advanced organizing skills, improved coordination with other groups, and space to plan and strategize. Our core strategy is investing in local leadership to realize the potential of the Indivisible movement. So with your support, this is what we’re going to do: Continue reading “New Initiative from Indivisible Guide”

Weekly Meeting Actions – August 27th

Indivisible Guide Call to Action: Defend DACA!

Trump intends to undo DACA, the Obama initiative that protected people under 18 who were brought to the US by undocumented immigrants. Protecting them would require new legislation by Congress.

  • Contact Senators and tell them to co-sponsor the bipartisan “DREAM Act” (S. 1615)
  • Contact Reps and tell them to co-sponsor American Hope Act (H.R. 3591), give those with DACA and others who arrived in the United States as children a path to permanent legal status and eventual citizenship.

Internet Security Tips for Activists

Indivisible members, this resource is being shared anonymously for our mutual information and protection. It is written by one of our members who invites us to share freely with other groups and individuals as needed.

In what follows, I differentiate between “casual” attacks and “directed” attacks. A casual attack is when you and a million other people receive malware via email, or are swept into a data theft from someone’s mailing list. A directed attack is when someone is attempting to gain access to your information, personally, either because of who you are or because of an organization you’re affiliated with.

There is some overlap, and so some of the same precautions apply to both.

Weekly Calls to Action and Update – March 7

Hello North Seattle Indivisibles! Here are our weekly calls to action!

Urgent: Oppose ACA Repeal

Weekly Actions and Update - March 7 | From Indivisible North Seattle
Oppose the ACA Repeal

Click Here to Take Action

House Republicans are planning to ram through an Affordable Care Act (ACA) repeal bill that will jeopardize health care coverage millions of Americans. They shared a draft of their bill with only 40 hours for the public and even other Members of Congress (MoCs) to review. Republicans are also rushing to approve the bill without releasing a formal cost estimate from the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office (CBO), which analyzes how much federal legislation will cost or save American taxpayers—known as a “score” (see our CBO explainer for more information on scoring). Americans deserve an open and honest debate for more than two days about a bill that will cause millions of people to lose health insurance coverage.

Votes on the GOP plan in two key committees are planned for March 8 at 10:30am EST without a cost estimate. Supporters of the bill want to get it through the House before they head home for the next Recess (April 8-23). They do not want to face you at town halls and other events in their districts and have to answer questions about their plans for to replace the ACA. Call your representative in the House between now and Wednesday, March 8 and tell them to oppose any congressional action on the proposed ACA repeal bill without a transparent, thoughtful process, including a public CBO score. The American public deserves to know the effects of a bill of this magnitude.

And, if the bill does not preserve the core values of the ACA—like robust and affordable healthcare options for all Americans covered under the ACA—tell your representative to oppose repeal.
