Actions! 3.18-3.24.2019

We cannot combat hate by more hate. We change the rules; we show solidarity, we stop allowing others to define us … and them. And together we will be strong. Together, we are Indivisible.

ACTIONS & EVENTS
Before you do anything else,
please use our Phone Scripts 3.18-3.24.2019 to call our Members of Congress.


Now until April 2
Comment here about the current administration’s efforts to decrease funding for supplemental nutrition (SNAP). We cannot look away for even a moment - the damage being done is too great.

Read the bill, act on the bill

Every week, new legislation is introduced into Congress. Follow legislation through the process! See: Tracking the United States Congress 

S.J.Res. 8: A joint resolution recognizing the duty of the Federal Government to create a Green New Deal.

The Green New Deal - Senate Version
https://www.govtrack.us/congress/bills/116/sjres8/text

S. 729: A bill to prohibit the use of funds to Federal agencies to establish a panel, task force, advisory committee, or other effort to challenge the scientific consensus on climate change, and for other purposes.

https://www.govtrack.us/congress/bills/116/s729/text

 One of these resolutions in the Senate is given a 96% chance of passing. Hint: It isn’t the Green New Deal. But that’s the one everyone is talking about.

March 20
Swing Left Sonoma County: Wisconsin Election GOTV Letter-Writing!

… we'll be writing letters to Dems in WI to Get Out the Vote!
Wednesday, March 20, 2019
4 - 6 PM
Rohnert Park

This event’s address is private. Sign up for more details.
Wisconsin is home to some of the worst examples of Republican gerrymandering in the country. Case in point: last November, Republicans won 63 percent of State Assembly seats—despite losing the popular vote.

The April 2nd State Supreme Court election in Wisconsin is our best chance to reverse the damage done by Republicans to the state’s elections system. We’ll be calling Democratic voters to make sure they know about this crucial off-cycle election, which will have a huge impact on whether new, fair maps are drawn in 2021.

Across the country, in 2018, Swing Left Sonoma County Took Back the House. Now, working together, we can take back not only the White House—but also the Senate and the State Houses needed to control the drawing of fair maps in the 2021 redistricting, undoing some of the worst cases of Republican gerrymandering.

March 21
Sister District Sonoma West County
Thursday, Mar 21, 2019

5:30pm - 7:30pm | US/Pacific
Location: RSVP for location

The Sister District Project channels the money and organizing power of blue states to progressive candidates in red states.

Sitting alone at your kitchen table, wearing your “Resist” button, and writing postcards to members of Congress--who may or may not be listening--is a lonely way to wage resistance. A growing number of west county activists have found a friendlier way to fight. They are joining with neighbors as part of a new national organization called the Sister District Project, a political action committee that channels the money and organizing power of blue districts to progressive candidates in close, “winnable” races in red districts across the country.

Learn about meetings with MoCs. Put team meetings on your schedule. Check in with other progressive groups.
