Action! 7.26-7.29.2018

Almost eight years ago the newly elected majority party in Congress set themselves the role of opposing all efforts to fix the economy and help the people. Having done that, they stalled, lied, placed barriers, and stopped all they could from moving forward. Now, they are being challenged - from their own president. And they are failing that challenge.

This election is so vital to returning our government to problem solving rather than problem making. There are many opportunities now and in the weeks to come.

Resist. Rally. March. Call. Write. Act. And VOTE!

ACTIONS
Campaigns are engaging again as they work toward November. Some of our neighboring states still face special elections. We can help.

The energy is buzzing in Sonoma County to Flip the House to a Democratic majority. We only need to Flip 23 House seats to gain the majority, and many of these potential flips are in California! Indivisible members are working with Swing Left Sonoma County to staff upcoming canvasses. We welcome new and experienced campaigners. For more information, email swingleftsoco@gmail.com

Come canvass door-to-door in CA-07!

Congressman Bera has won last few elections by only few thousand votes. This is a critical seat and the nearest geographic battleground District to Sonoma County! To Flip 23 net seats, we must win every race that is in jeopardy, too.

Canvasses start early in Elk Grove, CA on Saturday mornings – in order to beat the heat. We suggest you arrive at Bera HQ 9332 Elk Grove Blvd Suite 110, Elk Grove, CA 95624 by 10 AM. Each canvassing shift is about 3 hours, and we encourage to complete a full canvass shift! You will be guided along the way by the pros; bring your own water and lunch to help you stay energized.

Make Calls About the Supreme Court Pick
Usually, we urge you to call only our local elected officials - our Senators, our Representatives. But the urgency of the Supreme Court pick is such that we encourage you to call your friends and family members to urge them to make calls.

The candidate, Brett Kavanaugh, has a difficult record on Roe v. Wade, Presidential culpability, impeachment, torture of prisoners, and  Civil Rights issues. Continued calls help reinforce both Democratic and Republican Senators who prefer a moderate and thoughtful Supreme Court. Mr. Kavanaugh’s own advertising indicates that he is a ‘strict constructionist’ and therefore too rigid to find ways to apply our constitution to new situations.

Encourage your friends and family to make calls respectful and firm calls to their senators. Quiet voices have impact - let’s all call.

Watch for postcard parties, canvassing, texting, and phone calling campaigns for the November election. And continue to check out our calendar! There are new opportunities every week.


There is a constant attack and retreat from our current president. We cannot predict what it will take for him to agree with himself that the Russians attacked our elections. He’s not two-sided, he’s erratic.

Yet, we need our Senators and Representatives to hold firm to their convictions - supporting families, refusing census questions on citizenship, and demanding that Congress Members speak up about this president’s war on children and trade.
