Action! 7.30-8.1.2018

It’s a puzzle. There are so many issues, it’s hard to remember. And there are so many really good candidates, it’s difficult to support them. And there are only so many days left to build the blue wave that, like a tsunami, can sweep this president’s power centers away.

What are we going to do?

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

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

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.

After you sign up using the link for one or more canvass events, please email with your dates and contact information and we will email you a group carpool link. Carpools are the best way to get to know each other and save resources!

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.

And Senators Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski say that they aren’t hearing from many callers — so they are looking toward voting for Mr. Kavanaugh. We need you to reach out again and again to encourage your friends, family members (even relative strangers!) to make those phone calls.

Judge Kavanaugh has a difficult record on Roe v. Wade, Presidential culpability, impeachment, torture of prisoners, and  Civil Rights issues. His full record is being hidden from evaluation.

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.

It’s been 166 days since Stoneman Douglas became a high school we had all heard of.
It’s been months since parents and children were separated at the border - and for some, there is no reunion in sight.
It’s 101 days until the midterm election is over.

What are we going to do? We’ll call.
