Take Action 2.15-18.2018

Saturday will be sunny. Monday may have some gloom. If we remain INDIVISIBLE we will all prevent doom.

Make some calls, send some postcards, get together with your neighbors, friends and allies and be Indivisible!

1. Action
The Republican-dominated Senate is working toward a DREAM Act that they hope will meet the needs of the President. Democrats may be able to influence the outcome, but they cannot control the message.

The President wants a wall, and to pay for that, he wants to take the funds from health care, housing support, and other social welfare programs.

Make a call to our Senators. Make another. And do it now, because the deadline is March 5, and there’s no sign that the Republican President will extend that deadline. For more action on the Dream Act, read below.

We are just 265 days away from the November midterm elections. And while we’re all looking forward to that big blue wave, there’s still so much work to do to continue fighting the Administration’s agenda. With your help, we are building the political infrastructure needed to take back the House (and maybe the Senate!).

Our Sonoma County Indivisibles have been calling, registering voters, and sending postcards to remind people that this is an important election with important issues.
Want to help?

Send Postcards to CA1!
CA1 has asked us to help by sending postcards to voters. They’ve got a great set of instructions here.

Call CA 49 From Home Anytime
We are working very closely with CA 49 where Darrell Issa is their current Congressman. The "Flip the 49th" team has asked us to call from home to ask voters  what issues matter to them, what is the level of support for Trump, and if they would be willing to volunteer.

You will need a computer or tablet that is connected to the Internet and a cell phone.
Send me an email for instructions and a script. Linda whatisworking@gmail.com

The most disastrous infrastructure proposal. The budget. Food boxes. THE DREAM AND THE DREAMERS. Gen. Kelly. Corruption.

Just as the news never ends, our commitment to making a difference continues.

Pick up your phone and do it! Phone Scripts 2.15-18.2018
