Indivisible SF Update 11-1

Indivisible SF believes in an America that embodies equality, justice, and opportunity for all — a society in which the regressive and dangerous agenda led by Trump has no place. We work to protect each other and the integrity of our democratic institutions from this agenda, support progressive policies, and hold our elected officials accountable to their constituents.

 

Since the January 2017, over 4,000 San Franciscans have united as Indivisible SF to march in the Women's Marches, protest the Muslim Ban, meet regularly with our Members of Congress, and make thousands of phone calls to their offices to pressure them to do everything in their power to counter the policies and politics of Trumpism. There is much work in progress and many actions to come. 


If you want to actively resist Trump, please join us. All are welcome.  Learn more at IndivisibleSF.org.

UPDATE

 

All hands on deck to Get Out the Vote next Tuesday! Indivisible’s General meeting and Tommy’s Joynt Happy Hour on Sunday are cancelled so that folks can join us in the Mission for text banking and phone banking at Harrington Galleries Furniture Store (599 Valencia Street).

Progressive candidates in swing districts still need your help! Please pull out all stops to do whatever you can:

  • Make donations (suggestions for campaigns to support below)
  • Volunteer to canvass/phone bank/text bank (25+ opportunities below)
  • Reach out to your friends who live in Swing districts to encourage them to vote using the VoteWithMe app

GOTV with us: We’ll be phoning and texting our hearts out every day from 9am to 7pm starting this Saturday through Tuesday (Election Day) at Harrington’s Furniture Store (17th Street and Valencia).

The Prop C and Prop 10 campaigns also need support. Prop C is the biggest measure to seriously address the SF homelessness crisis in decades, and Prop 10, the Affordable Housing Act, is the important first step in addressing the housing affordability crisis in our state.

Text banking: The closer the midterms get, the more opportunities for text banking we have—so many that we don't know in advance what might be available. Please bring a laptop and we'll get you ready to text for whichever campaign needs you most! In addition to helping you get signed up, we'll give you some quick training so you can keep sending and responding to texts on your own time. Text banking is fast, satisfying, and a critical part of the GOTV strategy. Give it a try!

Your Member of Congress Actions This Week

Today we ask you to call your MoC's to speak out against Trump's incitement of political violence against critics and vulnerable communities. Also, ask them to speak out against Trump's upcoming executive order to end birthright citizenship.

Several weeks ago Trump nominated 15 new judges, including three that will fill California vacancies on the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals. Each of these nominees has an abysmal civil rights record and will be appointed for life. The impact of their decisions will be felt for generations to come. Today we ask you to call Sen. Harris and Sen. Feinstein to ask them to block these nominations.

We have other call scripts for our MoC’s this week on the Call Your Reps page of our website! Here’s a preview.

Senators:


House of Reps:


Also, check out our Member of Congress Scorecard, evaluating Sen. Feinstein, Sen. Harris, and Rep. Pelosi on their performance through June 30, 2018. The scorecard was based on the goals and priorities we set for them in the first part of this year. Check out how they did!

 

 

As an all-volunteer organization, we need all the help we can get to be a powerful voice in the Resistance. We are looking for more researchers who can help with calls scripts and Member of Congress meeting agendas. Do you read every piece of news you can get your hands on? Want to do something meaningful with all that knowledge? Help us out!

These roles can take up as much or as little time as you can spare, so please reach out to info@indivisiblesf.org. We need you!
