We’re heading into a major week of action on the For The People Act (S1) in the U.S. Senate (June 21-25), which is why we’re asking every member of Indivisible Bellingham to get in the act.

The Washington State Indivisible Network’s Senate Call-A-Palooza is NEXT WEEK! SIGN UP NOW at the link below!! Your total time commitment will be 5-10 minutes.

You can do that for democracy, right??

Our goal is to start strong on Monday and build up to a constantly ringing phone line in Senator Murray and Senator Cantwell’s offices by Thursday and Friday. Our Senators need to know that the entire state is demanding they do everything in their power to ensure S1 gets passed in time to make a difference in the 2021 and 2022 elections. It’s not enough to support the For the People Act: we need them to be fiercely, publicly advocating for eliminating anything that is keeping the bill from being passed.

Call-A-Palooza lasts 5 days and will involve ALL of Washington state’s Indivisible groups. You can sign up for a single day & time, or be a superhero and call on 2 or more days.

Here’s how it works: You are signing up to make 2 telephone calls within your 30 minute time window (one each to Senator Murray & Senator Cantwell’s Washington D.C. office.) Your total time commitment will be 5-10 minutes each day.

We will send you everything you need by email the night before your calls, and by text message on the day of your calls. (That’s why we ask for a cell phone number.) If you sign up for more than one day, look for an email and text message from us for each of those days.

Pro tips:
Check your email or text messages for last minute updates before your call time: we expect the Senate to vote on S1 later in the week, we will be adapting the daily call scripts as events unfold.

Be sure to mention what organization you are with (Indivisible Bellingham), and ask your call taker to include it in their message.

Extra karma points for doubling your effort by getting at least one friend to sign up as well. So please share this email within your social network.

Indivisible Bellingham Core Crew

FACT: burning gas in buildings (think: heating and gas stoves) is one of the biggest sources of climate pollution in Bellingham. Plus, gas-powered buildings have significantly worse indoor air quality than buildings that run on electricity.

But the sweet thing is that Bellingham can be the first city in Washington to build only all-electric, carbon-free new buildings.

We must call on our leaders to take this step now, before the year ends. Will you please add your name to the petition calling on City Council to act with urgency?

Last year, the city’s Climate Action Task Force put out a list of policies that City Council should pass to reduce Bellingham’s climate impact and safeguard our future. One of these recommended actions is to make all new buildings electric, so that Bellingham builds clean, carbon-free buildings that won’t rely on fossil fuels.

It’s been nearly a year since the Task Force put forward its recommendations, but City Council hasn’t made them into policy yet. Last month’s deadly wildfires showcase just how urgently we need to get off fossil fuels to slow further climate disruption.

We can’t afford to let any more time go by. 

Add your name to the petition calling on City Council to act with urgency.

Burning gas pollutes our air, leaks harmful methane, and puts our buildings at risk of explosion. It’s a bad idea to hook buildings up to fossil gas, especially when there’s a better option. 

It’s time to build for the clean energy future…not the fossil-fueled past.

What is Indivisible?

Indivisible is a network of independent grassroots groups under a national umbrella founded by former Congressional staffers, who in the Obama administration had watched how the Tea Party had blocked president’s agenda and how it had effectively taken over the government of many states. Each Indivisible group has developed its own organization and policies.  Go to the national website for general information and a national directory: https://www.indivisibleguide.com/
