Actions

WRITING POSTCARDS
Join us in writing to support campaigns in critical states, and help out areas of the country that need our support. We are writing to connect voters of color to resources in states where voter suppression is active through partnerships with folks like the NAACP, Sister District, Reclaim Our Vote, and Black Voters Matter. There will be individual campaigns for a a few local candidates too. Contact IndivisibleBellingham@gmail.com – we supply the cards, scripts, stamps and addresses.

Post card writers will also be connected to texting and phone banking opportunities. By early October we anticipate that these will be the primary ways to contact voters. We will be working with our partner organizations on these actions as well. More information to come!

WRITING LETTERS
Join the Vote Forward letter-writing campaign: 10 million letters to voters!
In multiple randomized trials, voters who received a letter were significantly more likely to vote. This is especially important for the low propensity voters who we are trying to reach. Letters go to voters in critically important states that you get to choose. You can do this activity at your leisure or create a virtual letter-writing party.

How It Works:
1. Sign up to write letters by clicking here: https://votefwd.org/indivisible
2. Then, VoteFWD provides you with names, addresses, and a template to write letters to voters in important states.
3. Save your letters and send them in October, right before the election, so that voters receive them at the perfect, most-strategic moment.

Contest Every Race

Contest Every Race is run by Resistance Labs, a group that supports many projects from research to texting to phone banking. Contest Every Race has been researching down ballot races where there is no Dem challenger. About 2/3 of all races have no competition! Research identifies races, and tracks who actually filed to run. Right now we are researching all the candidates who have filed for Boards of Education in CA. It involves doing web searches and filing out information on a spreadsheet, sometimes following dead ends with phone calls. If you think that would be fun, please contact Gracie Fleming at gracie@resistancelabs.com.

PAYBACK PROJECT
Defeating this many Senate Republicans will not be easy — it will take a massive awareness campaign to expose the truth of their complicity to voters and a growing grassroots organization on the ground ready to ensure their Democratic opponents have the funding and people necessary to activate voters and win. That’s what we need you to join this fight now.

The Payback Project is re-launching its peer-to-peer textbanking outreach campaign to engage voters across 10 target states to take action with Indivisibles in their area and mobilize locally to flip their Senate seats. Last time, thousands of Indivisibles answered the call and we know that so many of you are ready to activate again.

No matter if you’re brand-new to this or a long-time leader, we’re asking you to sign on right now to commit to do the work to win back the Senate this fall — sign up and we’ll send you everything you need to start reaching key voters!

Finally! We have the opportunity to stop new fossil fuel projects in our county, for good. For the past four years, STAND.earth has organized over and over to renew the temporary stop on unrefined fossil fuel expansion. Every six months, hundreds of us came together to write letters to council members, and then we showed up at council meetings wearing our red shirts to show our support. We’ve put in all this work so that bold, permanent protections could be put in place to protect Cherry Point.

And this is the moment we’ve been building up to – we expect the protections to get sent back to the Whatcom Council for a final review soon. If the Council votes to pass a bold policy, the protections will be permanent and we’ll never have to renew them again.

Will you join us in calling on Whatcom County’s leaders to pass strong, permanent protections from fossil fuel expansions?

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/
