Activism is at the heart of what Indivisible Bellingham is all about.
We all do what we can, but we need to make sure that the ACTION part of our mission – “non-violent civic engagement, political involvement, and consistent pressure on elected officials” – is not just some empty promise.
Here is a list of upcoming events. Choose one. Choose several.
Be more than a bystander.
EVERY MONDAY – Dignity Vigils, Hosted by Keep Bellingham Families Working – 11:30 a.m to 1: 30 p.m. – WTA Bus Station on Railroad Ave. and Magnolia, Bellingham
Every Monday, community members come together to stand in solidarity with undocumented and immigrant families and people. In addition, we come together to stand against law enforcement and federal immigration collaboration which leads to deportation. Dignity Vigils will take place at strategic downtown locations. Please first come to Bellingham City Hall and pick up banners, flyers, and instructions. Support undocumented and immigrant families to live in safety and dignity in our community. Come together and join in building power in people!
This event is held in an outdoor venue which is wheelchair accessible. Please message the page if other accommodations are needed so we can work to assist with those. Or you can contact us with any queries at: C2C-Vigil-Dialogue@Qwestoffice.net.
Bring your friends and co-workers to let the city and county councils know that we are not leaving until we have an ordinance and mechanisms in place that offer true protections for members of our undocumented immigrant community!
Monday, August 20 – Indivisible All Hands Meeting – 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. – Bellingham Unitarian Fellowship, 1207 Ellsworth St, Bellingham
PLANNING: Indivisible Voting Block-Party Planning (September 23, 2018) – We are deep into planning a gathering similar to last year’s Indivisible Rising event in August, 2017. Our date, September 23rd , will be a few short weeks before online and mail-in voter registration ends, and also a month and a half out from the 2018 mid-term elections. Let’s bring the community out to make sure they are registered to vote and commit to voting when ballots are mailed.
1. Voter registration ahead of the November election
2. Celebrating the principles of fairness, inclusion, tolerance, and justice for all.
3. Inclusion of multiple communities in political activism (schools, artists, musicians, students, women, churches, labor, LGBTQ, immigrants and seasonal workers, homeless)
4. Opportunities for civic and progressive organizations to speak to these communities through tabling
– Core coordinating group
– Media outreach – posters/fliers, newspapers, radio, TV, interviews
– Sound system/PA
– Organization outreach
– Kids activities
Will you step up and chair or become involved in one or more of these groups? We need your time, expertise, ideas, and commitment. Contact Doug and Kevin at email@example.com.
We’ll have pizza provided, but bring finger-food and snack food to share, if you like! BYO drink.
SAVE THE DATE: Indivisible Bellingham’s All Hands Meetings are EVERY Third Monday of each month at B.U.F.
Bring a friend! We look forward to seeing you!
NEXT MEETING: September 17 – Indivisible Bellingham All Hands Meeting, 6 to 8 p.m. Bellingham Unitarian Fellowship, 1207 Ellsworth St., Bellingham
