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!
Every Thursday – Justice for Birchwood, Hosted by Community to Community Development – 5:00 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. – 1650 Birchwood Ave, Bellingham
The Birchwood Food Desert Fighters hold a vigil every Thursday from 5:00-6:30 pm to demand access to fresh, affordable food in the Birchwood Neighborhood. Albertson’s closed their doors two years ago after buying out Haggen stores, leaving the Birchwood Neighborhood without an accessible grocery store. Come stand in solidarity for food justice! Meet in the parking lot of the old Albertson’s and proceed to the corner of Northwest and Birchwood Ave.
