Action 1: Tell Senators to Pass the DREAM Act Now

DACA recipients have been waiting for far too long. Many of them are already at risk of deportation, and the clock is ticking. Senator Durbin has, of course, been an amazing champion for the DACA program and deserves all our thanks. And Senator Duckworth has also come out in defense of those allowed to stay and work or go to school here under the DACA program. However, we cannot let Congress leave for the holidays without passing the DREAM Act.

Call our Senators to demand that they keep pushing McConnell to bring the DREAM Act up for a vote before the end of the year.

Call Senator Duckworth | DC:  202-224-2854 | Chicago 312-886-3506
Call Senator Durbin | DC:  202-224-2152 | Chicago 312-353-4952

Script: Hi, my name is ______________ from [zip code], and I’m a member of Indivisible Chicago. I'm calling because, while I appreciate all Senator ______ has done for DACA, we need to push even harder to get it passed before the end of the year. I'd like to ask the Senator to attach the DREAM Act to any must pass legislation that comes up. It's imperative that we ensure a secure future for all DACA recipients after they have placed their trust in our government to protect them.


Action 2: Text Banking to Defeat Roy Moore

On December 12, Alabamians will go the polls to elect their next Senator. And there could not be a clearer choice in the race: a bona fide progressive candidate, Doug Jones, or disgraced, Steve Bannon-endorsed judge, Roy Moore, who is further to the right than any Republican currently in the Senate.

Like so many of the special elections this year, this race is crucial for progressives to win. Betsy DeVos was confirmed in a tie-breaker vote. Neil Gorsuch’s nomination was incredibly close. We beat back the repeal of healthcare by one vote. Gaining a Senate seat would turn narrow losses into likely victories, and put pressure on Republicans who may waver on important bills in the future.

Together in 2017, we’ve resisted the Trump agenda. Now, Indivisibles across Alabama are using the power of our movement -- combined with the best new digital tools -- to reach the voters who can elect Doug Jones,.

And YOU! can support their organizing from Illinois. That’s right. We’ve set up a text-banking program where Indivisibles anywhere can help our Alabama groups get out the vote for this important election. Election Day is December 12, which means we have one week to make a big impact.

Will you sign up for a volunteer shift to stop Roy Moore and elect Doug Jones before E-Day?

What: Indivisible text-banking from Illinois
Where: Anywhere! You just need two spare hours, a comfy chair, and a computer or iPad.
When: 12/9, 12/10, 12/11, and 12/12, from 9am to 9pm CT every day

Sign up for a volunteer shift now.


Action 3: Protest Verizon, Save #NetNeutrality on Thursday

If corporations control the Internet, they control the most important organizing tool of our time.

Join us on Thursday to protest Verizon, an organization that spent $10,080,000 this year lobbying against Net Neutrality. We will stand in solidarity with Internet users across the country outraged at top Verizon lawyer turned FCC Chairman Ajit Pai’s plan to gut net neutrality. This event will mark one week before an expected vote at the FCC. Protesters will make it clear to members of Congress that it is time to stand for #NetNeutrality, not Verizon’s bottom line.

When: Thursday, December 7 from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
Where: Verizon Store (36 S. State Street)

RSVP here

Please remember, this event is about protesting actions of Verizon executives, lobbyists and their supporters in Washington, NOT the employees at these stores.
