Tools You Can Use

Action 1: TONIGHT - DACA Know Your Rights Event

Trump’s order rescinding DACA is the height of cruelty. He has now put 800,000 young people at the mercy of a Congress who has shown time and time again that they cannot pass legislation. To give guidance to DACA recipients and to educate the community, Indivisible Pilsen, Rise and Organize, and Indivisible Chicago/Illinois have organized the DACA Know Your Rights Event.

DACA recipients are invited to learn about their rights, get moral support from a community of peers, and form coalitions that will make the #HereToStay movement stronger. A panel of experts from ICIRR, ACLU, and more will share resources and address what comes next. DACA supporters are invited to find out the misconceptions and truths about DACA.

DACA Know Your Rights will be held on Wednesday, September 13 from 7 p.m. to 8:45 p.m. at Catalyst Ranch (656 West Randolph Street #3W). RSVP here

A special thanks to Catalyst Ranch for hosting!

Action 2: Call on Senators to Stop Trumpcare 3.0

The Senate’s new Graham-Cassidy is strikingly similar to earlier TrumpCare bills. While we have not seen final details, we know it still destroys Medicaid as we know it by fundamentally and permanently transforming the program into a per-capita cap.

The bill also still undermines protections for people with pre-existing conditions and people who need treatment for opioid abuse by allowing states to waive essential health benefits. Learn more about this harmful bill.

We must keep the pressure on our Senators to vote “no” on this dangerous bill.
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 ______ and my zip code is _____. I'm a member of Indivisible Chicago. I'm calling to ask the Senator to oppose the Graham-Cassidy Act, which is essentially TrumpCare 3.0. It still destroys Medicaid as we know it by fundamentally and permanently transforming the program into a per-capita cap. The bill also still undermines protections for people with pre-existing conditions and people who need treatment for opioid abuse by allowing states to waive essential health benefits.

Action 3: Join the #NoMuslimBanEver campaign

Indivisible is a proud partner of the #NoMuslimBanEver campaign. On October 10, the Supreme Court of the United States will be hearing two cases about the Muslim and refugee bans, Trump v. Int'l Refugee Assistance Project and Trump v. Hawaii. The Supreme Court will decide whether the executive order from the Trump Administration that temporarily bans travel from six Muslim-majority countries (Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen) and suspends the refugee admissions process violates the Establishment Clause and Equal Protection Clause of the United States Constitution.

The Muslim and refugee bans are discriminatory, unconstitutional and inhumane in the same vein as the Chinese Exclusion Act, the Japanese American incarceration, and special registration after 9/11. We must remember history and raise our voices, both in the critical weeks before the SCOTUS hearing and in the months ahead. Join us in declaring No. Muslim. Ban. Ever.

Head over to their new website at www.nomuslimbanever.com and join the campaign! You can also follow the hashtag #NoMuslimBanEver on Twitter.
