Action 1: Rally for the #TrialoftheCentury 10/29
On October 29, 21 youth will confront the federal government at the #TrialoftheCentury in court.
They are the #youthvgov plaintiffs in Juliana v. United States, and they allege that the U.S. government has knowingly violated their constitutional rights for over 50 years by contributing to climate change. They're asking for a science-based National Climate Recovery Plan. This plan would end the reign of fossil fuels and require the United States government to do its part to stop dangerous climate change for young people and all future generations.
These brave youth need your help! Join us for a rally at the federal courthouse in Illinois to be a part of the #TrialoftheCentury and support these young climate warriors. Our freedom depends on a climate system that will sustain human life. Let's show the government that it has a duty to prepare and implement a Climate Recovery Plan to protect our basic and most fundamental rights!
Action 2: Get Out the Vote for The Last Weekend
The most effective time to knock doors to get out the vote is the last four days before the election. Sign up for the last weekend now and pledge to knock on doors and make sure the voters get to the polls.
Indivisible Chicago is working to make it easy to get out to the suburbs and get out the vote. For the Casten and Underwood campaigns, we will be meeting in Chicago and carpooling out to the suburbs. If you need a ride, we will make sure you have one.
There is no need to have canvassed before as the offices will be expecting first timers. This is the easiest canvassing you can do as you will be talking to people who the offices have already identified as Democrats. We are just making sure they get out and vote.
Action 3: Help Elect Beto O’Rourke
Senatorial candidate Beto O’Rourke has a real chance of unseating Senator Ted Cruz in Texas. Early voting runs from now until November 2 in Texas. To win, we need all hands on deck to contact Texas voters during this crucial period so we can tell them to take advantage of early voting!
That’s why the Beto campaign is inviting people from around the country to Come Back to Texas. Thousands of volunteers are joining together in the largest get out the vote campaign in Texas history.
If you fill out the form, an organizer on the campaign will contact you, provide training, assist with trip logistics and connect you with campaign staff when you arrive in Texas. If finances might be a barrier, fill out the form anyway. The campaign will work with you directly to figure out how we can support you to get here and volunteer. If you can’t make it, we understand!
Another way you can help is by hosting a phone bank for Beto near you—fill out the form here to get started.
