Actions You Can Take Today

Action 1: TOMORROW - Last Postcard Posse for Lauren Underwood

In the last few months, the rock stars in the Postcard Posse League have handwritten thousands of postcards to voters who share our values and voted in 2016, but did not vote in 2014.

We thought we were all done, but it turns out there are still 1,000 postcards that we can send to voters in Lauren Underwood’s district, IL-14. Please come out tomorrow to help us get this last batch of postcards out in support of Lauren!

When: Tuesday, October 30 from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
Where: Green Eye Tavern (2403 W Homer St.)
RSVP here

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.

Sign up for The Last Weekend and we will follow up with you with everything you need to know to get out the vote and take back the House.

Action 3: Listen to the Indivisible Chicago Podcast with Kwame Raoul

Every Sunday, Indivisible Chicago members Tom Moss releases a new episode of the Indivisible Chicago Podcast (ICP). It’s a great way to keep up with the latest news about the Indivisible movement on a local level and to stay plugged in to upcoming efforts around the city.

Opening: Moss’s Hierarchy of Action explained.

Segment 1: Kwame Raoul emerged from a packed field of highly qualified Democratic challengers in the March primary for Illinois Attorney General. In eight days, Illinois will choose between the candidate who believes in protecting Obamacare, in LGBTQ rights, and protecting women’s reproductive rights, and the one who does not.

Segment 2: Anu Sarda from Swing Left and Indivisible Chicago joins to impress upon all of us the need to do a little something extra between now and election day. What are you going to do to help between now and Election Day when every little bit helps. Raise your hand at thelastweekend.org/indivisiblechicago
