Actions You Can Take Today


****Note: If you are getting this email for the first time, it's because you subscribed to the Indivisible Chicago Daily Actions at some point, but due to a database glitch we did not add you to the daily actions list. We have corrected that glitch, so welcome! We are happy to have you on board! If you decide you do not like these daily emails, you can unsubscribe at the bottom of this email. However, taking even one small action every day aggregates up to an immense impact and helps push back against the current administration's regressive policies. Thanks, and welcome! 

Action 1: Prepare for the Net Neutrality Day of Action TOMORROW

Last week, the Federal Communications Commission officially published its order to overturn net neutrality

FCC Chair Ajit Pai is under investigation by the FCC's internal watchdog for bias toward Sinclair in its takeover bid of Tribune—it's not hard to believe that he did the same for Big Cable with the net neutrality vote. We have 60 legislative days to get the Senate to reject the FCC's handout to Big Cable.

Tomorrow, on February 27, Demand Progress and their allies are organizing a massive day of action called Operation: #OneMoreVote to flood the Senate with phone calls from regular folks and small businesses.

It's time to mobilize that public support like never before. Even though FCC Chair Ajit Pai pushed through the repeal of net neutrality rules, a simple majority in Congress can restore the safeguards—and the pro-Big Cable leadership can’t stop them.

We have a huge head start in the Senate, where Maine Republican Susan Collins has joined all 49 Democrats to oppose the FCC's order. We need just one more senator to get to 51.

Sign up to support the Net Neutrality Day of Action TOMORROW, Tuesday, February 27.

Action 3: Listen to the Indivisible Chicago Podcast

Every Sunday, Indivisible Chicago members Tom Moss and Dan Nelson release a new episode of the Indivisible Chicago Podcast. 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.

This week, Tom Moss takes the show on the road to interview former federal prosecutor and current Attorney General candidate Renato Mariotti live on stage at Fitzgerald’s in Berwyn. They talk Russia, gun control, and what an Attorney General can do to stand up to Trump. Also, Indivisible Oak Park Area’s Erika Bachner joins to talk about what’s happening in the neighborhood.

Give it a listen here, and subscribe via iTunes to follow along with new episodes.
