Action 1: TOMORROW - Postcard Posse League Night
Indivisible Chicago’s Postcard Posse League (like a bowling league, but knocking down Trump sycophants instead of pins) is writing postcards to voters ahead of the midterms. Join in and write to win prizes and, more importantly, help elect people who share your values! We will count up postcards for each team and keep the standings.
We will be writing postcards to voters who share our values and voted in 2016, but did not vote in 2014. We are going to turn them out for the midterms! We will be writing postcards to Sean Casten's district (IL-6) and Lauren Underwood's (IL-14) to start, and we will expand to other districts as interest dictates.
It does not cost anything to enter--just your time, effort, and hand cramps. Postcards will be provided, and we will cover the postage for postcards filled out during league events.
Get more information and sign up for Postcard Posse updates, and plan to attend an upcoming league night:
Tuesday, September 11 from 6:30 PM 8:30 PM at Gideon Welles (4500 N Lincoln); sign up here
If you don't want to write postcards, but still want to help, you can donate to help cover the cost of postage. 100 postcards will require $35 in postage, so every dollar helps!
Action 2: Get Out the Vote Rally 9/15
We have only weeks left before the midterm elections, and we need to win the House back more than ever to put a check on the Trump administration.
Join local Indivisible Groups for a Get Out the Vote Rally in Chicago Heights featuring Kelley Robinson, National Organizing Director for Planned Parenthood Action Fund. Meet fellow progressives and get fired up to make the #BlueWave happen so we can take back the House...and the Senate!
Action 3: Listen to the Indivisible Chicago Podcast - Episode 069
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 into upcoming efforts around the city.
Segment 1: Tom talks to mayoral candidate Lori Lightfoot at the end of a week that began with the departure of the current mayor from the race. Lightfoot has a lot to say about Emanuel’s performance over the past eight years, and how she would manage the city as mayor. Indivisible Chicago is not currently endorsing in this race.
