Monday, September 24 - Team JB Weekend of Action / Postcard Posse / Indivisible Chicago Podcast

Actions You Can Take Today

 

Action 1: Team JB Weekend of Action 9/29-30

For the last four years, Governor Bruce Rauner has failed to fight for gun control, healthcare, community resources and education. Illinois can’t handle four more years of failed leadership. That’s why we need to elect a Democrat in November who will fight for progressive values and stand up against Trump.

You have the chance to help make that happen! Candidate JB Pritzker is holding a weekend of action with volunteer opportunities across the state. On September 29 and 30, you can join thousands of progressives across Illinois to canvass and phone bank for JB.

See all of the volunteer opportunities in your area and sign up today!

Action 2: 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:

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 3: Listen to the Indivisible Chicago Podcast with Mary Edly-Allen

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.

Mary Edly-Allen is running for State Representative in the 51st District—which includes Libertyville, Lake Zurich, Long Grove, Hawthorn Woods— against a tea party candidate whose views align perfectly with the current president. An elementary school teacher, Mary Edly-Allen is on the right side of every issue. Now all she needs a little wind at her back.

Opening: The rise of the GOP went through Wisconsin in 1854. From the inevitable ruins of the Trump Presidency, might a new party arise out of Nebraska?
