Tuesday, September 4 - #saveSCOTUS / Postcard Posse

Actions You Can Take Today

 

Action 1: Sign Up to Join our Massive Phone Bank to #saveSCOTUS

The Senate's hearings for Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh start Tuesday September 4th. Senators Duckworth and Durbin have each have each been publicly critical of this uniquely controversial candidate and the way his nomination to Supreme Court was made and has rushed through to the. But several senators have not made a public decision and can still be swayed.  

We’re reaching out to those senators constituents to stop Brett Kavanaugh and #SaveSCOTUS. Sign up to join our massive phone bank for one of our upcoming shifts, and we’ll send you everything you need to take part.

If Trump is successful at getting Kavanaugh confirmed, the Court will work to preserve the Trump agenda for decades to come. Key issues that affect us all hang in the balance, including reproductive rights, access to health care, LGBTQ rights, environmental protections, and much more.

 

If the phone bank is full..

Head over to our Midterm Election Get Out the Vote (GOTV) page. No matter what happens with Kavanaugh, we need to flip the congress in order to have any accountability on the Trump administration. Help flip neighborhood districts and get a congress that does its job.

Action 2: Postcard Posse League Night on Tuesday 9/4

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 4, 2018 from 6:30 PM  8:30 PM at the Conrad Sultzer Library - 4455 N Lincoln, Chicago, IL 60625; 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!
