Action 1: Tell Senators - Protect Mueller Report

Robert Mueller, the special counsel investigating Russian interference in the 2016 elections, is required to submit a report of his findings to the Department of Justice upon completion of his investigation. There is understandable concern that the Trump administration will ensure that Mueller’s report is heavily censored or not made public at all. Confounding the issue is Trump’s nominee for Attorney General William Barr, who has indicated he might not make the report public saying he would “provide as much transparency as I can consistent with the law.”

In order to ensure public release of this critical information, Senators Blumenthal and Grassley have introduced a bipartisan bill that would require that the findings of the Mueller investigation be made fully available to both Congress and the public. Importantly, this requirement is also triggered if a special counsel is fired or resigned, providing a further layer of protection against interference in the investigation. Senators need to hear from their constituents that the American people have a right to know what the Mueller investigation uncovers about Russian interference in the 2016 election.

 Senator Duckworth | DC: 202-224-2854 | Chicago 312-886-3506
Senator Durbin | DC: 202-224-2152 | Chicago 312-353-4952

Script: Hi, my name is [NAME] and I’m a constituent from [zip code] and a member of Indivisible. I'm calling today because I'm very concerned about potential suppression of the findings of the Mueller investigation. I expect [SENATOR] to vote in favor of the Special Counsel Transparency Act, which will ensure the findings are made fully available to the public. Thank you for your time and attention.

Action 2: Conversations with Lori Lightfoot and Amara Enyia on 2/13

Aiming to help voters learn more about the lesser-known progressives on the ballot for Mayor of Chicago, Indivisible Chicago is holding a public meeting to talk with two progressive candidates who are relative newcomers as candidates for public office: Lori Lightfoot and Amara Enyia.

These two candidates sit farthest to the left of the political spectrum, yet our members seem to know the least about them. That’s why we’re organizing a meeting with only these two candidates, moderated by Indivisible Chicago Podcast host Tom Mossand Marj Halperin, Indivisible Chicago Executive Committee member and Democratic Analyst for the WGN-TV Morning News.

Indivisible Chicago’s new Progressive Principles will be the basis for interviews, with additional questions specific to each candidate, and questions from our members. Attendees will be invited to submit questions on index cards throughout the event. We hope you’ll join us!

When: Wednesday, February 13 from 6:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.
Where: Second Presbyterian Church (1936 Michigan Avenue)
RSVP here for free tickets

 NOTE: This event does not represent an endorsement, and Indivisible Chicago will not be endorsing any candidates for Mayor.
