Indivisible volunteers believe in the promise of democracy as the best path to achieving liberty and justice for all. Together, we're taking action to build a real democracy that reflects a broad, multiracial “we the people,” one that works for all of us and is sustained by all of us.
ACTION: Call Congressman Garamendi's office and urge him to help speed up the passage of H.R. 51 - the DC Statehood bill. You can call any or all of his offices, day or night.
Hi, my name is [name] and my zip code is [zip code]. I’m a voter calling is support of H.R. 51, the D.C. Statehood bill.
Please let Congressman Garamendi know that I'm thankful that he's a co-sponsor of this bill. And please ask him to use his influence to move it forward so it can be voted on in the House as soon as possible. Washington D.C.'s 700,000 residents deserve full representation in Congress. Thank you.
ACTION: Use Indivisible's tools to get sample letter to the editor templates about the For the People Act, D.C. statehood and eliminating the filibuster. Go here and scroll down to the Letters to the Editor section.
MORE INFO: Letters to the editor might not seem like the flashiest way to get the attention of your Members of Congress. But there’s something about a sharp letter to the editor in a hometown paper that can really get under the skin of the most powerful lawmaker.
Here's where to send letters to the editor for Colusa County's local papers:
Pioneer Review: Email your letter to firstname.lastname@example.org
Appeal-Democrat: Use this form
Sacramento Bee: Use this form
ACTION: Come to the Fixing Our Democracy Action Hour every Sunday at 5 PM through April 25. Taking action is easier, more impactful and more fun when we do it together. Join via this Zoom link.
MORE INFO: Each week, after a brief review of Indivisible's democracy reform priorities, Indivisible Yolo and Colusa organizers will take the group through easy and effective actions to defend our democracy.
The clock is ticking. We have a very short window of time for Democrats in Congress to use the majority that we built to expand voting rights, combat corruption, and build a more participatory electoral process. But they're not going to do it without pressure from us. A representative democracy is within our reach -- but we must demand it.
Indivisible's Soapboxx tool makes it easy for you to record a video letting your members of Congress know why the For the People Act and DC Statehood are important to you. Check out ICC volunteer Jennifer's video below and then click on the "Record a video" button to find out about making your own.
Four years ago, the Indivisible Guide provided millions of Americans with a road map for resisting the Trump agenda. Together, we defeated Trump, making him the first one-term president in decades. Now it's time for us to defeat the forces that allowed him to rise and that continue to threaten our democracy.
To understand the context for the pro-democracy actions the Indivisible movement is prioritizing this year, read the 2021 Indivisible Guide, a blueprint for fixing our democracy.
