Help us meet our post card goal!
Our weekly postcard party at Allendale United Methodist Church is suspended until further notice due to Covid-19. We are now distributing postcard kits for folks to write at home.
Presently, we have 240 Pinellas County volunteers preparing personalized postcards for other Pinellas voters who are not currently signed up for vote by mail. We also have recruited Indivisible groups in Los Angeles, San Jose, San Francisco and Portland OR.
Currently we have about 20,000 post cards completed and ready to mail!
Our target group is 80,000 non-politically affiliated left-leaning voters in Pinellas County.

Save The Post Office Toolkit
The USPS is in peril. The White House has long sought to privatize the Postal Service and they are using the Coronavirus crisis to accomplish this goal.
To date, the White House has successfully resisted stimulus funding for the Postal Service. Secretary of Treasury, Steve Mnuchin, has blocked financial relief for the Postal Service and indicated that the inclusion of postal funding in future stimulus legislation will end negotiations.

Allendale United Methodist Church has been a friend to Indivisible FL-13 and other progressive groups in the age of Trump. For nearly four years that I know of and probably longer they have been a safe and welcoming space for numerous progressive activist groups and causes.
In this time of Covid-19 they are struggling with decreasing offerings and donations. If you are able please visit their web site and make a donation of any size. Every little bit adds up. The give link is in the upper right or click here to go directly there.
Please mention Indivisible FL-13 in the optional comments field. Thank you and thank Allendale United Methodist Church for their help and encouragement.
Weekly Demonstrations Go Virtual During Pandemic
Contact John Stewart at email@example.com for information on the weekly virtual demonstration. Every Monday or Tuesday he is sending out the current week’s topic and virtual protest signs to his direct contacts.
Or just contact your Senators every Tuesday with your current concerns:
Below is contact information for the Senators’ offices in the federal
courthouse in downtown Tampa where we protest every Tuesday. Once a week you help stage a virtual demonstration by contacting the offices by phone and/or e-mail to let them know your concerns. You can let them know this is part of the Tuesday morning virtual demonstration.
We can keep a regular presence on line, even if we don’t in the flesh.
One request: the staff in the two offices have always been professional and
courteous to us. No matter what you think of their bosses’ morals and
policies, please be polite to the staff when you communicate. We have
nothing to gain by being hostile or rude.
Here is the contact information:
Senator Rubio’s office: (813) 853-1099
Senator Scott’s office: (813) 225-7040
This will be a great way to keep active and, once the crisis has passed, to
amplify the voices of those demonstrating. Not everyone has the ability or
inclination to demonstrate, so we can let the senators know that there are
countless people who agree with those who are in front of their offices
