Prescott Indivisible Action Alert – June 20, 2020

5 mins read

Prescott Indivisible is a non-partisan community which seeks to promote a progressive and inclusive agenda in support of human rights and the environment.


 In a press conference on Wednesday, Gov. Ducey announced that “he will allow cities, town and counties to make the decision concerning face coverings.” With Arizona’s Covid cases on the rise, the mayors of Prescott, Prescott Valley and Chino Valley still say the wearing of a mask is not required.

Call Mayor Mengarelli at (928) 777-1248 and then go HERE and send him an email. 

If you live in Chino Valley call Mayor Darryl Croft, 928-636-2646.

If you live in Prescott Valley call Mayor Kell Pallguta, 928-759-3100, and send an email TO:

Leave a message telling them to mandate wearing a mask in Prescott/Chino Valley/Prescott Valley because the number of Covid cases are rising, and because wearing masks has been proven to be extremely effective when social distancing is not possible

The following is an email letter that I plan to send to Mayor Mengarelli which is going to be “hand delivered” by John Heiney.
Mavis Brauer, Chair, Prescott Indivisible

Dear Mayor Mengarelli,
We, the Prescott Indivisible Steering Committee, are writing in light of Governor’s Ducey’s empowerment of local governments to establish and enforce regulations in their individual municipalities related to wearing masks. 

The increase in our state’s COVID-19 numbers is alarming and the strain on our healthcare system is unsustainable.  Transmission risks are increasing as people travel from region to region as our state continues on a path of re-opening.  As Mayor, you are well aware of the popularity of our area and that the influx of tourists has grown each week since Arizona’s “stay at home” directive expired. 

The people of our city and the surrounding area depend on our elected leaders to protect the health and safety of all who live, work, and visit here just as you protect yourself by wearing a mask.  We urge you to institute common sense regulations for mask wearing in public areas and in private establishments (stores, restaurants) when there is a reasonable expectation that people will come into contact with each other with less than 6 feet of physical distance from people other then their household members. That includes, but is not limited to, walking on sidewalks, gathering in open-air venues or public spaces, and being in commercial establishments.   

We also urge you to enact these rules as soon as possible under your existing authority.  Every day that enforceable rules are not in place risks the possibility of additional COVID-19 transmission.  

Our lives depend on your ability to stand up to political forces.  Please put the well being of people first.  
Thank you.
Mavis Brauer, Chair Prescott Indivisible

Wear a mask when you go out, wash your hands and
practice social distancing.

Prescott Indivisible was founded in 2017, when Paul Hamilton and Nicole Romine put an ad in the local paper, requesting local progressives to show up at the library. Over 100 people lined up. In short order, we had formed a local chapter of the national Indivisible movement. Within six months we adopted a set of Guidelines that sets the framework in which we work, designed a logo and printed and sold t-shirts. Our mailing list quickly expanded from 100 to over 1,200. We usually have 100 or more attend our general monthly meetings.

Prescott Indivisible has a strong track record of activism. We adopted the team concept: Communication/Events; Voter Education and Elections; Education; Environment; Human Rights; Immigration and Peacekeepers to assist with safely issues. Initially we had a steering committee that consisted of volunteers. After our guidelines were adopted, the steering committee is made up of elected officers and members at large and the heads of the various teams, or their designees. A diverse group of community activists, social justice advocates and others that have volunteer ties to non-profits and religious organizations, the steering committee assists the teams when asked and sets the agendas.

Our teams and their members have worked diligently to make their voices heard. We have made thousands of calls, mailed hundreds of postcards to our legislators in Arizona and in congress. We have collaborated with like-minded organizations to advocate for issues of crucial importance to Arizona and the nation.
