NEWS & UPDATES


New Postcard Campaign!

Our first postcard campaign wrapped up with about 75,000 personalized cards being sent to Pinellas independent voters who were not registered to vote by mail. We just learned from the Board of Elections that over 10,000 Pinellas voters signed up for vote by mail in May with independent voters registering at nearly twice the rate as Republicans.

Our new campaign involves preparing cards for vote by mail Democrats who haven’t sent in their ballots two weeks after they received them. We are preparing and stamping the cards now and will put labels on them two weeks before election day. By doing this we hope to drive up voter participation among vote by mail Democrats.

We’d love for you to join us. If you want to learn more about the campaign please go to our website via this link:

Elections Matter: Amy Siskind Discusses Voting and What’s at Stake

Online: Thursday, July 09, 2020, 8:00 PM 
Florida Indivisibles and other Resistance Groups will have the opportunity to hear from American activist, writer, and national spokeswoman Amy Siskind. She is the author of The List: A Week-by-Week Reckoning of Trump’s First Year (2018) and organizer of the We the People March.

Siskind’s national radio and television appearances include CNN, Fox News, MSNBC, CNBC, PBS and NPR. Writers from The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, POLITICO, and The Hill frequently reach out to Siskind.

Amy is also an expert on helping women and girls advance and succeed. A former Wall Street executive, she is the president and co-founder of The New Agenda, a national organization working on issues including economic independence and advancement, gender representation and bias, and campus sexual assault.  

Amy’s advocacy for equality now occurs alongside her mission as one of the most thorough and vocal observers of our failing-but-not-yet-failed democracy.
