Indivisible Action Alert: Virtual Rural Summit
This Saturday, June 27

The Indivisible Virtual Rural Summit is this Saturday, June 27th!

Check out the promo video featuring Prescott Indivisible members. Thank you to the volunteers who represented us so well and to Bill Court for the video work!

During the Rural Summit PI will have the distinct honor of accepting a ‘Rurrie Award’ for last September’s Neighborhood Summit For Equity. We won in the ‘Visibility For Our Values’ category. Congratulations to everyone who helped make our event such a success!

On Saturday afternoon we will be hosting a virtual round table entitled “Bringing Racial Equity To Rural America”. Facilitated by Rosemary Dixon and Jeff Daverman, we are thrilled to be joined by Indivisible Co-founder Ezra Levin for the discussion.

DemCast is an advocacy-based 501(c)4 nonprofit. We have made the decision to build a media site free of outside influence. There are no ads. We do not get paid for clicks. If you appreciate our content, please consider a small monthly donation.

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.
