Amy Siskind Discusses Authoritarianism and Voter Suppression
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.

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:

Weekly Demonstrations at Scott and Rubio’s office Go Virtual During Pandemic
Contact John Stewart at firstname.lastname@example.org 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 every week.
