We’re still keeping a full calendar of remote events.
Check https://indivisibleyolo.org/calendar/ for the most up-to-date information on actions and events you can join!


Reminder, our General meeting is TONIGHT, July 27th, from 7-8:30pm on Zoom. You can access the meeting with this link: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/87097287493?pwd=bi9xSVBxMVMwd3laN1RwOFk0U3JLdz09. We’ll be discussing our actions, events, and upcoming plans. It’s open to all!

This week, Republicans are expected to fight the HEROES act (the coronavirus relief bill that the House passed in May) by releasing a watered-down version of a relief bill with reduced unemployment benefits and a liability shield to let employers avoid accountability if their employees become ill from the coronavirus. We’re asking our Senators to pass the full HEROES act and not to let the liability shield or the safety net reductions to pass.

We’ve also seen the outrageous actions of federal agents in Portland who have been kidnapping protestors off the street and forcing them into unmarked vehicles. Since Trump is using DHS personnel to attack protestors, we’re asking our members of congress to speak out about this, and to withhold any DHS funds that could be used for these attacks.

Below, you can find example call scripts and contact information to contact our members of congress.

Tell our Senators to pass the HEROES Act without watering it down:

Sample Call Script for Sen. Harris and Feinstein:
Hello, my name is [YOUR NAME] and I am a constituent from [CITY/Zip Code]. I’m calling Senator Harris/Feinstein to urge her to do everything possible to ensure that the HEROES Act is considered and passed in the Senate without watering it down. The bill includes necessary protections to keep people on payrolls, provide financial relief, protect our public health, and defend democracy. The Senator should strongly support the HEROES Act and its protections for working families. People are struggling to make ends meet. We need every protection in the HEROES Act to pass or lives will be at stake.

I’m appalled that the Republicans are trying to cut pandemic unemployment benefits from the bill and give employers a liability shield when they harm their employees. Please support the Heroes Act, and don’t let Republicans include any of their harmful provisions. Thank you!


Tell our Members of Congress: don’t let Trump’s secret police snatch people off of the streets!

Sample call script for Sen. Harris:
Hello, my name is [YOUR NAME] and I am a constituent from [CITY/Zip Code]. I thank Senator Harris for speaking up about unidentified federal agents snatching people off the streets in Portland, Oregon, but I’m concerned that she thinks the problem is limited to their cars being unmarked. There is only one word for being seized and dragged into a van by masked assailants in paramilitary attire who refuse to identify themselves, and that word is “kidnapping.”

I ask the Senator to make a stronger statement condemning these agencies’ actions unreservedly, and to use all power available to her to oppose this unconstitutional deployment of force against protesters exercising their rights, including withholding any DHS funding that could be used for this oppression.

Sample call script for Sen. Feinstein:
Hello, my name is [YOUR NAME] and I am a constituent from [CITY/Zip Code]. I’m concerned by Senator Feinstein’s silence about unidentified federal agents snatching people off the streets in Portland. There is only one word for being seized and dragged into a van by masked assailants in paramilitary attire who refuse to identify themselves, and that word is “kidnapping.” It is not justified at any time, and certainly not at a time when the administration is claiming that graffiti and property damage are an excuse to slander innocent protesters as “violent anarchists.”

I expect my senator to speak up in the name of justice, free speech, and the rights of people to petition their government for redress of grievances, and to do everything in her power to oppose this unconstitutional deployment of force against protesters exercising their rights, including withholding any DHS funding that could be used for this oppression.

Sample call script for Rep. Garamendi:
Hello, my name is [YOUR NAME] and I am a constituent from [CITY/Zip Code]. I’m calling because I was shocked at the actions of federal agents snatching people off the streets in Portland, Oregon. I’m asking Representative Garamendi to speak out about this, and do everything in his power to oppose this unconstitutional deployment of force against protesters exercising their rights, including withholding any DHS funding that could be used for this oppression.
