ANTI-RACIST EDUCATION IN ACTION-PRESCOTT (AREA-P)
Zoom meeting scheduled: Wednesday, August 19 @ 5:00pm
A new team for Prescott Indivisible– “Anti-Racist Education in Action- Prescott” (AREA-P). We meet twice monthly to learn about whiteness, and also about racism in history, in our community, in our country, and within ourselves. Both Prescott and Arizona, sadly have reputations of being welcoming to those that would like to see an exclusive “white” country. AREA-P formed in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement, as well as in service to our community and state.
For information or to join: firstname.lastname@example.org
All who care about fighting against racism and fostering equity are welcome.

FROM MAVIS BRAUER, Chair PI Prescott
August 6 General Meeting (GM):
At the General Meeting on August 6, members unanimously endorsed candidates Joe Biden for President of the U. S., Mark Kelly for U. S. Senate, and Delina DiSanto for U. S. Representative from Congressional District 4. Delina spoke briefly, thanking us for the endorsement and asking for our support, both as volunteers and financially. This is the time for all of us to step up and help vote out Gosar.
National Endorsement of Delina DiSanto:
At the GM, we also agreed to put forward DiSanto’s name for National Indivisible’s endorsement. Maria Lynam submitted that application on Friday, August 7.
WHAT YOU NEED TO DO for Delina to be officially endorsed by Indivisible–
National will be requesting votes from all Indivisible members in CD4. She needs the confirming votes of 66% of all members
Request a ballot. Sign up HERE.
You will not be sent an e-ballot until Delina has been vetted by National which may take a couple of weeks but sign up now!

Disinformation in the 2020 Election:
This is a huge issue! Yesterday National Indivisible hosted a Windivisible conference and one of the 50-minute sessions addressed “Leveraging People Power to Combat Online Disinformation” – really good with lots of usable information! As soon as I receive the link to that recording, I will let you know so we can watch it on Zoom together.
VOTING RIGHTS FROM THE VOTER VALUES PROJECT
LINK TO VVP Voter Information article on the PI Website: HERE
The Voter Values Project of Prescott Indivisible has gathered data on voting eligibility and practices for Arizonans. This week’s update discusses voting by mail. Voting by mail isn’t a new idea. Every state already has some kind of vote-by-mail program in place. Arizona offers an absentee ballot upon request with no excuse needed. Arizonans who request absentee ballots also get to vote early in the process.
In addition, voters can opt to always receive an early mail-in ballot by signing up for PEVL (Permanent Early Voting List – pronounced like “pebble” but with a “v”) and receive their ballots a few weeks before any election. At present, 80% of registered voters in Arizona are utilizing this feature.
If you aren’t a PEVL voter, click here to sign up before the November election.
If you have a friend or family member who isn’t signed up for PEVL – explain the benefits. Their votes are counted and available within hours of the close of the polls.
Thank you!. Voter Values Project Prescott Indivisible

RECOMMENDED READING from Rosemary Dixon
The forty-year attack on government…
and the long game for the common good. by Donald Cohen
Beyond the specifics policies, actions and tweets, Trump’s presidency has made clear that we are in values war. The conflict between unfettered individualism and the collective pursuit of the common good has endured in American culture and politics since the earliest days of the republic. But over the last forty-plus years, the assault on public solutions and the common good has reached unprecedented levels of intensity and sophistication.
