Video and Slides from Dr. Dale Anderson Presentation
Indivisible Florida Network is sharing the presentation and video link to the powerful presentation we had on Wednesday with Dr. Dale Anderson as he discussed Voter Suppression and Democracy Degradation. Dr. Anderson was amazing and he is kind enough to share this with us in hopes that we share his message with people we know.
The MAGA Supreme Court – an Attack on Democracy
Florida Indivisibles and other Resistance Groups are taking on the Maga Supreme Court and their attack on democracy.
Join us on Saturday, September 26 at 10:30 am via Zoom.
The Supreme Court has been packed with ultra-conservative white men, and the decisions made by this court will impact the lives of every person in this country for decades. But the situation is actually worse than that – Trump has packed the lower courts with unqualified and extreme justices, too.
Join us to hear more and to find out what we can do to fight back!
Our speakers, Julia Peters (Center for Popular Democracy) and Robert Scott (Demand Justice) have an eye-opening presentation that you won’t want to miss!
Presented by Palm Beach Indivisibles and Indivisible Florida Network.

Legal Observer Training
Social Justice Struggle
In Pinellas County and other Counties, people are marching for Social Justice and against police brutality and misconduct. People are planning to vote.
Want to join in the fight for Social Justice? Now?
You can by being a legal observer. A legal observer is someone who watches, listens and documents any suspicious activity they see during a March/Gathering/Protest. They report it to their Team Captain in the event something untoward happens to one of the Protestors/Marchers.
Like getting arrested. Like being the victim of police over-stepping their bounds.
Legal Observers attend demonstrations at the request of the Organizers. Observers are there to watch and document. They may be called upon to tell the public and the Courts what they witnessed and share what they saw. Sometimes this witnessing helps people arrested without cause.
At the latest training session, 8.13. 20, people from Pinellas and Pasco Counties gathered on Zoom to hear James Shaw, Tampa attorney, talk about Community Based Legal Observer Training. Not minimizing the potential danger from Police and weapons such as tear gas of many types that are often used, Shaw calmly and methodically went through the definition of a Legal Observer, the dangers that could be faced, how to act in general and with the Police.
The program was held by ACLU Pinellas County. Although the ACLU is temporarily not supporting Legal Observer training due to Covid19, around the country groups are responding to the growing need for such assistance.
We all need more Legal Observers. The training, from aTampa attorney who has trained hundreds of people over the years, only takes one hour. It is valuable for those who want to be observers or demonstrators and those who want to learn more.
If you want to be included, please contact Llani O’Connor, ACLU. firstname.lastname@example.org or 312.952.9379. Please leave your name, email & phone we know how many are coming. The training will be held on Zoom, September 9, 2020; Meeting ID is 845 4609 6892 https://us02web.zoom.us/j/84546096892. Please come and tell your family, friends, colleagues and others in your sphere of influence.
This is one way you can help protect free speech, act for social justice and call attention to police brutality.
