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.

Urge Our Senators To Honor Justice Ginsberg’s Last Request
We are saddened by the passing of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg who was a movement sister that championed democracy and the rule of law.
Unfortunately, with no respect for this great loss to our nation, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is already positioning Trump’s next pick to fill the vacant seat.
Mitch McConnell’s hypocrisy can not be overlooked. Mitch McConnell stonewalled Obama’s pick of Merrick Garland for 236 days in waiting for Trump to become the president-elect. Right now there are 46 days until a new president is elected.
Justice Ginsberg shared this statement with her granddaughter “My most fervent wish is that I will not be replaced until a new president is installed.”
Let’s celebrate RBG’s legacy with action and sign on to this letter campaign that will be delivered to Florida Senator’s Marco Rubio and Rick Scott. We are urging them to come out publicly and announce their agreement with a past statement made by Mitch McConnell stated, “The American people should have a voice in the selection of their next Supreme Court Justice. Therefore, this vacancy should not be filled until we have a new president.”

Get Out The Vote Pinellas 2020
Fired Up Pinellas & Indivisible FL-13 are calling for a small army of volunteers to distribute literature across Pinellas County about candidates, amendments and voting plan details for the Pinellas County Democrats.
Literature delivery – IMMEDIATE NEED!!!
Literature needs to distributed to many thousands of residences (Democrats and Left-leaning NPA (Non-Party Affiliates)) between now and October 5th!
We won’t knock on doors or try to have conversations; we’ll just hang the literature on the doorknob or lean it against the door.
