This upcoming Tuesday the Ferris Wheel Project will be making calls to voters with Mission For AZ letting folks know that Mail-In ballots should begin arriving to them in the next week.  As we get closer to the election this year the importance of making these calls sky rockets! If we are going to make a change in Arizona this year we must ensure that all of our neighbors get the opportunity to vote!
Thank you!  Amy Shunk

AREA-P and #LoveYourNeighborAZ work to bring injustice to light through education and action.

We see and can’t accept the normalization of public displays of racism and bigotry in our towns. These have become more frequent, so we decided to write a letter and ask the good-hearted people of our community to read, sign, and stand up publicly for what is right. We asked them to sign on to a message of love for their neighbors. Nearly 1200 did so.  

Many donated, and we raised 7x what we’d originally sought to pay for the letter to be published in local media. We understand that many who signed may have felt a twinge of anxiety about signing on publicly. We are thankful for the over 1100 who made that decision. We are also thankful for the 86 who agreed, but felt perhaps unsafe having their names in print. 
You can read the letter here: https://www.signalsaz.com/articles/an-open-letter-to-our-community-love-your-neighbor-a-moral-imperative/
Please share widely. Please post it in your window and share it on Facebook
 It is an honor to stand with those willing to “get in good trouble”.  Rosemary Dixon, Leader AREA-P Team

DemCast is an advocacy-based 501(c)4 nonprofit. We have made the decision to build a media site free of outside influence. There are no ads. We do not get paid for clicks. If you appreciate our content, please consider a small monthly donation.


Prescott Indivisible was founded in 2017, when Paul Hamilton and Nicole Romine put an ad in the local paper, requesting local progressives to show up at the library. Over 100 people lined up. In short order, we had formed a local chapter of the national Indivisible movement. Within six months we adopted a set of Guidelines that sets the framework in which we work, designed a logo and printed and sold t-shirts. Our mailing list quickly expanded from 100 to over 1,200. We usually have 100 or more attend our general monthly meetings.

Prescott Indivisible has a strong track record of activism. We adopted the team concept: Communication/Events; Voter Education and Elections; Education; Environment; Human Rights; Immigration and Peacekeepers to assist with safely issues. Initially we had a steering committee that consisted of volunteers. After our guidelines were adopted, the steering committee is made up of elected officers and members at large and the heads of the various teams, or their designees. A diverse group of community activists, social justice advocates and others that have volunteer ties to non-profits and religious organizations, the steering committee assists the teams when asked and sets the agendas.

Our teams and their members have worked diligently to make their voices heard. We have made thousands of calls, mailed hundreds of postcards to our legislators in Arizona and in congress. We have collaborated with like-minded organizations to advocate for issues of crucial importance to Arizona and the nation.
