It’s Tuesday, and we’re working on several actions for today and tomorrow.
This evening, CA Youth Versus Big Oil will be hosting their “Youth Virtual Rally” from 7-8pm, in solidarity with frontlines allies calling on Governor Newsom to protect people, not polluters. Next week marks exactly 1 year since Newsom’s promise to introduce new health and safety rules to protect communities from oil drilling in their neighborhoods.One year later, all we’ve seen are inaction and delay. #InactionIsInjustice! Millions of Californians, primarily people of color, still live dangerously close to oil drilling.Please join us and spread the word. REGISTER HERE: (https://linktr.ee/CAYouthVsBigOil)

Tell Tim Cook to stop offering the Parler app.: Infowars, whose podcasts were banned by Apple, is now a regular on Parler, a barely-moderated app that Apple offers, along with the usual suspects of the far-right. The platform’s popularity is increasing exponentially as Twitter and Facebook have gotten more serious about moderating hateful and false posts. It didn’t sit well with us that the maker of our beloved Ipads is enabling political extremism, even one step removed. So we wrote Tim Cook an email and you can too.
Tell Trump’s lawyers they should be ashamed of themselves: After you’ve given Tim Cook of Apple a piece of your mind, save a bit to write to the lawyers behind these nuisance election lawsuits. https://indivisibleventura.org/…/tues-11-10-jones-day…/Join other resistance workers in a call to our own representatives in Congress to call a hearing with Trump-appointee GSA Administrator Emily Murphy. Biden needs to start getting security briefings now, especially since Trump is mowing a line through military and intelligence personnel who don’t play nice with him.

Canned Food Drive: BLM-VC is running a canned food drive until mid-December. Help isn’t coming from our soon-to-be-ex-president and the miscreants in our Senate, and people are in need.
Tomorrow, we’re going to be talking to our legislators about what’s to be done about Senator Lindsey Graham and his illegal overtures to Georgia’s Secretary of State to dump legal votes.
Check out upcoming events here and keep your resistance calendar updated. Sometimes we’re late getting this notice out, so get ahead of us here. https://indivisibleventura.org/events-having-tomorrow/
