ACLU
TELL ARIZONA LAWMAKERS:
ABORTION IS A HUMAN RIGHT

TAKE ACTION NOW

Arizona lawmakers are trying to limit and restrict access to abortion care. In a particularly extreme bill, HB 2650, prosecutors would be allowed to incarcerate and seek the death penalty people for having an abortion, as well as the doctors who perform this essential care. We must take a stand and ensure that abortion remain legal and accessible for all. 

Additionally, HB 2404 would allocate millions of taxpayer dollars to an organization that is notorious for tracking pregnant people to steer them away from abortion providers. Let’s be clear: the decision to have an abortion should only be between a person and their medical provider. Politicians have no place in those important and personal decisions. 

Contact Arizona lawmakers and urge them to reject this type of legislation and protect abortion care.

DEMAND YOUR REPRESENTATIVES BUILD ON BIDEN’S RESCUE PLAN TO PASS BOLD RELIEF

In just a few days, the House will be voting on the latest COVID-19 relief package. Additional relief is long overdue, and with some protections from the CARES Act expiring in March, we don’t have any time to waste. The Biden administration’s American Rescue Plan is a strong start, and now we have to ensure Congress builds on the plan with key progressive improvements to expand relief measures and create a truly inclusive, transformative response.

The first thing you can do right now to support these efforts is to call your representative to demand they support a bold rescue plan, include our key progressive improvements, and defend the bill once it heads to the Senate!

The Nuclear Resister – by Marion Pack
A major win in the work to create a nuclear-free world has been achieved.  In October, 2020, the 50th country ratified the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons (TPNW).  On January 22, 2021, the formal ceremony bringing the treaty into full force took place at the United Nations in New York City.

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.
