INDIVISIBLE NATIONAL

It’s Recovery Recess and Indivisibles across the country are pressuring their members of Congress who’re home in their district offices for the week — and while the Hill may be quiet this week, next week will be full of action! Not only will the House be working hard on Biden’s Build Back Better plan (and they’ll have lots of feedback from constituents like you who want to see the plan on par with THRIVE), but it’s also a BIG week for democracy! 

Starting on Wednesday, April 14, the House will be marking up the D.C. statehood bill, bringing it one step closer to the House floor for a vote. On Thursday, in recognition of Tax Day, Indivisible groups will be uplifting the importance of D.C. statehood and how residents of D.C. pay taxes yet have no representation in Congress. And Friday is D.C. Emancipation Day, which celebrates the freeing of thousands of slaves in the district a full eight months before the Emancipation Proclamation freed slaves in the South. If you’d like to participate in the Democracy Days of Action with our partners, share the resources below with everyone you know. 


Two Steps Forward, One Step Backwards
U.K. Announces Move to Increase its Nuclear Warheads

On the heels of the exciting announcement of the ratification of the Treaty on the Abolition of Nuclear Weapons in January, in mid-March Great Britain announce its plan to increase its nuclear weapons stockpile. This announcement flies in the face of Britain earlier pledges on nuclear disarmament.

In January of 2017, now president Biden said, “As a nation, I believe we should keep pursuing peace and security for a world without nuclear weapons, because that is the only surety we have against the nightmare scenario from becoming a reality. If we want a world without nuclear weapons, the US must take initiative and lead the world.”

Now is the time to hold him to his pledge!
The next issue of Nuclear Resister will be about one leg of the US nuclear strategic triad, intercontinental ballistic weapons and why we would be more secure without them.   Read the entire column HERE.

Thanks to Sen. Tyler Pace, LD25 – tpace@azleg.gov
Now the call to action is to send him a thank you.

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.
