Annual General Meeting- tonight at 7pm

Hi Indivisibles,

Our Annual General Meeting is online tonight, June 28th, at 7pm. We’ll hold elections for officers and steering committee members, and present our annual financial report. We hope you can make it!

Republicans have now filibustered even debating S.1, the For the People Act. If we don’t see voting rights moving forward out of the Senate, our chances for stopping any of the voter suppression and gerrymandering tactics prior to the midterm will likely be lost. Without S.1, the efforts to hold the Senate and the House next year will be all the more difficult! So as we expected, we’ll need to keep the momentum up for S.1 and insist that the Senate bring it up for a vote. It’s unacceptable to let the filibuster on even debating the bill stand!

So during the Senate recess, we’re joining Deadline for Democracy events to keep the pressure up on our Senators. Save the date for these in-person rallies- you can RSVP and check out details at Hope to see you there!

  • Sacramento: June 29, 10 AM
  • Oakland: July 7, 6 PM 
  • Davis: July 8, 5:30 PM

The carpool link for the Sacramento event is here, if you need a ride or can offer one:

Tell our Senators: We MUST Pass S-1 . Keep S-1 strong

Sample Call Script for Sen. Feinstein:
Hello, my name is [YOUR NAME]. I’m a California voter from [CITY, zip code] and I’m a member of Indivisible Yolo.

I am calling today to ensure that the Senate does not abandon voting rights!   

We must pass S.1 – For the People Act.  Letting the Republicans filibuster even debating the bill is unacceptable.

I’m calling to insist that Senator Feinstein do everything in her power to bring voting rights back to a vote as soon as the brief Senate recess is over. It’s now or never — and never can’t be the answer. We cannot let the filibuster prevent the essential elements of this act from becoming law.

Don’t let a minority of Senators use the filibuster diminish the rights of our most vulnerable voters.  Thank you.

Sample Call Script for Sen. Padilla:
Hello, my name is [YOUR NAME]. I’m a California voter from [CITY, zip code].

I’m calling to thank Senator Padilla for his consistent support for S1- the For the People Act.

I urge the Senator to use his influence to keep the bill strong, don’t let it be stripped of key, very popular provisions, and get it passed in the Senate this month.

The Senate still needs to pass S1 to protect future Federal elections. This is no time to compromise Democracy!! Thank you.
