5 mins read

These last few weeks of December are a critical time for our democracy. We elected Biden as our President. We took the majority in the House and Senate. Yet there’s still so much to do to ensure our democracy survives. In this email, we’re presenting key information about what’s included in the pending legislation and what we can do to help ensure it gets passed. 

But first, let’s take a breath and remember all the great things we, Indivisible Hawaii, have accomplished over the past 5 years. 

Indivisible Hawaii – We Made a Difference!
Indivisible Hawaii is a pro-democracy citizen activist group whose mission is to protect and enhance the institutions of democracy in our country and our state. We formed our  Indivisible chapter in Hawaii shortly after Trump became president.

Freedom to Vote Act

The Freedom to Vote Act is a bold and transformative legislative package that would create national standards to protect our freedom to vote, get big money out of politics, combat partisan election subversion, and guarantee that congressional districts are drawn to give fair representation for all.


Together we can realize a democracy that represents, reflects, and responds to all of us.
