Midterm Election kickoff at Central Park Sun., Aug. 28

Hi Indivisibles,

Are you ready for the Midterm election kickoff this Sunday? Here’s the press release we’re sending out for the event- we hope to see you there!

Press Release – Sister District Yolo/Indivisible Yolo
Restoring abortion rights, instituting gun safety laws and protecting democracy will be front and center Sunday, Aug. 28 from 6-7:30 p.m. when Sister District Yolo and Indivisible Yolo and community partners kickoff midterm election efforts in Davis’ Central Park.

“We can do so much from Yolo County to elect officials in key swing areas here in California and nearby in Nevada and Arizona,” said Steve Murphy of Indivisible Yolo. “Come learn how you can take action, no matter how much time you have.”

Speakers at the rally will include representatives from event partners, including Planned Parenthood Advocates Mar Monte, Yolo County Moms Demand Action, and League of Women Voters Davis area.

Candelaria Vargas of Planned Parenthood Advocates Mar Monte noted that abortion rights will be on the ballot locally and across the country in the midterm elections.

“We support candidates who will protect a person’s right to abortion and all reproductive healthcare,” Vargas said. “Individuals must have autonomy over their own bodies, and we’ll be sharing the importance of registering to vote and getting out the vote this year, including canvassing opportunities for our reproductive and abortion access supporters locally and in Reno.”

Emily Ault, a volunteer from Yolo County Moms Demand Action, will be one of the speakers.

“Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America is a non-partisan organization and we support any candidate who commits to enacting and supporting common sense gun laws,” Ault said. The organization began after the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting and is the largest grassroots volunteer organization in the country focused on gun violence prevention.

Michelle Famula of the League of Women Voters Davis area noted that in 2022 they’ve already seen the need for more voter education regarding mail-in, dropbox, and in-person voting rules and deadlines.

“Our democracy depends on ordinary people who make sure every person’s vote is counted,” she said. “We can sign you up for voter registration and provide ballot education training that will help ensure a safe, fair, and efficient election for all voters.”

Kelly Wilkerson of Sister District Yolo said there will be many opportunities for those coming to the rally to help election efforts.

“We’ll have signups available at the event for those interested in registering voters, writing postcards, texting, canvassing, phone banking or fundraising for progressive candidates, and there will be refreshments,” she said.

Call State Senator Dodd in support of priority state bills:

Sample Call Script:

Hello, my name is [YOUR NAME]. I’m a constituent of Senator Dodd and my zip code is [zip code].

Please vote yes on AB 2632,  the California Mandela Act on Solitary Confinement, to set clear standards and limits on the use of solitary confinement. It’s an inhumane punishment that’s too often abused and used on vulnerable populations. I’d also like to see Senator Dodd support AB 257the FAST recovery act, to set minimum workplace standards for the fast food industry in California. Thank you!


Call Assemblymember Aguiar-Curry in support of SB 1008- the Keep Families Connected Act

Assm. Aguiar-Curry: (530) 757-1034 (Davis) (916) 319-2004 (Sacramento) emailSample Call Script:

Hello, my name is [YOUR NAME]. I’m a constituent of Assemblymember Aguiar-Curry and my zip code is [zip code].

I’m calling to ask Assemblymember Aguiar-Curry to support SB 1008, the Keep Families Connected Act, which will provide incarcerated people with 60 minutes of voice communication a day. Being able to connect with family, friends, and outside resources is important for incarcerated people, and the prison industry should not be profiteering off of families who have incarcerated loved ones. Please support SB 1008. Thank you.
