Pass this
crucial legislation during

First of all, thanks to all of you who have been working on our Blue Wave projects or helped with donations.  Our work is not over!  

With the likely control of the House going to the Republicans and the implied chaos it will bring, Indivisible Hawaii believes it is imperative that Congress takes action during the lame-duck session. 

Please call our Members of Congress and ask them to
take action to ensure that these bills pass –
no matter what it takes –  before December 31, 2022.
See contact info at bottom of this email.

Here’s a summarized list of items we want passed in the lame duck session.

  1. Defuse a potential Republican induced debt-ceiling crisis by raising the debt limit beyond what is necessary for foreseeable future.
  2. Pass revisions to the Electoral Count Act to reduce the risk of a stolen election in 2024.
  3. Prevent more immigration chaos by protecting DACA recipients and ensuring adequate funding for the asylum system.
  4. Prevent defunding of Ukraine aid by pro-Putin Republicans with a long term aid appropriation for Ukraine.
  5. Protect the investigations into Trump, prevent Republicans from defunding the FBI and Department of Justice by securing long-term funding for the DOJ.
  6. Pass the government funding package.
  7. Continue to confirm judges.
  8. Pass the  Marriage  Equality Act
