Yeah, we’re exhausted too. Take some time to de-stress this holiday.
However, when you’re ready to pick up your phone, or turn on your computer, here are some quick and effective actions you can take!
Keep ’em in DC until they get their work done! #1 on the list – Raise or eliminate the debt ceiling!
Americans have short memories – most have probably forgotten the hellish bills the last GOP House kept passing. But if our Democratic legislators don’t use their power to raise or eliminate the debt ceiling while they still can, the GOP will put safety net programs, like Social Security and Medicare, on the chopping block. Because they can.
(We’ve also added a note to send Biden to use his influence to get this done.)
Tell Congress – Raise, don’t cut, corporate taxes during the lame-duck session!
There is never enough profit for America’s oligarchs. Thanks to their greed and that of their pet GOP legislators, income inequality has surpassed that of the Gilded Age before the Great Depression, while the lives of the rest of us grow more unstable, with basics like food, energy and healthcare increasingly unaffordable.
Now they want more tax cuts, reducing their fair share of contributions to our county’s infrastructure and the systems and programs that the rest of us depend on. Tell your legislators that “enough is enough!” and prevent more tax cuts for America’s price-gougers.

PHONE BANKS, TEXT BANKS, POSTCARDS
UPDATE: This is now a “BALLOT CURING/WARNOCK CAMPAIGN” event list!
Pick a time and place and help return someone’s right to have their vote counted!
We who work at Swap Meet Justice, our citizenship and social justice fair, know how long and hard people work for the right to speak out in our elections as full American citizens.
What message does it send to every American, brand-new or native-born, that such an essential right can be cheated away by something as minor as a date or signature missing?
WARNOCK vs. WALKER contest continues! Get involved!
The POSTCARD BRIGADE has already sent out over 7000 cards for Warnock and is getting ready for more. Studies have shown that receiving a colorful postcard with a short punchy message is the most effective way to persuade a voter to get to the polls.
One of Indivisible Ventura’s members is working with Postcards to Swing States (PSS) to coordinate GOTV postcarding focused on Senate races in swing states. PSS identifies the campaigns, writes the message, and provides the voter names and addresses.
If you want to participate, please send an email to her at email@example.com.
Provide this information!
- How many cards do you want, in multiples of 25? (25 minimum, 50, 75, 100, etc…)
- Can you provide your own stamps or do you need assistance?
- Can you collect them at her address in Ventura or will she need to snail-mail them to you
Resist every damn day! – Debby Millais, Postcard Wrangler

INFORMATION TO SHARE
Please DONATE to the cause!
Indivisible Ventura is completely volunteer run and your donation will support the direct costs of organizing in Ventura — things like expenses for Swap Meet Justice, posters, art supplies, stamps, transportation, and more! Although we’ve defeated Trump and taken back the Senate, we have to act urgently to save our democracy and enact other desperately needed reforms. Getting it done depends on all of us. Let’s stand together, indivisible. Indivisible Ventura is one of 6,000 grassroots Indivisible groups across the country. Together, we will win. (https://secure.actblue.com/donate/ven383907253)
