National Indivisible on What’s Next

What happened in the midterms, and where we go from here?

Indivisible believes Democrats outperformed expectations – and history – because they ran on a platform of accomplishments and because we made the midterms a referendum on MAGA extremism.

Going forward, Indivisible urges activists to help re-elect Senator Warnock and to pressure our members of Congress to ACT during the final weeks of this session, while Democrats still control both houses.

Ezra Levin, co-executive director of Indivisible, said, “If we play our cards right, we can win back the Democratic majority in the House in 2024” – and more. So let’s stay strong and keep working.

TO DO:

1. Learn and act NOW in this final session in Congress. For information & easy actions to take, see this Indivisible guide: 2022 Final Legislative Session

2. Attend Indivisible’s national activist call on Thurs., Dec 8th, 7:00 pm Central Time. You’ll get an intro to national Indivisible’s news guide! Register here.

Learn: CCPSA & Police District Councils

The Triibe writes: “In the 2023 municipal elections, three candidates will be elected to councils in each of the city’s 22 police districts. Along with the citywide Community Commission for Public Safety and Accountability (CCPSA), the councils are the result of decades of work by organizers for community oversight of the police.

“District Councils are tasked with improving policing and public safety, getting community input on policing, expanding restorative justice programs, holding monthly public meetings, and nominating members of the CCPSA.”
 

Read more about the CCPSA and candidates running for the District Council in The Triibe’s article: See who’s running for the newly-created police District Councils in Chicago’s 2023 election

Note: The list of candidates may not yet be complete in each police district; filing petitions are still being submitted.
