Join us for Powering Progress, phone banks, voter registration and more!
Voter Registration at Modesto Community College
Want to fight for Women’s rights, voting rights, and end book bans? Registering voters is the #1 most effective way to do all these things! So join us by signing up on Mobilize and we’ll get volunteer rides organized to register voters at the Modesto Community College on August 29 + 30 … sign up now for one or both days!
No experience necessary. We’ll start with a 15-minute training at the staging site and deploy on the campus. We’ll have clipboards, forms, and pens. Just bring your smartphone or tablet if you have one, a mask, a little water, sunscreen, and some comfortable shoes.
NOTE: If possible, wear a liberal-looking t-shirt, hat, or pin! It really helps. Bring a friend! Can’t wait to see you there!
West Sacramento Pints & Progress- thanks to all who joined!
We gathered at Bike Dog Brewing in West Sacramento and met up with both old hands and new to Indivisibles from the eastern end of Yolo County. Along with some folks from Indivisible Sacramento and the River City (aka West Sac) Dems, we shared pizza, points and stories and even signed up a few folks for our first CA-13 Voter Registration trip in late August (see above). We were joined by Chris Cabaldon, ex-mayor of West Sacramento and candidate to replace Bill Dodd in the CA Senate. A great reminder that we’re going to have some contested races closer to home next year. Thanks to all who attended and we’ll be following up on how you can continue to work with us.
CA-13 & CA-22 Phone Banks
BAC (Bay Area Coalition), which is composed of some 27+ progressive groups including Indivisible Yolo, is already doing weekly phone banks reaching out voters to identify issues in order to mount more effective campaigns in CA 13 and CA 22 in 2024. Both districts are winnable; and getting folks involved now is exactly what’s needed to win them back.
Simply put, the more often we engage with the same set of voters the more in-tune we become with the nuances of a specific district. Getting involved in a district now by gathering voter feedback on their top issues gives one keener insight and, thus, more confidence in their future voter outreach, either in person or by phone. The phone banks, organized by BAC and CADEM are scheduled for Wednesdays from 2:30-4:30 and you can sign up via Mobilize here.
Powering Progress: Celebrate Freedom, Family and Our Future
Join us at the Davis Farmers Market on Wednesday August 16. We’ll be there to celebrate the one year anniversary of the passage of the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA). Along with the most sweeping climate bill in history forecasted to create some 9 millions jobs over the next 10 years, there’s also savings to help homeowners make their homes more energy efficient, lower prescription drug prices, and reduced health care premiums for people who buy insurance on their own. All while helping to build a more fair and just country where all workers, families and communities have what they need to thrive and where the ultra wealthy and big corporations are held accountable.
We’ll be sharing our successes with our fellow Yolo County residents at the Farmer’s Market from 4-8 PM. We’re looking for a few volunteers to help us staff the table in 60 minute shifts.Please sign up here: https://www.mobilize.us/indivisibleyolo/event/573618/
You can also attend the virtual national Indivisible Powering Progress training “Race Class Narrative Intro: Powering Progress for our Families, Freedoms and Futures Part 1” August 2 @ 5pm.
