Read Indivisible.org’s statement calling for a ceasefire in Israel/Palestine and then call your Member of CongressPlease read the above statement from Indivisible.org calling for a ceasefire and the letter from Members of Congress laying out crucial steps to protect civilians, and then please call your Member of Congress. (Our Members of Congress did not sign the letter.)
Example script (your own words are best!):I am appalled and angry about Hamas’s attacks on Israel. I also do not support the targeting of civilians and commission of war crimes in response. I’m asking [Sen. Padilla/Sen. Butler/Rep. Thompson/Rep. Matsui] to please sign the letter by Reps. Schakowsky, Pocan, Jayapal, and McGovern urging the protection of innocent civilian lives, and to call for a ceasefire to save lives in Gaza, so hostages can be safely released, to establish a humanitarian corridor so that aid can get into Gaza, and to avert regional escalation.

Call out for volunteers for the Recall MacDonald campaign in Woodland!
Indivisible Yolo members, we have a call to action from the Recall MacDonald campaign!
“Come help us collect signatures to recall the anti-trans, anti ethnic studies, WJUSD school board member Emily MacDonald who is backed by YOLO GOP and Moms 4 Liberty. We now have less than two weeks to collect signatures and every single volunteer hour is critical to not only meet the required number of signatures to file but also to get some extra signatures so we can file knowing that we have a cushion in case some signatures get tossed out by the office of elections for any reason. We currently have around 900 signatures and our goal is to have 1,300 or more in the next two weeks. Please don’t think that others will step up to do this, we need YOU to help.
No experience is needed as you will be thoroughly trained before you start canvassing. We also encourage canvassing in pairs so bring a friend or make a new friend when we partner you with another canvasser. We canvass EVERY SINGLE DAY. Sign up at recallmacdonald.com/signup.
Go to recallmacdonald.com to learn more about WHY we are recalling this board member.

Online phonebanks for Virginia- Sundays and Mondays
Sister District Yolo is running online phonebanks on Sundays from 2-4 pm PST and Mondays from 2-4 pm PST to call voters in Virginia. We talk to a real voter using an online script.
Virginia is the last state in the South with access to abortion. Voting rights, gun safety, climate solutions, and LGBTQ rights are also on the line.
Training is always available for first-timers or volunteers who need a refresher course. Your host will be Rebekka, Kelly, Amy, or Betsy, who will get you up and running quickly.
RSVP to receive Zoom information.
Meet the Candidates- California Grassroots Alliance
The road to the House majority runs through California.
We have the power, right here in California, to take the Speaker’s gavel out of GOP hands by mobilizing grassroots volunteers statewide. We can do the work to sweep six key seats—five flips and one hold—and stop destructive MAGA stunts. Our state can put Congress back on the path to governing.
The MEET THE CANDIDATE interviews are the first events co-hosted by the brand new California Grassroots Alliance, formed to support Indivisible and other grassroots volunteers with focused strategy, effective tools, and fresh intel. Following each lively 45-minute candidate interview, Indivisible Sonoma County’s Tom Benthin will facilitate a wide-ranging participant discussion about the target district, the candidates, and the election outlook for re-taking the House via California victories.
Bring a friend, list your questions, and get ready to activate!
