February Monthly Meeting Recap
On Wednesday, February 19, nearly 90 activists met at the Philadelphia Ethical Society to help shape Indivisible Philadelphia's strategy for 2020, and to hear from an exciting roster of speakers!
Dr. Kevin Arceneaux from Temple University shared the best strategies to get out votes and why these strategies work. His research focuses on how people make political decisions, and he has published articles on the topic of the influence of partisan campaigns on voting behavior. You can see his presentation here.
Andrea Koplove from Turn PA Blue spoke about the successes we’ve achieved in the past two years and our big plans for 2020.
Finally, we heard from three candidates for state House seats in Bucks County – Marlene Katz (HD 29), Gary Spillane (HD 144), and Ann Marie Mitchell (HD 178), who told us just how important it is to get involved in local races, and the best ways for volunteers to support progressive candidates this fall.
We also distributed a survey to figure out what volunteer opportunities and events our members are most interested in for the coming year.
