Great Meetings Coming Up!

Happy Friday, Activists! 

 

We hope you've been having a good week.  This one is jam-packed with good information for you.  Today you can sign up for a cool event to learn more about taking action and how to get rid of the anti-democratic filibuster rule in the US Senate.  AND we have a meeting with an expert on getting out the vote next week!  Sign up for those below. 

 

AND help students learn about voting!

 

But first, here are two items from our Kickoff Meeting last week.  

1).  We sent out a survey of what you all would like to volunteer for.  We have lots of options!!  So sign up and we'll contact you. Fill out the survey at this link. 

 

2).  And we recorded last week's 2024 Kickoff Meeting.  Watch the video at this link. 


 

YOU CAN HELP PHILLY STUDENTS LEARN ABOUT VOTING!

 

Many of you have told us you're concerned about low turnout in the youth vote, wondering what we can do about it.  Here's something you can do!

 

A Commentary in last Friday's Philadelphia Inquirer noted that there are ways we all can help the School District educate students about voting.  

The writers tell us that first, "the Board of Education needs to pass a new civic and voter education policy that ensures students are ready for every election." Residents of Philadelphia can help by asking the board to "pass a policy with the teeth to require the district to support civic education and to implement this programming."  Use this link to contact the Board of Education.

 

At the same time, we can ask our PA lawmakers to support more education funding in the budget.  The “Improving Youth Voting and Civic Engagement” bills, HB 1826 and HB 1827, will allow students to preregister to vote at 16, and will provide teachers with the training and resources to improve how they teach civic education.  Find your State House member's contact info at this link and ask them to pass these bills.


 

NEW! MEETING WITH AN EXPERT ON GETTING OUT THE VOTE

DR. DAVID NICKERSON NEXT TUESDAY!

 

Next Tuesday our Indivisible Statewide group has a meeting that's so timely.  We'll hear from Dr. David Nickerson from Temple University (he's on temporary leave at the moment to consult).  He devotes his research and consulting to helping campaigns get out the vote with the most effective and efficient methods. He spoke at one of our meetings way back in 2017 and everyone loved it!  So join us for a super interesting and super timely and informative meeting.

When:  NEXT TUESDAY, February 27th at 7:00 PM

Where:  Zoom


 

NEXT MONDAY!  A CONVERSATION WITH SEN. JEFF MERKLEY

HOW TO GET RID OF THE FILIBUSTER!

 

The filibuster has been weaponized by MAGA Republicans to become one of their strongest weapons in preventing Congress from passing meaningful legislation. It’s long time for the filibuster to go. But what is the smartest, cleanest path to preventing that obstructionism?

 

 

Bonus: The first 50 people to submit a question for the conversation will receive a free copy of Merkley’s book Filibustered!


 

ANOTHER INDIVISIBLE "PERSUASION TO POWER" EVENT!

 

Following up on the Anand Giridharadas The Persuaders event, Indivisible's new Powering Progress campaign is bringing you the educational tools you need to become the most effective communicator you can be.

 

At this event, you’ll hear from noted activist, intellectual, and professor Loretta Ross about how we must assess and adjust our communication approaches based on the person we’re talking to and how closely they already align with our goals.

 

When (NEW DATE):  Monday, March 20 at 8:00 pm ET

Where:  Zoom
