Happy Tuesday, Activists!
We hope you're having a good week so far. Today we have more events to register voters, to learn more about taking action, how to communicate better, and to get rid of the anti-democratic filibuster rule in the US Senate. Plus actions to help save the Democratic majority in the PA House. Whew! I'm tired just writing it all!
ONE MORE TRY -- RECORDINGS FROM THE LAST TWO MEETINGS
Unfortunately a couple of the links in last week's newsletter seemed not to work well. So here are the two recordings from our recent meetings in case you didn't make it to them.
1. Ezra Levin telling us about indivisible's 2024 plans -- here is the easy link to the video.
2. The Anand Giridharadas interview by Ezra. Here is the link to that video.
Plus, you can also attend this upcoming Indivisible national meeting for more updates from Indivisible. Here is the link.

NEW! MEETING WITH SENATOR CASEY
-- WE'RE WORKING ON THE SCHEDULING
Senator Casey's office has told us he'd like to speak on zoom to the PA Indivisible Statewide group during the last week of February. We don't have the date yet, so be on the lookout for the announcement so you can join. We'll ask you to submit your questions beforehand too.
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: Monday, February 21 at 8:00 pm ET
SAVE THE DEMOCRATIC MAJORITY IN THE PA HOUSE
CANVASSING AND PHONE BANKING
Here's your reminder that the House Democratic majority hangs in the balance.
A super important special election in Bucks County is on February 13. Right now there is an even split in the PA House due to a resignation. This election is to fill the vacant seat, in the 140th district So it's imperative we win this race to protect our one-seat majority.
You can help! If you're in Bucks County or know a voter who is, check out these important dates for the Special Election and spread the word so voters can make their voices heard!
TODAY: Last day to request a mail-in ballot
February 13, Election Day; and all mail ballots must be received by the Bucks County elections office by 8:00 pm
You can also canvass and/or phone bank to support the Democratic candidate, Jim Prokopiak. See the schedules below. Remember, these are all calls and door-knocks to friendly households. This is not a persuasion campaign, just an effort to remind folks that this Special Election is happening.
If you can't canvass or phone bank, you can always donate to his campaign. A little goes a long way in these races!
Here are your outreach opportunities - take your pick!
2/10 GOTV Canvass

We can't wait to work with you all again on another postcard project!
