We Have a New Website! Plus, More Actions
Good morning, Activists!
If you’re more worried than ever about what’s happening, we get it. It seems there is no limit to how low this administration can go. Or frankly for how incompetent they can be.
So let’s get to work to replace them! We have a lot of work you can do and have some fun in the process. Scroll to the bottom for our upcoming postcard events. We’ll have some new voter registration drives coming up very soon too.
BUT FIRST – We at Indivisible Philadelphia HQ are proud to tell you that we have launched a new website! Go visit it – www.indivisiblephiladelphia.com We hope you like it! We’ll be posting a lot of information there for you. More on all that later.
Katie, Monserrate, and Hanna worked their tails off to make our website easy to navigate and just plain beautiful, so we all owe them a big “Thank You!” Your generous support has made this possible and we thank you for being in this together. Because why? Because together we can do anything – including flipping – oh let’s say maybe – the White House and Senate?!?
CALL TO ACTION
Two Calls To Action for the rest of this week. You can pick one for today and one for tomorrow or Friday.
Sen. Toomey – Phila office 215-241-1090; D.C. office 202-224-4254; email link Sen. Casey – Phila office 215-405-9660; D.C. office 202-224-6324; email link Rep. Evans – D.C. office 202-225-4001; Phila. office (215) 276-0340; email link Rep. Boyle – D.C. office (202) 225-6111; Phila office (215) 335-3355; email link
1. No War With Iran – Call all of your Members of Congress and tell them to state clearly and without equivocation that they DO NOT want a war with Iran. Things might seem to be quieting down on the Iran front right now, but we can’t count on Trump do ever do the right thing. So make it clear to our Members of Congress that you do not want a war. If things heat up again Congress is perhaps our only hope of stopping a war with Iran.
2. Impeachment – No Sham Trial – Call our Senators and tell them you do not want a sham trial.
For Casey, demand that he speak out loudly and firmly about the need for a fair and open impeachment trial in the Senate.
For Toomey, remind him of the oath he took to support and defend the Constitution and demand he supports a fair and open trial in the Senate to fully hear the evidence and hold Trump accountable for his actions. If he doesn’t he’ll become an accomplice in Trump’s coverup.
This isn’t over until the votes are cast -- your voice could be the one to tip the scales.
UPCOMING RALLIES AND MARCHES
Women’s March + Voter Registration
Join up with Indivisible Philadelphia at the 4th Women’s March in Philadelphia on Saturday, January 18th. We’ll be marching AND we’ll be registering voters. So if you want to just march, that’s great and you can let us know here and we’ll give you our meetup location. If you want to do some voter registration for part of the march, sign up here to take a shift. We’ll send you the meetup and shift details after you sign up.
When: Saturday, January 18th, 10:00 am–1:00 pm Where: March starts at Logan Circle – We’ll meet up near to Logan Circle and we’ll give you the exact location soon.
People for Puerto Rico Rally – Release The $18B In Aid For Puerto Rico Congress has appropriated $18 billion in aid for Puerto Rico to upgrade its infrastructure, including the electrical grids, and rebuilding homes, businesses and bridges in a stronger manner. Without citing a valid reason, HUD has delayed the release of this critical aid. Puerto Rico deserves better. On January 15, allies in cities across the country are protesting outside of HUD offices demanding the release of this aid, and to say anything less is unacceptable.
When: January 15th, 4:00–6:00 pm Where: HUD Office, 100 Penn Square East (6 So. Juniper St), Philadelphia, 19107 More info here on Facebook
No War With Iran
There is a rally planned for tomorrow to say No War With Iran. Where: Dilworth Plaza When: Tomorrow, 5:00 pm Here are the details
You know that we write postcards to a variety of voters, such as voters in Florida to remind them to sign up to Vote By Mail, to voters for special elections, or to voters in North Carolina to remind them to check their voter registration status. The data show that writing cards is a very effective way to get people to vote. All you do is come with your writing hand and good humor. And bring a friend!
If you sign up and then find you can’t make it, please email us and let us know. We depend on having the right count! If you can, bring $5.00 to help defray the cost of postcards.
