OUR NEXT MEETING – KICK OFF 2022 WITH US! Join us in early March when we kick off our plans for this year. This year's elections are critical as we work our hearts out to elect the Democratic candidates for the U.S. Senate and PA Governor seats in November. The alternatives are just plain unacceptable, and we’ll be doing everything we can to elect the candidates who will sustain our democracy. We’re holding this meeting twice so you can pick which day and time work for you. As usual, it will be on Zoom. When: Thursday, March 3, at 7:30 pm Sign up here. When: Friday, March 4, at 1:00 pm Sign up here.
MERCHANDISE! Check out our snappy Indivisible Philadelphia merch! You can see all of our beautiful items on our website! Here’s how it works: 1. View the selections and pick out what you would like to order. 2. Make a donation for the amount (or more!) listed for each item. 3. Use the email link in the item description and tell us you made your donation. 4. Sit back and we’ll ship the item to you. You’ll enjoy it, and know you donated to a worthy cause!
REDISTRICTING UPDATE -- ON TO COURT! Just a quick catch-up on the redistricting process for our Congressional maps. Governor Wolf has vetoed the map the Republicans had sent to him. So now the issue has gone to the PA Supreme Court for their decision on a new map. They are moving expeditiously but it’s unknown if we'll have a map in time to keep the May 17 primary date. Stand by!
POSTCARDS Write to Philly Voters More democracy-saving happening here! We are writing to every voter in Philadelphia who does not usually vote in midterm elections, to secure Democratic victories for the open U.S. Senate and PA Governor seats. Here’s how it works – The handwritten script is short plus you’ll also write the address. We recommend you order enough cards to write over the next month. Then we’ll have updated cards. The packet you receive will include the postcards and the list of addresses. We’ll email you all the instructions and the script. Please order your postcards in multiples of 50. We ask that you donate $7.00 per set of 50 postcards to cover our costs at this link. But don’t let the donation stop you from signing up. On the other hand, if you can, please consider chipping in a little extra to cover the cost for those who cannot. Here’s how to sign up – Email us at this link to tell us how many postcards you want. Purchase your 40-cent postcard stamps online at this link or at your local post office. Donate $7.00 per set of 50 postcards at this link. (Plus an extra $5.00 if we are shipping to you.) Here’s how to receive your postcards – If you are in the Philadelphia area, we will deliver them to you or you can pick them up. If you are outside the Philadelphia area, we can ship them to you. Please add $5.00 to your donation for shipping costs.
