This Week’s Indivisible Actions
This Week’s To-Do List
Your weekly Indivisible to-dos (tax scam, tax scam, tax scam):
- Make. a. phone call. NOW. Senate Republicans have combined their Tax Scam with zombie TrumpCare and they need to hear from you. We’ve set up a toll-free number to make it even easier to make a call to stop the scam: 1-855-980-2350. We have Democratic call scripts and Republican call scripts to help guide conversations!
- Schedule a visit to your Senators’ in-district offices ASAP. It’s almost Thanksgiving, but many offices will be open today, tomorrow, and part of the day on Wednesday. We need to show up and we need to be L-O-U-D. Use our organizing toolkit to plan a visit and then register your event here.
Some of your members of Congress will also be making appearances at town halls this week. Make a plan to show up and ask the hard questions.
BONUS: Mark your calendars for next Monday, November 27. Indivisible Group Leaders are scheduling actions at Senators’ offices across the country. We’ll send you an email this weekend with events in your area! You can also search now to see if there’s already an event scheduled in your area.
- Our Co-Executive Director Ezra Levin will be on Facebook LiveTONIGHT! Ezra and our policy team will talk about how we kill the #TrumpTaxScam, what we have planned for the day of action, and answer your questions live, on-air. Like us on Facebook now and you’ll get notified when we go live!
- Call fellow progressives in key #TrumpTaxScam target states and patch them through to their Senators. We’re bringing back a super effective peer-to-peer calling tool from the TrumpCare fight so you can take action to stop this bill by reaching out to progressive constituents in Alaska, Arizona, and West Virginia. Get started now.
No matter which way Trump’s agenda goes on healthcare, we know he will try to score political points with his base by attacking immigrants. That’s why we’ve partnered with the National Immigration Law Center (NILC) and United We Dream to launch standup.indivisibleguide.com—a hub for resources to fight Trump’s multipronged attack on immigrant communities and to support our immigrant neighbors. Our key asks this week: Tell your MoCs to:
- Oppose mass deportation. Oppose any budget that finances Trump’s mass deportation agenda using our explainer.
- Co-sponsor the DREAM Act (S.1615). Tell your senators to co-sponsor the bipartisan DREAM Act using our new resource.
Immigration must-read: NILC lays out all the ways Trump’s administration is threatening immigrants in a new post on the IndivisiBlog.
Save consumer protections.
There’s an agency in Washington swimming against the Trump tide, and it needs your help: the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) just restored your ability take collective legal action against big corporate players like Wells Fargo when they break the law. But Trump’s friends in the House are voting to repeal this important new rule on Tuesday. Tell your representative to leave the “Arbitration rule” in place and let the CFPB protect your rights without interference.
Learn how to write Letters to the Editor that really get your MoCs’ attention.
Letters to the editor might not seem like the flashiest way to get your member of Congress’s attention. But there’s something about a sharp letter to the editor in a hometown paper that can really get under the skin of the most powerful lawmaker. Use our new resource to learn why they matter and how to write one that gets attention.
New Indivisible Resources
We’ve been adding a ton of new resources and tools this week to help you keep standing indivisible in new and creative ways, and we want to make sure you don’t miss any of it! Here’s all of our latest materials in one place:
- Introducing the IndivisiBlog:Indivisible now has a blog, featuring in-depth analysis from the Indivisible team, groups, and allies. In case you missed it, in the first post, Indivisible’s Executive Director Ezra Levin reflects on how the Indivisible movement got started and everything you’ve accomplished so far. Then, in the newest post, Levin explores the development of the Indivisible organization and what we’re doing to support the broader movement—go check it out.
- Keep holding the House accountable with The Payback Project. Indivisible recently joined with MoveOn, Town Hall Project, and Women’s March to create The Payback Project to showcase your amazing work across the country holding accountable the 217 representatives who voted for TrumpCare. Register your eventstargeting these 217 MoCs; use the toolkit to plan a die-in in your district; and add your pictures, videos, and stories from Twitter and Facebook to the Accountability Wall.
- Adopt-a-District: After their disastrous vote for TrumpCare, some MoCs seem to be set on hiding from their constituents. If you’re not getting the answers you need from your MoC, check out our new Adopt-a-District Guide. You can connect with a neighboring district whose MoC is willing to step in and help out—or, if your MoC voted no, you can connect them to a nearby district that isn’t being heard by their own representative. This strategy is already catching on around the country—check out how your group can make an adopted town hall happen near you: Adopt-a-District Guide.
