Issues

“The great aim of education is not knowledge but action.”

Herbert Spencer

Stay Informed

According to the Indivisible Guide, Members of Congress (MoC) are likeliest to respond to, “Concrete asks that entail a verifiable action — vote for a bill, make a public statement, etc.”

In order to be able to make concrete asks, as an organization, we need to educate ourselves on the issues, and know where we stand before we can make specific asks of our elected officials. And we need to know where our MoC stands on the issue.

Sometimes we’ll be calling to thank our MoC for their position on an issue. Sometimes we will be calling to oppose specific legislation, either way, we need to be informed.

Join an Issue Team (or start one)

Currently we have teams tracking the following issues:

Each team works independently. The teams research and present ACTION ITEMS for the group as a whole. Issue teams can be formed with as few as two people to get the team up and running.

Be mindful of your desire to be involved versus the need for self-care and taking a break from the 24 hour news cycle.

Don’t over commit. Keep the goal in mind. Don’t be distracted by Russia-Gate while bills are being signed under our noses. Burnout is a real issue and we are running a marathon all the way to November 6, 2018.
