Action 1: Attend a Seattle Indivisible Event
Seattle Indivisible is sponsoring these two exciting events that we hope you can make! They are free but you do need to pre-register:
1) Sunday, May 21 at 3pm in Redmond: Indivisible Mosque Visit and Meet our Muslim Neighbors:
From 3pm to 6pm we will be at Redmond MAPS (Muslim Association of Puget Sound) touring the Mosque, listening to a presentation and Q&A about Islam, observing a prayer service and sharing a meal. All ages are welcome.
2) Tuesday, May 30 at 7pm at Town Hall Seattle: Seattle Indivisible Action Fair with special guest speaker Pramila Jayapal!
Come meet organizers and activist groups from around the Puget Sound region and find your best fit to effect change. Leave this event feeling energized and empowered, knowing you now have concrete tools to make a difference.
Action 2: Support Fair Elections
To take back power from Trump and his allies, we must ensure that progressive candidates have a fair shot at winning races where voter suppression and gerrymandered districts tilt the field.
The following organizations are working on ensuring a level playing field for the midterm elections and beyond. Small-dollar donations, volunteering, or even simply subscribing to their emails alerts can go a long way towards helping them succeed:
- The National Democratic Redistricting Committee uses electoral strategies, lawsuits, and ballot initiatives to fight for fair redistricting: https://democraticredistricting.com/
- Let America Vote fights voters suppression through public pressure. It recently ran ads in New Hampshire to support pro-voting rights candidates: https://www.letamericavote.org
- Unrig the Map is fighting to elect Democratic governors in 18 states where the Congressional districts unfairly benefit republicans: http://www.unrigthemap.com
- Flippable focuses on winning state legislative races around the country: https://www.flippable.org/
"Democrats now have a 49-38 lead overall on the generic Congressional ballot, up from 47-41 a month ago. Even more notable though is that among voters who say they're 'very excited' to turn out in the 2018 election, the Democratic lead balloons to 27 points at 61-34." http://www.publicpolicypolling.com/main/2017/05/health-care-puts-house-in-play.html
