The Supreme Court Long-Game: Get Out the Vote

Official action for Tuesday, July 3

We are in the middle of a week of action against ICE’s separation and detention of immigrant families. You can find more details at the end of this message. We hope to see you at one or more of these events!

Freedom of choice, affirmative action, marriage equality--we stand to lose a lot if Trump manages to appoint a right-wing judge to the Supreme Court. We’ve been calling our senators to tell them to reject any Trump nominees, and that’s important. But as long as Republicans control the Senate, we’re fighting an uphill battle.

The 2018 midterms are more important than ever, and now Indivisible National has a tool to help you get out the vote in battleground states. If you sign up at the below link, Indivisible will connect you with potential progressive voters in AZ, MS, NV, TN, and TX:
