The last week of August will mark 500 days since Greg Walden has had a town hall anywhere in Oregon Congressional District 2. A lot of Indivisibles have gotten tired of his little secret meetings and have decided to do something about it.
If he won’t bring a town hall to us, we’ve decided to take one to him.
On the weekend of Aug. 24-26, please join us for what we hope is the first and last cross-district “Where’s Walden?” caravan.

TAKE A STAND AGAINST KAVANAUGH
BOYCOTT THE VOTE
Confirmation hearings on Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court will begin on September 4, even though the documents relating to his work for the Bush II administration won’t be released by then, if ever. The battle over access to Kavanaugh’s complete record is no mere procedural scuffle. These documents “are critical to understanding his knowledge of and involvement with torture, warrantless wiretapping and the use of (presidential) signing statements, …” said Sen. Feinstein. They could also reveal whether Kavanaugh lied in 2006 when he testified he played no role in Bush’s terrorism detainee policies.
Republicans are racing to confirm Kavanaugh by October 1 without this critical information, stonewalling Democrats’ demands for the documents:
- The National Archives can’t produce the documents for months and won’t provide documents without Senator Grassley’s request
- Documents are being cherry-picked by Kavanaugh’s former deputy, a clear conflict of interest
- Democrats have had to request documents through the Freedom of Information Act
Americans demand to know the whole truth about Kavanaugh. Democrats should not participate in Republicans’ deeply compromised process to confirm this extreme nominee to a lifetime appointment. They should . . .
Boycott the Hearing and the Vote!
**ACTION ONE: CALL OUR SENATORS**
“My name is [–] and I’m a constituent and voter from [city], Oregon [zip code]. I am calling to thank the Senator for his continued opposition to the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh. The GOP steamroller must be stopped until Kavanaugh’s complete record is made available. Please tell the Senator (i) to urge his Democratic colleagues on the Judiciary Committee to boycott the Kavanaugh hearings, (ii) to boycott any floor vote on Kavanaugh’s nomination, and (iii) withhold unanimous consent on Senate business unless all documents are produced. Thank you.”

**ACTION TWO: WORK TO FLIP THE SENATE IN THE MIDTERMS**
Help take back the Senate by adopting a vulnerable blue senator in a red state. Bring to their attention “Red State Democrats Have No Good Reason to Vote for Brett Kavanaugh”. Do something every month to help their election.
The 2018 elections will be the most important of our lives!
**ACTION THREE: KEEP WORKING TOWARD THE MIDTERMS!**
To save voting rights, we need to:
- Make sure you and everyone you know is registered to vote: iwillvote.com
- Do what you can to support Jamie McLeod-Skinner as she continues with her campaign to replace Walden in Oregon District 2’s seat in the U.S. House of Representatives! https://jamiefororegon.com/
