Seven Days Until the House Turns BLUE!
We’re just SEVEN DAYS away from the swearing in of the new, Democratically-controlled House we all worked so hard to elect. Even though Greg Walden held onto his seat, flipping the house busted him out of his powerful committee leadership role.
We Call That . . . Progress!
On January 3rd, Indivisibles all over the country will be showing up at district offices or holding rallies in their communities to tell their Members of Congress (MoCs) that we’re not slowing down! We’re ready to fight for progressive policies, support progressive champions, and hold both Republicans and Democrats accountable when they don’t fight for their constituents.
ORD2 Indivisible is kicking off the new year with a NOON RALLY at Vogel Plaza in Medford on Thursday, January 3rd.
There is so much going on right now that we have not settled on the rally’s theme. Stay tuned and watch this space for rally details in the next few days.
Here are two other things you can do to get 2019 off to a good activist start:
- Read the #TrumpShutdown resource and demand a clean, year-long continuing resolution. Republicans are grasping onto their last bit of power in the House but, in seven days, that changes. This is #OurHouse, and in our house, we want a clean CR with no additional funding for the border wall, detention beds, and enforcement agents.
- Read up on H.R. 1 and get your members of Congress on the record. We expect the first major legislative push in the Democratically-controlled House to be a democracy reform effort called H.R. 1. Learn everything you need to know about H.R. 1 and how to ask Greg Walden to support these reforms. Even if he doesn’t step back from enabling the #TrumpTrainwreck, it’s important that he understands what WE WANT!
