Folds attended this town hall panel discussion to consider actions and legislation to expand and ensure democracy for all. Panelists included Charles Douglas, III with Common Purpose, Cindy Black with Fix Democracy First, and our own Lisa Ornstein with Olympia Indivisible.
We had until August to pass the For the People Act in order to protect our elections. Senators must put our democracy first and end the Jim Crow filibuster. Let's get every Washington Indivisible group to join groups nationwide in taking action every Friday. Details on emailing, calling and digital media for #FilibusterFriday are HERE.
During the Indivisible Town Hall with Maria Cantwell, the Senator moved a smidge from "I support a talking filibuster" to maybe she would consider a democracy carve out if it could save voting rights in states like Georgia. She needs to do better than that. Let's keep the pressure up by participating in #FilibusterFriday this and every Friday and get your members involved! Details HERE.
Call-A-Palooza lasted 5 days — you can sign up for a single day & time, or be a superhero and call on 2 or more days.
Here's how it worked: You sign up to make 2 telephone calls within your 30 minute time window (one each to Senator Murray & Senator Cantwell's Washington D.C. office.) Your total time commitment was 5-10 minutes each day.
We sent you everything you needed by email the night before your calls, and by text message on the day of your calls. (That's why we asked for a cell phone number.) If you had signed up for more than one day, you looked for an email and text message from us for each of those days.
Extra karma points for doubling your effort by getting at least one friend to sign up as well.
