Weekly Update 2/5/18

Good evening, Friends.

Calls to Members of Congress

Take some time this week to learn about these issues and give your Members of Congress (MOCs) a call:

  • Cuts to Medicaid and Medicare. Paul Ryan has spent his whole life dreaming about making poor and middle class peoples’ lives harder. He is calling it “welfare reform”now, but it really means big cuts to programs like Medicare that millions rely upon. We need to stop this before it goes anywhere.
  • Trump is undertaking a “Nuclear Posture Review,” and he wants to waste more money and rattle sabres by building more nuclear weapons. 16 Senators, including Kamala Harris and Dianne Feinsteinhave signed a letter opposing this impulsive and dangerous move. Please call our Senators to thank them.
  • The Dream Act is still a top priority, since Congress has done nothing, and the March 5 deadline is coming fast. Senators McCain and Coons introduced a bipartisan immigration bill that includes protection for Dreamers and ignores Trump’s ridiculous immigration demands. Let’s get this bill up for a vote! Call both Senators and let them know about it.
  • If you still have some energy left after all that, take a moment to check out Indivisible’s page on the Nunes memo and Congressman Schiff’s response.

Here are contact numbers for our local MOCs:

Rep. Doris Matsui: (916) 698-5600
Rep. Ami Bera: (916) 635-0505
Sen. Kamala Harris: (916) 448-2787
Sen. Dianne Feinstein: (415) 393-0707

Next Meeting

We are pleased to announce that Assembly Member Kevin McCarty will be joining us at our next meeting! Asm. McCarty is a progressive ally, and he represents most of the city of Sacramento, as well as some other portions of Sacramento County.

The meeting will happen at 7:00 in Room 10 of Sierra2 Center for the Arts and Community – 2791 24th Street, Sacramento. See you there!

Graphic Designer Help Needed

We are looking for someone with some graphic design skills to help out with some projects. If you can help, please send an email to this address (IndivisibleSacramentoCA@Gmail.com). Thanks in advance!

Cal Away Team

California Away Team is working harder than ever to help win the midterm elections. They knock on the doors of Democrats who skipped past midterm elections so that they won’t make the same mistake this time. Right now they’re working on keeping Congressional District 7 (Elk Grove, Carmichael, Orangevale, etc.) Blue, and they’re also helping to make a progressive change in District 4 (which spans from Roseville to a big chunk of the mountains), which is currently represented by Trump enabler Tom McClintock.

There are volunteer opportunities in both districts this weekend! You can volunteer to unseat McClintock on Saturday and help in District 7 on Sunday. Check out their website for details on how to help!


Weekly Update 1/29/18

Good evening, friends.

Today has been a day of discouraging news, as Trump and his toadies continued their assault on Democratic norms. The Deputy Director of the FBI was forced to resign earlier than expected due to pressure from the Administration. In Congress, the House Intelligence Committee voted to release a bogus memo launching a hyper-partisan attack on the FBI, thanks to Chairman Devin Nunes. And Trump failed to implement sanctions on Russia, despite overwhelming bi-partisan support.

In times like these, we need to look to the future, and to each other for support. Over the past year, we have built an amazing community of dedicated activists in Sacramento and around the nation. Rather than get discouraged, we need to keep up our efforts. Together we are keeping American democracy alive. And this year, we will all come together to defeat cowardly Congressmen like Nunes, who are so afraid of their party’s big donors that they have stopped caring about our country’s freedom.

Thank you for standing with us. Thank you for being Indivisible.

Dream Act

The Dream Act is still a top priority for Indivisible nationwide. Please take some time to visit their website and learn about it if you’re not already familiar. California’s Senators are “Dream Heroes,” who have voted to stand with Dreamers. Please call them and thank them this week – even if you’ve already done so before. They like to hear from us when they’re doing a good job. And please urge them to keep up the battle to pass a clean Dream Act.

Next Meeting

Our next meeting will be held on February 21st at 7:00. Our meetings are the third Wednesday evening of every month at Sierra2 Center, 2791 24th Street in Sacramento.

California Away Team

If you want to throw out the bad legislators and keep the good ones, California Away Team is a great volunteer opportunity. Join them on Sunday, February 11th to knock on a few doors and reach out to registered Democrats who have skipped recent midterm elections. Find the details at their website.
