Come join our Postcard Party Thursday evening!/
From now until November, we need to focus our energy on taking back Congress. You can help on Thursday evening. It’s fun and easy – all you need to do is fill out postcards to voters in California’s 10th Congressional District where Josh Harder is going to take on Jeff Denham, who has been a reliable vote for all of Trump’s worst policies, from health care repeal to the Tax Scam. We’ll be at the Robbie Waters Library, 7335 Gloria Drive, starting at 6:00.
We’ll provide the pens, postcards, and voter addresses. You don’t need to bring anything, but if you want to bring some 35 cent stamps, please feel free. Also, we will provide some light snacks, and if you’d like to bring some food or drink to share, that is also appreciated!
Families Belong Together
In case you need a reminder of what the Trump Administration is capable of, there are still over 2,000 children who are incarcerated apart from their families. Families are being detained indefinitely, and Trump has openly talked about deporting people with no trials or due process. Are you angry yet?
Trump and his allies have trouble hearing us unless we shout at the top of our longs. That’s why this Saturday across the country, concerned citizens are coming together for the Families Belong Together rally. The Sacramento event will be at outside the Immigration Building, 650 Capitol Mall at 10:00 a.m. Look for the Indivisible Sacramento banner! Also, remember to bring plenty of water and dress for the weather. It’s going to be hot – but not hot enough to silence us.
In the meantime, make sure to call your Members of Congress every day. Tell them they cannot compromise on this issue. We need legislation immediately with no family separations, no detaining of children, and an end to the draconian Zero Tolerance policy that caused this mess in the first place.

State Capitol News
Our effort to bring Net Neutrality to California suffered a setback last week. Our friend Senator Scott Wiener’s Net Neutrality bill, SB 822, was hijacked by a Senator who is too friendly with the communications lobby. As a result, the Assembly committee amended the bill to make it much weaker. But do not give up hope! There may still be a chance to restore the bill to its original version. We will keep you posted on this – at some point we may need people to show up at the Capitol and voice our support. In the meantime, please call your Assembly Member and ask them to support a strong Net Neutrality bill.
We also need people to call our Senators to support AB3131, which is co-sponsored by the ACLU and Indivisible. AB3131 will require police departments to hold public hearings before purchasing military equipment. The Assembly has passed it, so we need to make sure the Senate is on board.
Don’t know your state representatives? No problem. You can find your State Assembly Members and Senators here.
