Weekly Update 9/17/18
Tomorrow (Tuesday) is our monthly meeting! We are honored to be joined by California’s Secretary of State Alex Padilla, who will be speaking with us and taking our questions about voting rights, election security, and other very timely election-related topics. Remember, we will not be in our normal room – this one will be held in Curtis Hall, not Room 10. The meeting time will remain the same: 7:00 p.m.
To all who are unable to attend due to the Yom Kippur holiday, we again apologize for the scheduling conflict. We will be recording and archiving the meeting on our website for those who cannot make it in person.
Nevada Voter Outreach
There’s still time to sign up for our Reno, Nevada voter outreach trip September 21-23. Unfortunately, we aren’t able to offer free lodging to anyone who hasn’t already signed up, but we’d still love to have you with us. We’re leaving Friday evening, then we’ll spend Saturday morning and afternoon and midday Sunday knocking on doors to talk about the huge upcoming U.S. Senate race.
The fate of the entire Senate could very well come down to this election in Nevada, and Reno is the most closely-divided region of the state. So if you can make it at all, please join us. Send an e-mail to this e-mail address to RSVP.
Some folks have asked if we will be offering any other chances to help with Nevada, such as phone banking or postcard campaigns. We are asking the team from Indivisible Northern Nevada if they have need any other assistance, and we will let you know as soon as we hear anything.
Senate Bill 822, which establishes strong Net Neutrality protections in our state, is on the Governor’s desk and awaiting a signature. We still don’t know for sure what Governor Brown is going to, so make sure you make a call to his office and urge him to sign.
You can call Governor Brown at (916) 445-2841.
Postcard Party for Jaclyn Moreno
Our postcard party for Jaclyn Moreno is on Wednesday, September 26th at Round Table Pizza on Florin Road in Pocket-Greenhaven. If you haven’t heard of Jaclyn, please check out her campaign website. She is a local Indivisible leader and committed activist who is running for a seat on the Cosumnes Services District. It would be amazing to see a local leader of our movement elected this fall. Join us at 6:30 p.m. for postcards. To sweeten the deal, we’re providing pizza!
Immigration Resources on our Website
It seems like every week we have something new and useful on our website. This week, make sure you check out our new section on resources for helping immigrants and getting involved with immigration issues.
Adopt A Voting Booth
Indivisible Sacramento has adopted a Vote Center – meaning we have volunteered to spread the word about the voting location and help increase turnout for the November 6th election. Our adopted location is the Marina Vista Community Center at 240 Seavey Circle in Sacramento. We’ll be looking for volunteers soon to help with this project, so please stay tuned for future announcements.
