Weekly Update – 1/14/19
Wednesday night is meeting night. County Supervisor Phil Serna will be our special guest speaker. This is a great opportunity to talk to one of the local elected officials who represents us and works on so many of the issues that have a big effect on us: such as affordable housing, homelessness, the Sheriff’s Department, and many more.
We’ll be at the usual spot at the usual time: Wedneday evening (January 16th) at 7:00 p.m., room 10, Sierra2 Center, 2791 24th Street.
Congratulations to the Indivisible activists who won election as Democratic Party delegates! Indivisible Sacramento’s Regina Banks joins Elk Grove’s Dennessa Atiles and Nancy Castignetti on the victorious Labor-Progressive slate of delegates from Assembly District 9. Around the state, Indivisible leaders are running and winning delegate chairs. Our progressive ideals will help shape the future of the state party.
Help End Trump’s Government Shutdown
Indivisible is asking people across the nation to call our senators and urge them to hold firm on Trump’s disastrous government shutdown. The Democratic House is already passing bills to reopen the government, so we need to get Mitch McConnell’s attention now. Please take some time to call Senators Harris and Feinstein and urge them not to allow any Senate business to move forward until there is a clean bill to reopen the government with ZERO funding for Trump’s ridiculous wall.

Once you’re done with the phone calls, get ready to march. The third annual Women’s March is this Saturday morning. Join us so we can all march together! We’re gathering on 8th Street on the east side of the park, right in front of St. Andrews AME Church. We’ll start gathering at around 9:00 a.m.
Note: the church is not sponsoring our march – we have chosen it as an easy-to-find landmark where we can find each other away from the large crowds.
Indivisible Sacramento Shirts
Indivisible Sacramento T-Shirts are back! For a limited time, you can order one of our shirts. Here is the link to our shirts at Custom Ink. Orders are open until February 21st – after that point, all shirts will be delivered, and we’ll give them out at our March meeting.
Note: Indivisible Sacramento does not make any money off these shirts; if you’re looking to donate to us, you can do so at our Act Blue page.
