Hello friends,

We hope you are staying safe and healthy. It may seem like we cannot do anything right now, but we can still call our Members of Congress!

Indivisible asks us to do two things as Congress considers an economic relief package:

  1. Call both your senators to demand they center people over profits. Even if they aren’t taking calls today (we’re hearing reports that some are), leave a voicemail. Text PPL to 977-79 and we’ll connect you, or use this call page to read through the script and get connected. If voicemail boxes are full, you can also send an email here.
  2. Record a 30 second video that says people over profits. We’re compiling videos from all over the country from people just like you with a simple message: your name, where you’re from, and that you demand a people-first response from your members of Congress. Visit our video tool, look at the camera from your computer or phone, say your name and where you’re from, and the message, “I demand Congress put people over profits.” We’ll tag your senators, and you can share with friends and neighbors to get involved in this fight.

Indivisible also has a page about the Coronavirus and what we can say to our Members of Congress. If you find yourself with a little extra free time these days, check it out!

NorCal Resist

We’d also like to call attention to the work that is being done by our friends at NorCal Resist.

In the past two days, NorCal Resist has heard from over a dozen migrant families that have lost work due to COVID-19. This weekend they delivered 19 rent support checks and emergency food bags to local undocumented and asylum seeking families who unexpectedly find themselves without work, and we know the need will continue to grow.

These families aren’t able to access Unemployment or Disability Insurance, leaving them particularly vulnerable to eviction. While the City of Sacramento has acted to halt evictions, folks living in Sacramento and other surrounding counties do not have these protections.

If you are able, NorCal Resist would be grateful for you to join their  monthly sustainer team. You may make a one-time or recurring donation HERE.




Weekly Update – 1/2/19

Hello Friends,

The news is still developing, but as of now it sounds like the Trump Administration has carried out an illegal assassination against an Iranian military official in a move that is almost perfectly designed to provoke a war.

We must take action immediately. Call your Members of Congress as soon as you read this. Demand that they speak out against starting a war with Iran, and ask them to introduce a resolution condemning this illegal assassination.

Rep. Doris Matsui – 916 498 5600
Rep. Ami Bera – 916 635 0505
Sen. Dianne Feinstein – 415 393 0707
Sen. Kamala Harris – 916 448 2787


The only way to truly ensure that Trump can’t start any wars is to throw him and all of his supporters out of office. We have an election to win this year. You can help by joining us on January 8th to write postcards to voters in the 50th Congressional District. It’s easy, fun, and a great chance to sharpen your skills for the campaign ahead! We’ll be at First United Methodist Church, 2100 J Street, from 7:00 – 9:00 on Wednesday, January 8th.

You can find out about postcard events and other opportunities to get involved at our website’s Events page.

350 Sacramento Candidate Forum

Finally, we must make sure we know where our local candidates stand on environmental issues. 350 Sacramento, the Sierra Club, and the Environmental Council of Sacramento are hosting a Candidate Forum for the open seat on the County Board of Supervisors. The battle against Global Warming is being waged at the local level, so let’s make sure we elect leaders who are committed to ending pollution. The candidate forum is on Wednesday, January 22nd from 6:00 – 7:30 at the Carmichael Library (5605 Marconi Ave).


Weekly Update – 12/3/19

Can you join us this Sunday? We are looking for volunteers to help California Away Team talk to voters who could help swing a Congressional election next year. It’s easy – we’re just reminding people to vote and asking them to fill out postcards to themselves. If you’ve never knocked on doors to turn out voters before, CalAway is the best way to start, and they’ll teach you how to do it. If you’re a veteran canvasser, this is a great way to get back into it before 2020.

Please go to CalAway’s website to sign up. We just need two hours of your time, from 10:00 – 12:00 or from 12:00 – 2:00.

Pozole Fundraiser

Also a reminder that NorCal Resist’s Pozole fundraiser is happening on Saturday the 14th. Thanks to the efforts of all who donated, Indivisible Sacramento is a sponsor of this event. If you haven’t donated and would like to attend, it’s just $20 per ticket, and it goes to a great cause, helping refugees who have relocated to Sacramento.


Finally, remember to check out website’s events tab to find out about postcard parties and other great opportunities to help win the 2020 elections, such as the Sunday afternoon postcard events every week at 1033 S Street, or our next Wednesday evening postcard party, 12/11 at First United Methodist Church.



Weekly Update – 11/13/19
Hello Friends,

In a remarkable display of bad manners, the DNC scheduled the next presidential debate for the same night as our monthly meeting next Wednesday (11/20). We didn’t want anyone to miss out on the debate, and we certainly didn’t want anyone to miss our monthly get-together. So let’s watch the debate together. We’re starting earlier than usual – 5:30 p.m. – so if you can make it that early, please join us. If you can’t make it at 5:30, just stop by whenever you can.

We will provide pizza, snacks, and drinks. Also, we’ll have a fun activity for those who want to keep busy. Our postcard campaign for the CA 50 Congressional race is going strong, and we’ll have postcards and pens available for those who want to help.

Postcards, debate, pizza – what more can you ask for? The meeting, as usual, is at Sierra2 Center, 2791 24th Street, room 10. Join us at 5:30!

Donations for NorCal Resist

Thank you to all who have donated to us this month, as we are sharing a large portion of our donations with NorCal Resist to help with the incredible work they’re doing to help refugees in our area. They do everything from finding shelter to providing escorts to drive refugees to appointments and court hearings. If you donate through our Act Blue page before 11/20, your donation will help NorCal Resist. If you donate, you’re also eligible to win tickets to their December Pozole Dinner fundraiser on 12/14. (if you’d like more details on the fundraiser – you can check out the event page here).
