January 3, 2019: A Day of Action - Katherine Clark's District Office, 701 Concord Ave. Suite 101, Cambridge, MA 02138
The Indivisible groups of MA-05 (Katherine Clark's district) are planning a coordinated action at her district office in Cambridge on Thursday, January 3, 2019. Tentatively scheduled for early afternoon, we will meet with members of Clark's staff to thank our Congresswoman for her work on the Hill and in the midterm elections, and we will combine our voices to share our vision of bold, progressive action in the new legislative session.
Foremost, on our list is strong support of H.R.1, the Democrats' planned first bill to preserve our democracy with reforms to our voting processes and to campaign finance regulations. Other issues we hope our member of congress will lift up and support include the Green New Deal, a clean Dream Act, and common sense gun violence legislation.
There will be more information coming about January 3 in subsequent emails this month, so stay tuned. For now, if you would like to carpool to Cambridge for the event, please fill out this short form; Harriet will be in touch to coordinate.
Still need a primer on how our strategy has shifted after the midterm elections? Read the Indivisible on Offense Guide and State Guide here.

Sunday, January 20: Ranked Choice Voting Workshop, Lincoln
Are you worried about the handling of midterm elections in North Carolina, Wisconsin, and Michigan? Are you curious about why Maine has become the first state in the US to use Ranked Choice Voting? Are you wondering how US citizens can make the electoral process more fair and effective?
You'll want to attend the lively presentation offered by Jim Henderson on the topic of Ranked Choice Voting on January 20 at 3:00 p.m. at Bemis Hall in Lincoln. Henderson is a member of the Board of Directors of Voter Choice Massachusetts, a non-partisan, non-profit organization dedicated to educating the Massachusetts public about electoral reforms and Ranked Choice Voting.

Dan McCready's race is not over!!
The MI Elections Team celebrated wins for 3 out of the 5 House candidates we supported in 2018, but there's a chance that number will improve. Alarming allegations of voter fraud in the 9th District of North Carolina have led to the lack of certification of the results of Dan McCready's loss in that race. You can read all the details here.
McCready may find soon himself campaigning all over again, as it's possible that a new election will be called. Stay tuned to hear how you can support Dan again! If you'd like to send him a donation, our MI ActBlue page for Dan is still active - be generous!
