Senate Majority Leader Schumer promised a vote by MLK day even if it means archaic Senate rules like the filibuster are on the chopping block! Although this has been postponed until Tuesday, it does seem like he has found a way to finagle non-filibuster-able debate.
Do These Things Today and Every Day Until Voting Rights Are Protected!

Given the amount of time and energy every Minuteman Indivisible member must devote to educating voters and getting them to the polls, we are consolidating our organizational efforts.
Many Minuteman Indivisible leaders and members put tremendous effort into organizing Together for 2020. With its success, Together for 2020 has committed to extending its work into the future and renamed the organization to Together We Elect.
Minuteman Indivisible will work with Together We Elect for organizing activities, as we did in 2020. The Together We Elect web site will be our principal source of information going forward. All Minuteman Indivisible events will be posted on the Together We Elect calendaralong with activities from other organizations.
The Minuteman Muster will continue to highlight upcoming events and provide the information and motivation it will take to get the job done in 2022.
We are also continuing to work with other Indivisible chapters in Massachusetts. If you are not already subscribed to the Indivisible Mass Coalition newsletter, please consider signing up. The IMC newsletter is a great way to learn about current activities sponsored by all the members of the Coalition.
