Rep Chrissy Houlahan ( PA-06) fundraiser with Katherine Clark
Monday, March 29 at 5 pm
Chrissy was a Minuteman Indivisible-supported candidate in 2018 when she flipped PA-06 blue. Chrissy is the real deal -- an Air Force veteran, a scientist, an inner city science teacher, and an entrepreneur.
She serves on the Committee on Armed Services, the Committee on Foreign Affairs and the Committee on Small Business.
Early money is so critical to campaigns like Chrissy’s as a strong showing early on can discourage challengers from entering. And as you all know, every seat is critical to hold in 2022 -- losing just five seats would lose us the House Majority.
The event is on Zoom on Monday 3/29 at 5 pm.
See theMinuteman Indivisible home page for an updated list of current opportunities to send text messages about key issues to voters. Movement Labs, MoveOn, and Working Families all have campaigns running now.
There is a competitive race in Texas’ 6th Congressional District and we may be able to turn this seat BLUE. Democrats in Texas are outnumbered by Republicans and they need all the help that they can get from activists in other states.
Why is this race important? The Democrats have only a very tiny margin of control in the House. The Republicans are organizing to re-take the House next year. If we can build the Democratic majority by a few seats in 2021, it will strengthen our position as we enter 2022.
This postcard campaign is operated by Flip the West, a strong progressive partner in 2020. They have created a Covid-Friendly process that allows you to obtain your mailing addresses from the Internet so that you can work from home. The information can be obtained by clicking on the link below.
Minuteman Indivisible celebrates four years of RESISTANCE.
Sunday February 21, upwards of 30 people came together to reflect on all that members accomplished in the past four years and plan for the important work that needs to be done moving forward.
We discussed a wide range of issues and challenges and agreed to focus in three areas:
Voting rights, voter protection, and voter registration
Elections, with a focus on 2022 Senate and Congressional races at the national level
Key legislative issues, especially developing our relationship with Rep. Katherine Clark
In order to move forward in these key areas, several people stepped forward to organize meetings to address each one of those initiatives.
To facilitate our work, we encourage everyone to join the Minuteman Indivisible Slack Workgroup. Link to join.
Once you've joined the MI Slack Workgroup, join individual channels:
And any others you are interested in.
Use Relational Organizing to Support HR1 and HR51
Our Members of Congress support the democracy reforms of HR1 - For the People Act and HR51 - Statehood for DC. We need these robust reforms to target voter suppression, gerrymandering, money in politics and to gain full representation for all Americans! Without a functional democracy, we cannot achieve the many other progressive goals we would like to see.
Relational organizing means that if each of us uses our own personal contacts we might be able to promote these bills in other states! Please encourage all of your friends, family and contacts in other states to use this handyIndivisible toolto be connected to their Members of Congress!
So take a moment to reconnect with loved ones far away and save democracy at the same time!
