Welcome to September, the end of summer and the beginning of some of our best weather. Only 64 days to Election Day!
Get Out the Vote Activities
Postcard Writing Workshop
Indivisible Ferndale held our first Postcard Writing Workshop last Thursday. I’m always so impressed by the response I receive from Indivisible Ferndale members. Eighteen of you folks showed up last Thursday (on less than 48 hours notice) to write postcards to CA 25 voters in support of Katie Hill, the Democrat running against the incumbent Republican Steven Knight for Congress.
Together, we wrote over 175 personal postcards to those voters encouraging them to help FLIP the CA-25 district to BLUE! We impressed my friends in Sonoma Indivisible so much that Jack sent me another 50 voter addresses to finish out our 250 postcard stash. Check out photos from our postcard party here.
If you took some postcards to write at home, please return them by this Friday, September 7 at Barb and John’s house at 1095 Cream Court. If we are not home, please leave your completed postcards next to our front door.
We still have three packets of postcards and addresses to finish for Katie. You can pick up additional packets by the front door. Please fill out the sign up form.
Coming soon: 500 postcards for Democrat Harley Rouda who is running against Republican Dana Rohrabacher in congressional district CA-48.
The postcards for Harley are preprinted with a small area for a personal one sentence message, but will require addressing and postage. Visit the Harley Rouda for Congress website here. Stay tuned for more info. View Harley’s postcard here.
Everyone sends text messages to everyone these days. Did you know that this same technology can be used to reach voters as well? Kristie and Mark Fellows will be training us on this technology at their home.
Action: Bring your phone and learn how to use texting to reach voters!

And last, but certainly not least . . .
Tomorrow, our democracy is once again threatened by the Trump administration. This time the result will affect Supreme Court decisions for decades to come. Tomorrow, Tuesday, September 4, the U.S. Senate begins the confirmation hearing for Brett Kavanaugh as the next justice of the U.S. Supreme Court.
Together, We are Indivisible!
