Speak Out Against Racism
Have you been to the “Speak Out on Racism. Silence is Deadly” sign on Main Street? Arne has been busy building a large note board (with paper, pen, pushpins and a writing surface) so that any passerby can write a note in support of the sign’s message. Paulina has asked if Indivisible Ferndale would write more notes so that the community can see (and read) these messages of support. She would like to see the entire board filled with notes.
In the photo at the left, you might notice more of Arne’s handiwork (his “honey do” list has been growing) by adding stones and mulch for all the plants that have been delivered. You might also notice the large space where no notes are posted. That space is waiting for you. Do not remain silent. Your voice needs to be heard.
Help Flip the Senate in Iowa
Our Get Out the Vote (GOTV) campaign in support of both California House races and winnable Senate races across the country continues. Currently, we are writing postcards to Democratic voters in the state of Iowa. The script we use encourages a vote for Theresa Greenfield for the Senate. She is running against incumbent Republican, Joni Ernst.
Ernst is one of eleven US Senators on Indivisible’s Payback Project list for removal from Congress. According to Indivisible “Is it bad to ask a foreign power to investigate a political opponent? Joni Ernst doesn’t care! The Iowa Senator is particularly unconcerned with the rule of law when it comes to Donald Trump. Instead, she would rather spend her days in office voting to take away health care or create tax cuts for billionaires. Who needs oversight and accountability? Not Joni, apparently.”
If you would like to write some postcards to Iowa voters, please send me an email here. We still have two packs left on the front porch.

Indivisible Textbanking Trainings
Learn how to start texting with the IndivisiText program on our platform TextOut! We’re planning to send millions of texts before Election Day and we’re looking for volunteers who want to help. We send texts for endorsed IndivisiCandidates, to do volunteer recruitment, get out the vote actions, and more. These trainings are mandatory for anyone who wants to text. Please note these trainings will all cover the same material so there is no need to attend more than one.
