Team Leaders Share #RiseUp4HealthCare
Selfies and Stories at Harris' Office
On Monday, July 17, leaders from Indivisible: Conejo's Disability Rights and Healthcare action teams visited the Los Angeles offices of Sen. Kamala Harris to share their progress on the #RiseUp4HealthCare social-media initiative. They presented a display featuring dozens of selfies collected over the last few weeks, as well as a book full of healthcare stories shared by citizens from the Conejo Valley and as far away as Ohio and Texas. Sen. Harris' staff took the opportunity to discuss the latest updates on the GOP healthcare bill, and to explore ways in which the senator can work with Indivisible groups and other activists to advance progressive causes and stop the Republicans' efforts to repeal the Affordable Care Act.
Activists Head for Central Valley
To Heat Up Race for 22nd District
In the wee hours of Saturday morning, 70 progressive activists from the Conejo Valley and across California will rise before the sun, fill their travel mugs with coffee, meet up with fellow road warriors at carpool locations, and begin their journey to Fresno for a sun-kissed weekend adventure in voter registration.
At least, that's one way to look at it ...
While there may not be much to romanticize about finding and signing up new voters, there also may be nothing more important to our chances of ending Republican domination of the federal government in 2018. Indivisible: Conejo activists have led and participated in multiple registration efforts in Rep. Steve Knight's district throughout the spring -- but this weekend our Field Director, Jennifer Eis, has stepped up her game dramatically. Working with local Democrats and progressive leaders in California's 22nd district, she has organized activists from every part of the state to converge on the Fresno area -- home to Rep. Devin Nunes, the ethically challenged (if recused) chairman of the House Intelligence Committee.
Our thanks to the canvassers from here and elsewhere who will fan out across Tulare County this weekend to register the new voters who will help bounce Nunes from office in 2018. Even if you're not making the trip, you can still contribute to their efforts by purchasing lunch for an activist! Before the end of the day today (Friday 7/21), go to https://subway.cashstar.com/gift-card/buy/ and send a Subway egift card to firstname.lastname@example.org.
News from this weekend's trip will appear in the next Indivisible: Conejo newsletter. Watch this space!
