Indivisible's Priorities This Week
"Pick your issues that best reflect your values." - Brooke Gladstone
  1. Now is the time to defeat TrumpCare. Senate Republicans are planning a TrumpCare vote this month. Nobody knows how it will go—we can win this. To help, we have brand new resources to help you tell your Senators to stop TrumpCare:
  2. Investigate the Trump-GOP-Russia connection. "We are urging our groups to demand their members of Congress support both an independent commission AND impeachment hearings. Impeachment won't happen overnight - it will be a long-term fight, and we'll be with you every step of the way."     -- The Indivisible Project
What do you care about? Call your Members of Congress now!

“Don’t assume (Trump) will fail just because his actions are so far outside the American mainstream. The rule of law depends on a society’s willingness to stand up for it when it’s under threat. This is our time of testing.”
