Indivisible Matches Your December Donations Here are three huge things that, together, we accomplished in 2018:
Elected progressives in Oregon and around the US with our canvassing, postcarding, and campaigning
Helped defeat Measures 105 and 106, mean-spirited right-wing proposals unfair to Oregonians
Increased voter turnout with our voter registration drives, Candidate Scorecard, and Voter's Guide
With your help, INCO will continue to strengthen democracy and increase civic participation. Please donate to raise $500 this month for INCO. Indivisible national will match December donations up to a total of $500..

Jill Lepore has written an engaging history of the US, titled THESE TRUTHS, that's getting rave reviews. She presents perspectives, people, and realities seldom dealt with in traditional histories. She's also an engaging speaker and question-answerer, so you might enjoy watching her appearance at a Politics and Prose book-signing in Washington, DC.
"For us ordinary human beings, the right thing to do is most often the difficult thing to do, and this is especially so when it comes to knowing and speaking the truth.” — Clancy Martin
Kudos to these Indivisible activists making a difference in 2018!
ACTIONPRIORITIES Focus on the issues you care about most
A Good Ask for Your Members of Congress is:
• SPECIFIC: Time-limited and precise • STRATEGIC: You know what it will accomplish • SEEABLE: You can see when they respond
Members of Congress care about getting re-elected. Contact ONLY elected officials who represent you. You don't want to dilute the power of actual constituents! Be sure to tell Members of Congress when you agree with their positions and votes.
