Abraham Lincoln was born February 12, 1809, 213 years ago. Indivisible exists because America is still reckoning with the legacy of slavery, racism, greed, and inequality - and with Lincoln's determination to create a better future.

"Lincoln saw clearly that if we give up the principle of equality before the law, we have given up the whole game." Historian Heather Cox Richardson's provides a moving 
account of Lincoln's respect for "the logic of equality."

Kudos to INCO activists for their recent letters in the Astorian about the accomplishments of the Biden administration!

You can help ensure that every issue of the Astorian from now til November has at least one Letter to the Editor recognizing Biden's and Democratic achievements.

Write a few sentences or more, up to 250 words. Send to, along with your name, address, and phone.

"The economy under Biden shows that his traditional vision of a government that supports ordinary people rather than cutting taxes and funneling money to “makers” works; the extraordinary unity of NATO in the face of Putin’s determination to advance authoritarian goals shows that multilateral cooperation rather than unilateral military action works, too. For those determined to regain power, disruption and destabilization are the order of the day."
