OUR ACTIONS & EVENTS
We did it! In 2020 we took back the White House, the Senate, and kept our majority in the House. In 2022, we worked hard on the Midterms and helped hold the Senate, hold House seats in IL and MI, and helped Democratic Governors in WI and MI win. Join Indivisible Evanston and help us work together in 2023 to build a better country for all. Scroll down for information about how you can get involved today !

MARCHES & RALLIES
Since 2017, Indivisible Evanston members have led and participated in many marches and rallies for causes important to us. Many of us were inspired to join Indivisible after the first Women's March in 2017. This year, the Women's March will be in Madison, WI, and there will be sister marches all over the country.

Registering voters is a big part of our activism. From 2017-2019, we registered voters in person. Due to Covid-19, we took our voter registration online, contacting 200,00 voters by phone and text in 2020. In 2022, we registered voters in person and online in Illinois Wisconsin and in Illinois to make sure they ready to go to the polls for the November Midterm Election. In 2023, we are making calls and sending texts to help register voters ahead of the Wisconsin spring election and important Supreme Court race.
