OUR ACTIONS & EVENTS
Join Indivisible Evanston and help us take back the White House, the Senate, and keep our majority in the House in November, so we can all work together to build a better country for all. Scroll down for information about how you can get involved today !
Sending handwritten postcards is a great way to reach out to voters and encourage them to get out to the polls and vote! While we can't meet in person to have postcard parties, you can pick them up 7 days a week to write at home and join us to write them together on Zoom! We've sent out over 200,00 postcards this year, but there is still a lot of work to be done to get out the vote in November!
Are you eager to reach out to voters but not so keen about talking on the phone? Then join our Indivisible Chicago Alliance Texting Team and help build the big blue wave in November, one text at a time! We are texting with the national Indivisible texting program, IndivisiText and with the Democratic Parties of Wisconsin and Michigan to get out the vote!
Indivisible Evanston holds general meetings for our members every month, featuring guest speakers who are our represenative candidates, activists. Due to the pandemic guidelines, these meetings are now taking place on Zoom.
TUESDAY, 10/20, 7pm: Indivisible Evanston Needs You - It's Now or Never! Let's Give it Our All...

MARCHES & RALLIES
Indivisible Evanston members have let 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. Now, not even COVID-19 can stop us from rallying, as we can participate in virtual and socially distanced events. Make sure you are signed up for our newsletter to be the first to know out upcoming rallies and marches by clicking the button below!
One of the main ways Indivisible typically connects with voters is through door-to-door canvassing. We deployed hundreds of volunteers to swing districts and states in 2018-19. Due to the pandemic and the inherent risks of in person activities and carpooling to swing districts or states, we are not currently organizing group canvassing. However, there are some new canvassing opportunities happening in Michigan and other swing states in the final push to Election Day. For more information and to sign up, please click below!
Only 55.7% of the voting-age population turned out to vote in the 2016 election, and that needs to change if we're going to vote Trump out! Even though we are not doing in-person voter registration events right now, you can help change this number by clicking the button below and signing up for our virtual voter registration campaigns. Don't forget to check your own registration and make sure your friends and family all vote -- by mail, early or on election day in November.
Want great book suggestions about the issues you care about, and an inviting group with whom you can talk about the books you read? Look no further than the Indivisible Evanston Book Club! Our book club is currently on hiatus until 2021 so we can focus on the 2020 election and actions in between November and January. Stay tuned for updates and join us then!
