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 !
Join our amazing postcard team and get out the vote by writing postcards to voters in states and districts with important, competitive races. Our latest postcard campaign focused on reminding Wisconsin voters to protect reproductive freedoms, workers' rights, and voting rights when voting in the Spring Election and Supreme Court race. We mailed 50,000 postcards to Wisconsin voters before the April 4 election!
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 was in Madison, WI Make sure you are signed up for our newsletter and email mailing list, so you will to be the first to be notified about any upcoming rallies, marches or protests here in Evanston or in Chicago.
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're registering voters in person and online ahead of the Wisconsin spring election and important Supreme Court race. Sign up for our newsletter to get the latest updates on our in-person voter registration events!
Join us to help TOTV (Text Out The Vote) for important elections! The Indivisible Chicago Alliance Texting Team reached hundreds of thousands of voters in Illinois, Michigan, Wisconsin and Georgia in 2020 & 2022 to make sure they had a plan and everything they needed to vote for Democrats. Currently, we are texting for the upcoming April Wisconsin Supreme Court election with IndivisiText, Field Team 6 and Working Families Party.
Freedom from gun violence is one of the many reasons that we fight for progressive values, messaging and candidates. We often wonder, do we have to live like this? Mark your calendars and join us on Zoom on Tuesday, April 11 for a discussion about gun violence activism, legislation and prevention. We'll hear from leading voices in our community who are fighting for freedom from gun violence. Learn what the impact of recent legislation like the IL Gun Violence Prevention and Community Safety Act and the IL assault weapon bans mean to our state and community.
One of the important ways that Indivisible volunteers connect with voters is through door-to-door canvassing and in-person conversations. Our current canvassing opportunities in Wisconsin in Milwaukee, Racine and Kenosha are through WisDems, Indivisible Milwaukee and Indivisible Chicago Alliance. And there are TWO canvassing bus trips from Evanston on 3/26 and 4/1. Sign up and help get out the vote for the Spring election!
