Dear Evanston Indivisibles, 


We hope that everyone is staying healthy and safe during this challenging time. As you know, our focus is now "at home activism." Thank you to all of you who have become virtual activists and phone banking, textbanking, postcarding, contacting our representatives in D.C., and more. As they do for us, we hope that these actions help give you a sense of hope and purpose during this pandemic. 


For the next week, our focus will be on reaching voters in Wisconsin before their April 7 primary election, which the state is still planning to hold, despite Governor Tony Evers declaring a state of emergency and trying to postpone the primary due to the coronavirus outbreak. The GOP has been fighting the Wisconsin Democratic Party on many frronts to fight postponing and voting by mail on many fronts. Why? Ben Wikler, Chair of the Wisconsin Democratic Party explains in this Twitter thread or READ MORE HERE. Then sign upfor one of our phone banks this week through April 7th and help inform Wisconsinites about voting safely.


We are also doing our best to only share verified and accurate information about coronavirus and COVID-19, and have a block below with links to the best resources. We also have a resource for you on how to avoid sharing disinformation or even scams about this pandemic on social media or email. We hope you spread it -- NOT germs -- far and wide. And we are open to feedback and suggestions!


From our national Indivisible leadership: We hope you’ve been staying healthy and safe. Thank you to those of you who have called your legislators, joined calls and webinars, and sent in your questions and comments. As we all adjust together to our new normal and our lives change to mitigate the spread of the coronavirus and protect ourselves and our families, Indivisibles all over the country have once again risen to the occasion and shown that we know how to respond in the face of sudden, seemingly insurmountable challenges. However you’re processing and responding to this, we’re grateful you’re a part of our network of changemakers who know how to take care of each other.Click here or see below to find out more about Indivisible's response to the coronavirus crisis: The People's Bailout.



In solidarity and resistance,
