Your most powerful tool against Trump

Indivisible groups like ours have played a critical role in resisting the Trump agenda, stopping TrumpCare, and building power nationwide. Now, with the 2018 midterms coming up, we’re going on the offensive. Together, we have the power not just to resist, but to win key electoral victories and reshape government. And the stakes have never been higher.

Elections are critical to stopping Trump. The Trump administration didn’t come out of nowhere. Republicans—and conservative Tea Party activists in particular—built power for years by winning elections at all levels of government. From local school boards and state legislatures to Congress and eventually the Oval Office, the Tea Party effectively stopped progressive legislation and got in the driver’s seat to push their hateful policies.

Now, it’s our turn to take back that power, and then hold our leaders accountable for stopping Trump and passing progressive policies. That’s why Stand Up SF is prioritizing voter contact over meetings with our MoCs between now and November. The most crucial thing we can do right now is to get out the Democratic vote.


ONE THING YOU CAN DO RIGHT NOW


Sign up for our phone bank next Sunday to elect Democrat Josh Harder in CA District 10.

Can’t make it on Sunday? Sign up to canvass with us in Tracy on the 15th, or join one of Swing Left’s get-out-the-vote actions in District 10.

Stop the killing

We have a great opportunity now to hold police officers acountable for planting evidence, sexually assaulting, or killing members of the public. We are closer than ever to lifting the veil of police secrecy with Senate Bill 1421. This bill would give the public access to records of police misconduct, including use of deadly force, and it’s up for a vote in the California Assembly this week.

In addition, the Assembly will vote on AB 931, which updates California police’s deadly use of force standard. Under AB 931, police would only be allowed to use deadly force if there were no reasonable alternatives available and if there was an imminent threat to the officer or another person’s safety.

For decades, our communities, especially communities of color, have demanded accountability for police violence. We have the chance to make a real difference by acting now.


ONE THING YOU CAN DO RIGHT NOW


Call Assemblymembers David Chiu and Phil Ting and tell them to support AB 1421 and AB 931 (call scripts).

Want to go the extra mile? Join the ACLU and sign up to be a rapid responder to mobilize in Sacramento this week when the Assembly votes!

What it takes to win

We Indivisibles across the country have played a critical role in resisting the Trump agenda, stopping TrumpCare, and building power nationwide. Now, with the 2018 midterms on the horizon, we’re going on the offensive. Together, we have the power to not just resist, but to reshape our government.

The Indivisible strategy to win in 2018 relies on each and every one of us to make direct contact with voters. That’s why we’ve been asking you to canvass in Tracy every month, and why we’ve started hosting phone banks. The ultimate way to resist the Trump agenda is to vote these fascists out of office, and we need all hands on deck to make it happen.


ONE THING YOU CAN DO RIGHT NOW


Join our phone bank today! This will be a fun afternoon with fellow Stand Up SF members + Democracy action to flip a Senate seat.

Can’t make it today? Sign up to volunteer to talk to voters on the last few days before the election. Study after study shows that the most effective way to get people to vote is by having conversations with them in the four days before Election Day. Be there when it matters.

Stand up for the Earth today

It’s easy to get overwhelmed by the horrors of this administration. Sometimes I have to pull back from the news, get out of my house, and go for a walk. Then, I remember to be grateful for the beauty that surrounds us here in the Bay Area, the clean water we drink, the clean air we breathe.

And yet all of those things are at risk. The Trump Administration is gutting the Endangered Species Act in a corrupt attempt to expand oil, coal and gas development. We must rise to defend the planet.


ONE THING YOU CAN DO RIGHT NOW


Call all three MoCs and tell them they must protect the Endangered Species Act. You can say, “I am calling on you to vote against any legislation that would undermine the Endangered Species Act. Our survival depends upon these protections against unchecked environmental destruction. It is unacceptable to put fossil fuel polluters’ profits over our collective survival.”

Or use Resistbot to send your message.

Rise for Climate with Stand Up SF members! Mark your calendar for September 8th, when we will march together in the biggest climate march on the west coast. RSVP here, and stay tuned for updates.

Keep calling about Kavanaugh

Our representatives tell us that every phone call matters. When the issues are crucial, we can’t stop with just one call. And with extremist Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh being vetted right now, we have to do everything in our power to stop him. That means: keep calling.

Kavanaugh, who suggested that the Supreme Court might have gotten it wrong when it compelled President Richard Nixon to turn over the Watergate tapes, is shaping up to be the worst possible judge for this country, someone who would let the Trump Administration off the hook for its crimes while punishing women, LGBTQ people, and people of color.

Senator Feinstein is doing a great job holding Kavanaugh’s feet to the fire, but she has not said she will vote against him. We need her to make that promise.


ONE THING YOU CAN DO RIGHT NOW


Call Senator Feinstein, thank her for her work on slowing down the SCOTUS vote, and tell her she must commit to voting against Kavanaugh. Use Resistbot if you prefer.


STAND UP SF TAKES BACK CONGRESS


Next weekend marks 100 days out from the 2018 midterm elections. Our power can flip the House (and maybe the Senate) by electing progressive leaders who represent our values, but only if every one of us does our part.

For the next 100 days, we need to go hard. If you’ve been phone- and text-banking and canvassing already, keep up the good work. If you haven’t begun, it’s time to start! Sign up for Stand Up SF’s very first phone bank on August 5th! Join our members + Democracy action for a fun afternoon to flip a Senate seat.

Too social for you? Sign up to phone bank from home with Indivisible’s calling tools. They’ll give you all the training you need.
