We’re thrilled that our friend Robert Reich joined us for a series of videos on Indivisible Town Hall Tips—in this newest video, he’ll go over the top five issues we suggest discussing with your MoC during town hall events this recess.
Want more policy details?
We’ve created a backgrounder on each of the five policy priorities, including suggested questions on each topic to ask at your local town hall. Want to skip straight to the questions? Check out the whole list here
Ready to take on Donald Trump’s tax return secrecy?
We know that many of you will be marching with our friends at Tax March
on April 15
to demand Trump’s tax returns, and we’re proud that Indivisible is a part of this effort. Remember to also call your MoCs to demand Trump’s returns: check out our video on what to ask when you call.
What if your MoC is trying to keep you from asking the tough questions by setting up a Sham Town Hall? Robert Reich is here for you again: check out these tips on how to call out MoCs’ tactics for suppressing your involvement in their public events and town halls.
Just want all of your recess materials in one place?
All of the resources you need to hold your MoCs accountable this recess, including planning guides, policy explainers, and videos are available in the Recess Toolkit.
Join us Thursday for another Facebook Live Q&A
Last week, we held our first Facebook Live event to take your questions on recess, and we’ve decided to do it again this week! Join us at 9 p.m. ET on Thursday, April 13
. You can submit questions about recess, Congress, and the Tax March in advance to firstname.lastname@example.org
. Be sure to sign up:
Not on Facebook? No problem! On Thursday, we’ll be sending a streaming link to everyone who RSVPs, just in case you would rather watch the stream on our site. That link will also contain dial-in information for attendees who want to listen in via phone.
Miss last week’s event? You can catch up here
and watch @ezralevin and @AngelRafPadilla answer more recess questions.
Last but not least: check out Indivisible’s brand new website
If you like these resources, consider chipping in a few bucks
Look at everything we’ve produced! The new website, videos, recess toolkits, scripts, and more—how great is this stuff? We honestly love producing it. We love being part of this movement and supporting the leadership of folks on the ground. Empowering you to kick recess’ butt is what we’re all about.
But this stuff takes a lot of time and energy, and yes—moolah. As of the writing of this sentence, we’ve had 17,803 online donations from every state in the country, averaging less than $50. This is coming from people like you—people from all over who believe in and contribute to the Indivisible movement. This support is how we helped you defeat TrumpCare, and it’s how we’ll continue the fight to defend American democracy from this unstable president.
And, look, money is great and all—but it’s not everything. We’re always grateful for donations, but fundamentally it’s the time, talent, and energy you’ve invested that’s made the Indivisible movement real. This recess, there’s a lot of work to do, but we’re confident we can get it done. Keep standing indivisible, and we will win.
