It’s congressional recess, and local Indivisible groups across the country are doing amazing things to make their voices heard. Here’s the game plan this recess:
This recess is a test: get loud on TrumpCare
For the next six days, Congress is in recess, meaning Senators and Representatives are back home in their states and districts. Behind closed doors, Republicans in the Senate are weighing whether to protect the well-being of their constituents, or give Donald Trump a win on TrumpCare. And what they decide to do is going to greatly depend on what they hear this recess. Make sure you know the facts: check out our new resource, Is your Republican Member of Congress lying to you about Trumpcare?
Many Members of Congress (MoCs) are too chicken to hold a real town hall, but that doesn’t mean you’re powerless. You need to make sure they aren’t cutting a ribbon or kissing a baby without running into a huge wall of people demanding answers on health care. Here are some questions to get you started, and remember: everything you need for recess is on our new central recess resource page: recess.indivisibleguide.com.
Get up to speed on this recess’ policy priorities here.

Need some inspiration? Local groups are standing indivisible across the nation.
In Texas, groups from all over the country showed up at the Texas Capitol to protest the monstrous SB4 and stand in solidarity with immigrants and groups like United We Dream, Color of Change, and Voto Latino.
In Northern Virginia, several Indivisible groups worked together (looking at you, VA-10) with activists from Planned Parenthood and others to protest the PGA championship event at Trump’s golf course. The New York Times took note and we got another look at one of our favorite types of constituent action: kayaktivism!
In Texas, groups from seven cities—Austin, Dallas, Harlingen, Houston, Lubbock, San Antonio, and Tyler—are taking part in the Great Cornyn Stakeout all day for four days to hold (perpetually missing) Senator John Cornyn accountable on an independent commission to investigate the Trump administration’s Russia ties.
Indivisible Illinois and Indivisible groups from across the state came together to launch a billboard campaign to hold four of their Republican House members accountable for their vote on TrumpCare. You can learn more and give at: bit.ly/signsforsellouts.
And groups across the country—from Cincinnati to Kansas City—showed up to tell their Senators to reject TrumpCare and support an independent investigation on the Trump Administration’s ties to Russia.
