Indivisible | Monday Sept 25th

September 20, 2017

Dear Indivisible Group Leaders,

We’ve emailed you a lot this week (a LOT) so we’ll keep this one short.

This Monday, September 25th, we’re calling for a national day of action to #KillTheBill once and for all.

All week, you’ve put pressure on key Republican senators through targeted phone calls, district office visits, calls to constituents in target states using our new tool, and loud, sustained constituent pressure. Now it’s time to ramp it up even more.

On Monday, Republicans are holding a hearing in the Senate Finance Committee that’s designed to provide a fictional “process” as a fig leaf to win Republican (particularly McCain’s) votes. To call out this sham process and put more pressure on Senators in these final days, we’re asking you to make one more visit on Monday, September 25th. Will you stand in solidarity with other Indivisible groups across the country and host a sit-in at your senator’s district office?

Your relentless (and loud!) constituent pressure stopped this bill in July and we know you can do it again. Check out our easy-to-use website to register a #KillTheBill sit-in at your senator’s nearest district office on Monday, September 25th.

For months, you’ve shown up at your congressional offices to demand your elected officials vote “no” on any and every repeal bill the Republicans have brought forth. In July, Indivisibles in 40 states staged actions on our first national day of action. Now, with the clock running out on TrumpCare, it’s time to show up once again and use our constituent pressure together and take control of the narrative.

Here’s what you can do:

  1. Register your event. Visit our website, enter your event information, and description. We’ll drive people to your events from our partner organizations, like Ultraviolet and MoveOn, but we can only do that if you register them!
  2. Show your power. At your event, make. some. noise! Once your event is registered, we’ll send you a toolkit to help you organize the event with sample chants, graphics, and tips on how to make an impact on your Senator.
  3. We’ll do the rest! On Friday, we’ll reach out to all Indivisible supporters in your area and send them a link to attend your event (register your event ASAP to be included!). And if you use the hashtag #KillTheBill on Twitter or tag Indivisible Guide on Facebook, we’ll do our best to share as much content as we can from your actions across the country.

Register your #KillTheBill event for Monday, September 25th now.

Let’s #KillTheBill.

In solidarity,
The Indivisible Team
