Indivisible Chicago Postcard Writing League

You've heard of a bowling league, right? Well, we don't want to leave all the fun to those bowling athletes. Pick a team and write postcards together. Write to win prizes and, probably more importantly, help elect people who share your values! We will count up postcards for each team and keep the standings.

We will be writing postcards to voters who share our values and voted in 2016, but did not vote in 2014. We are going to turn them out for the midterms! We will be writing postcards to Sean Casten's district (IL-6) and Lauren Underwood's (IL-14) to start, and we will expand to other districts as interest dictates.

Bar Louie Printers Row, West Polk (RSVP here)

Swing Left - Last Weekend

It's time to transform our government!

We've marched. We've rallied. Now we're ready to give it everything we've got, on the last weekend before the midterm elections.

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 (Saturday, November 3rd–Tuesday, November 6th).

Each of us has the power to make a big difference in a key race by talking to voters. Don't just vote this year—volunteer! Will you be there when it matters?

Rise for Climate, Jobs and Justice: Send Off

Rise for Climate, Jobs and Justice: Send Off

Join us for a press conference at 9:30am on Saturday, September 8th at the Federal Plaza to kick off the People's Climate March in Elmwood, Illinois. 

After the press conference at Federal Plaza, we'll be marching to the LaSalle Street Station at 414 S. LaSalle Street to depart at 10:40 for the People's Climate March in Elmwood. Join us! 

Speakers to be determined. 


---
Hundreds of Illinoisans committed to advancing environmental, economic, racial, and immigrant justice will come together on September 8 in Elwood, Illinois as part of a global day of action spearheaded by the People’s Climate Movement.

The People’s Climate Movement is asking everyone to “Rise for Climate, Jobs and Justice.” Demonstrators want to show our leaders and elected officials to commit to real solutions to the climate crisis. 

The global day of action comes four days before the start of the Global Climate Action Summit in San Francisco and two months before the midterm elections.

No more stalling, no more delays: it’s time for a fast and fair transition to 100% renewable energy for all.

We chose to demonstrate in Elwood this year because the city is home to the nation’s third-largest container port. This industrial area is a key source of pollution in the region. Elwood is located in Will County, which has more than 300 warehouses, including those operated by notorious polluters Amazon and Walmart, both of which have received massive tax breaks from our local governments. Most warehouse jobs in the area are non-union, pay poverty wages and are filled by temp workers, the majority of whom are people of color and immigrants.

Real climate leadership rises from below. It means power in the hands of people not corporations. It means economic opportunity for workers and justice and dignity for frontline communities that are the hardest hit by the impacts of the fossil fuel industry and a warming world.

On September 8, we’re demanding that our local leaders commit to building a fossil free world that puts people and justice before profits.

We are at a crossroads. By acting together, we can end the era of fossil fuels and save the climate we all depend on.

An evening with JB Pritzker, Juliana Stratton & Delia Ramirez

On August 30, Indivisible Chicago will be hosting an event with JB Pritzker, Juliana Stratton, Delia Ramirez and other special guests. We need YOU there. This will be a chance to show the strength of our grassroots movement—the force that will determine this election and continue to push progressive change afterward—and to hear from the Democratic nominee and gubernatorial frontrunner about the issues we care about the most.

How can we make sure Illinois finally passes a progressive income tax? How can we turn our top priorities into real progress? How do we build an Illinois that works for everyone—not just the powerful and not just the machine?

Ultimately, this election is about more than one person or one candidate; it’s about us, the grassroots. And it’s only through our continued engagement that we will not just win in November, but turn a progressive agenda into the future of Illinois. 

ASL Interpreters will be provided. The venue is wheelchair accessible. To request any other accessibility accommodations, please contact Jessica Droeger at jessica@indivisiblechicago.com.

When: Thursday, August 30 from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
Where: First United Methodist Church (77 West Washington Street)

Safe Zones Rally

Why hasn't Governor Rauner signed the Immigration Safe Zones Act (SB35) into law? Why doesn't he sign a bill that would limit ICE's access to schools, libraries, courthouses and hospitals? If Gov. Rauner cares about keeping our communities safe, he would support legislation that moves towards making Illinois a truly welcoming state for all immigrants.

Gov. Rauner needs to take action and support immigrant communities NOW! Time is running out for him to sign the Safe Zones Act (SB 35), No Registry Bill (SB 3488), and the VOICES Act (SB 34). Join us to send a loud and clear message that we need Gov. Rauner to stand with us.

When: Thursday, August 22 from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m.
Where: at Metropolitan Correctional Center (71 W Van Buren St.)
