Let’s Start Working Now to Beat Trump in 2020
4455 N Lincoln Ave., Chicago, IL
The US House of Representatives has been able to stand up to and put a check on Trump because of the work you and countless others across the country did in 2018 to flip Congress. We all learned a lot in 2018 about how to effectively activate voters for change. We need your insights at the November 5th meeting to figure out how to motivate our Northside Chicago neighbors to support progressive election efforts outside of the city in 2020, especially in Wisconsin and Michigan, in order to win the presidency, take a majority in the US Senate, and preserve a majority in the US House.
Please confirm your attendance by October 30 by sending a quick email to Kevin Limbeck (email@example.com), and bring a friend to the meeting to help build our capacity to activate voters!
This event’s address is private. Please RSVP Madeline@betsydirksenlondrigan.com for event details.
Betsy is running for Congress to put the middle-class first, and to end a system that has served career politicians and their special interest donors instead of working families in Illinois. In Congress, she will oppose big tax giveaways to massive corporations and the wealthy that blow up our deficit. Betsy understands that labor unions help build Illinois’ middle class and will stand up for their right to bargain for fair wages, safe working conditions, and a secure retirement. And, she will fight any attempt to cut the Social Security and Medicare benefits that our seniors have earned.
Our friends at Indivisible Michigan have requested urgent help with a phone bank for a city council election in the city of Troy, Michigan. A progressive female reformer is going up against an entrenched Tea Party incumbent in the Nov. 5 election and needs our help calling voters who have just received their absentee ballots. It’s also an opportunity to hone our quick-response capabilities to support progressive candidates in one of the most important states on next year’s electoral map. Come join us in reaching these voters and activating the progressive community as the 2020 election season kicks into gear!
We'll be at the 47th Ward Democrats office at 2234 W Irving Park Rd. Please bring your laptop and cell phone. RSVP HERE

Reaching Beyond Chicago to Win Big in 2020!
First hour of the meeting we will discuss how to get our Northside Chicago neighbors to support progressive election efforts outside of the city, especially in Wisconsin and Michigan.
At 3pm, interested members of all Chicago Indivisible chapters are invited to meet Jon Hoadley, Democratic candidate for Michigan’s 6th Congressional District seat, currently held by 17 - term Republican incumbent Fred Upton. This is a very competitive race, only 70 miles from Chicago. Tump won MIchigan by just 10,000 votes. Help turn this around.

Mitch McConnell is trying to prevent our nation from taking action on Election Security.
But, due to popular outcry, we have a chance to win $600 million to secure our elections by the Congressional funding deadline at the end of September.
The House has already passed a bill calling this funding for our top election security needs, so our target is McConnell and the Senate.
Join people across the country who are gathering outside their local U.S. Senator’s office to demand the Senate allocates funding to secure out elections.

Please join us to hear from a team from the Institute for Nonviolence Chicago as they describe the important work they are doing collaboratively to reduce gun violence. Their services are hyper-locally focused in Austin, West Garfield Park and Back of the Yards, where they engage with those at highest risk of being involved in gun violence and the communities in which they live to prevent and intervene in violence. Nonviolence Chicago provides outreach and mediation; victim support and advocacy; case management; reentry case management; community organizing and Nonviolence training to build the Beloved Community. As partners in several collaborations across the city to decrease gun violence, including Communities Partnering 4 Peace (CP4P), READI, and the Rapid Reduction initiative between Chicago CRED and CP4P, the Institute for Nonviolence Chicago is uniquely situated as a community-based organization and a big picture leader in this architecture.
