We are imagining the sighs of relief that were exhaled when you learned of the news of the Alabama victory for Senator Doug Jones. Make no mistake: this is a victory shared by many people (including some in our own state) who rolled up their sleeves and/or opened their wallets and made the “impossible” happen. And it is by no means the end of our Indivisible journey, as you probably know when you think about the current “tax reform” bill that appears to be close to passing, despite its overt and absolutely unapologetic crippling of the poor and those who struggle day to day.
To that end, if you too are outraged, please take a minute and think about any friend or relative or former neighbor who might live in Maine (or any one of the states where the senators are supporting passage of this bill) and reach out to them to see if they have contacted their members of Congress to express their opinions. Personal contact is the most effective form of social activism, so please raise your voice and encourage others to do the same. One of our members, John Goodale, has shared his thoughts and a sample script below.
Thank you for considering!

P.S. Senator Susan Collins has shown she can vote independently, so let her hear from your Maine friends and/or family.
