Newsletter: December 13, 2017

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.

Calls to Action

Encourage friends and family in Maine to contact Senator Collins to resist the Tax Plan

These are troubling times – so please take a minute now to make a positive statement. Thanks.

Deborah Santoro is an artist who runs a contemporary art gallery. She is a wife and mother of three who loves to walk in the woods and practice yoga. Deborah was not politically active before the Women’s March of 2017 and so some of the mess we find ourselves in is her fault. She is doing her best to vindicate that by helping to organize an Indivisible group in her home town with a group of like minded people. #resist
