Come kick back and join Indivisible at Cage Brewing, Friday, February 9th, 2018, 6pm-9pm. We'll celebrate some of the wins we've had resisting Trump and the like's worst agendas, and help you get involved with the progress you care about most. Look for the blue Indivisible shirts.
The vote on one of the top two NRA priority bills is this week. HR 3668 would make it easier for criminals to get silencers for their weapons. Concert-goers in Vegas were able to run and hide because they HEARD SHOTS. Text SILENCERS to 644-33, and tell your representatives how you feel about this idea. Your call does not need to be long - Congressional staff are going to tally you as a simple For/Against for the bill. It's titled HR 3668, the SHARE Act - "Sportsmen Heritage and Recreational Enhancement Act." Link to Bill, and its progress in Congress to date. Background on the domestic terror incident in Vegas, where 58 were killed, 515 injured.
We're meeting with Charlie Crist's staff to discuss his Yes vote on HR 3004 "Kate's Law," a law that will quadruple how long arrested undocumented immigrants spend in prison from 15 months to 5 years - bringing with it all the problems and costs of mass incarceration. There's a strategy call today at 6 if you'd like to hear more about the plan. The meeting is next week. Contact us for info about how to join in. The ACLU will be speaking so if you're nervous about what to say and just want to show your support, that's OK. Background on Kate's Law, from when it was first proposed in 2015. Kate's Law passed the House June 29th 2017. It has not been scheduled in the Senate. Who voted.
UPDATE: We started planning for our vigil on short notice, and we got such a great response from the community! Now that the ‘Vote to Proceed’ on Tuesday has been postponed, we want to use this opportunity to better plan this event, so it is postponed for now. We will be back with more details shortly. In the meantime, keep making those calls to Sen. Rubio! Trumpcare in any form is an assault on human dignity. Indivisible FL-13 invites you to join together in a single voice on July 18 to denounce this legislation and publicly call upon our Florida senators to oppose this bill. Sen. Bill Nelson is opposed - so please thank him - but Senator Rubio has no plans of stopping Trumpcare. Join in and speak…

On June 8th, Rubio for Senate sent out an email, signed by Senator Rubio, in which he begins by saying he needs "the advice and support of grassroots activists like you." Sounds great, right? Not so much. He goes on to lump all "liberal democrats" in to one obstructionist group that are an embarrassment to the country. Note, this email was sent to a registered democrat. "The liberal Democrats have used every stalling tactic and method of delay they can find to slow confirmation of administration appointees and try to block passage of reform legislation. Their bitter obstructionism is an embarrassment to the institution of the U.S. Senate and an insult to the American people. The Democrats have put partisanship before the best interests of the country on issue, after issue, after…
