San Diego Indivisible Downtown is pleased to announce the publication of our Voter Guide for the 2018 Midterm Elections. This guide was…
At the September 30th meeting, we will present a list of proposed races that we would like to consider for endorsement. We will explain the process of how we selected that list, in the context of the values we constructed as a chapter over the past year.
We will clarify how an endorsement from SDID will translate into action... and how YOU will be involved in that process.
Visit www.flip-the-49th.org/events to find more details and RSVP. Flip depends on hardworking volunteers like you! We knock on doors because we want to make a difference this election!
Our team of San Diego Indivisible Downtown volunteers are proud to publish our 2018 Primary Election Voter Guide for San Diego County.
Voting in mid-term primaries can be confusing and even intimidating for many people. Our guide provides short summaries of the key races and candidates, as well as a handy worksheet you can fill in and bring with you to the ballot box.
Our last two monthly meetings took the form of panel discussions on the the following topics:
- Money in Politics / Gerrymandering
- Healthcare Reform
We recorded these lively discussions and you can watch the full videos over on our Resources page.
Don't miss our next panel discussion taking place in April on the topic of Economic Justice. More info here
The Member Recruitment and Engagement team has confirmed participation at four recruitment events in the month of February. We are partnering with Get Out the Vote to talk to people about Indivisible and get them excited to make positive change in our community.
The Voter Registration team has been pretty busy and things are getting busier! We have been working on building a group of trained volunteers to staff an increasing number of voter registration events. In addition to that, a number of people have stepped up and offered to help run these events. These event managers allow us to increase our capacity, and we are taking advantage of that. We also have a person now dedicated to event planning, selection and coordination. A huge help!
The Outreach team has continued working hard to establish relationships with like-minded local groups. Multiple members of SDID attended a collaborative ACLU-Indivisible meeting, where representatives from numerous local Indivisible chapters met with the leadership of ACLU to discuss a variety of common objectives, including voter registration and progressive policies.
I used to teach American history and government to high school kids. And I’m old enough to remember Hitler. I understand how our democracy is supposed to work with three separate, but equal powers of government. I am appalled that the Republican Congress is so complicit in the President's attempt to take power.
Thanks to all who came out to Solana Beach for canvassing to Flip the 49th on January 6! These efforts contributed to the decision by Darryl Issa to not seek re-election. This is a huge win for Indivisible and partner community groups. Now we have a crowded field of Democrats and at least two Republicans in the 49th District — which means it’s more important than ever to canvass and make sure a progressive candidate is on the primary and midterm ballots!
How to help:
Our next canvassing event will be in Encinitas on Feb. 10 from 11 am until 2 pm at Cottonwood Creek Park, 95 N. Vulcan Ave. Sign up here: http://bit.ly/2DO57fe
There will be canvassing efforts every month leading up to the primary vote and continuing until midterms (June 5, 2018). Sign up to receive information on future volunteer opportunities: http://bit.ly/2nlERTu
The Voter Registration team, lead by Larry McNamara has been working hard building a community of volunteers who are trained to register voters. Larry’s team has hosted a booth at several events in the past few weeks, including the OB Farmers Market on Jan. 10, City Heights Farmers Market on Jan. 13, Hillcrest Farmers Market on Jan. 14 an the Women's March on Jan. 20. The team is looking forward to hosting more voter registration classes in the coming weeks (including one for our neighbors in Escondido) and a registration booth at Southwest College on Feb. 8.
