It has been 2 years since I started the downtown chapter on a whim - armed only with a facebook group link and few slips of printer paper handed out at the airport protests. I could never have imagined that together, we would accomplish so much in only 24ish months.
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.

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.
