❤️ WE HAVE A VALENTINE'S MESSAGE ❤️ 
FOR SENATORS DURBIN AND DUCKWORTH

The Democrats now control the House, Senate, and Presidency, so it's time to get to work! We are sending a message to our Illinois Senators Durbin and Duckworth to let them know that Indivisibles and members of progressive groups all across our state support the passing of voting rights legislation (including HR 1 and HR 4) and DC Statehood by whatever means are needed, even if it means eliminating the filibuster.

The Senators need to hear from YOU, so send them a Valentine through Indivisible Chicago with a message asking them to defend our democracy and pass legislation supporting voting rights, even if it means abolishing the filibuster.

Indivisible Chicago will collect names and addresses through this form, print valentines with each person's name, address (to prove you are a constituent), and personal message, and hand deliver to our Senators. Send your valentine for democracy today!

Make sure you vote in the Evanston Municipal Primary Election! Voting early or by mail are both great choices, especially during the winter and because of the pandemic.

The filibuster has got to go. It's undemocratic: it empowers the minority to block the will of voters and of the American public, and it will be used by Republicans to block every single progressive priority: As long as the filibuster remains in place, McConnell will use it to block democracy reforms  and any other progressive priority.

Contact your Senators and tell them to act now to eliminate the filibuster. Talking points are available here.  Contact information for your representatives is available on our website here. 
Take Action to Eliminate the Filibuster!

The victory isn't the election, it's the legislation.

Indivisible Evanston Mission Statement

  • To continue to resist the ongoing threat of Trumpism to our democracy.
  • To ensure Democrats take advantage of their control of the three branches of the federal government to make meaningful, progressive change in our country.
  • To increase the number of progressive legislators in Congress.

We do not expect our members or our allies to agree on all issues, but we invite those who agree progressive change is needed to work together on issues of common concern. We seek to be as inclusive and diverse as possible, and we are committed to non-violence in all our actions.
