Emergency Request

We are just learning that Ruth Bader Ginsburg has passed away. This tragedy is two-fold.
We have lost a real hero. And we face the terrible prospect that Trump, aided by hypocrite McConnell, will try to appoint a conservative justice in the days before the election. Indivisible is asking us all to call our senators immediately and ask them to insist that there is no Supreme Court nomination or hearings until after the inauguration in January 2021. For more details and a short script, click "Read more."

Reminder - Post Office Rally Today at 11am

Join others from throughout the Gorge to rally in support of the Post Office today at 11 am in front of The Dalles Post Office. This is part of a nationwide event with more than 800 rallies planned at local post offices across the country. We'll have sign-making materials and voter-registration info. Let's raise our voices to Save The Post Office and protect our elections from the Cheater-in-Chief.

Save Our Postal Service Rally

Join fellow Indivisibles from around the Gorge at our Post Office in The Dalles (101 W 2nd St) this Saturday, August 22, at 11 am for a rally in support of our local postal workers, and to protest against Trump's efforts to dismantle the USPS and make voting by mail more difficult in the midst of a pandemic. Wear a mask, bring a sign, and plan to keep socially distant from others. We'll have a sign-making table set up by 10:45 if you need materials for a sign. Please click "Read more" to learn how else you can help save our Post Office.

Save Our Postal Service

POPPERS! Our election security depends on the US MAIL and as you know, Trump is doing everything he can to win the election, including making it harder for us to receive and return ballots by mail. Indivisible is asking us all to email and/or call our Members of Congress today or asap. Click Read More for a sample phone and email script and the phone numbers and addresses for Senator Merkley, Senator Wyden, and Representative Walden. Even though our two senators are in favor of helping the USPS, our calls and our emails give them the data they need to make a stronger argument.
