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.

Merkley Virtual Town Hall at 12:30 pm

Don't forget to join Senator Jeff Merkley's virtual Town Hall for Wasco County today at 12:30 pm. I'm sure there will be a lot to talk about, including the bill he is co-sponsoring that prevents the federal government from sending federal law enforcement to states unless they are requested by the state. You need to register to attend, and you can do so by sending an email to and put WASCO in the subject line. To join by telephone, call 415-527-5035 and use the access code 199 435 8051 when prompted.
