Actions for Week of November 6

Monday, Nov. 6
Rally for Democracy
Outside the offices of Senators Schumer and Gillibrand
780 3rd Ave., between 48th and 49th Streets
5 p.m. - 6 p.m.

"What does Democracy mean to YOU? A free press? Voting rights? Reproductive rights? Fair districting? Town Halls? A livable planet? A fair tax reform? Justice for All?" The Indivisible chapters sponsoring the rally will have many signs for you to choose from.

Tuesday, Nov. 7

It's Election Day.  Go to your polling place and vote. Encourage your neighbors to do the same. With the federal government in upheaval, local politics are more important than ever. It's because of certain local politicians that New York State has failed to pass progressive legislation that would protect women's rights, immigrants, the environment, etc., from the Trump regime. Don't be complacent. Review the Voter's Guide here.

Wednesday, Nov. 8 - TWO ACTIONS
1. Call Relay for Easier Voting
The day after the election, take part in a call relay to remind our senators that it's too difficult for many people to vote in this country. We will ask them to co-sponsor the Automatic Voter Registration Act. Sign up for a time to call here; the idea is to have their office phones ringing all day. The document includes phone numbers and a script.

2. Do or Die: Protest at Trump Tower
Trump Tower
725 5th Ave.
6 p.m. - 11:59 p.m.

On the anniversary of the election, let's remind Trump that he's not our president.

Thursday, Nov. 9
Indivisible UES Monthly Meeting
Unitarian Church of All Souls
80th and Lexington
Basement Gallery
7:30 p.m. - 9 p.m.

Join us for our monthly meeting to get an update on our latest communications with Senator Gillibrand, among other topics. Bring a friend! All are welcome.

Friday, Nov. 10
Support The Trace and Save Our Streets
The Trace is an independent, nonpartisan, nonprofit journalism startup dedicated to shining a light on America’s gun violence crisis. You can donate any amount to help the effort.

One important insight from The Trace is this: "The national conversation on gun violence mostly misses the big picture. Mass shootings drive headlines and political responses, but they comprise only two percent of gun deaths. Far more people are killed with handguns than assault-style rifles, while everyday gun violence hits marginalized populations the hardest. Nearly half of gun homicide victims are young black men."

Accordingly, consider a donation to Save Our Streets in Brooklyn. The S.O.S. Brooklyn staff prevent gun violence from occurring in two target areas within the neighborhoods of Crown Heights and Bedford-Stuyvesant by mediating conflicts that may end in gun violence and acting as peer counselors to the people who are at risk of perpetrating or being victimized by violence.
