02/12/18 Weekly Call to Action

Have you found the race(s) that you’ll be supporting for the midterms? We will need people canvassing, texting, calling, and knocking on doors in order to win BIG in 9 months. Indivisible will be focusing on 3 particular races as far as regular calls to action: US Congressional District 6 (Mike Coffman’s seat), State Senate District 16 (Tim Neville’s seat - Golden-area), and State Senate District 24 (Beth Humenik’s seat - Thornton-area)

For us in the Boulder area, Tim Neville's SD 16 sits next to us, in Golden and nearby.  We have the chance to help get a progressive leader in that seat, instead of a man who wants to make abortion a class 1 felony.  Join both Colorado Votes and Indivisible Colorado SD-16 to stay plugged in.
