What are the Indivisible Eugene Organizer’s up to this week?
- We joined several Indivisible groups from around the nation to sign a letter which was delivered to Senators Corker and Cardin by Montgomery’s Indivisible chapter. They were able to get over 10,000 signatures! This letter asks the Senators on the Foreign Relations Committee, like Merkley, to establish an independent commission to examine ties between the Trump campaign and Russian intelligence operators.
- On March 24th we attended a rally hosted by North Douglas County Indivisible in Elkton Oregon. The PR team live streamed part of the event. There were over 30 people in attendance.
- On March 25th we met with Senator Jeff Merkley at his Town Hall in Roseburg. The PR Team live streamed during the march that Roseburg Indivisible hosted as well as during the town hall. He even gave a shout out at the end to the Eugene Indivisible members watching the live stream in pt. 2 at the 46:19 time stamp. Afterward, we met with Indivisible Roseburg for lunch and discussed ways to support each other as we move forward in District 4.
- On March 28th we celebrated the immense nationwide effort to oppose the repeal of the ACA! We had cookies and enjoyed the Resist Trump Tuesday at the US Federal District Court Building.
- The Membership Support Team/ Diversity Team recruited several new members which we are getting oriented now. We still need lots of people with a range of interests and skills!

We value inclusion and fairness, and resist negative rhetoric.We get our message to our Members of Congress through our presence at Town Hall meetings, rallies at their offices and member involvement including targeted phone calls and postcards. We are non-violent and lawful in our actions.
