A Blue Print for Democracy After Trump
And a couple of publications that have weathered the test of time.
Democarcy in America Alexis de Tocqueville
From America's call for a free press to its embrace of the capitalist system, Democracy in America—first published in 1835—enlightens, entertains, and endures as a brilliant study of our national government and character.
Federalist Papers Alexander Hamilton, John Jay, James Madison
Perhaps the most essential distillation of the Founders' vision of America, The Federalist Papers consist of a series of 85 essays in favor of the ratification of the U.S. Constitution. Attributed to Alexander Hamilton, John Jay, and James Madison, the essays tackle an array of topics that are just as relevant today as they were more than 200 years ago, including human rights, republican governance, the proper scope and jurisdiction of a federal government, and much more.

Phone Banking from National Indivisible
We haven’t even closed the books on 2019, and Indivisibles are already getting a jump start on some of the most important congressional races of 2020. Our team is using the Open Virtual Phone Bank (aka OpenVPB) tool to make phone calls to voters and automatically record their responses for local groups to use in the future. But we need more volunteers to help make calls and reach as many voters as we can.
Use the links below to access our OpenVPB -- once you sign in, you’ll have access to a script with everything you need to make effective calls!
