Weekly Call To Action - July 3, 2022
Quote of the Week
“There are no easy answers in this moment. We all wish there was a secret plan to fix this, to make everything right tomorrow. No one has that plan — but what we do have is the compassion and courage to protect each other, the determination to fight back, and the people on our side. We’ll build the power to make things right — step by step.”
–Leah Greenberg, co-founder, Indivisible, 06-24-2022
A New CTA Format:
If the arch-conservative majority SCOTUS full-on assault of constitutional protections has you outraged, Olympia Indivisible has the toolbox ready for you to harness that anger into electoral activism! We know you care–that’s why you signed up with Olympia Indivisible to begin with.
But caring is not enough–all of us need to lean in NOW to build up support for pro-democracy, pro-civil rights candidates up and down the ballot in Washington.
OI will do everything we can to make it easy and fun for you to do your part, starting this week with a new Call to Action format which highlights opportunities for you to engage in electoral work.
Let’s get started! Check out this spankin’ new Candidate Support Calendar, hot off the Google Press. It’s your one-stop shop to engage in everything from post carding to phone banking, writing LTEs, door belling or hoisting a beer with Jessica Bateman and Beth Doglio.
Here’s how you do it: commit to doing just one thing this coming week. Look at the calendar, click on an event to see the details, pick one, and show up.
What if your schedule doesn’t work with this week’s available events? No worries! Sign up to write postcards for Tye Menser. If your handwriting is truly, deeply, awful, sit down at your computer and write a supportive Letter to the Editor (see LTE action below) for one of our candidates.
Whatever it is, do one thing this week. Because when your actions reflect your values, you know you are being constructively true to yourself, and You Will Feel Better.

Endorse Progressive Candidates with Letters to the Editor
Support our progressive candidates by writing Letters to the Editor (LTE.) We can give our candidates free publicity!
The opposition is out in force with their LTE’s. With one in the Olympian asking people to vote Republican because of the “Democrat Extreme Green Climate Agenda”, the border, homeless and crime. The Chronicle has one about voting for Smiley over Murray.
Help our side win by using Indivisible’s advice to format your letter: Endorse Local Progressive Candidates with Letters to the Editor
Action: Use our Candidate Talking Points document created from contributions from the Candidate Interface Team (CIT) or give your own opinion about your candidate.
Submit your letter to one of these sources or your own favorite local paper:
