Our 2018 Primary Endorsements

When Indivisible Austin was founded in December 2016, we were purely a resistance movement. The reality of Donald J. Trump as our president forced us into action, and the Indivisible Guide showed us the way. Now, a little more than a year later, the energy of the resistance movement is clearly shif

None of us are free until all of us are free: please join us tomorrow at noon at T. Don Hutto Residential Center as we demand justice for Laura Monterrosa. Remember what our community can do, what Austin did last night for its workers? Let's do it again, for women victimized in ICE custody. Please follow Grassroots Leadership for updates.

We’re out at Austin City Hall rallying for paid sick days before Austin City Council takes up Austin’s proposed paid sick days ordinance for a vote TONIGHT! C’mon down y’all.

Remember the Indivisible Guide. We don’t have NRA 💰, but we know where they work.
(1) Gather some constituents in your congressional district - perhaps someone touched by gun violence, a neighbor who owns guns and takes hours of safety classes who wishes background checks were more thorough, your kid who can talk to how the disaster drill at school goes, etc. Nearly everyone has an experience that is connected to these issues.
(2) Email your 3 members of Congress, 2 senator...s and 1 rep. and ask for a meeting.
(3) Go and share your personal stories.
(4) Post about it. Tell us! Follow up with their staff.
(5) Vote accordingly this March and November.

Today we joined the Work Strong Austin coalition and dozens of progressive allies at City Hall in support of the proposed earned sick days ordinance. More than 220,000 Austin workers currently get no paid sick time, and passage of this ordinance means workers will be able to take a day off to get well, or to take care of sick family members without risking job loss. Council will vote Thursday night.

Work Strong Austin was live — at Austin City Hall.

Tune in now for a press conference on Austin’s proposed paid sick days ordinance, which is up for a vote at Austin City Council on February 15!

A strong economy is built on strong families, and earned paid sick time is good for parents and kids. But a national organization with ties to the Koch Brothers has other ideas, and is in Austin to prevent 223,000 men and women from gaining access to this basic human right. #atx
