Many thanks to the approximately 80 members of Indivisible 49 who joined together at our first Member Meeting on Sunday, June 11, 2017.
Our theme was "Finding your Activism." We updated the attendees on what's going on in Indivisible 49 and the positive results of our activism. After neighborhood huddles, we split up into break-out sessions designed to up our activism game, learning from the best. In break-out sessions, members learned:
- Voter Engagement: How to engage voters, including canvassing our neighborhoods to make sure neighbors are aware of how Darrell Issa has voted on issues that are important to each of us, and to learn their concerns. Handout
- Social Media Beyond Facebook: How to use Twitter effectively and how to become more active on that platform. Handout
- Write Back @ You: How to spread our message by writing effective letters to the editors of our local newspapers and news organizations. Handout
- Who's Your Buddy: How to meet others in our neighborhoods to share our activism and how we can up our game from attending rallies and making calls, to becoming leaders.
Here's the full agenda.
If you attended, please take our short survey to get feedback on how ways we can do even better at our next meeting, which will likely be in September.
Thanks to everyone who attended, and especially those who stepped up to help organize the meeting.
