2020 Election Reflection

Indivisibles, we did it!!  We now have a majority in the House and the Senate, and the White House!  Because of our unprecedented success, we have developed a new set of objectives for 2021-2022:

The defeat of Trump and the change in the political balance in Washington, DC is the result of efforts by Indivisible Santa Barbara members in coordination with other Indivisible chapters nationwide and progressive voters everywhere. Our efforts to resist the conservative Republican agenda remain ongoing.

Our priorities include advancing national democratic reforms, improving health care access, addressing global climate change, opposing racial injustice, promoting socio-economic equality, protecting our environment, supporting immigration reform and rebuilding our deteriorating infrastructure.

We commit to elect and empower representatives who will propose and enact legislation that safeguards our democracy and addresses our priorities.

 

Indivisible Santa Barbara is part of a national movement – indivisible.org. Groups exist in every state, and in almost every city.  (Not from Santa Barbara? Find your group here.) See our Indivisible Santa Barbara guiding principles here.

 


 

Guiding Principles

In California, we are in a unique position to embolden not only our Members of Congress, but also our California state legislators, who have declared California’s intent to lead the charge against harmful federal policies. Our leaders need to hear our voices: our calls, letters, emails, personal stories, and in-person meetings count. These actions directly strengthen our Elected Representatives in Congress.  This group is dedicated to providing  the most effective daily and weekly actions possible, and we encourage our members to make them part of their daily routine.

We are growing daily and need YOU to become an organizer, spearhead a committee, make calls, write letters, blog, attend meetings, and more.

  1. We are an inclusive community.
  2. We are Indivisible. We do not propose policy, but are united in our pursuit to oppose harmful legislation.
    • We have a zero-tolerance policy toward in-fighting. As long as Liberals, Progressives, Democrats, and Moderates engage in a circular firing squad, we give our power to the minority–Extreme Conservatives win.
  3. We believe that citizens must act where we live, interacting with our own Members of Congress. We strive to take regular action, daily, weekly, monthly.
  4. We are patriotic Americans.
  5. We believe in peaceful actions, we do not condone violence.
