Current Focus

Electoral:

Santa Cruz Indivisible (SCI) is focused on the 2019 and 2020 elections. 

2019:  There are two seats in the Virginia State Legislature that we are focusing on.  We only need one more state to ratify the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA) allowing us to pass the amendment federally.  We are working as a Sister District affiliate group to support candidates Debra Rodman and Josh Cole.  

To flip these seats, we need to reach many voters through phone and text banking, writing postcards to voters, and registering people to vote. Our democracy is and risk and we must RESTORE it, we have to do this together!  To join this effort, please email Amanda@santacruzindivisible.org

2020:  Primarly, we want to elect a Democratic President!  Once we have a candidate, we will have many opportunities to be involved.

Also, we only need to flip 3 senate seats (and elect a democratic president) to take back control of the Senate and DITCH MITCH!


Advocacy:

At all times, we must hold our elected officials accountable and let them know what we think!  Our outreach to our elected officials is everything from making calls from your kitchen counter to getting together with the community in small or large groups to express our point of view.

We will continue to arm our Member Activists with daily actions put together by our Issue Teams who are passionate about a particular subject area.  The second Tuesday of every month we also host Wine and Signs where people can gather together to community build and write to MoCs, giving both Pats (thank you) and Prods (get it done!) (LINKS).  We have partnered with many other groups in the community for marches and rallies such as the Women’s March, MLK March, The Science March, and Families Belong Together Rally.

Civic Engagement:

We believe in empowering and educating its members and the community. 


We succeed because of YOU.

This is where YOU come in. Santa Cruz Indivisible runs on 100% volunteer power and we need the power of the community to continue preserve our democracy.  We need dedicated, creative, and engaged volunteers to help us be successful in 2020 and beyond. We need enthused Member Activists to be constant advocates for progressive policies and the rights of our citizens.  The work we do is incredibly important and we want you to join us.
