From Indivisible, August 21, 2017

Dear Indivisibles,

After the events of the past several days, in Charlottesville, Boston, and elsewhere, our responsibility to root out the evils of white supremacy has a renewed urgency. As Indivisibles, we must hold our elected officials accountable in fighting white supremacy in all its forms -- from Nazi protests to Confederate statues to white supremacist policies. We must also practice good allyship and act in support of the racial justice groups who lead this movement.

We must fight white supremacy head-on.  The openly violent acts motivated by racism and nationalism in Charlottesville were another example of the threat we face from white supremacist groups and their hateful ideology. We must confront white supremacy in all its sinister forms, and we’ve got ways to take action this weekend. You can also take a look at our new toolkit on how to stand indivisible against white supremacy on your home turf.

Demand your MoCs actually fight white supremacy.Congress is still out over August recess. But just because they’re out on vacation doesn’t mean they can sit on the sidelines while our nation faces a critical moment of truth. Did they condemn Donald Trump’s shameful comments in support of Nazis? Have they called for hearings into white supremacy? Have they demanded that Donald Trump fire ALL of the white nationalists that advise him in the White House? Have they committed to removing confederate statues from the halls of Congress? There should be no doubt where they stand. We have a new resource with 4 concrete congressional asks you can make to ensure your MoCs are standing against hate.

Thank you for standing up for DACAmented youth. On DACA’s anniversary, Indivisible Little Rock and Central Arkansas accompanied a local advocate to a meeting at the Arkansas Attorney General’s office, where she read letters from DACAmented Arkansans. Indivisible Manteca stood tall outside Rep. Jeff Denham’s office. Indivisible Gainesville published a sharp op-ed about their MoC’s immigration record and Indivisible groups from Delaware helped get great headlines, too. Thanks to all the groups who stood side-by-side with  DACAmented Americans this week. You should continue to tell your MoCs to stand up for childhood arrivals and co-sponsor S.1615 and H.R. 3591 now using our explainer and script developed in partnership with United We Dream and the National Immigration Law Center.
