COINversation with Jessica Craven

UPDATE on Empty Chair Town Halls
Hats off to Clackamas, Bend, and Albany area Indivisible groups!
After multiple requests for an in-person, unscripted Town Hall with Congresswoman Lori Chavez-DeRemer, constituents grew frustrated with her refusals and held THREE of their own! The chair that should have been occupied by Chavez-DeRemer was, instead, occupied by a cardboard cutout of her while constituents asked questions and Indivisible leaders answered them based on public statements of votes that our Unrepresentative has made. Read more about them, and see some photos and videos HERE.
We Care Fund-A-Thon with
Northwest Abortion Access Fund
In the latest assault on reproductive freedom, a Trump-appointed judge has issued a ruling withdrawing FDA approval of mifepristone, one of two drugs used in abortions. FDA approved the abortion pill 23 years ago, and it has proven over and over to be a safe and effective drug for early abortion and care during miscarriages.
The judge's unprecedented ruling may jeopardize access to the abortion pill across the country including in Oregon. Join the fight to protect reproductive freedom and access to safe reproductive health care services!
Join the COIN We Care Team's 2023 Fund-A-Thon with Northwest Abortion Access Fund by donating to provide access to abortion and other reproductive health care services.
COIN Groups Take Action in their Communities
Thank you health care workers!
Indivisible activists know the work that starts in our homes and communities is just as important as the work that goes on inside the government. Whether we're gathering in homes or by zoom, organizing rallies, sign waving from bridges, phone banking, post carding, meeting with elected leaders, working on legislation, or even running for office, our members put in the time because democracy matters.
"This is about the fight for the soul of our democracy." Elijah Cummings
Kudos to Indivisible North Curry County on the success of their Women's March in January. For a small town, they have an active group and a very visible location for their rallies. Bret Cecil reported that the group marched a mile along Oregon Coast Highway 101 and was met with much support in the form of honks and waves from cars driving by.
WOW! What a Weekend!
COIN's Voting is Our Superpower rally and COINvention was pretty awesome!
Indivisible Co-Founder, Leah Greenberg and SIX of our COIN-endorsed candidates were there to emphasize how critical it is for us to turn out voters in this election to protect the freedoms we all value, freedoms under threat by an extremist GOP.
Freedom to VOTE
Freedom to choose when to start a FAMILY
Freedom to love and marry who we LOVE
Freedom to be OURSELVES
Freedom to live in a healthy ENVIRONMENT
Freedom to live in a healthy DEMOCRACY
