Welcome to COIN
COIN is made up of Indivisible groups from across Oregon that collaborate to protect democracy and implement progressive values through voter outreach and education, campaigns and elections, holding elected leaders accountable, and advocating for legislation that best reflects our values.
COIN - The Consolidated Oregon Indivisible Network
We are part of Indivisible, a nationwide movement of thousands of volunteer-led local groups that engage in progressive advocacy and electoral work at the local, state, and national level.

Check out our recent COINversation with
If you missed our recent COINversation with Democratic Powerhouse, Simon Rosenberg, you can watch the recording here. Simon is a leader and believer in the power of grassroots activism. He shared his reasons for optimism, offered suggestions for growing our successes, and he responded to our questions.
Simon has been deeply involved with Democratic politics since the 1990s, as a strategist and advisor to the Bill Clinton campaign and the Obama administration. He founded the National Democratic Network and the New Policy Institute, a Washington, D.C., think tank and has now moved his work online to directly work with grassroots organizations like us!
Check out Simon on the new substack he has launched, Hopium Chronicles. You can also find him on Twitter and subscribe to his YouTube channel. You can learn more about his work at the following links:

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.
Together we can fight for reproductive freedom for everyone! Here are some ideas:
Ground transportation - $20 to help folks get to and from the clinic if they don't have transportation or can't drive after anesthesia or $75 for those who must travel hundreds of miles for reproductive health care or $500 for air travel from states that have banned abortion
Fund a mail order medication abortion - $200
Or donate any amount you can to support reproductive freedom
For more information and how you can donate, check out COIN We Care's fundraising page.
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.
If you have a photo of your group's event, send it to us for the website at email@example.com.
WOW! What a Weekend!

Freedom to choose when to start a FAMILY
Freedom to love and marry who we LOVE
Freedom to be OURSELVES
