ACTION:

Get Started

Indivisible recommends the following five steps to arm yourself with information necessary for all future advocacy activities.

  1. Find your three MoCs, their official websites, and their office contact info. See below or check here.
  2. Sign up on your MoCs’ websites to receive regular email updates, invites to local events, and propaganda to understand what they’re saying. Every MoC has an e-newsletter.
  3. Find out where your MoCs stand on the issues of the day — appointment of white supremacists, tax cuts for the rich, etc. Review their voting history and their biggest campaign contributors.
  4. Set up a Google News Alert — for example for “Rep. Bob Smith” — to receive an email whenever your MoCs are in the news.
  5. Research on Google News what local reporters have written about your MoCs. Find and follow those reporters on Twitter, and build relationships. Before you attend or plan an event, reach out and explain why your group is protesting, and provide them with background materials and a quote. Journalists on deadline — even those who might not agree with you — appreciate when you provide easy material for a story

Save Pensacola Beach and Navarre Beach Petition

sign the petition to save pensacola beach and navarre beach

https://www.change.org/p/bill-nelson-save-pensacola-beach-and-navarre-beach

There’s a multi-billion dollar land grab moving through Congress.
The Senate is working on S. 1073, the Escambia County Land Conveyance Act. The purpose of the bill is “To authorize Escambia County, Florida, to convey certain property that was formerly part of Santa Rosa Island National Monument and that was conveyed to Escambia County subject to restrictions on use and reconveyance.”

Republican Representative Matt Gaetz has passed legislation in the U.S. House to sell off Pensacola Beach and Navarre Beach to private developers. The land is currently protected by a 1946 Congressional Land Conveyance that guarantees all leases on the beach belong to and must benefit the public. Gaetz' bill would take away these public land rights. Senator Marco Rubio has introduced the bill in the Senate, where it is currently in the Energy & Natural Resources Committee.

Oppose S. 1073 The Escambia County Land Conveyance Act

Call your senators to oppose s. 1073

The Senate is working on S. 1073, “To authorize Escambia County, Florida, to convey certain property that was formerly part of Santa Rosa Island National Monument and that was conveyed to Escambia County subject to restrictions on use and reconveyance.”

The House version of the bill, H. 2370, was sponsored by Rep. Matt Gatz, FL01 and passed on July 26th. Inexplicably, Sen. Nelson has co-sponsored Sen. Rubio's bill after opposing at least three previous versions. If this passes, Santa Rosa Island homes that are currently sitting on LEASED land owned by the citizens of Escambia County will be able to purchase that land and dispose of it at will, in whatever manner that individual sees fit.

Oppose H.R. 1215

The Protecting Access to Care Act of 2017, HR 1215, would dramatically undermine patient protections against malpractice and medical error. Because the bill would preempt any less-stringent state laws on malpractice, it would significantly alter malpractice law in at least 47 states. The bill would limit non-economic damages for malpractice to $250,000 and shorten the statute of limitations for malpractice suits. The bill would also ban patients from filing class action lawsuits against doctors that prescribe FDA-approved drugs or medical devices that cause them harm. This provision is particularly troubling given that a 2014 study found newly FDA-approved drugs have a 1 in 5 chance of causing adverse reactions in some patients.

Help Stop Trumpcare

The nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office (CBO) has now confirmed what the vast majority of Americans already knew: The Senate's Affordable Care Act repeal bill, the Better Care Reconciliation Act (BCRA), is a cruel, ill-crafted disaster. The CBO's analysis predicts that BCRA will leave 22 million additional people uninsured by 2026.
