Your weekly Indivisible Newsletter


Last night, Tammy Murphy -- wife to NJ Gov. Phil Murphy and former Republican -- announced that she was dropping out of the NJ Democratic Senate Primary clearing the path for Andy Kim to become the presumptive nominee. 

This is huge. For those of you who don’t remember: Andy Kim is one of our first endorsed candidates of the 2024 election cycle and was up against the entire machine of the NJ Democratic Party system

How did we get here?

This is just one more reminder that when Indivisibles organize, we win!

Despite the political noise of the moment, Indivisibles are continuing to organize for candidates and policies this cycle that will march into Congress and stand up for the American people. 

If you haven’t checked out Ezra’s email from this weekend, it’s an important reminder that our vision, our way of fighting for a better future, is impactful, lasting, and popular. We truly have the ability to change the direction of American politics as we know it as long as we stay in the fight. 

Tomorrow, the Supreme Court will hear arguments regarding FDA approval for mifepristone -- a case with far-reaching implications that could jeopardize access to the most common method of abortion across the country, even in states where abortion is legal. This despite the fact that a majority of Americans believe in abortion access. All the while, Trump is still running on a national abortion ban.

When we organize for candidates like Andy Kim, we work to ensure that the next Congress can end the filibuster and enshrine reproductive freedoms into federal law. Every step we take toward that goal is one small step toward a safer, healthier, and more accessible country for all Americans. 

It’s not just that we need to win. It’s that we’ve proven time and again that we can win. 

But we can’t do it without your help…

With that, here are your weekly to-dos:

 Your weekly to-dos 

  1. Sign up to defend democracy from Trump with Project 2024: Majority Over MAGA. Our Project 2024 was made in direct opposition to Trump’s dangerous MAGA objectives. This new electoral program will ensure Indivisibles all across the country have the opportunity to make a difference in the highest-priority races this cycle and prevent a MAGA catastrophe from taking place. This will include tactics like phonebanking, postcarding, and direct-to-voter texting along with our groundbreaking community conversation strategy: Neighbor2Neighbor. Sign up to be the first to know when we launch our tools in your area.
  2. Call your senator and demand they protect in vitro fertilization (IVF) access nationwide. The MAGA agenda did not just stop at repealing Roe. They intend to ban contraception, IVF, gender-affirming care, marriage equality, and more. Sen. Tammy Duckworth has introduced the Access to Family Building Act, a bill that would enshrine access to IVF and related services as a federal right, protecting both would-be families and their medical providers. If your senator is a Democrat, call and make sure they are a cosponsor. If your senator is a Republican, tell them to put their money where their mouth is, pass this bill, and actually support families. When you’re finished calling, send your senators an email urging them to protect IVF access. 
  3. Register for the Indivisible Rural Caucus Call this Wednesday, March 27 at 8pm ET/5pm PT. We’re getting ahead of election madness by talking to you about one of the most important tools you have as a group: The ability to run an exciting slate in a red state or rural area. This month’s Rural Call is all about laying the groundwork now in order to finish strong in November's elections, and beyond -- whether it's red state wins in 2024 or building local power to chase bad actors down, this month's call will help you make it happen by explaining the tools and tips we have available to you. Reminder: Anyone can come to the rural call but the focus will specifically be on rural strategies and issues.
  4. Keep reading below for more actions.

P.S. We rely on grassroots supporters to help fund the tools Indivisibles use on a daily basis -- including the call pages and LTE tools on your to do list! If you're able, pitch in today to help fund our work and keep this movement going.

Affordable Care Act Anniversary and Medicare Advantage

Last Saturday (3/23) was the anniversary of the passage of the Affordable Care Act (colloquially known as Obamacare or the ACA) -- one of the most impactful pieces of legislation this century.

As Democrats spent the weekend highlighting in their celebrations, it’s important to remember: Millions of Americans currently have healthcare coverage as a result of this policy, the ACA removed discriminatory barriers for elderly Americans and Americans with disabilities in accessing healthcare, and imposed requirements for plans to cover women’s preventative health services (e.g. birth control, breast and cervical cancer screenings, prenatal care).

The ACA has been a massive success for all Americans.

But as we remember, Republicans did everything in their power to block it, and some, like Trump, are still vowing to repeal it. The bellwether that signals good healthcare policy seems to be that Republicans hate it. 

Which brings us to today.

We know the MAGA agenda includes ending Medicare as we know it -- and a big part of their scheme includes handing the reins to private insurers. But we already know what happens when greedy insurance companies are put in charge: Medicare Advantage, the privatized option for Medicare, is rampant with fraud and overspending. If we allow insurance companies unchecked power to run the program, we risk sticking millions of Americans with coverage that promises quality healthcare only to deny coverage for essential care and services. 

Congress must hold these predatory Medicare Advantage plans accountable, and that starts with blocking the deceptive naming of these private plans. This is not Medicare, it is an attempt to further enrich the super-wealthy on the backs of aging Americans. 

If you believe that people should not have to worry about being ripped off while seeking health care, we need you to speak out now. Email your MoC about cosponsoring H.R. 732 -- the Save Medicare Act today.

Call for a Humanitarian Ceasefire

**Content Warning: Talk about the current humanitarian crisis in Gaza. Jump to the line break if you need to avoid this topic.**

This morning, the U.N. Security Council passed a resolution calling for an immediate ceasefire during the holy month of Ramadan in the hope of promoting a lasting peace. The vote passed 14-0, with the US abstaining after vetoing three previous attempts at a ceasefire resolution. 

In response, Netanyahu’s administration canceled a trip to Washington to discuss their planned offensive in Rafah -- a clear indication of Bibi’s refusal to de-escalate this humanitarian crisis.

Though the Security Council does not have an enforcement mechanism, resolutions are considered international law and could lead to sanctions. This is a long-awaited moment of the international community driving decisively toward peace.

Last week, 26 Democratic senators (PDF) and six members of the House (PDF) wrote letters to President Biden urging him to ensure that any aid we provide to Israel “advances a viable and achievable military plan that supports a long-term vision for peace, security and Palestinian self-determination.” Every day our congresspeople are moving a little further toward promoting peace.

We must do our part. 

As a world leader, the US must demonstrate our commitments to peace and the safety of civilian populations, and that starts with Congress. That means calling for a ceasefire, the return of the hostages, and unimpeded access to humanitarian aid. With 1.2 million people (half of them children) facing starvation, it’s past time to lean into our humanity and bring this crisis to an end.

Make sure your representative is on board.
