The MAGA-GOP extremists have played the long game, slowly taking control of key state legislatures and election boards and placing so-called originalists on the Supreme Court of the United States. The rigged SCOTUS has now completed the decades-long plan to overturn Roe v. Wade and the NRA funded removal of states’ rights to control gun violence.
The only solution left to ensure the freedoms of modern democracy to all Americans, is to make sure in November we resoundingly reject their extremist vision of our society. If we don’t the dismantling of our democratic norms and procedures will continue.
Even if the January 6 Committee hearings result in criminal prosecutions, the insurrectionists’ plan is still to take over state legislatures, attorneys general offices, and election boards.
Indivisible Outer Cape will work to register voters in all states and to turn out as many voters as possible in November. We believe we outnumber the extremists, but we need everyone to pitch in and do their part.
We are working with a skeleton crew of volunteers and we urge you to get in touch if you want to help!
“An opportunity to save democracy,” is what Indivisible co-founder Ezra Levin said in January of 2020 about our election of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris and a Democratic controlled Senate! The democratic trifecta is the opportunity to save democracy! We didn’t save it yet! We still have a lot of work to do in order to repair and strengthen it!
Current events in our Capitol have shocked, saddened and outraged many Americans, but Indivisible members recognized the danger signs long ago. What happened on January 6, 2021, was always the likely outcome of electing and enabling a man like Donald Trump and even though he may be leaving the White House, the forces that made a president like him possible are still present. Indivisible Outer Cape remains committed to combatting this.
We at Indivisible Outer Cape believe that Black Lives Matter and we strive for racial and social justice as one of our core values. The recent actions of our Governor to undo the hard work of the legislature – during an unprecedented year in an extended session – on police reform and reproductive rights is indicative of the systemic racism the Republican party wishes to perpetuate. Our efforts to examine and influence legislation to root out racism must continue.
In order to preserve our democracy, Indivisible Outer Cape (IOC) supports and empowers people who live on the Outer Cape and facilitates their political engagement.
Indivisible Outer Cape is a non-partisan local entity, affiliated with the nationwide Indivisible network. Our members are a diverse group of citizens and U.S. residents who want fairness, decency and equality to dominate our country’s discourse and policies. Our goals concern protecting DEMOCRACY, EQUALITY for all, our HEALTH, and our ENVIRONMENT. We believe our participation in activism and the political process are key to achieving these goals. We will support our representatives when they stand for these ideals and hold them accountable when they do not. Some of us are first-time activists and others have been at the forefront of civic action for decades. We learn from and support each other.
We Take Action
Since inauguration day in 2017, Indivisible groups have been showing up en masse to congressional offices, organizing events and flooding the congressional phone lines. We are resisting ‘Trumpism’ because of the threat it poses to our democracy – and resistance is working. We take action by calling our Members of Congress (MoCs) and other elected officials regularly, participating in rallies and marches, initiating postcard-writing events, providing educational resources, and much more. Since our victories in the 2018 midterm elections, we focused on pressuring our new House of Representatives to introduce new and progressive legislation that reflects our values. They delivered! Despite the fact that no legislation can be enacted without the Senate and the President’s approval, Indivisible feels that this is the best way to ensure a platform for the 2020 election. Additionally, it is vitally important that Indivisible groups across the country work on strengthening progressive state legislatures. This website will provide you with information and resources to support you as you join us in these efforts.
