The THRIVE Agenda

Image

The trees are blooming, birds are chirping, and Indivisibles across the country are shaking off the final dredges of winter for Recovery Recess! 

This March recess (March 29 - April 11) we’re pushing our members of Congress to support a bold, inclusive recovery package and reforms that strengthen our democracy. Join our Recovery Recess Week of Action to demand that our members of Congress prioritize passing a transformational recovery package, like the THRIVE Agenda, and critical democracy-saving reforms, like the For the People Act and D.C. Statehood. 


Here’s how to get involved:

🌱Call our representatives and then call our senators to ask them to support our March recess asks. We have a short window of opportunity to be heard by our MoCs while they’re back in their districts. 

🌱Check out our Recovery Recess Week of Action Toolkit. This is your one-stop shop for all things Recovery Recess including resources, explainers, and more.

Midwest Democracy Reform


Indivisible National has been working on a special project for a few weeks - a Midwest Democracy Reform series! We'll hear from guest speakers, musicians, and then write Letters to the Editor together so we can get media attention about why we need to act with urgency and get our democracy back on track.

 
  • Voting Rights
With rampant voter suppression targeting voters of color, immigrants, and poor communities across the country, enshrining and expanding the right to participate in our democracy has become more and more urgent. Congress must pass H.R. 4 (the John Lewis Voting Rights Act).


 
  • DC Statehood
D.C. has a population of almost 700,000 (more than Wyoming or Vermont), and it represents an increasingly diversifying electorate nationwide (if D.C. were a state, it’d be the only majority-minority state in the country). None of those people have voting representation in the House or Senate. The way the Senate was designed caters to the shrinking conservative base, and it’s time to expand representation to reflect the true needs of the people.
