Ann Arbor Indivisible

Date: 
Sat, Aug 19, 2017 - 3:00pm to 4:30pm

City:

Join us! Ann Arbor Indivisible meets twice a week (Thursdays at 7:00 pm and Saturdays at 3:00 pm) to plan actions, make calls, discuss strategies, and enjoy resisting Trump's agenda with allies! Saturday we meet in the big green Common House at Sunward Co-housing off Jackson Road in Ann Arbor.

The Indivisible Guide nationally is a simple, effective approach to getting our elected representatives to speak for us. For example, we seek to convince our Senators to obstruct legislation by withholding consent, filibustering, or submitting amendments.
