Share, share, share the Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/events/2474989142574688/ – we need a HUGE turnout! This is a NATIONAL EVENT!
Join us on Presidents Day—Monday, 2/18 from noon to 1:30pm— on the corner of Victoria and Telephone in Ventura in front of the Government Center (800 S Victoria Ave, Ventura)
Bring your flags, signs, dress in red, white, and blue – and show what real patriots look like!
Donald Trump has declared a #FakeNationalEmergency—an illegal power grab from an unhinged man to push his racist, dangerous policies.
Let’s be clear: Trump is the real national emergency. In crisis moments like this—when a president abuses power so egregiously—how the citizenry responds in the immediate aftermath can shape the course of our country’s history. That’s why MoveOn members and allies are launching hundreds of events all across the country.
Together, we will say NO to Trump’s power grabs, NO to his racist border wall, NO to xenophobia, and NO to HATE.
Trump’s undemocratic power grab Continue reading “Stop the #FakeNationalEmergency! Presidents’ Day Protest Ventura”
On Sunday afternoon, Mike Pompeo delivered a speech at the Reagan Library and many of us from Indivisible Ventura joined in with our sister group and protest organizer, Indivisible Simi Valley, to “welcome” him to Simi Valley!
Driving in, we saw banners strewn across overpasses!
Outside of the Reagan Library, protest songs blared as we “greeted” Mr. Pompeo and his guests with signs and dancing as they arrived to hear his speech on Iran.
A beautiful day to be with friends, neighbors, and those who love our country – and a huge shoutout to those who supported us with honks and cheers in passing cars (even those leaving the Library after Continue reading “Did Mike Pompeo Think He Could Visit Ventura County and Not Get Protested?”
We will be joining a statewide effort to get out the vote in California District 1!
When: Wednesday, April 4th at 11:00AM – 2:00 PM
Where: Santino’s Pizza Parlor – 4321 Telegraph Rd, Ventura
Fun! Pizza will be provided! (A little cheese grease goes a long way toward making our postcards have that special “homey” touch!)
CD1 is LaMalfa’s district which is spread out, red, and rural. The CD1 Democratic Alliance have asked us to write postcards to their rural democratic voters, encouraging them to turn out to vote. We are not endorsing a candidate, just advocating power to the polls.
Our appeal will be directly to the voters in CA-1 – NOT mass political mailings, because all of our cards will be handwritten. Each will be a message from one voter to another. We are simply asking Americans to do that most American thing — VOTE!
Here are some tidbits from LaMalfa’s reelection site to inspire us:
“I am proud to have earned an A rating and the endorsements of the NRA and Gun Owners of America.”
“The current (immigration) policy Continue reading “Postcard Party for California District 1 on April 4th!”

From our increasingly rattled president, probably directly from his bathroom.
From a retired four-star Army general who received three Purple Heart medals for injuries sustained during his service in Vietnam, two Silver Stars for valor, and two Distinguished Service Crosses.
Donald Trump is publicly considering firing Special Counsel Robert Mueller, the person leading the Department of Justice investigation of possible criminal actions by Donald Trump and members of his presidential campaign, as well as the efforts to conceal those activities.

For inspiration, read this open letter to Donald Trump from the California Democratic Party regarding today’s visit:
Dear Mr. Trump,
We know it’s been a while since you visited California. Is it because we’re the reason you lost the popular vote?
Or the fact that the world looks to us as the leader on climate change?
Are you intimidated by our Governor who speaks Latin better than you speak, period?
Well, regardless of why you stayed away your first year in office, you’re coming here today.
And since it’s your first trip in a couple of years, we thought you might appreciate some tips on how to have a productive and successful visit. Following these simple, easy-to-understand rules will help you navigate your way around a state that proudly lives in the 21st Century:
Tip #1 – DON’T PRAISE NAZIS. Seriously. Nazis are not popular anywhere, but they’re incredibly unpopular in California. We know this has been an issue for you Continue reading “Today’s Voter Registration Postponed, Trump Protest Still On!”
Minimal Script: I am calling from [zip code] to ask Rep. [___] to co-sponsor H.R. 669 – “Restricting First Use of Nuclear Weapons Act of 2017”.
More script if you want it: Trump should not be allowed to launch a nuclear first strike without a declaration of war by Congress. I believe that this bill preserves Constitutional checks and balances on Executive powers.
Rep. Salud Carbajal has already signed. Thank him by email.
WTH? – Rep. Julia Brownley: (CA-26): DC (202) 225-5811, Oxnard (805) 379-1779, T.O. (805) 379-1779

Minimal Script#1: I’m calling from [zip code] to ask Sen. [___] to oppose Trump’s Executive Order for “Association Health Plans” that will flood the market with junk health insurance plans, and undermine the California insurance market.
Minimal Script#2: I’m calling from [zip code] to ask Sen. [___] to compel the Federal government to continue subsidy payments to stabilize the health care markets after Trump’s assault on our health care by executive order.
More Script if you want it: His actions will cause millions to lose access to affordable health care and will plunge ACA markets into chaos.

Vote NO on Jeffrey Bossert Clark for Top Environmental Prosecutor
Script: I am calling Senator [Feinstein/Harris] to ask her to vote NO on Jeffrey Bossert Clark for Assistant Attorney General for the DOJ Environmental and Natural Resources Division.
Additional Script if you want: Clark is a climate change denier whose opposition to environmental regulations and protections makes him unsuitable for the role of enforcing America’s environmental laws.

Please take a moment to add some comments on why retaining the 5-year moratorium on offshore oil leasing is important to you. Deadline is Aug. 17th.
