Cards filled out by Indivisible Ventura members and friends...
UPDATE! Ocasio-Cortez and Omar cards added!
Action – Send out some love…
This project was started to give our support to two new congresswomen, Reps. Ocasio-Cortez and Omar, who’d been getting an inordinate amount of hate mail and serious death threats. Whether or not we agree with every policy or word they’ve ever spoken, we stand indivisible in their defense and wanted them to know that we respect and support them.
In the course of making the cards, we met Onjena Yo, an amazing artist from Brooklyn who makes multinational patriotic graphic designs melding our flag with those of the original countries of immigrant families. She volunteered her designs for Puerto Rico (Ocasio-Cortez) and Somalia (Omar) and suddenly, our project became bi-coastal.
You never know what can happen, so write.
Print out our “heart” postcards on cardstock or use your own. Write “Dear_______” and let your words fill in behind it. It doesn’t have to be eloquent or poetic, grammatically correct or even spelled perfectly. Crossouts and white-out – completely OK. Pictures, stickers, crayon. All good.

Watch this video. Be impressed. Then let’s help her “make good trouble.”
Action #1 – We are Indivisible Against Hate. #IStandWithIlhan, and make sure your legislators have got her back too.
It’s not just about Rep. Omar and it’s not about 9/11. Trump, GOP members and their minions are trying to tear the Democratic House majority apart- by attacking its diverse new legislators, inciting hatred and death threats, and religious dog whistling. They want to herd scared voters towards racism, facism and Islamophobia at the next election, and to incite us into wasting our time and opportunities squabbling amongst ourselves. Right now, we and our legislators need to join hands and clearly share our vision for a better and more just world. #IStandWithIlhan, #StandWithIlhan
