January 6 – Light a candle, light up the phone lines!

The leadership of Indivisible Ventura did not plan an in-person vigil for January 6 due to COVID. We know that others, due to geography, illness, weather, etc., would also not be able to attend a in-person vigil on Thursday evening – the anniversary of the January 6th insurrection. (Find a nearby in-person or virtual event here: https://www.mobilize.us/democracyvigils/) But there are great alternatives for expressing our support!

  • Light a candle: Small Deeds Done (https://smalldeedsdone.com) highlighted this idea of “putting a lighted candle (or one that works on a battery but looks like a candle) in a window visible to the street on the evenings of Jan. 5 and 6, just as a way of saying metaphorically, “I want to keep light and democracy alive.”” Then, “If you are on social media, take a photo of it and post with the hashtag #lightupdemocracy.”
  • Light up the phones and social media: Many hands make light work, and now we can do it from home. Pick an activity from below, even a type you’ve never tried before (training included), and join in to fight back against the forces of fascism and secession threatening the country we love. Yes, this work is effective!
  • NEW – Oppose the Sedition Caucus! Donate to “IT STARTS TODAY” – Eight Senators and 139 Representatives (all Republicans) voted to overturn the 2020 Presidential election results in Arizona and Pennsylvania. Contribute today to the next opponent of every one of these treasonous legislators here: https://contribute.itstarts.today/anti-sedition
  • We will update as more activities are posted or are filled.
