Take Action This Week! Indivisible National recommends:
- Tell your Senators to urge Biden not to appoint corporatists to his cabinet. In the Executive Branch, personnel is key to getting any of a President’s agenda enacted. If we want to see significant progressive change, it starts with President-elect Biden appointing progressive leaders to his cabinet and to key administrative positions. While Biden’s picks require Senate confirmation, there are ways Biden can circumvent Mitch McConnell’s plans for obstruction. For more details, read our resource about building a progressive Biden administration.
- Thank your progressive member of Congress. This letter template can be the first of many conversations with your member of Congress that thanks them for the work they’ve done and encourages them to pass bold, progressive legislation.
- Prepare for the work to come by reviewing our core priorities for 2021. Democracy reform is at the heart of the work we have to do to rebuild from the Trump years. Learn more about the issues we’ve identified as priorities for our work going forward.
Support the peaceful transfer of power.
