No Excuses: Real Recovery Now. Our families, our economy, and our democracy are in crisis. This Recovery Recess, we will show up together to demand Congress go bold and go big, no excuses, and no exceptions. It’s time for Congress to urgently deliver jobs, care, justice, climate solutions, respecting indigenous tribal sovereignty, and real democracy for all of our people.
During February Recess Indivisibles made a huge impact. Indivisibles met with key Senators, had virtual Letter to the Editor writing parties, dropped off Valentines for their Senators and overall got really creative. We’ve already seen the impact that this recess had with firm commitments to overturn the filibuster from Senators Padilla, Klobuchar, and Smith and renewed pushes by Indivisibles on some key holdouts like Senator Sinema.
Let’s keep it up for the next recess: March 29 - April 9th. We have to sustain and escalate that pressure to make sure MoCs who committed to be Democracy Defenders maintain their commitment and that we keep pushing those who are faltering. HR1/S1 prevents voter suppression through automatic voter registration, same-day registration, fights racial and partisan gerrymandering at all levels of government and institutes public funding for elections to reduce the power of corporate money in government.
This recess we’re adding in a focus on bold recovery. The American Rescue Plan just passed but we know that the work is not done. We need Congress to immediately pivot to bold recovery based on the THRIVE Agenda, followed by Democracy Reform. Our vision is to use this moment to radically reshape our economy with a plan to create dignified jobs for millions of unemployed workers and support a better life for the millions more who remain vulnerable in this pivotal moment. This recess, we’ll be pushing our MoCs to support the THRIVE Agenda, and Democracy.
