We are working locally to prevent gun violence through common sense legislation and committed action. It has been two decades since the massacre at Columbine took the lives of 13 students. It has been fifteen years since the Virginia Tech massacre took the lives of 32 students. It has been ten years since the massacre at Sandy Hook took the lives 26 students and staff. And 10 more years of senseless gun violence.  Twenty two weeks into the year 2022, America has already seen at least 246 mass shootings.  Make it Stop

S Q U I D – and Nantucket

Fisherman Peter Kaizer and other concerned Nantucketers, are working to educate the general public about these alternatives, which are necessary for the sustainability of forage food, in specific, the squid spawning event.

Insuring that the same protections are in place for Nantucket’s waters AND limiting the catch amounts during the spawning season are vital to the sustainability of critical bait fish for this region.

Take Action on ACA

This email from Indivisible National March 6, 2017

How to stand indivisible with the 32 million Americans who rely on the ACA

Join the Indivisible Emergency Call on Defending Obamacare. Health care experts will be on hand to provide an overview of what’s happening and what you can do to stop the repeal of Obamacare.
When: Tomorrow, Tuesday, March 7 at 9 PM EST

RSVP here.

Tell your MoCs to demand a fully transparent process for any legislative action on the ACA, including requiring a public Congressional Budget Office cost estimate (“score”) before any vote. This week, House Republicans plan to rush their repeal bill through two committees, and MoCs will only have a few hours to review the bill. We’ve got a brand new script for contacting your MoC’s office. Make it clear: No Score, No Vote.


The next major congressional recess isn’t until April, and the MoCs pushing for repeal would love to repeal Obamacare before then so that they don’t have to answer any more pesky questions. Our response: Not so fast.
