Indivisible KC Week of May 8th - Kansas Edition
Hello, fellow Kansans!
This week, we lost a battle as the House passed the AHCA, but this fight isn't over yet. We'll be holding our area Representatives, especially Kevin Yoder, accountable for that vote.
Yoder never confirmed that he read the bill, so we'll be reading it to him at his office, with our own Citizen Filibuster, starting Tuesday at noon at his office.
We'll also invite him to our Constituent Town Hall on Friday night, where he can explain his vote in front of the very people who will be affected. Whether he's there or not, come and hear about the bill and ask your own questions.
We are encouraging our members to visit their Senators office on their own this week. You can go alone or grab a few friends, and head to Senator Moran's or Roberts' office. Use the tools and tactics we have taught you over the last few months to have an individual meeting with their staffers. Make sure to document it and let us know how it went by tagging us on Twitter, @Indivisible_KC, or post on Facebook! We will amplify your message!
Can't attend the office visits? No problem! Write a letter to your Senators to tell them what you insist upon seeing in the healthcare bill they write in the Senate.
And even more importantly, call your Representatives to hold them accountable for their unconscionable AHCA vote.
Last, but not least, make sure you mark your calendars for Tuesday, May 23rd as Indivisible Kansas City is holding its first member meeting!
We'll see you out there! Keep calling and keep sending your letters. You call it resistance? We call it democracy.
