5 Things To Do This Week to Resist from the IL-9

 

Choose Your Health Plan—And Remind Others to Sign Up, Too

 

It’s time! It’s now open enrollment for those seeking health coverage under the Affordable Care Act. That means it’s time to change or add coverage for yourself and your family, and also to make sure all your friends and neighbors know it’s time to enroll, too. In the past few months, the current administration has done plenty to try to undermine signups; but that tactic isn’t working, and the ACA website is seeing record enrollments. Visit the Get America Covered project’s website for resources and support to make sure all your friends and family know that enrollment lasts through December 15.

 

Indivisible Illinois is also organizing daily phone banking to alert Illinois residents to the Affordable Care Act enrollment period. Whether you’ve got just a few minutes of your own to spare or can gather groups of friends to make calls together, sign up to participate in the phone bank. You’ll be doing your part to ensure everyone in Illinois who needs health insurance through the ACA is able to choose their coverage during open enrollment.

 

Add Your Name

 

We’re now less than a year from the 2018 midterm elections, which means organizations of every ilk are gearing up to help the voting public be as informed as possible on issues important to them and our country. The March for Science, which organized massive nationwide demonstrations this past April in favor of science and science policy, has just launched their initiative looking toward November 2018: Vote for Science. It’s early stages for this initiative, which aims to get Americans more engaged in advocating and voting for science policy. Add your name by taking their pledge, and stay tuned for more actions and resources from this group.

 

Boots on the Ground

 

While we in the Illinois-9 enjoy representation by progressive officials, our neighbors who are represented by Peter Roskam aren’t as lucky. Roskam, a conservative Republican who is in favor of the proposed tax plan that would adversely affect millions of Illinoisans, will be speaking at a major GOP fundraiser in Downers Grove on Thursday—and residents from the Illinois-9 will be showing up to join our neighbors in protest. Protesters will demonstrate on Thursday, November 16, from 5:30-7:30 p.m., at Ashyana Banquets in Downers Grove.

 

In another bid to help get more progressive candidates on the ballot, volunteers through North Suburban Democrats will be circulating petitions in Arlington Heights this weekend to help Mark Walker, currently Wheeling Township committeeman, to get on the ballot for State Representative. Sign up here and plan to help out on Sunday, November 19, at 10:30 a.m.
