DEFENDERS OF DEMOCRACY
We are a grassroots advocacy group from Michigan's 9th Congressional District, dedicated to defending our democracy.
DONATE TO FIGHTING #9
WHAT WE ARE WORKING ON:
We worked hard in the 2020 election cycle, but our work is not done.
We will continue to post suggestions here on efforts or events you may want to join.
1. Read the new Indivisible Guide: A Practical Guide For Fixing Our Democracy
2. MichiganResistance.org does weekly Call Parties (now virtual), calling constituents to encourage them to call their state representative about a specific issue. Training and scripts are provided. You are calling friendly constituents, so these are easy calls.
Join Michigan Resistance to receive their weekly emails with call party information.
3. 100 Days of Action - for President Biden's first 100 days in office, our ally, Indivisible Huron Valley, is guiding its members to do an action a day for 100 days! Check out their website regularly for daily calls to action: https://www.indivisiblehv.com/

In May of 2019, leaders of more that 50 Indivisible groups in Michigan convened for the first time.
Leaders decided we could amplify our power if we worked together, so StateWide Indivisible Michigan (SWIM) was born.
We have met virtually every month since then, strategizing on how to best use our superpower: our network of volunteers.
Our goal in 2020 is to Flip The House in Michigan, by winning the Democratic majority that Gov. Whitmer needs. We need to flip 4 seats and hold the seats won in 2018. SWIM leaders know the best use of our resources (people power) is to focus on these house legislature races. Then in 2022, we take back our Michigan senate.
