LOWER CAPE INDIVISIBLE

WHO WE ARE

Lower Cape Indivisible (LCI) is an organization whose members have elected to participate based on the organization's mission: to mobilize for social, economic and environmental justice; promote universal participation in the democratic process; resist agendas that subvert American democratic values. We are one of more than 6000 Indivisible groups in the U.S. committed to resisting the Republican agenda, as well as holding our state and local leaders accountable for fair and ethical action. Our work is based on the Indivisible Guide, created by former congressional staffers who wanted to demystify political activism, and share what tactics were most effective.

ELECTIONS

In the years since its founding, LCI has come to focus a good part of its energy on electoral politics - elections. Lower Cape Indivisible was founded in response to an election - the 2016 election of Donald Trump - so the electoral focus feels natural. It's also the case that the Cape hosts a number of organizations that are effective promoters of LCI's values - Cape Cod Climate Change, Cape Downwinders, Grandmothers Against Gun Violence, and so on - that concentrate on various strategies and particular goals. LCI's strategies to promote its vision and values in the political arena have grown to include the following:

Barring some unforeseen, dramatic development, it's likely that the political scene in general and LCI's efforts in particular will be fairly low-key during this coming summer of 2023. However, we anticipate that energy and activity will ramp up quickly in the Fall as candidates and issues campaigns prepare for the critical 2024 presidential election. Please check our newsletter for an overview of what is happening and consult the relevant section(s) of the website for current activities.

The Hartmann Report/Off Message

"Trump's political Teflon coating is at least a hundred times more effective than Reagan’s was in his wildest dreams. Why?"
Wondering why the guy who told us to drink bleach is a step away from being president, despite the fact that the Orange Menace is clearly starting to lose control? Want to tell your Trumpy friends but need some evidence? Here are links
to two recent summaries of TrumpWorld craziness + some examples.
 [This week] Donald Trump got caught signaling to his most fervent
supporters that he intends to consolidate power and torment his political
opponents by creating a “unified” American “Reich”…
 Trump wouldn’t rule out restricting or banning contraception, then pretended
that hadn’t happened….
 After insisting for weeks that he’s innocent and will take the stand to prove it,
Trump’s lawyers rested their case after calling only one witness (not Trump,
and whose testimony was disastrous), so Trump insulted his judge for being
from Colombia….

Had it with Justice Samuel Alito and want to do something?

Two Actions To Take
Alito’s the one who flew high-flying flags aligned with the J6 Insurrectionists and Christian Nationalism outside his two houses, and blamed his wife for the first one. Who authored the Dobbs decision that ended Roe protection for abortions. And who’s now handed down the 6–3 decision Alexander v. South Carolina NAACP, which Slate describes as a devastating blow to the fight against racial gerrymandering [that guts] a series of precedents that guarded against racist redistricting, granting state legislatures sweeping new authority to sort their residents between districts on the basis of skin color.
Here are two actions:
A website that will walk you through the process of filing a complaint with the Supreme Court regarding Justice Alito.
Ask your senators to take a stand against Supreme Court corruption.
With the help of National Indivisible, make sure your senators are being vocal about the need for an investigation into Alito’s corruption. Congress cannot just accept a corrupt court.

Bigger Than Dobbs! Day Of Action Saturday, June 22, 2024

Rally at the Orleans Rotary - Noon to 2:00
*JOIN A STATEWIDE PROTEST AGAINST THE LOSS OF WOMEN'S RIGHTS*
On June 24, 2022, in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization was released. Despite the tireless work of pro-choice activists, Dobbs overturned two landmark court cases—Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood v.Casey and nearly 50 years of precedent protecting a person’s right to choose. Over the past two years, the assault on reproductive freedom in the United States has not slowed. Today, the Center for Reproductive Rights reports that 28 states have outlawed, are hostile to, or do not protect abortion.
This is a nationwide event, but MA voters need to know that the threat the Republican party poses is to democracy everywhere - even in blue MA! So please join us!
