We are a multi-partisan group of more than 600 residents resisting the Trump agenda, respectfully making our voices heard by our elected representatives — and working to replace those representatives when they don't respect us!
Englewood Indivisible members live throughout all of Englewood in both Sarasota and Charlotte counties, as well as Placida, Rotonda West, North Port, the Gulf Coves and nearby Port Charlotte. We invite you to join us as we reach out to the community, campaign for change, and enjoy socializing together.
Our next (online) meeting will be a social gathering on Friday, July 24th at 2:00 PM.
With visits to voters likely impossible into the fall, Englewood Indivisible has been working with the Charlotte and Sarasota County Democrats to offer opportunities for our members to contribute to Trump's defeat in Florida next November.
Neighbor To Neighbor: In Sarasota County, you can join the new Neighbor To Neighbor (N2N) program, which ensures social distancing and still makes it possible to connect with our voting neighbors. N2N is almost exactly like the Neighborhood Leader program Englewood Indivisible has been using. Volunteers in both programs select a group of anti-Trump voters in their neighborhoods and contact those voters several times between now and the election, making sure they vote.
Volunteers get names and contact information for all the voters in their neighborhoods and can select Democrats, independents, and even (selectively) Republicans as "their" voters. They can contact these voters by phone, email or postcard. Scripts and coaching are available. The current script starts out with a wellness check, and we have a list of resources for voters in need; anti-Trump voters are encouraged to sign up for Vote By Mail. To join N2N, email EnglewoodIndivisible@gmail.com.
Remote Phone Bank: Join an effort underway to call the 20,000 Sarasota County Democrats who have not signed up for Vote By Mail. Vote-by-mail turnout has far surpassed in-person voting and that will be especially true this year. Training and lists are provided. To get started, contact Aimee Rusman, email@example.com.
No-contact Voter Contact: In Charlotte County, volunteers are needed to contact Democratic and independent Englewood area voters remotely and get them signed up for Vote By Mail. Volunteers are trained (remotely) before getting started. To get involved, email Linda DeMeritt at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Data Entry: A few data-entry volunteers are needed to help input voter contact information for the Charlotte County Dems. To volunteer, email Linda DeMeritt at email@example.com.
We've all seen some wonderful videos, cartoons, memes and posts floating around the internet. Starting with our May 11th newsletter, Englewood Indivisible is sharing one of those amusing or incisive items that is just too good to let anyone miss.
