Here are projects we are working on right now...
2018 mid-term election
Indivisible OC 48 is working to increase voter information and engagement in the 2018 Mid-Term Election. In advance of the primary election, Indivisible OC 48 held four topical debates on key issues important to our members. At the conclusion of the series, we held an Endorsement Election to allow our member to select the congressional candidate that they wanted to support and put our volunteer hours behind. Harley Rouda (D) was the winner of that endorsement election and he went on to win the second position in November's General Election. We will help our members engage in voter registration and get out the vote events leading up to the November 6 election.
Town hall meeting
At the beginning of the group's formation, our main objective was to get our congressman to hold an in-person town hall style meeting so the residents of the 48th Congressional District could have open discussion and dialog with our Congressman, Dana Rohrabacher (R) to express our concerns, ideas and desires for Orange County and our nation in general. While this will always remain a priority, Mr. Rohrabacher is made it very clear that he is not interested in an in-person, town hall-style meeting. In August 2017, we held an empty chair town hall, the first in over three decades. We had 800+ attendees who were able to engage and ask questions of Congressman Ted Lui (D- CA 33) who adopted our district.
As concerned citizens, we care about our community in a variety of arenas ranging from the national to the local stage. We are always looking for ways to give back to our local communities by being involved with local charities and community projects.
Public AWARENESS actions
It is important for our members to know about the key current events and actions that are happening related to our MoCs and federal administration. We use various ways to ensure that the information about the actions of our Congressman are well known within the district. Mobilizing the group to achieve this is an ongoing effort, and we are looking to work together to advertise and crowd source these types of effort.
regular peaceful protest
In the natural course of governing, we are always actively responding to any immediate and time sensitive issues or legislation that warrants our attention and action.
