IslandWomensMarch-long

2020 Island Women’s March Saturday, January 18, 1pm on the Bar Harbor Village Green.

Please join us to mark the 100th anniversary of a true Suffrage milestone — the ratification of the 19th amendment granting women the right to vote!

There will be a slate of inspirational speakers as well as an open house across the street at MDI Ice Cream for warming up. A number of organizations will have tables set up so that we can convert our enthusiasm (or anger) into action.

REGULAR ACTIONS

#ResistTrumpTuesdays:  Weekly group visit to our Member of Congress offices in Bangor.  Meet at the Town Hill VIS at 9:30 am to carpool.  (The VIS is the fire station at the intersection of the Crooked Road and Rt. 102.)

Indivisible MDI Group meetings are at 6:30 pm on the second Wednesday of every month, at the YWCA MDI in Bar Harbor.  36 Mt. Desert Street, Bar Harbor. A children’s area is available. Please note a schedule change for February and April: Our monthly meetings will be held on February 5 and April 1, 2020 to avoid conflict with the Racial Equity Working Group speaker series.

Postcard-writing at the Jesup Library, Bar Harbor. A mail box and supplies are on a table in the rotunda: complete a postcard about something you want our Members of Congress to hear, and put the postcard back into the box. We will mail it for you.

 

PAST EVENTS

Tell Me the Truth

Join us for a conversation between two friends to examine cross-racial issues. Shay and Debby are riveting. Their chats are unscripted and even they do not know where the conversation will take them.

On Monday, 9/10/2018, we joined with other Indivisible groups in Maine to sponsor ads in the Bangor Daily News and the Portland Press Herald opposing the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court.

Our April meeting featured a presentation by Chris Cayer of MoreVoice.org about Ranked Choice Voting. It is important for everyone to understand that the June 12 election will be using ranked choice voting for primaries AND will include a statewide ballot question about continuing Ranked Choice Voting in the future. Links to information presented at the meeting are below.
