Here is the video from the event we held on April 30th. Firstly, thank you to everyone who came out to see it live and who watched on the livestream (or listened, the video cut out part way through leaving just the audio. Sorry! We will do better next time!) Also, thanks to the candidates, Tobi Beck and Joe Mackey for taking the time to sit down and answer questions with us. Lastly, but absolutely not least thank you to Greater Lafayette Progressives for co-hosting the event with us. The event couldn’t possibly happen without all their efforts.
If you don’t early vote remember primary election day is
TUESDAY, MAY 8TH, 2018!
The main reason for all this is voting! Your voice matters and you can use it right now as early voting in Indiana is open! Here is a list of all the early voting locations in Tippecanoe county.
Finally, our least favorite thing to do. Everything we do is volunteer based. We receive no money from outside sources, parties, or PACs. We are entirely funded by our membership and donors such as yourselves. If you’d like to see more events like this (because we’d love to keep putting them on) please consider donating a few dollars. Every amount counts and it can go a long way in improving the function and quality of our efforts.
The Resistance Fair went fantastic and it was great to see some of you there. If you were unable to attend we have compiled a playlist of all the talks given.
We were grateful to have so many great speakers give their time to talk about a diverse collection of topics.
Are you looking for ways you can help but just don’t have the time? You can now help by contributing online!
Greater Lafayette Indivisible is completely volunteer run. Your donation will help pay for organizing costs — things like meeting room rental, posters, art supplies, clipboards, transportation, and events like the Resistance Fair.
Greater Lafayette Indivisible is hosting a Resistance Fair with the theme “Get Involved. Be Informed. Find Your Place.” The fair, which marks the end of the first year of the Trump presidency, will feature speakers discussing the damaging effects of the administration on a wide range of issues, including healthcare, immigrant rights, and foreign policy. The fair will include food, drinks, and activities as well as an opportunity for the public to learn about local organizations. The event is free and open to the public. Guests are encouraged to bring canned goods to support the local Food Finders Food Bank.
Greater Lafayette Indivisible is a local 501c(4) non-partisan organization committed to civic engagement as a way to promote participatory democracy. Our goals include holding our elected officials accountable to constituents rather than to their national political party or outside interests, increasing voter participation, and promoting justice, equality and inclusion. GLI is one of almost 6000 local groups in the national Indivisible movement fighting for health coverage, registering American voters, and demystifying congressional advocacy.
