INDIVISIBLE, WE WIN!

Dear Friends, Neighbors, Volunteers, Activists, Nasty Women & Bad Hombres,

Congratulations on your first local election win in the Trump era!

It goes without saying that many of us did not expect to be engaged at this level of activism just a year ago. Over the course of the last 11 months we've built a local movement from scratch - forming alliances and friendships, seeking out expertise and committing to doing the work. We have learned a lot and found our focus - resisting the Trump agenda on a local, state and national level with direct action in politics to influence our government. Elections really do have consequences and our county race and the energy that you brought into it received the attention of Indivisible Guide and the national news media. Well done!!

We had a strong candidate in George Latimer who campaigned tirelessly, reaching out to voters across the county every day. George championed the key issues Progressives at home were most concerned about: a fair and balanced county budget, strong environmental protections, maintaining a publicly run airport, investments in infrastructure and parks, protections for immigrants, banning gun shows at the county center and being a local shield against Trump's damaging agenda.

Even before Mercer's 'dark money' entered the race, Astorino had millions in the bank to pay for ads and mailers. He had the benefit of being the incumbent - he was a familiar name with a reputation for being a 'nice guy.' It was always going to be an uphill battle and New York had all eyes on Westchester. And, because of your tireless dedication and activism, we 'trumped' big money in politics and turned this into a competitive race for the win.

There is much for us to be proud of - Scores of people volunteered. Fundraisers and trainings were held. Social media teams assembled. Position papers and info graphics researched and published. Letters to the editor submited. Town halls, rallies, protest and debates attended. And then, there was, ‘The Chicken’. Collectively we accomplished a tremendous amount, learned a lot and energized peple to get involved in politics at the local elve. Yet, we also understand that this has been a training run. 2018 is coming and there is much for work to be done – congressional and state races, IDC, plus a governor’s race to name a few.

So, today, take a breather and celebrate. Tomorrow, we commit to fight again and ‘The Resistance’ begins anew.

In Solidarity. – IW Team
