(Updated with revised endorsement & proposition info. 10/13/18)
We at Indivisible Ventura don’t believe we have any more time to coddle those who feel that the answers to the problems of this new century lie in the bones of the last one.
We believe in progress and in science. We believe in women, their sovereignty over their own bodies and their access to equal pay and family leave. We believe in the separation of church and state. We believe that all Americans should have access to clean air, pure water, affordable, accessible healthcare, and a safe place to sleep. We believe in protecting our environment and our wildlife. We believe in our youth and their access to education without crippling debt. We believe in helping our immigrants, our poor, and our homeless. We believe in the rights of workers and a living wage. We believe in strong gun laws to keep our communities safe. We believe in in the fundamental American value that all people are created equal. We believe that the American dream is worth fighting for.
That’s why we vote. Every time. But we need more people to stand beside us.
Although Indivisible Ventura is not officially endorsing any particular candidate, but we’ve pulled together endorsements from other groups we respect, for you to read and compare along with reference materials. We believe the ones featured will help push us forward.
This is a long ballot and we want to make the process easier for everyone.
- Remember: There are no points taken off for leaving a section blank – so don’t let not knowing everything about everything stop you from heading to the voting booths. Vote for what you believe in and what you understand.
- Too busy to research? Find a group that shares your mission or vision (you just read ours) and vote with them.
So sit down with a cup of coffee and run through this list, and you’ll be surprised at how confident you’ll feel filling out your ballot. And really, why should our husbands be the only ones to benefit from our hours of research?
First, make sure you have a Voting Plan!
What the heck is that? Is it boring? Is it painful? A voting plan is described here and “No” and “No.”
