Bridging the Divide in Oregon + Georgia
Updated: Dec 11, 2020
Jamie McLeod Skinner on Bridging the Divide COIN Virtual Presentation, December 8, 7:00pm
Jamie McLeod Skinner, from Oregon’s second congressional district and former contender for the Democratic candidate for Secretary of State, will give a presentation on a special COIN call, Tuesday, December 8, at 7:00pm. She will address the issue of bridging the divide between urban and rural areas of the state. Skinner has been at the forefront of conceptualizing and carrying out change in how people from different backgrounds view each other and how they can collaborate. Many Indivisible members worked on Jamie’s campaigns in 2018 and 2020 and know how inspiring and effective her approach is. As we begin to focus on 2021, let’s hear what she has to say about our collective future and how we can direct our efforts for the change we seek.

Both of Georgia’s two upcoming Senate races are winnable, and they need all hands on deck.

The runoff election will be held January 5 and is critical for keeping Mitch McConnell and the Republicans at bay!
