Get Involved! Join an Action Team
Act for Democracy, like more than 30 Indivisible groups across the state, is a member of the Consolidated Oregon Indivisible Network (COIN)—a coalition that seeks to cooperate and amplify joint efforts for advancing progressive federal and state legislation and holding our elected representatives accountable. COIN is currently organizing statewide teams and looking for volunteers interested in working on them. To learn more about the teams and to sign up, go here. Among the many team choices you have are the recruiting and supporting candidates team, the rural urban divide team, the state legislative team, the anti-racist education and action team, the social media team, and more. Find one that fires you up and join with other Oregonians to make a difference!

Indivisible Oregon has launched a campaign to support the For the People Act (HR-1/S-1), an important piece of proposed legislation that secures the right to vote and counters voter-suppression tactics.
