LOVE THAT! to be able to speak on behalf of groups across colorado is awesome!
robin
01:23:10
wouldn’t it be great to be this organized this year so we could coordinate a quick and powerful statewide response to proposed bills?
Dana Miller
01:23:45
so blessed to have Jody as our Co organizer!
robin
01:24:13
👍👍
Chiu-Ki
01:24:34
do you just call democrats or republicans as well?
robin
01:24:51
How do you prioritize which bills to focus on?
Jody Rein
01:25:08
awwwwww dana
Erik Johnson
01:25:33
Hi Jiggy - How are CA groups communicating? E-mail? Facebook (hope not) Web platform?
Rebecca Barrilleaux
01:25:33
what tools do you use to network and communicate?
Chiu-Ki
01:26:30
how do you know who's voting yes or no?
Jiggy Athilingam
01:31:04
From making close partnerships with organizations that are leading in the space and keeping in touch with them/joining coalition calls
Jiggy Athilingam
01:31:23
also relationships with the authors of the bills we’re following
Megan McNamee
01:31:26
i definitely agree with the value of coordinating our efforts more/better. and then it also seems such an uphill climb to get that going…can piggy speak to balancing individual group efficiency with supra-group efficiency?
Lexi Coburn
01:31:53
*Jiggy
Megan McNamee
01:32:20
super sorry!! that was autocorrect!!!! *Jiggy
Jiggy Athilingam
01:32:24
One thing we’ve implemented in California is to have each group that is part of the coalition designate a point person for being the lead on state issues for their group
Jiggy Athilingam
01:32:41
then those point people can join the calls to discuss state issues, and report back to their group
Jiggy Athilingam
01:32:59
And the rest of the people in each group can continue focusing other things
Jiggy Athilingam
01:33:53
also I should have prefaced everything with saying - what works in California may not work everywhere! Just sharing what’s worked so you all can hear and pick and choose and decide what might work for you
Amy Trombly
01:35:24
There is already a fund started against Cory Gardner
Dana Miller
01:35:25
need statewide sign on to a letter going to Polis about him not having a transition team related to immigrant rights nor a planned staffed member
Margaret Porter
01:35:47
Are there legal implications for fundraising to oppose/support certain candidates and/or issues?
robin
01:35:56
great idea Dana!
Erik Johnson
01:36:07
Monthly calls to Senator Bennet - how can Indivisible North Boulder participate in that?
Kathy Boyer
01:36:38
Do you want 1 survey per leader or 1 survey per group?
Dana Miller
01:36:40
need signon by Monday! meeting with Polis set
Dana Miller
01:36:53
yay Rick
Rick Block
01:36:57

Megan McNamee
01:37:04
yay Rick!
Dana Miller
01:38:17
letter is already written
Janet Caspers
01:38:43
Dana, I thought you have a letter.
Megan McNamee
01:38:52
yay Dana!
Dana Miller
01:38:59
yes
Janet Caspers
01:39:18
How do we get everyone to sign on?
Megan McNamee
01:39:26
monthly sounds great!
robin
01:39:36
monthly is good for me
Janet Caspers
01:39:37
Monthly is good!
Barbara Niederhoff
01:40:00
What needs to be done about the letter?
Diana Smith
01:40:06
During the legislative session weekly may be needed.
robin
01:40:48
good point about more regular calls during legislative session.
Dana Miller
01:41:08
I need folks to read it and let me know if your indivisible group wants to be added - Indivisible Denver and IFRR already signed on - I will get with Jody to get the letter to all of you and you can get back to me. How does that sound?
Janet Caspers
01:41:18
Yes
robin
01:41:24
yes!
Rebecca Barrilleaux
01:41:38

Megan McNamee
01:46:42
how do other groups navigate signing letters on behalf of the group? we have felt concerned about misrepresenting individual members, and also not knowing how to get quick and majority response
Donna Grauer
01:49:42
what is a good size for Sean's tablecloth meeting?
Donna Grauer
01:50:06
I mean # of people in the group.
Erik Johnson
01:50:08
Megan - Great question! We have the same issue at Indivisible North Boulder. We have not resolved this - each member writes an individual letter.
Margaret Porter
01:51:33
From Margaret at Indivisible North Boulder—Dana yes, please send letter and we’ll try to respond.
robin
01:58:12
