Tax Day Rally

April 16, 2017 by pegjohnston

About 200 people attended the Tax Day Rally. It was one of hundreds across the country and in Washington DC, protesting the Republican/Trump plans for a budget and tax policy. Protesters also demanded that President Trump reveal his taxes, especially because of his foreign investments and entanglements. Citizen Action schedule of events in next story below. May 6th is the next Indivisible meeting at Endicott Library. See FB page for more details.

Indivisible Binghamton

March 25, 2017 by pegjohnston

The second meeting of Binghamton's Indivisible chapter drew 60-70 people. One of 7000 chapters of Indivisible, founded by former Congressional staffers who have charted a political change strategy, the group focuses on opposing the Trump agenda and retrogressive policies at the national, state and local levels. In Binghamton Tim Mollen moderates the group with many others who take on various responsibilities and organizing tasks such website and social media development, in person meetings, phone calling legislators, writing letters, editorials, etc., and generally holding elected officials accountable. The group is paying particular attention to REp. Claudia Tenney who supports most of the Trump agenda. The group has agitated for a town hall meeting without results so far.

Indivisible Binghamton is organized online with a closed Facebook group; interested people may apply for inclusion and get on the mailing list. They take as their blueprint the Indivisble Guide, accessible here.  The founders of the movement took as their inspiration the success of the Tea Party in winning elections and opposing Obama's agenda. The strategies are the same; the policies and vision of America are completely different. It is a grassroots movement targeting elected representatives with contacts and creating a public presence. The movement is credited with rallying support for immigrants and against the travel ban, and most recently the vote on the Affordable Care repeal, which divided Republicans.

Indivisible Binghamton meets monthly and is promoting a TAX Day rally April 15th at the Broome Co Courthouse.
