Indivisible OC Outreach Meeting and Potluck: Reaching Out to our Neighbors
Sun, April 16, 2017, 4:15 PM – 7:15 PM PDT
Update: We're adding a great speaker at 5:30 pm, Sara Holland from the OFA organization and a champion organizer. She will be talking about precinct organization, the next step after the data organization we'll be showing you. Don't miss this, even if you need to come late (just like some of you, she has multiple family holiday events, but she was excited when she heard of our plans).
If you are someone without family for Easter or Passover celebrations, or you don't celebrate those holidays -- or if you do, and they are finished for the day, bring a favorite dish for four to six people and join us for an important meeting. April is a month with three important marches, and new dates to demand recess town halls, but it is also a time when we can begin the process of reaching out within our communities for new activists and new voters. Come to learn about some new ways of interfacing with the community and with our congressional representatives. We'll be demonstrating our first formatted Congressional Database and showing you how to Bulldoze the Budget!
VOLUNTEERS: We need a volunteer crew to help set up the tables and chairs and video projector, a couple of people to check in those who have pre-registered and to add the names of those who have not, a couple of people to be in charge of the food and beverage table and make coffee, and last -- a crew to help put everything away and make sure everything is left spotless and ready for the next group. Please email Sharon Toji at TeamIndivisibleOC@gmail.com if you can help on one of those tasks.
Is it OK to bring children and teens?
Yes, as long as your children will be happy with whatever books, tablets, toys or drawing supplies you want to bring. Yu can always take a break outside, where it's beautiful and there are birds to watch a short distance from the meeting. Teens are always welcome. It's not too early to become a knowledgable part of the electorate!
How do I get there, and what's the parking situation?
Here is a map provided by the IRWD. Be sure to follow the RED ARROW pathway, and DO NOT try to enter from Michelson. You will come up against a barrier. https://www.irwd.com/images/pdf/maps/SJWS%20access%20map%2010-2015.pdf
You must get to the intersection of University Drive and Campus Drive. Driving AWAY from UC Irvine on Campus, cross University Drive and the bridge over the Creek. Immediately after the Creek, you will make a sharp right turn onto a two-lane paved road. Turn left down onto the IRWD campus just before you get to the barrier.
There is usually plenty of parking since there is an overflow lot in addition to the paved lot right by the restroom building.
What Should I Bring?
There is never any admission to a Duck Club event, and we don't have dues at this point. We appreciate small cash donations in addition to the food you bring. We will have beverages (you can bring your own if there is something non-alcoholic and special you want to drink), and we will have paper goods and dinnerware. There will be an opportunity to order Voter Registration kits and Bulldoze the Budget Signs.
