Open letter to Ted Yoho; member of the Freedom Caucus who wishes to do a Full Repeal of the ACA. From your Gainesville Constituent, Sarah Rockwell, Ph.D.

Mr. Yoho,

Please don’t take away my son’s therapy.

My son has Autism. He is an amazing kid. He loves building things – especially electronics – and he always draws and writes out plans for the things he builds. His favorite classes in school are art and science. He is his little sister’s biggest supporter and helper. He loves animals. He adores Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings and can tell you every way in which the books and movies differ. He is smart and funny and loving and kind. And without ACA he’d be a mess. Read more

CALL TO ACTION: SUBMIT A LETTER TO THE EDITOR TO THE GAINESVILLE SUN

Submit a Letter to the Editor to the Gainesville Sun. As we prepare for the last scheduled Town Hall of this term in Gainesville, we need to make our concerns known. Letters to the editor are written by people in the community, just like you, to comment on issues that concern residents. We urge you to write about your experiences at the last town hall meeting, the news coverage that followed, and what you want to address at this Saturday’s town hall. Read more

Indivisible Gainesville Needs Your Help

The admin team has heard your feedback. Many of you said that you would like more transparency and more participation from the group as a whole. Our challenge to you is to volunteer for a committee. There are over 1500 people in this group and only 7 admin support people. Unfortunately, a lot of the work to keep Indivisible Gainesville going is falling on the shoulders of our admin team.

From Us to You: We Hear You

We all came together and formed the Indivisible Gainesville chapter to influence our Members of Congress (MoCs) and preserve democracy. The main charge of the Indivisible Group is that we are polite, respectful, and persistent in gaining face time with our MoCs. On Saturday, March 4th, we accomplished just that. Through your letters, phone calls, office visits, and the diligent work by our admin team, we got Representative Yoho to hold a town hall with a Gainesville address. We got the congressman to hold a town hall outside of his usual format, which does not typically include any follow up questions. We got him to advertise that he was holding a town hall with greater than 24 hours notice. All of these accomplishments should not be overlooked. Read more
