What: Indivisible Houston October Monthly Meeting Presents: Community Justice Action Fund
As America grapples with widespread gun violence, organizers of all walks of life are working to fight the epidemic impacting communities across the United States.
However, we must also ask ourselves important yet difficult decisions about the gun violence prevention movement. Are we intersectional in our approach or only elevating an isolated perspective on the gun violence narrative? Are we working together to ensure communities of color impacted by gun violence have real representation? Have we put gun violence survivors and victims first?
Indivisible Houston is proud to welcome Community Justice Action Fund for our next general meeting, a special workshop for organizers, advocates, and activists seeking justice in the gun violence prevention movement. We welcome Erica Ford, a peacemaker and heart leader who brought therapeutic services and a steep decrease in gun violence to her own neighborhood in Jamaica, Queens through a new, transformative way of addressing the issue.
If fighting gun violence and making sure the coalition against gun violence is truly inclusive to address the entirety of the issue, this meeting will serve as a starting point for making that a reality.
We are honored to be able to host it, and invite you with open arms to attend. Snacks and Beverages will be provided. All are welcome.

Where: 1414 Wirt Rd, Houston, TX 77055
What: With 2020 14 months away, key issues have become a centerpiece of the debate over the presidency, with none larger than healthcare. Yet healthcare plans that are similar between candidates may take nuanced positions to establish slight differences, or may be built on entirely different philosophies.
Join Indivisible Houston at our next general meeting Tuesday, September 24th, 6:00-8:00 PM at Trini Mendenhall Community Center located at 1414 Wirt Road to learn about the specific differences in healthcare plans from 2020 candidates with healthcare expert Ken Janda, who has successfully worked on both the private and public sides of healthcare and has successfully facilitated changes in policy with Harris County Public Health.
We will also hear from members of DSA’s grass roots Medicare for All team on what Houstonians are saying about Medicare for All, as well as Medicare for All Advocate Ira Dember. Ira is a proud Indivisible with keen insight into the healthcare system who makes a passionate case for why Medicare for All is the right answer to our health crisis. Ira has been in the streets almost every single week of the Trump Regime as part of the ongoing, relentless weekly John Cornyn protest 11:45-1:00 at 5300 Memorial Drive.
Finally, we'll hear some from experts who are working on the Stop I-45 Campaign, including upcoming meetings and public hearings and the impact the project will have on the Houston community.
See you soon!
