Where: Federal Building (Downtown) @ 1919 Smith Street, Houston
The night before the House of Representatives takes a somber vote to impeach Trump, we'll head to every congressional office and public square to declare that Nobody Is Above the Law as representatives finalize their positions and senators look on. Thousands of people will take to the streets in every state of the union, at over 600 planned events. The events in support of impeachment and removal from office will take place on Tuesday, December 17, at 5:30 p.m.
In Houston, we will gather at 1919 Smith Street, outside the Mickey Leland Federal Building where Ted Cruz has his office. This event will be peaceful, law-abiding, and family friendly. Not in Houston? Check out events being held in Conroe and Galveston.
Parking: Central Parking is directly across Smith Street from the Federal Building. The St. Joseph lot is close by, at the corner of Milam and St. Joseph Parkway.
Metro: The Federal Building is just a short walk from Metro’s Downtown Transit Center, where the light rail and a number of bus lines stop.
Lights: It will be dark! Plan to bring a flashlight or use your phone as a light. Some people are downloading a candlelight app for their phones.
Posters: Many people will bring posters, banners, and American flags. Messages include “We the People” & “Trump is not above the law” & “Impeach and Remove” & “Defend Democracy”.
We are grateful to the team that's organized this event for the people of Houston. ♥
This is our time to stand up for our democracy. See you there.

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.
When: Saturday, October 19, 2019 at 12 PM – 2:30 PM

NOTE: This event is open to all ages. Brazoria County has 5 generations of organizers with experience level from newbie to expert. As we learn to navigate through intergenerational organizing, please keep in mind that the youth have a seat at the head of the table and allow their voices to be heard.
When: Tuesday, September 24, 2019 at 6 PM – 8 PM
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!
