The Senate GOP is trying to sneak an ACA repeal into their tax plan.
We were there. Only one person out of nearly 90 clapped in support of the bill. THIS in CLAY CENTER, KANSAS.
"He stopped short of promising to vote against the tax reform bill that passed the U.S. House last week, but Sen. Jerry Moran, R-KS, said he will not support a tax bill that just helps the wealthy." — Salina Journal, 11/25/17

November 15th was National "Thanks, Birth Control" Day. Women and families, who rely on access to affordable birth control, rallied at #HandsOffMyBC events outside of U.S. Health and Human Services offices in five cities: Atlanta, GA, Dallas, TX, Denver, CO, Washington, D.C. and Kansas City, MO. Attendees united in solidarity with fellow Americans hurt by President Trump’s dangerous policies and demanded that this administration stop their dangerous attacks on Americans’ reproductive health decisions.
Indivisible KC joined the ACLU of Missouri, ACLU of Kansas, ACLU KU (student chapter), Planned Parenthood Great Plains, NARAL Pro-Choice of Missouri, and Indivisible LFK to denounce President Trump’s executive order that allows employers to remove birth control coverage from their health insurance plans on the basis of religious or moral objection. Thank you to everyone who came out to the event! And ... extra special thanks go out to the Handmaids for braving the chilly winds, our emcee for leading us in several rousing chants, and our panel of inspiring speakers.
Thank you to everyone who joined us on the one-year anniversary of the 2016 presidential election.
It was gratifying to be able to celebrate your work in advocacy and activism.
We began the meeting with a few welcoming words from Leslie, an Indivisible Kansas City Board Member, along with some background on what Indivisible KC is all about. After the opening comments, Rabbi Alpert of Congregation Kol Ami led the group in a moment of silence. Next we heard from four Indivisible KC members who shared their personal stories of activism; We learned what it was like to attend a healthcare rally, visit the offices of Members of Congress, and make MoC phone calls ... all for the first time. We also heard from one of the contributors of our ACA Stories Scrapbooks, an extensive project launched last January.
We were pleased to welcome a few new members and reconnect with those who joined us at various times throughout the year. During the discussion portion of the meeting, long-standing IKC members and new participants alike addressed two questions: “What brought you into activism?” and “How will our activism change the future?” This was both a great chance for those who are now confident in their activist shoes to compare notes, as well as an opportunity to impart some wisdom to newer members who might be feeling a bit tentative.
Reverend Howard of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference of Greater Kansas City closed out the evening with a rousing speech and urged us to keep fighting because after all, “what else are you gonna do?” Silence and complacency are just not viable options.
For us at Indivisible Kansas City, it has been encouraging and inspiring to bring together people with a shared purpose and to be able to provide support to this “vibrant community of angelic troublemakers.”
