2) Milburn Short Hills Action Network Event: The Milburn Short Hills Action Network invites NJ activists to a special New Jersey session of a workshop, Words that Win on March 6th 10 am-noon. They recently attended a very beneficial workshop based on a research-proven methodology of communication and have set up an introductory webinar session for NJ grassroots team leaders and activists.

This workshop will focus on developing the most effective messaging for democratic candidates and policies that can be used by candidates, nonprofits and grassroots organizations getting their messages out to the public, or individuals who are engaging in social media.

3) Feedback on the IGSV Mission and Vision: A small group of our members is in the process of formalizing bylaws. We will be rolling these out over the next several weeks. The first item that we would like feedback on are Mission and Vision statements. Please read the statements below and comment by email to indivisiblegsv@gmail.com.

Mission: Indivisible: Garden State Values is a community organization that seeks to influence our elected representatives to enact policies that are evidence-based and equitable. We offer programming to educate our members about issues, representatives, and candidates; calls to action to enable coordinated work that is more effective than individual actions; and online and in-person space to build connections among neighbors who have similar values.

Vision: Build political power to elect and support representatives who value Truth and Equality.

4) Indivisible National Activist Call: Indivisible has its next monthly activist call this Thursday, March 4 2021 at 8 pm ET. All group leaders, group members and other Indivisible activists are welcome. At these calls, Indivisible provides an overview of their current top federal policies and where they stand in Congress, discuss upcoming Indivisible campaigns and actions, and more.
