Moving Forward

Our gratitude (and we’re not finished yet!)

ICG leaders are so very thankful for all our MANY volunteers for their commitment to the 2020 Election.  Today, we want to take a moment to say “thank you!” 

We’ve rallied, written letters and postcards, done phonebanking and texting, but we’re not quite finished yet...and we still need you!  With Election Day less than one week away, there’s not a moment to waste.  We are in this together.  Can you rise to the challenge? 

We’re joining Indivisible Oregon over the next five days to phonebank like crazy to swing states. There are phonebanking trainings and events every day leading up to Nov.3 - take your pick!

Resistance Actions During/After Elections

If Trump declares victory before all the votes are counted, makes unfounded claims that the election was “stolen,” tries to stop votes from being counted, or otherwise threatens the integrity of the election or the peaceful transition of power, mass grassroots mobilization will occur around the country. It’s quite possible that one or more of these triggers will occur immediately on/after November 3, and that the first mobilization will be called for Wednesday, November 4.

We are committed to nonviolence and to personal safety. We expect all participants to act nonviolently and lawfully at all times and to seek to de-escalate any potential confrontation with those who disagree with us. We expect all participants to respect one another and look out for one another.


Stay tuned in, and be ready to act:

ICG leadership will communicate plans for rallies/other actions in Hood River and/or The Dalles as developments unfold. Communication will be via ICG’s Facebook page and by “emergency alert” newsletter. Any gatherings will include social distancing and masks, and safety will be part of the planning.
