Indivisible Warren PA held its regular bi-monthly meeting Thursday, July 26.

The group welcomed Jane Dunshie of the League of Women Voters Warren PA. Jane explained that the LWV was established in 1920 and has been an activist, grassroots organization whose leaders believe that voters should play a critical role in democracy.

Organized in Warren in 1962, the LWV provides a forum and sponsors local debates with a balanced format between candidates in a non-partisan manner. The league promotes voter registration and encourages community participation. They only speak on issues that they have studied and formalized.

The group also welcomed Aaron Stearns, the newly-elected chair of the Warren County Democratic Party. Aaron attends the Pennsylvania State Committee meetings and is actively working towards “party building” in the Warren County area. Under Aaron’s leadership, the local committee members are striving to strengthen the Democratic Party by sponsoring various functions, promoting candidates, and registering/meeting voters through phone banking and canvassing. His goals are to reach Democrats throughout the area and provide education on the values of the Democratic Party.

As well as electing officials that rightly serve the public, the Pennsylvania Democratic Party is dedicated to fighting for the democratic ideal that, in America, everyone has a right to go as far as their natural abilities and perseverance will take them.

Aaron believes that strengthening labor unions, providing support to the needs of lower-income workers and assisting the poor are valuable principles of the Democratic Party as well as affordable health care and protecting the rights of women.

Indivisible is a progressive movement in United States politics, initiated as a reaction to the 2016 election. The goal of Indivisible is to “save American democracy” and “resume the project of creating a more humane America instead of a corporate plutocracy.”

Indivisible Warren PA meets at the Emanuel United Church of Christ, 1710 Pennsylvania Ave E, Warren, at 6:30 p.m. on the second and fourth Thursday of each month. To be added to our email list, contact Karen Black at kblack@atlanticbb.net.
