Local organizers to host events during congressional recess to showcase benefits of active and inclusive governance
Washington, DC — Today, ahead of the one-year anniversary of President Biden signing the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) into law, Indivisible Civics is announcing the launch of its “Powering Progress” campaign to educate communities across the country about its benefits and showcase how a more inclusive federal government is solving big problems and building a better future for generations to come.
Indivisible organizers are already working to highlight just how timely and tangible the IRA’s benefits are for families and communities, including hosting town hall events with lawmakers, placing local billboards and newspaper ads, and publishing letters to the editor as part of a months-long pilot program. Last week, hundreds of organizers also joined Indivisible for a call officially launching the program nationwide, with more actions and events being planned locally during congressional recess in August.
In raising public awareness about the IRA, “Powering Progress” seeks to educate the American people about how its programs are creating millions of good-paying jobs, reducing home energy costs for working families, making healthcare and prescription drugs more affordable, and ensuring that the richest families and largest corporations pay their fair share of taxes.

“Although every household in America will benefit from the Inflation Reduction Act, few people know about it—and we’re working to change that,” said Mary Small, Indivisible’s Chief Strategy Officer. “We know that when we make folks aware of benefits like the Clean Energy Plan and lower healthcare costs, they’re supportive of it and more government action to improve their lives. By celebrating the concrete improvements in our communities as a result of the Inflation Reduction Act, ‘Powering Progress’ will not only increase the number of people who support an active and inclusive government, but also combat the far-right’s bad faith attempts to seed divide-and-conquer frames about who benefits from government action.”
