Indivisible is a grassroots movement that emerged after the 2016 presidential election based on a guide written by former congressional staffers. It is composed of independent groups in virtually every legislative district throughout the county, that work to pressure their Congressional Representatives to vote no on legislation that enables President Trump’s agenda.
After the 2016 presidential election, a handful of former congressional staffers wrote a guide about how to influence congresspeople based on their experience working in Congress. They published it online where people downloaded it and formed groups with their friends and neighbors to implement it’s ideas. The guide can be found here: https://www.indivisibleguide.com/guide/
Yes, we started by taking the ideas in the Indivisible Guide and applying them to our Minnesota State Legislature. We have evolved somewhat in our practices based on our experience with the legislature, but stopping legislation that enables the Trump agenda is still core to what we do.
After you sign up, we recommend that you join our Facebook Group (you’ll find the link after you complete the sign up). We also recommend you download our app (you’ll find info about that on our Facebook Page). Through Facebook notifications and through the app, we will notify you when there is an action you can take that will have an impact. This might be calling a legislator, attending an event, attending a legislative committee hearing, or helping to organize something.
You can be involved as little or as much as you want. Through our coordinated effort, you can have a real impact by spending as little as two minutes a day making a call to a legislator based on our daily Call to Action. If you’d like to be more fully engaged, we have several opportunities to help organize the effort both online and in person.
