WHAT IS INDIVISIBLE?
The Indivisible movement rose out of the ashes of the November 2016 election. A group of former congressional staffers wrote an Indivisible guide for people who wanted to oppose the Trump administration. The guide is a set of strategies designed to hold our Members of Congress accountable with consistent and unrelenting (and successful!) actions. In January 2017, more than 3,800 groups around the country identifying as “Indivisibles” had formed and declared their support for the movement.
WHO ARE WE?
Oregon District 2 Indivisible was one of the first Indivisible groups to form in early 2017. It was co-founded by two Ashland residents, actor/director Jessica Sage and musician Bret Levick, after they heard about the Indivisible Guide. The first general meetings drew hundreds of people, who flooded the Ashland Library, then the Unitarian-Universalist church. Sage and Levick were stunned by the strong response and realized that they needed to organize a structure to meet the needs of the rapidly growing group.
ORD2 Indivisible is made up of some 2,000 activists living in Oregon’s sprawling Congressional District 2. (Other Indivisible groups are active in Grants Pass, Bend, Hood River, Portland and other parts of Oregon.) ORD2 Indivisible is now a nonprofit 501(c)3 and 501(c)4, and has a Board, a Steering Committee, and 12 teams of volunteers.
At ORD2, we organize rallies, make Calls to Action (CTAs), produce a weekly newsletter, collaborate with other groups on shared priorities, meet with our Members of Congress (MoC’s), engage the media, and provide training, information, and other resources to strengthen our activism.
