The Indivisible Project – Wednesday, September 13

Last December, former Congressional staffers wrote and posted a guide for political action called INDIVISIBLE that quickly went viral, ultimately shared by millions.

The guide was based in large measure on the effective techniques used to organize disgruntled Americans that became the Tea Party which helped put dozens of new conservative members in Congress in the 2010 elections and beyond.

On September 13th, The Common Good presents a rare opportunity to meet Indivisible founders Ezra Levin and Leah Greenberg. As their guide gained exposure, their “toolbox” has quickly transformed into the beginnings of a powerful movement, as hundreds of thousands of individuals around the nation clamored for a way to express themselves and create change. Any citizen wishing to affect public policy should know these powerful tools for democratic action.

The Indivisible Project, has since grown into a nonprofit grassroots organization that provides resources and connects supporters across the country.

With several branches located in every House District, the group emphasizes targeting members of Congress and demonstrating that Americans are ready to come together to affect political change on an unprecedented scale.
