Local Indivisible groups build and wield power in ways that individuals can’t. To create change, you need the collective constituent power that comes with working together, as Indivisibles.

Indivisibles organize -- which means building power and flexing at key moments. Indivisible Groups take action in their communities, build collective purpose, and create change.

We make calls. We show up. We organize. And we’ve built lasting collective power across the country, in our home towns. We’re Indivisible.

We’re a grassroots movement of thousands of local Indivisible groups with a mission to elect progressive leaders, rebuild our democracy, and defeat the Trump agenda.

ENDORSED CANDIDATE

Arati Kreibich

State: New Jersey

Elected Office: U.S. Representative

Candidate District: NJ-05

Reason for Endorsement:

Arati Kreibich is a neuroscientist, a mother, a grassroots organizer, an immigrant, and a local elected official. In 2018, Arati knocked doors in New Jersey’s 5th Congressional District to make sure her district went blue. Now, she’s running for Congress herself, because NJ5 deserves a representative who will fight for our healthcare, our financial security and our planet's future, without seeking permission from corporate donors. 

The incumbent in NJ-05, Josh Gottheimer, has repeatedly sided with big-dollar donors over his constituents. He opposes health care for all, but accepts tens of thousands of dollars in campaign donations from health industry PACs. He refuses to support the Green New Deal, but takes money from big polluters like ExxonMobil and Chevron. Last summer, he led the charge to give more money to Trump’s deportation machine – the same machine that’s separating families at the border and in our communities. Representative Gottheimer started off 2020 with more of the same: by voting to bolster Trump’s illegitimate use of power to take America to the edge of war. 

Arati has shown us what a truly progressive, people-powered campaign looks like in the fifth district. Unlike her opponent, who has taken millions from Wall Street and voted to deregulate big banks, Arati is unafraid to take on the powers that be and will fight to improve the lives of working people. We’re excited to endorse her and to help finally elect a true progressive in New Jersey’s fifth.
