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.

H.R. 1: Strengthening our Democracy

Donald Trump’s presidency and attempts to steal the 2020 election brought into sharp focus the importance of preserving and protecting our democracy against ongoing attempts to erode it. While structural problems with our democracy are longstanding, Trump and his GOP enablers have added a sickening layer of corruption, as they work to further suppress the vote, profit off of the Presidency, and attack essential democratic norms and the rule of law. Democrats have an opportunity to push back and to change course. 

Without a functional democracy in which everyone is included and represented, we can’t achieve any of our other progressive goals. All the issues we care about deeply: health care, immigration, ending wars, racial justice, climate change—fixing these things requires a democracy that is responsive to the people, not the powerful and wealthy.

We’ve also seen how hard Republicans are working to suppress the vote, specifically to disenfranchise Black people and people of color. It is crucial that Democrats show their commitment to fight even harder to ensure that everyone has the unimpeded right to participate in our democracy. 

In the 117th Congress, Democrats’ first order of business was introducing H.R. 1, the For the People Act, signaling that democracy reform is their number one priority. With our democracy in crisis, we need a robust reform package that targets voter suppression, gerrymandering, money in politics, corruption, and more. 

Indivisible’s Democracy Reform Agenda: D.C. Statehood

In addition to passing H.R. 1, we believe that statehood for the District of Columbia is essential for establishing a truly representative democracy. A historically-Black city whose political power has long been denied by conservative politicians, D.C. statehood is both a crucial racial justice and structural democracy reform. Read about H.R. 51, the D.C. statehood bill, and then call your representatives and demand they support the D.C. statehood bill.

What is H.R. 1, the For the People Act?

H.R. 1, alongside the D.C. Statehood bill and the John Lewis Voting Rights Act, are the cornerstones of the necessary reforms we need to unrig our democracy and make it work for all. H.R. 1 includes the following:

Voter empowerment and access.

Through measures such as automatic voter registration, same-day registration, restoring the Voting Rights Act, protecting against improper purging of voter rolls, requiring states to upgrade and secure their election systems, restoring voting rights to those with past criminal convictions, providing adequate early voting opportunities, and preventing partisan gerrymandering through independent redistricting commissions, H.R. 1 helps ensure that everyone is included and represented in our democracy, and has unimpeded opportunities to participate.

Money in politics.

A constitutional amendment is needed to overturn the chaos that Citizens United and related decisions unleashed into our campaign finance system. H.R. 1 starts that process immediately. Additionally, it further stems the tide of big money in our politics by amplifying small-dollar donations through public financing, encouraging small-dollar donations through tax incentives, eliminating “dark money” by requiring disclosure of all political spending (including online ads), cutting off cooperation between candidates and super PACs, and empowering the Federal Election Commission to truly enforce campaign finance law.

Ethics and corruption.

Trump and his cronies regularly engaged in self-dealing, corruption, and conflicts of interest, without a single rebuke from the Republican-controlled Congress. H.R. 1 cracks down by making sure that ethics rules apply to all government officials - including the President. This means demanding disclosure of and divestment from financial interests that pose conflicts of interest, and then for the rest of the executive branch locking the “revolving door” of lobbyists and government officials, prohibiting bribery, and demanding full disclosure of information revealing potential and actual conflicts of interest. 

Call your Representative and ask them to commit to voting YES on H.R. 1

Passing H.R. 1, the For the People Act, is an essential first step to achieving any of our policy goals during the Biden administration. We must begin to unrig our democracy so every American has an equitable voice in our government.

Call your Representative and demand they commit to voting YES to H.R. 1 when it comes to the House floor.
