Recruiting for Your Indivisible Group

Indivisibles know that recruitment is a key component of building local power, but it is not always easy to meet and identify new potential activists or reactivate your existing list. It’s hard, intentional work (like anything that matters).

In addition to the guides below, Indivisible also holds live trainings sessions on recruitment and other issues. Please check the training calendar here to sign up for one of our upcoming trainings!

Indivisible Recruitment Guide

The goal of this guide is to provide Indivisibles with new ideas and the tools you need to build a stronger and bigger membership! You can do this!
