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.

JOINT STATEMENT: Trump’s “Emergency” Is An End-Run Around Democracy



WASHINGTON — The following organizations, working in coalition to reform and strengthen U.S. democracy, released the following statement:

“Donald Trump’s invocation of an emergency to justify a border wall is an attack on our democracy. It is an end-run around Congress, the democratic process, and the will of voters; it represents yet another step toward autocracy.

“This invocation of emergency powers with such clearly fraudulent justification is a dangerous precedent that could be used to justify almost limitless future abuses of presidential power, resulting in far-reaching harm to us all, especially communities disproportionately at risk.”
