About

In the wake of Donald Trump’s election, many of us were asking ourselves “what do we do now?”

For a few progressive folks in Charlottesville, the Indivisible Guide began to answer that question.  The document, written by former Congressional staffers, laid out a plan for how ordinary citizens, like us, could effect real change in Congress by pressuring our elected officials to resist Trump’s racist, regressive agenda.

 
 

Empowered by that document,
we held our first meeting on January 28th, 2017

and were blown away by the hundreds of local people who crowded into the room to launch our part of the nationwide resistance to the Trump agenda. Together, we put our legislators on speed dial and committed to using our citizen power to put pressure on them. We had no idea then that ours would be one of thousands of groups across the country that would grind the Trump agenda to a halt. We also had no idea that our town would have to face hate groups emboldened by Trump’s white supremacist rhetoric.

 
 

We’ve faced many challenges over the past year, but we have also been inspired by the many people who have made “defending democracy” a way of life. We’ve marched, demonstrated, made calls, written letters, and gotten out the vote; we’ve held town halls and trainings for thousands of citizen activists. We are part of a movement that is reshaping American politics, and we are committed to continuing the fight.

The bigger we are, the louder our voice. Join us by signing up below.
