Ready for 2020 and beyond!
Our victory in the US House of Representatives in 2018 would not have happened without you, without Indivisible! We are now preparing for the most important year yet!
In 2018 we reached our first goal and flipped the House of Representatives! Indivisible rolled out the 2.0 Guide with the main focus on pressuring the new House of Representatives (our House of Representatives!) to adopt progressive legislation that reflects our values and to conduct proper oversight of the administration’s flagrant abuses of power. Its second focus is on state legislatures and collaborating with other Indivisibles across the state to have a greater impact. Remember, the Republicans have used their control of the state legislatures and governorships to wrest control out of the hands of voters. We have been working extra hard to get it back and to also protect ourselves from the harmful legislation coming out of Washington. You can check out the new guides here.
To prepare for the upcoming election year battles, Indivisible groups in Massachusetts are leading the way! Indivisible MA, the umbrella organization for all groups in MA, formed in 2017 and is now rolling out a new, improved structure to help us collaborate on state and national election issues in 2020. One of the challenges that Indivisible MA has encountered is contacting all of the concerned individuals who consider themselves part of Indivisible. They need to update their list and in order to get the input of everyone working so hard on the ground. If you consider yourself a part of this movement, either with Indivisible Outer Cape or with another group, please reply to this short membership survey and then you will be able to see and vote on the new governance structure and participate in future collaborations!
In order to preserve our democracy, Indivisible Outer Cape (IOC) supports and empowers people who live on the Outer Cape and facilitates their political engagement.
Indivisible Outer Cape is a non-partisan local entity, affiliated with the nationwide Indivisible network. Our members are a diverse group of citizens and U.S. residents who want fairness, decency and equality to dominate our country’s discourse and policies. Our goals concern protecting DEMOCRACY, EQUALITY for all, our HEALTH, and our ENVIRONMENT. We believe our participation in activism and the political process are key to achieving these goals. We will support our representatives when they stand for these ideals and hold them accountable when they do not. Some of us are first-time activists and others have been at the forefront of civic action for decades. We learn from and support each other.
We Take Action
Since inauguration day in 2017, Indivisible groups have been showing up en masse to congressional offices, organizing events and flooding the congressional phone lines. We are resisting ‘Trumpism’ because of the threat it poses to our democracy – and resistance is working. We take action by calling our Members of Congress (MoCs) and other elected officials regularly, participating in rallies and marches, initiating postcard-writing events, providing educational resources, and much more. Since our victories in the 2018 midterm elections, we will now be focusing on pressuring our new House of Representatives to introduce new and progressive legislation that reflects our values. Despite the fact that no legislation can be enacted without the Senate and the President’s approval, Indivisible feels that this is the best way to ensure a platform for the 2020 election. Additionally, it is vitally important that Indivisible groups across the country work on strengthening progressive state legislatures. This website will provide you with information and resources to support you as you join us in these efforts.
