We Did It!
Our victory in the US House of Representatives would not have happened without you, without Indivisible!
Just because this first battle is won, does not mean we are finished. We reached our first goal and are now better prepared for the long haul. Indivisible 2.0 is here! Its main focus is 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 need to work extra hard to get it back and to also protect ourselves from harmful legislation coming out of Washington.

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.
