ACTION NOW
 
Indivisible's Priorities This Week
Trump Against the Planet. Indivisible advises how to fight back at the local level. Contact members of Trump's Advisory Council to protest Paris withdrawal.

Congress can rewrite Trump's destructive budget. Tell your Members of Congress to work out a bipartisan plan to serve all Americans.

Citizens United has enabled right-wing extremists and grifters to steal the Supreme Court seat, gut Obamacare, encourage voter suppression, cozy up to Russia, and devise a plan to govern for the benefit of the 1%. Tell your Members of Congress to stop Citizens United.
 
Resistance School
Learn practical and empowering skills to organize and make sustained change that advances values of fairness, equality, and inclusivity. Powerful video and discussion with INCO members.
