Indivisible49 is a grassroots political group organized for the purpose of resisting the Trump Administration’s dismantling of our civil liberties, social protections, and democratic institutions and to unseat Darrell Issa in the 2018 election. We are a group of like-minded individuals dedicated to local organizing and action with the goal of defeating or delaying any policy that harms our society or our citizens.
We believe in the principles of inclusion and diversity. All people who are willing to fight against authoritarianism and resist the Trump agenda are welcome, regardless of age, race, sex, gender expression, sexual orientation, disability, religion, or political party.
We are Dedicated to Peaceful, Nonviolent Resistance.
We recognize that some of us will be more harmed by the Trump administration than others, particularly people of color, immigrants, the disabled, the LGBT community, women, and especially those whose identities intersect across groups. We believe in educating ourselves, listening, and working to act in solidarity as both allies and activists.
What We Are Not
Although we believe that policy development is important, positive policy making is not the focus of this group. We encourage all members to continue their efforts in other arenas to provide a positive policy alternative to the Trump agenda, while this group will focus on providing a strong defensive opposition. Although understanding the process by which we arrived at our current political situation will be important in ensuring we don't repeat our mistakes, this group is organized around resistance and action, not argument or the assigning of blame.
We do not and will never advocate violence as a means of achieving any of our political goals. Although in-person protest, direct action, and civil disobedience are important tools for resistance, we firmly reject violence in any form.
We strongly believe in the principle of free speech, but we reject bigotry in all forms and will not tolerate hate speech or harassment.
Donald Trump's agenda is taking America backwards and must be stopped. We have come together to tell our Congressman, Darrell Issa, how we, his constituents want him to vote on Trump's policies. We want Rep. Issa to know that we are watching his votes and we expect him to represent us or he risks losing reelection in 2018.
