The purpose of IndivisibleNWIL is to RESIST the Trump Agenda. The resistance will be evidenced through active participation in various educational and issue-related activities and trainings, facilitated through the groups which make up the organizational structure of IndivisibleNWIL: Diversity, Education, Immigration, Environment, Healthcare/Political Action, and Communication/Media/Public Relations.



Here’s what’s next for Indivisible:

  1. Going on offense in the House. Now that Democrats have the majority in the House, we’ve got something we haven’t had in a long time: POWER. We have the power to choose which bills get votes, and we’re categorizing them into two buckets: “messaging” bills and “must-pass” bills. In addition, House Democrats now have the POWER to hold the Trump administration accountable through oversight and investigations (subpoena power, investigatory power, congressional-hearings power and more!).
  2. Making gains in states to save democracy. Right now, there’s a huge opportunity for us to resist Trump and fight for our progressive vision at the state level. Our efforts will begin early in 2019 when state legislatures are sworn in.
  3. Continuing defense in the Senate. Republicans still control the Senate, and they’ll keep pushing Trump’s agenda. House Democrats will play a critical role in defending against further harm.


SOCIAL MEDIA GUIDELINES

A few guidelines for the use of social media…

As our goals state, “In order to work together to achieve this goal (Trump resistance), we must model the values of inclusion, respect, and fairness.”

While it’s tempting to focus on the character flaws of our opponents (and we certainly can question ethics issues), let’s keep our focus on issues and actions.

Please refrain from using any hateful speech or profanity.

Don’t just spread information. Be careful and skeptical. We certainly don’t want anyone to use our website to discredit our movement. If we post anything that is unsubstantiated, then we run that risk.

Don’t engage in argument on either Twitter or Facebook with anyone over our site. If you’d like to argue, which you are entitled to do, please use private chats, so that you won’t be speaking for the entirety of our group.
