About Snohomish County Indivisible:
Snohomish County Indivisible is part of a national grassroots movement working to elect progressive leaders, realize bold progressive policies, and build our democracy. Founded in 2017, we are a local chapter of national Indivisible which was galvanized after the 2016 election. We formed under the guidance and principles set forth in the Indivisible Guide. The Guide was written by a group of former Congressional staffers who observed the successes of the Tea Party movement and used that success as a basis for outlining steps to enact political change at the grassroots level. Since 2016, Indivisible has grown to thousands of leaders across the country with over a million dedicated activists. In 2019, Leah Greenberg and Ezra Levin, co-founders and co-executive directors of Indivisible published a book entitled, We Are Indivisible: A Blueprint for Democracy After Trump. This book tells the story of the movement and the authors offer a behind-the-scenes look at how change comes to Washington, whether Washington wants it or not. And they explain how we’ll win the coming fight for the future of American democracy. We Are Indivisible isn’t a book of platitudes about hope; it’s a steely-eyed guide to people power—how to find it, how to build it and how to use it to usher in the post-Trump era.
As a group, we stand with Black Lives Matter and fight at all times for racial justice and immigrant rights. We strive to be inclusive and welcoming of others especially from marginalized communities. We fight for a more just and equitable society. Our group is comprised of members residing in the 21st, 32nd, 38th, 39th, and 44th Washington State Legislative Districts and Congressional Districts 1 and 2.
By standing Indivisible, we influence our Members of Congress in specific ways, such as:
Visiting District Offices. We meet with the staff of Senators Murray and Cantwell, as well as Representatives Larsen and DelBene to share issues and let them know we are concerned and active.
Making Phone Calls. We make sure our voices are heard by making phone calls, sometimes multiple calls on an important issue.
Attending Town Halls. Our senators and representatives regularly hold public in-district events to show that they are listening to constituents. We make sure our voices are heard by attending these events.
Attending Other Local Events. We support other political action groups and attend marches and protests, especially those where our Senators and Representatives will be in attendance.
We also work locally by supporting and influencing the election of state legislative officials who support our progressive values. In addition, we work to support the passage of progressive legislation in our state. We do this by:
Endorsing local and statewide political candidates and supporting our endorsed candidates by doorbelling, sign waving, letter writing and post-carding in support of local candidates.
Calling or writing our senators and representatives in support of specific pieces of legislation in the current legislative session.
