How to Take Part

  • Join us on social media! Check out the social media icons at the top right of each page on this site.
  • Another important way to help is to follow our Group Actions or subscribe to our Action Email. You can subscribe on any page of this site. Just look for the form below the social media icons on the right!
  • Often taking action is as easy as making phone calls to your members of Congress (sometimes you’ll see them called MoCs). Sometimes we’ll ask you to show up for an in-person event.
  • Another way to help is to spread the word. Share the Indivisible Guide and encourage your friends to join their local group (they can find theirs on the website). Invite your Eastside friends to join our group. Share our Group Actions.
  • Like our public Facebook Page and select to receive notifications from our team (How to enable notifications so that you don’t miss any action alerts).
  • Join our private Facebook Group and join the discussion about the many issues of interest to our community.

IE Teams

Defending our values against the Trump Administration is a big job!  To help with this, we have created a set of teams focused on specific areas.

While making calls and showing up at rallies is the most important way we can all contribute, if you want to get more involved, the next step is to join a team. We are organized into groups of people who focus on small tasks that add up to making a big difference.  See the Volunteer page to find a team(s) that might interest you!

Meetings

Team Meetings. Each team meets separately. Please email a team chair for information on their next meeting. Contact information on the Volunteer page.

Group Meetings. Indivisible Eastside meets monthly. These and other events are listed on the right side of pages on this site.

Security

As the Indivisible Guide says, “We do not yet know how Trump supporters will respond to organized shows of opposition.” It’s important to keep yourself and Indivisible Eastside as secure as possible. Please check out our security tips to protect yourself.

And finally…

Remember this is a MARATHON and not a sprint! In the words of the Indivisible National Team: “This is the long game. We are going to lose a lot. We are going to get good at losing…But while we are losing, something else is going to happen. We are going to keep raising our voices and slowly our representatives are going to start listening to us. We’ve seen it happen”.

We’re in this together!
