We are Indivisible Northampton, a local chapter of the progressive grassroots political and social advocacy organization Indivisible, the creators of the INDIVISIBLE GUIDE. We are located in Western Massachusetts. We are active members of #TheResistance who stand together to oppose Donald Trump’s presidency and his far right, racist, fascist leaning agenda.
As a nation, many of us woke up on November 9, 2016, only to see that fear, divisiveness and very likely some Russian intervention had helped Donald Trump, the single most unqualified major party candidate in history, win the Presidency.
Now as one of thousands of groups across the country, we stand Indivisible with our values, our people and our country.
Meetings are open to the public.
We meet the 1st and 3rd Monday each month : at 7:00 PM
Meeting Location: 25 Mountain Laurel Path, Florence, MA
Meeting 7:30- 8:45
We often have speakers… please check the calendar.

What We Do
As members of our local communities, we take action in local politics to hold our elected officials accountable to all of their constituents and thank them when they do the right thing. We work with other progressive groups to help spread our message of unity and progressive values. Together we will win.
What Is The Indivisible Project?
The Indivisible Project is a registered 501c(4) nonprofit.
A few days after the election of Donald Trump, two former congressional staffers talked about what every progressive in America was talking about: what do we do now? We saw energy building to resist, but it wasn’t directed.
Sign a petition? Call Congress? How does this actually translate into taking down Donald Trump’s agenda?
It hit us. We’d seen a model for success for how local activism can affect real change in Congress. If the Tea Party was able to take on a historically popular President Obama with a Democratic supermajority to slow and sometimes defeat his federal agenda, we can surely take on Donald Trump and the members of Congress who would do his bidding.
So we wrote a Google Doc and put it online December 14. The roadmap we laid out wasn’t rocket science:
- Tea Party-inspired strategy: locally focused, defensive congressional advocacy to protect our values (without the vitriol).
- How your member of Congress thinks: reelection, reelection, reelection — and how to use that to save democracy.
- Identify or organize your local group: building constituent power through organically-formed, locally-led groups.
- Local advocacy tactics that actually work: focusing on your three members of Congress through town halls, other public events, district office visits, and mass calls.
