COMMUNITY GROUPS

Community groups are at the core of Indivisible activism on the North Coast. In these groups, you'll meet friends and neighbors committed to defending democracy and opposing authoritarianism, bigotry, and corruption. You'll plan actions based on specific outcomes.

When you sign up for INCO, we'll add you to the Community Group of your choice. Our leaders will notify you by email of upcoming meetings and events.

Every few months, we also plan regionwide events where community groups gather to share ideas and strategies.

RECENT HIGHLIGHTS

Manzanita and Cannon Beach INCO members now work together as a merged Community Group (CG) - the Upper Left Coast. Members weathered stormy weather hosting their information table at Cannon Beach’s Twelve Days of Earth Day street fair April 22. They turned out in support of the Cannon Beach Inclusivity resolution that passed on May 2.

The Washington Peninsula CG has sent out approx 400 postcards, made 300 phone calls to local constituents, held two rallys and an Earth Day plant exchange and organized a Town Hall with nine speakers in just over 2 months. Artists on the team created a full-size representation of our Congresswoman (who will attend area events). An ACLU resistance subgroup met with the County Sheriff and ICE agents.

Members marched in the Loyalty Day parade on May 7. The first dozen marchers got a pin that says, "I pledge allegiance to the earth and all the flora and fauna...." They handed out pocket constitutions, voter registration forms, and activism call sheet along the parade route. Publicity has been wide ranging including full page write ups and over a dozen references in multiple newspapers, 40+ community flyers and a radio show interview. They are collaborating with Willapa Resistance, Pacific County Democrats and Living Liberally members and sharing Facebook activism. Two members will be registering as candidates for public office on the November ballot.


Next meeting: Sun, May 21 at noon, Ilwaco Community Building (next to library). Agenda: national activism versus state, county and local.

Astoria outcome teams are planning strategies to get out the vote, host events, expand the base, oppose gerrymandering, and encourage individual action.

Seaside/Gearhart outcome teams are working to encourage individual resistance, get out the vote, demand truth & transparency, and support candidates who oppose the Trump agenda. At their May 11 meeting, they'll work on building the base, voter registration, and encouraging civic engagement within the schools.
