NYCD16 Indivisible was created in the middle of a snowstorm in January of 2017, when a bunch of stressed out friends got together to discuss how to resist the Trump agenda. Using the Indivisible guide as inspiration, the group was born. We’ve had monthly meetings ever since then, and the group has grown tremendously from the original 50 people who turned up in that snowstorm. We now have well over a 1000 people on our email list and 700 in our Facebook group. We have multiple active committees, we’ve organized town halls, forums, trainings, and we’ve worked on many campaigns both locally and nationally. NYCD16 Indivisible played an important role in helping elect local Democrats in the 2017 election by phone banking, canvassing, organizing days of action, and just assisting in any way needed. We’ve had lots of successes and some failures, but we keep getting stronger and stronger. We are proud to be part of the Indivisible movement!
NYCD16 Indivisible’s mission is to encourage and enable constituents of New York’s 16th Congressional District, which includes the northern Bronx and lower Westchester, to take political action designed to resist and defeat the extremist Republican and Trump agendas by engaging our elected officials, particularly our Members of Congress as well as our local and state officials.
OUR GUIDING PRINCIPLES
Inspired by the Indivisible Guide, and in alignment with a progressive agenda and to preserve our republic’s democracy, NYCD16 Indivisible will serve as an organizing home base and an operating conduit for members to take action, while embracing the values of inclusion, tolerance and fairness.
