Mobilized in response to the 2016 election, Indivisible North Metro focuses on improving our community and encouraging civic engagement.
Most of us have never been involved in an active political group, and most of us did not know each other before joining together. At our first meeting in February 2017, we expected 5-6 people would attend, but instead 17 people came.
From there, we've grown to over 300 members across the North Metro Twin Cities area. Our rapid growth demonstrates that this area is not owned by any one particular political party. Progressivism has a voice from Brooklyn Park to Bethel, Arden Hills to Zimmerman, and throughout the North Metro.
While we may disagree with many of the policies endorsed by our current representatives (both federal and state), we love our country, and our communities. Living in the North Metro means that we do not live in a political bubble, but rather, we interact with individuals with different political viewpoints than us on a daily basis. This is a source of strength not a weakness. We seek to ensure that our federal, state, and local representatives are accountable to all of their constituents, rather than their party affiliation or personal beliefs. We are not for or against any one individual or political party. We are non-violent and engage respectfully.
Our mission statement:
We are a non-violent, progressive, and locally focused Indivisible group. We advocate for policies that protect and build a stronger, healthier and more inclusive Minnesota and actively resist policies that threaten these values. Above all, we seek to provide a supportive and energizing space so each member is motivated to continue to persist.
As a group we may not agree on every issue but we are united under a specific set of values. We use these values to determine when action is necessary.
