Indivisible Santa Barbara is part of a national movement inspired by indivisibleguide.com. (También en Español.) Groups exist in every state, and in almost every city.  (Not from Santa Barbara? Find your group here.) See our Indivisible Santa Barbara guiding principles here.

 


Indivisible Santa Barbara joined over 500 other organizations across the country on the evening of December 17 2019 to rally for the impeachment of President Trump, for obstruction of Congress and abuse of power. Myra Paige opened the event with a rousing call for a unified electorate to impeach President Trump. Inviting a foreign power to interfere with our elections, and then obstructing the Congressional investigations once his actions were exposed is exactly the behavior our founding fathers were guarding against. Many speakers joined us on the solemn occasion, including Hannah Beth Jackson, Gail Teton-Landis, Erica Reyes and Das Williams. Savanah Parison, Ian Paige and Andrew Bermant of Indivisible Santa Barbara also joined the speakers. The speakers were followed by a unified march through Santa Barbara with the crowd of over 300 people joining in chants.


 

Guiding Principles

In California, we are in a unique position to embolden not only our Members of Congress, but also our California state legislators, who have declared California’s intent to lead the charge against harmful federal policies. Our leaders need to hear our voices: our calls, letters, emails, personal stories, and in-person meetings count. These actions directly strengthen our Elected Representatives in Congress.  This group is dedicated to providing  the most effective daily and weekly actions possible, and we encourage our members to make them part of their daily routine.

We are growing daily and need YOU to become an organizer, spearhead a committee, make calls, write letters, blog, attend meetings, and more.

  1. We are an inclusive community.
  2. We are Indivisible. We do not propose policy, but are united in our pursuit to oppose harmful legislation.
    • We have a zero-tolerance policy toward in-fighting. As long as Liberals, Progressives, Democrats, and Moderates engage in a circular firing squad, we give our power to the minority–Extreme Conservatives win.
  3. We believe that citizens must act where we live, interacting with our own Members of Congress. We strive to take regular action, daily, weekly, monthly.
  4. We are patriotic Americans.
  5. We believe in peaceful actions, we do not condone violence.
