On Friday, July 28, President Donald Trump spoke to a group of law enforcement officials in New York, and, at one point, explicitly encouraged police to manhandle suspects, saying,
[W]hen you see these thugs being thrown into the back of a paddy wagon — you just see them thrown in, rough — I said, please don’t be too nice. Like when you guys put somebody in the car and you’re protecting their head, you know, the way you put their hand over?

Indivisible Gainesville, a local group of nearly 2000 citizens, is again compelled to address a letter in which Congressman Ted Yoho defends his vote on June 8, 2017 to pass the “Financial CHOICE” legislation that effectively repeals the protections created by the Dodd-Frank Act. Read more
To the Members of Indivisible-Gainesville:
We are very excited to announce our new leadership structure. We apologize for our delay and appreciate your patience. We wanted a strong framework before reaching out for membership participation. The main organization of our new teams is quite similar to the previous organization with the major change being multiple leads per team to spread the responsibility more equitably and hopefully enhance our ability to resist even more strongly!
Please note that the Leadership team has updated the “rules of engagement” for any activity within the Indivisible Gainesville Facebook group. These updated rules have been posted to the closed group (pinned to the top for easy access for all members to peruse), to our public Facebook page and, as the post will be posted as a blog, can be easily shared by members.

Close to 600 of you attended the event and told the congressman that we are holding him accountable for his votes—that his actions affect ALL of his constituents. Yesterday’s town hall demonstrated how we, as a community, can overcome obstacles and show solidarity. The town hall was held during Passover, as it has been in previous years, which means that many members of the Jewish community would be unable to attend. This year, residents came up with a creative solution and held their Seder outside of the town hall. Read more
