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!
People attending Monday’s town hall hosted by Representative Yoho expected many things: he would endorse tax cuts, discuss Trump’s proposed budget, and speak about repealing the Affordable Care Act. What attendees did not expect was for the congressman to admit that he was wrong. Read more
Please don’t take away my son’s therapy.
My son has Autism. He is an amazing kid. He loves building things – especially electronics – and he always draws and writes out plans for the things he builds. His favorite classes in school are art and science. He is his little sister’s biggest supporter and helper. He loves animals. He adores Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings and can tell you every way in which the books and movies differ. He is smart and funny and loving and kind. And without ACA he’d be a mess. Read more
The admin team has heard your feedback. Many of you said that you would like more transparency and more participation from the group as a whole. Our challenge to you is to volunteer for a committee. There are over 1500 people in this group and only 7 admin support people. Unfortunately, a lot of the work to keep Indivisible Gainesville going is falling on the shoulders of our admin team.

We all came together and formed the Indivisible Gainesville chapter to influence our Members of Congress (MoCs) and preserve democracy. The main charge of the Indivisible Group is that we are polite, respectful, and persistent in gaining face time with our MoCs. On Saturday, March 4th, we accomplished just that. Through your letters, phone calls, office visits, and the diligent work by our admin team, we got Representative Yoho to hold a town hall with a Gainesville address. We got the congressman to hold a town hall outside of his usual format, which does not typically include any follow up questions. We got him to advertise that he was holding a town hall with greater than 24 hours notice. All of these accomplishments should not be overlooked. Read more
