What are the Indivisible Eugene Organizer’s up to?

Recruiting, Recruiting and Recruiting. The Membership Support Team is recruiting for our 9 teams. We are very busy, currently we’re hosting the Resist Trump Tuesday Rallies every other week and planning events as often as possible. We have about 60 volunteers in the Organizer group and need triple that. Why? We are all volunteers so time is limited, the need for action and coordination of efforts is always pressing, preventing burnout of the core volunteers, and building a large sense of community. If interested please send an email to membersupport@indivisibleeugene.org with subject “Organizer”. We meet every other Sunday but that is not required. Most of our work and communication is done on a secure website.

Website development. We are working on making our public website more valuable with event information, blog and email sign up.

Strengthening alliances. Our Ally Outreach Team is in contact with both sister Indivisible Groups as well as other ally groups. We were involved with forming a District 4 Ally Group that has 1-2 members from each ally group as a representative. We are also very excited to have merged with Indivisible Together!

Event development. Our event team has refined their process for pre-planning each event.

Organizational development. Our Social Media team and the Media Outreach team are working to form a new PR Team to help with coordination of a consistent message. Our MoC Tracking Team and newly forming Research Team are discussing their emerging roles. The Diversity Team is beginning to take root. We need active experienced volunteers to develop this crucial team further. Our goal is to be representative of our whole community!

Our Continued Mission:

As a local Eugene chapter of the national Indivisible movement we stand together to support and hold our Members of Congress accountable to resist this administration’s regressive agenda. We value inclusion and fairness, and resist negative rhetoric.We get our message to our Members of Congress through our presence at Town Hall meetings, rallies at their offices and media blitz involving targeted phone calls and postcards. We are non-violent and lawful in our actions.

We are all in this fight together.
