Indivisible in Sonoma County

Feb 22, 2017

Activists and citizens in Sonoma County seeking to oppose the Trump administration are finding support and gleaning tactics from the Indivisible Guide, and the local chapters that are promulgating it.

A key to the growth of participation in local Indivisible groups—now estimated at more than 1500 people county-wide—is how it is structured to allow a gradual entry, observes  Rebecca Hachmeyer from the Petaluma group.

In addition to Indivisible Sonoma County, local groups have also sprung up in Petaluma, Sonoma, Healdsburg and Sebastopol. Quite a few of the local Indivisible folks are new to political activism, inspired by the outcome of the last election. That describes Lisa Salmon, who recounts her process to getting involved.
