On Monday April 17, for the first time, the largest Indivisible groups in Washington state: Indivisible North Seattle, Seattle Indivisible, Indivisible Eastside, and Puget Sound Indivisible (with combined membership of over 10,000) held a joint event called “Indivisible Town Meeting: Activists Assemble” during the April congressional recess.

The purpose of the event was to reach out to all those folks who feel frustrated, afraid, and angry about where our country is headed, and to leave them feeling inspired and empowered to go out and make a difference. In that respect, we succeeded well beyond our expectations.

Over 300 people gathered in the Shoreline Center auditorium to hear the speakers.

Jonathan Tong, lead organizer for Indivisible North Seattle: "This was the first time Indivisible groups from Tacoma to Everett to Wenatchee got together to fight back. It won't be the last."

The booths were quiet when everyone was inside

45 booths lined the hallway and reception area for the Activist Fair so "attendees would find easy, effective ways to learn, take their activism to the next level, and network with other progressive activist groups."

Nicole Bradt, Social Media admin for Indivisible North Seattle: “The activist fair was extremely busy and extremely popular with attendees. It was inspiring to watch, and the energy in the room was amazing. Everyone from brand-new activists to seasoned veterans learned something new!” 

Seattle Indivisible is planning a similar event in May.

A complete program of events is found here.
