Indivisible Houston

Is a Houston area group focused on the principles outlined in the Indivisible Guide. We are a nonpartisan progressive group dedicated to uniting Houston’s congressional districts in advocacy and resisting bills that negatively impact society. We do this by pressuring members of Congress to represent their constituents.

Our Mission

Advocate for governance of, by, and for The People through engagement, education, and resistance.

We believe in an American democracy committed to good governance. We define good governance as a system that provides for the equitable treatment of all human beings, the defense of our natural rights, and the empowerment of every individual to reach their highest good.

We support a completely activated citizenry: universal advocacy, engagement, and knowledge of the people and processes in our communities and our government.

NOTE: Our chief job is as a supportive cavalry focused locally on elected officials for defensive purposes. However, since defense and offense are not clearly separated in politics, that can also mean engaging in proactive campaigns and removing politicians from office.

Guiding Principles

  1. We encourage participation and ownership in your government.
  2. We believe people have the right to receive equitable treatment and achieve their highest good.
  3. We oppose tyranny.

 

If you’re in Houston and ready to resist, contact us.

    There is a lot going on – even more than we’ve seen lately. Your calls, emails, and rallies pushed the Senate GOP to delay a vote on their healthcare bill. That’s a HUGE win in the fight to protect health care for Americans. So remember, when we work together, we can make positive changes!

    HOUSTON - It's no 'Occupy' sized demonstration, but a group of activists do have a message for Texas Senator Ted Cruz this Thanksgiving.
    “We're saying 'thanks, but no thanks' to this tax cut. We're telling Ted Cruz to vote against the GOP tax scam. A huge Christmas wrapped tax cut for the wealthy on the backs of the working class,” said Daniel Cohen with Indivisible Houston.
    But wait, that's not what President Trump called it on Monday, saying, “We're going to give the American

    “When you see people’s faces with the chicken, they’re all smiles. It’s therapeutic, really.”



  • Houston Chronicle

    Members of Tax March Houston and Indivisible Houston gave the prop a ride through downtown to protest what they called the "Trump Tax Scam," or the Republican Tax Plan released last week. The so-called "Ride of the Chicken" aimed to raise awareness about the tax plan, which Democrats have criticized as a tax cut for the wealthiest Americans and Republicans have pushed as a pro-business corporate tax cut.



  • United We Dream

    Houston, TX – Late yesterday, immigrant leaders with United We Dream Houston and clergy from TX-7 met with US Rep. John Culberson to demand a clean Dream Act by December of this year. This follows Trump’s decision to kill DACA earlier this year–a program that offered safety from deportation and the ability to work for more than 800,000 undocumented youth across the country, and an estimated 124,000 young Texans. unitedwedream.org

    WASHINGTON, D.C. - The prognosis on the latest bill to repeal Obamacare is in. Using medical jargon, it's a code blue. The Graham-Cassidy bill is dead. Senators will not vote on it because they don't have the requisite 51 votes needed to pass it.
    One reason might be the that the Congressional Budget Office said the bill would drastically cut Medicaid and leave millions more without health insurance. Senate Democrats have a different treatment plan.
    "Each of our ideas, however, endeavors to... Read more...
