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.
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.
- We encourage participation and ownership in your government.
- We believe people have the right to receive equitable treatment and achieve their highest good.
- We oppose tyranny.
If you’re in Houston and ready to resist, contact us.
