INDIVISIBLE HOUSTON

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!

    “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.

Rally: Tell Ted Cruz to Give Blood Money to Gun Victims

November 18, 2017, 10:00am - November 18, 2017, 12:00pm

Constituents Take Ted Cruz to Task on NRA Ties Gun Safety Advocates: Donate NRA Contributions to Families Gun Violence Victims WHO: Indivisible Houston, Pantsuit Republic Houston, Indivisible Austin, Indivisible TX Lege, TX21 Indivisible, TX20 Indivisible, TX23 Indivisible, TX28 Indivisible, TX35 Indivisible-San Antonio, and Women’s March on Washington-San Antonio WHAT: Statewide action WHEN: Saturday, November 18th, 2017, 10:00 AM WHERE: Offices of Senator Ted Cruz in Houston, Austin, Dallas, and San Antonio WHY: To demand the surrender and donation of NRA contributions and push for comprehensive gun reforms. Given the recent shootings in Sutherland and Las Vegas, The People are taking mass action across Texas to raise awareness for comprehensive public safety protections from shootings. This Saturday, protests at the offices of Ted Cruz will call on the Senator to donate the $360,000 he has taken from Ammo lobby to the families of the victims of gun violence. The action also calls for closing gun loopholes by demanding universal background checks and universal criminal data sharing. Stricter gun laws in the name of public safety and protections for the masses are popular with the public. A recent Gallup poll shows that 96% of Americans believe in universal background checks for all gun purchases, while 64% of Americans say they support stricter gun laws. An overwhelming majority believe stricter gun laws would reduce mass shootings in the United States. It’s time to put an end to business as usual for the Ammo Industrial Complex, which has gotten away with endangering The People while lining the pockets of politicians and turning them into gun lobby surrogates. The NRA’s silence in the wake of the death of concealed carrier Philando Castile and the organization’s violent propaganda against peaceful advocates shows that the NRA is less concerned with protecting the 2nd Amendment than they are undermining the First Amendment and turning blood in the streets into cash in the bank.
