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.

    Indivisible Houston along with Texas Organizing Project, Tax March Houston, Pantsuit Republic and Houston Handmaids, rallied outside Ted Cruz's office on Monday, Nov. 27, as part of a National Day of Action protesting the recent Senate tax bill. Republicans revealed the $1.5 trillion plan early November, which some groups say will produce a significant tax cut for corporations. Daniel Cohen, president of Indivisible Houston, said the organization and other supporters against the tax bill have been

  • Houston Public Media

    Representatives of March for Science Houston, a science advocacy group, and Indivisible Houston, a progressive advocacy group, recommended that the City of Houston adopt net neutrality policies at the last city council meeting of the year.
    During the part of the City Council’s meeting reserved for members of the public to address the council, Elle Church, of March for Science, recommended the creation of a municipal Internet service provider (ISP).
    Houston resident Silky Malik proposed a fiber-based ISP administered through the City’s public library system.
    The proposed services differ from Houston’s municipal WiFi, WeCan — city WiFi still needs internet service providers (ISPs) to function and because ISPs could slow internet speeds, the city’s service is not necessarily neutral.

    HOUSTON - The decision to end net neutrality may have been made at the federal level, but advocates trying to bring it back from the dead are looking for local solutions.
    “Our city and its leaders can fix this problem that the national government has created. We are here to offer a solution. Municipal internet,” says Elle Church with March for Science Houston.
    “We believe in competition. We think that its good we just want to give Houstonians a fair shot being able to do it,”

    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
