We are a nonpartisan group of more than 600 residents resisting the Trump agenda, respectfully making our voices heard by our elected representatives — and working to replace those representatives when they don't respect us!
Englewood Indivisible members live throughout all of Englewood in both Sarasota and Charlotte counties, as well as Placida, Rotonda West, North Port, the Gulf Coves and nearby Port Charlotte. We invite you to join us as we reach out to the community, campaign for change, and enjoy socializing together.
Our next meeting is Saturday, November 9th at 3:00 PM at the Elsie Quirk Library.
Englewood Indivisible is one of the hundreds of Indivisible groups that sprang up around the country after the 2016 election.
Three Indivisible groups -- Indivisible Action Southwest Florida, Englewood Indivisible and Indivisible Venice -- will team up behind a Woodstock * 50-themed float for Englewood's annual Pioneer Days Parade.
The Parade will take place on Saturday afternoon November 2nd. Originally set for Labor Day morning, it was postponed because of Hurricane Dorian.
We invite all our members and supporters to join us, either riding on our float or walking behind us. We are putting together goodie bags to hand out to spectators. We'll have plenty of cold drinks for you but you'll need sunscreen and a hat.
Please plan to join us at 3:30 PM at the Englewood Shopping Center, 200 S Indiana Ave, Englewood 34223. We will update this post as soon as we get our position number, which will help you find us.
Please wear either your Indivisible Florida t-shirts or your still-splendid 60s gear. You can download a pdf version of Sherry O'Connell's illustration, which has suggestions about signage and what to wear.
You can see here what our contingent looked like last year.
August 16, 2019 - Englewood Indivisible is posting policy positions on a range of the issues that will draw voters' focus as we move toward the 2020 elections. Written by a dozen of our group's most dedicated activists, the positions will be presented to group members at our August 17th meeting.
The policy positions will be available as a document to Englewood Indivisible members who canvass and engage voters at tables.
As a diverse multi-partisan group, we have different issues that motivate us, and individual positions may vary on some topics. However, we have consensus in our opposition to the current president’s policies and behaviors. As the present Republican Party frequently embraces these policies and behaviors, we often back Democratic candidates. Yet, regardless of their party affiliation, we advocate for candidates who champion our positions.
Healthcare: We believe all Americans, including the self-employed, have the right to healthy lives and to affordable healthcare, regardless of pre-existing conditions. We support programs which extend health care benefits to more people, including:
Reproductive Rights. We believe that abortion should be safe, legal and a rarity. Even though some of us may be personally opposed to abortion, we nonetheless trust women with this difficult decision and believe the choice should be available. We also support:
Environment: We believe the government should take strong action to
Immigration: We do not endorse open borders. We support comprehensive immigration reform that addresses security issues from our land borders to entrance to the US via air or sea.
We advocate legislation:
