We Are Englewood Indivisible!

We are a multi-partisan 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, March 28th 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. We are affiliated with the Indivisible Florida Network and Swing Left.

Opportunities To Help Hard-Hit Members Of Our Community

At our virtual meeting on Saturday March 28th, we discussed what we can do to help those in our community who have been slammed by the shut-down of the economy to facilitate social distancing.

Here are several opportunities close to home to help those hit by the economic crisis.

  • First, if you've canceled with your hairdresser or house cleaner, please consider paying them anyhow.
  • In Charlotte County, you can help support residents who are suddenly without a paycheck by making a matched donation to the Charlotte County Community Foundation. For information, call 941-637-0077.
  • In Sarasota County, the annual Season of Sharing (the Herald Tribune and the Community Foundation of Sarasota County) is once again collecting to assist with rental needs, child care, utility bills and other expenses. Online donations can be made here. Call 941-556-3000 for more information.
  • United Way of South Sarasota County has establshed a Coronavirus Recovery and Relief Fund. Donate to this fund here. Checks can be mailed to United Way of South Sarasota County at 157 S. Havana Road, Venice, FL 34292. For info contact Barbara Cruz at 941-484-4811 or barbara@uwssc.com.

Get Up And Running With Zoom Video Meetings

Englewood Indivisible has moved all its in-person gatherings to Zoom.

Zoom is a video-conferencing app that most people find easy and enjoyable to use. It works on your smart phone, most tablets, and your computer. We recommend using a computer, as you can participate in the text chat as well as the online video meeting.

Here's a video showing you how to join a Zoom meeting. The app installs automatically the first time you use it. (If it asks you to save the install file, please do so.) 

If you plan to use a smart phone or a tablet, go to the App Store for your device and get the free app "Zoom Cloud Meetings." Install the app, then click the link you got for the meeting.

If you have trouble, you can dial in with one of the phone numbers listed for the meeting.

Or you can get into the weeds and follow this tutorial, which will show you how to try to run Zoom in a browser.

April 5th: Responding to concerns about its security, Zoom has begun requiring passwords for all its meetings. If you are clicking the link to join online, the password is in the link. Otherwise, the password is given with the connection information so you can input it.
