We are a multi-partisan group of more than 700 residents. We organized in 2017 to resist the Trump agenda and fought to defend our social programs, especially healthcare, and our democracy. We also worked hard in the 2018 and 2020 elections, making Trump a one-term president.
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. We are working and connecting virtually now, but look forward to resuming our coffee hours, happy hours and dinners in a post-Covid future. 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.
An organization called FL5.org is circulating five ballot amendments to the Florida Constitution, all aimed at protecting Florida's environment. FL5.org is providing a simple online way for registered voters to sign all five amendments.
Some of our members are most excited about the amendment protecting the Right to Clean Water. It
Prohibits pollution of Florida’s waters by recognizing a right to clean water for all Floridians and Florida waters, including the Everglades, Florida Springs, the Indian River Lagoon, the St. Johns River, the Caloosahatchee River, Biscayne Bay, Tampa Bay, Pensacola Bay and all other waters within the state; provides for local lawmaking to protect clean water, and provides for enforcement and severability.
To access all five amendment petitions online, go to FL5.org and input your name and email address. The site will instantly email you all 5 petitions, ready for you to print, sign, date and mail. You can print, sign and mail one or all five.
Even better, our members working on the campaign will pick up your signed petitions and mail them for you. Just email EnglewoodIndivisble@gmail.com to request a pickup.
March 9, 2021. Alice White, a member of Englewood Indivisible won a special election March 9th for the North Port City Commission (District 1). White won convincingly! According to the Sun, she won 60% of the vote against two opponents!
There is no secret to Alice's success: it was her hard work reaching out to voters, both in this campaign and in her earlier campaign for County Commission. What is unusual in our red corner of the world is the election of a candidate who's not beholden to polluters or developers. Congratulations, Alice!
Please watch this space for more details about Alice's victory -- and maybe a chance to talk with her about she did it.
