We Are Englewood Indivisible!

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.

Do Effective State Legislative Advocacy With UUJusticeFlorida

As the Florida State Legislature's 2022 session gets underway, Englewood Indivisible is teaming up with Unitarian Universalist Justice Florida (UUJusticeFlorida) so our members can maximize the effect of their advocacy with their state representatives. Sign up here to get action alerts.

This will be the fourth year that our Indivisible group and others around the state have partnered with UUJusticeFlorida -- a relationship in which we are clearly the junior partners, taking advantage of UUJusticeFlorida's expertise in every aspect of legislative advocacy. Most notably, UUJusticeFlorida tracks bills of particular interest and sends email alerts to participants whose representatives or senators are on committees hearing those bills.

But before the committees meet and session even begins, UUJusticeFlorida provides step-by-step guidance for preparations that include scheduling virtually office visits with elected representatives. (Because it currently lacks campaign leadership, Englewood Indivisible is leaving it up to individuals to plan visits.)

Toward the end of session (at least pre-Covid), UUJusticeFlorida organizes a big, visible group visit to Tallahassee, where participants have meetings with their representatives and senators. The accompanying photo is from January 2020, just before Covid.

Sign up here to get alerts on legislation.

Alice White Wins Election To North Port City Commission

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.
