    The title pretty much says it all. Indivisible is especially helpful if you want to start a group for the purposes of influencing your senators and congressional representative, but even if that's not possible for you, it also provides a lot of useful information about how elected officials' offices work, what's important to them, and how to be effective if you call or email them or have a chance to talk to them in person. It's also well-written and free of typos, and you can't say that about to The title pretty much says it all.

    This book is a must-read for anyone who is an American and who did not vote for Mr. Trump and who is worried about where our country may be heading. Written by congressional staffers, it is a easy to read, concise, and very useful inside look at how to get your Senators and Congressman and Congresswoman's attention. It tells what matters to them (getting reelected), and what you need to do to be heard by them. Easy things, but things that get noticed.

Written by congressional staffers, it is a easy to read, concise, and very useful inside look at how to get your Senators and Congressman and Congresswoman's attention. It tells what matters to them (getting reelected), and what you need to do to be heard by them. Easy things, but things that get noticed. The book also tells a history of the Tea Party movement, and how we can now use what was learned by the Tea Party movement actions to get even more notice by our elected officials. Positive things, useful things, how to get heard. How to make a difference. Download it (it is free), print it, read it, highlight it, keep it handy, use it. Something new is happening here, something is bubbling up across the country, and change IS possible!

    A straight-to-the-point guide on locally-focused defensive political action. Every tactic mentioned and the reasoning behind each is common sense, but presented as part of a coherent strategy interwoven with the message that the principles of organization and action that worked for the Tea Party will work for their counterparts on the left. It delivers this message while rejecting some of the more divisive methods used by the Tea Party in favor of exhorting the reader to explicitly reach out to A straight-to-the-point guide on locally-focused defensive political action. Every tactic mentioned and the reasoning behind each is common sense, but presented as part of a coherent strategy interwoven with the message that the principles of organization and action that worked for the Tea Party will work for their counterparts on the left. It delivers this message while rejecting some of the more divisive methods used by the Tea Party in favor of exhorting the reader to explicitly reach out to marginalized groups targeted by Trump's rhetoric. At the same time, it warns some of the more vulnerable groups away from tactics that could single them out for retaliation, reminding the reader that the more privileged groups have a responsibility to use that privilege to ensure that those not in a position to speak for themselves effectively have their turn at the mic. I'm not what I would consider very politically active or savvy myself, so I can't judge the quality of this guide from practical experience, but it was straightforward overall, and supplemented with a few realistic-sounding example scenarios for interacting with local representatives and their staff.

I recommend this to anyone that wants to be active locally, wants change, or is uncertain with the Trump agenda.

Highly recommend to anyone who wants to take action and incite change, but isn't sure where to start. We as a nation are still learning how to effectively organize, and we're learning quickly.

    This has great information for political organizing and resistance to the Trump agenda - super quick read with good tips. "The Tea Party’s success came down to two critical strategic elements: 1.

"The Tea Party’s success came down to two critical strategic elements: 1. They were locally focused. The Tea Party started as an organic movement built on small local groups of dedicated conservatives. Yes, they received some support/coordination from above, but fundamentally all the hubbub was caused by a relatively small number of conservatives working together. 2. They were almost purely defensive. The Tea Party focused on saying NO to Members of Congress (MoCs) on their home turf. While the Tea Party activists were united by a core set of shared beliefs, they actively avoided developing their own policy agenda. Instead, they had an extraordinary clarity of purpose, united in opposition to President Obama. They didn’t accept concessions and treated weak Republicans as traitors." This has been on the tongue of many Democrats over the last few months (and actually years to counter the Tea Party) so great to see it written down and accessible to local groups.

    Can you hear the distant drums? Rise up! This very practical guide gives specific steps to take to fight the Trump agenda. I will continue to educate myself about the issues facing our country and make my opinion known. This was very helpful!

The Indivisible Team has expanded as has the information and tools all conscientious, compassionate and realistic people can, and are, using to combat the corruption and nonsense of this administration. Even if you don't ever want to be part of a local Indivisible, the info is very good for those who want to interact with their Members of Congress.

    This is really great at being what it is: a short, manageable introduction for anyone to pick up and begin to hold their federal reps accountable. I consider myself rather well-versed in these issues (I'd logged many phone calls to my members of Congress long before T-rump ever considered politics), and I learned a lot of new practical advice.

    Indivisible is a decent guide and overview for people wanting to interact with and influence their Members of Congress. I found some of the information helpful, however I think that the resist Trump and Tea-Party message, while important, may not resonate with people that are more centrist. It's about resisting using Tea-Party tactics, and doesn't offer anything new to the political layman.

    Must-read, even if you're not in America. All representative democracy have similar stakes, and can similarly be "hacked" for good or evil. Read this, then learn about your own system.

    A speedy read that's more relevant to voters and activists in battleground states and red states, but I still appreciated its goal in developing a common language that folks can now use to engage productively. For all my purpleish friends, this isn't a blanket anti-Republican guide; it focuses on lessons learned from Tea Party activism, and I'd argue it's good for folks of all stripes.

    This is a very handy and accessible quick guide to folks (like me) who want to become more politically active (especially at local levels), and don't know how to start. This guide outlines specific situations and helps you prepare to effectively communicate and reinforce your political concerns with the Members of Congress who represent you as a constituent.
