Indivisible Nation BK (INBK) is a not for profit organization in Brooklyn dedicated to promoting civic participation and engagement in the fight for justice, sustainability, and equality. We use the Indivisible Guide's five strategies—calls/letter campaigns, town halls, meetings, public events, and elections—to push our local, state, and federal representatives to resist authoritarianism, corruption, and intolerance; protect democracy; and stand up for our communities.
canvass for climate action
We’re excited to share that we’re launching a new Brooklyn based climate action deep canvassing project this February, with support from the NY Renews Coalition and member groups!
Why: The climate crisis is too urgent to wait for the next election cycle to enact climate justice and climate action. We need action NOW! That’s why we’re going to dust off our door-knocking skills to start deep canvassing in our neighborhoods for climate action.
When: We already have 4 canvass days scheduled: Feb. 2, Feb. 10, March 2, and March 10. Each day will start at 10:00 am and run till 2 pm
What: Each session will start with an hour of training. Then, after a short coffee/snack break, we'll buddy up and go door to door to talk to our neighbors about their hopes and fears around climate change, with the goal of empowering everyone to take political action to save our communities and our planet. This month, we’ll be especially focused on informing our neighbors about the Climate and Community Protection Act, which would push NY toward 100% renewables by 2050, protect frontline and low-income communities from climate consequences, and create green jobs.
Who: YOU! Your friends! Your families!
Sign up for a session or two HERE. Share the sign-up with others you know who may be interested. We’ll email out location info and details the week before.
We CAN make a difference, one door at a time, neighbor to neighbor, for our communities and the planet. Please consider joining us.

Jan 3rd day of action
INBK and a coalition of NYC Indivisible groups kicked off 2019 with simultaneous meetings at the district offices of Reps Nydia Velazquez, Hakeem Jeffries and Yvette Clarke (with other meetings and actions with Reps. Jerry Nadler, Max Rose, Carolyn Maloney and Adriano Espaillat!) followed by a rally outside Senator Chuck Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand's offices (with appearances from their staff) telling them all to #BeBold! Photos from the rally were heavily featured on Rachel Maddow.
Amazing team of Indivisibles from all over NYC (Indivisible Brooklyn, Empire State Indivisible, Indivisible Harlem, Indivisible Upper East Side and Fight Back Bay Ridge) are working together to hold the Democrats accountable in the new year. Get involved and #dothework with us.
INBK is proud to endorse Jumaane Williams for Public Advocate. He is both an activist and an accomplished legislator with a strong progressive record throughout his tenure as a city council member, and was ranked as one of New York City’s top five city council members by City and State. He is a longtime proponent of social and criminal justice reforms, affordable housing, equity for public education, women’s reproductive rights, and protecting immigrants, all values we hold dear. We know that he will fight for all New Yorkers if he is elected and we look forward to seeing what he can achieve in this new role!
why we call
Need a reminder about “Why We Call?” Check out our film that explains why every constituent can and should call their elected officials - whether they are represented by Democrats OR Republicans
why we canvass
We are so proud of all of our members and fellow activists who followed Ocasio-Cortez’s advice in this video to knock on doors, phone and textbank, postcard and do the work to make the Blue Wave a reality on November 6th. Use that momentum to join us for what comes next: holding our electeds accountable!
Senator Schumer cancelled his town hall at the last minute but Indivisibles came anyway and took questions in the sweltering hear of the un-air conditioned sanctuary. The press joined us, with excellent coverage:
