IMV is a group of concerned citizens who self-organize around events and projects that strengthen our bonds and community with one another while standing up peacefully and non-violently to the destructive, corrupt, and undemocratic forces in American politics. We are dedicated to championing social justice, to working to support progressive values, and to electing progressive candidates to office at every level of government. We are a civic engagement and political activism community with the goal of making political activism bite size, local, and fun.
Indivisible Mohawk Valley (IMV) members were inspired to go from voters to activists after the November 2016 election, the Women's March, and subsequent events locally and nationally.
IMV follows the three principles set forth in the Indivisible Guide, which means we respond defensively to the actions and words of 45 and our members of Congress. We are also a civic engagement and political action oriented group. If you would like to learn more about resisting the Trump agenda, you are welcome to join us.
We have subcommittees on various topics so interested members can blend education and activism. IMV participates in Knit the District, a coalition of grassroots resistance groups in NY 22 focusing on unseating Claudia Tenney in 2018, and has close relationships with other groups across the state.
If this intrigues you, please do not be shy about reaching out to us. Join the Resistance! Everyone has something that they bring to our grassroots energy. What are you passionate about? What are you good at? What are you not-so-good at? Everyone is on their own activism journey, so whether you are just looking to be more aware of what is happening around you, are ready to put your body in motion like writing letters or attending events, or are interested in leading a project, tell us so we can find the best way to maximize your gifts.
