Indivisible Nation BK

Promoting civic participation and engagement in the fight for justice, sustainability, and equality.

Mission

Indivisible Nation BK (INBK) is a not for profit organization 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. We work closely with Get Organized BK, the Indivisible Team, NY Renews, Make the Road, the True Blue Coalition and 350 Brooklyn. Our overarching goal is to foster engagement and participation in the political process, making activism as easy and accessible — and sometimes even fun — as possible.
