Type:

Left-of-center

Indivisible CA-33 (ICA33) was formed to turn out Democratic voters and advance Democratic political priorities within California’s Congressional District 33. It is one of approximately 6,000 left-of-center Indivisible Project local organizations formed to oppose President Donald Trump’s agenda after his election in 2016. [1]

ICA33 is a partner of Field Team 6 , a national Democrat voter registration and mobilization network. It partners with left-of center organizations including Civic Sundays, Sister District Project, and Westside Democratic HQ. [2] [3]

Organization

Indivisible CA-33 was formed in 2017 after President Donald Trump’s election to oppose the Trump administration’s agenda within California’s Congressional District 33. [4] [5]

The informal group is one of 6,000 similar groups scattered across the United States operating under the umbrella of the Indivisible Project, a left of center organization that opposes former President Donald Trump and promotes Democratic Congressional candidates. [6]

ICA33 encouraged its members to resist the Trump administration’s policies and, after his election loss, to oppose Republican and Trump-aligned policy initiatives with messaging and get-out-the-vote efforts. [7]

The group renamed itself Indivisible Westside LA based on new boundaries created for California Congressional District 33 in September of 2022. [8]

Activities

Indivisible CA-33 rallies its members to support its left-of-center agenda by door-knocking, holding rallies and events, and conducting social media, text, and phone campaigns. [9]

The group has begun to use Grassroots Messaging Works, a political messaging outfit that is also a member of Field Team 6. It creates sharable social media content that casts ICA33 as “pro-democracy” and in opposition to “anyone who threatens our neighbors, Americans or our democracy.” [10]

The group casts the opposition as “villains,” motivated by a “thirst for power, others by white supremacy, and many by greed.” Campaigns include pre-prepared messaging distinguishing “Team Coup, the 1% that are against democracy” from “Team You,” which is pro-democracy. [11]

On its Facebook page, ICA33 promotes support for Ukraine, rooftop solar panels, the Build Back Better Act, and  Swing Left, a Democratic Party-aligned voter mobilization political action committee. [12]

The group’s Twitter feed includes re-Tweets of asserting that “Trump and his co-conspirators provoked mob violence, knowingly sent an armed mob to the Capitol, tried to coverup the conspiracy, and lit the flame of the criminal conspiracy to attack our country.” [13]

Indivisible CA-33 is a partner of Field Team 6, a left-of-center group that promotes “drag queen events” and voter registration and turnout in California, Nevada, Arizona, Texas, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, Virginia, North Carolina, Georgia, and Florida. [14] [15]

The group works with SoCal Blue, an organization that promotes Swing Left; Field Team 6; Civic Sundays, Sister District Project, a left-of-center Democratic Party voter registration and mobilization group; Westside Democratic HQ; and other left-of-center group events that included a call for volunteers to travel to Georgia with expenses paid to support Sen. Raphael Warnock (D-GA). [16] [17] [18]
