Left-of-center Activist Group

Indivisible Nevada is a chapter of the Indivisible Project, which was founded to oppose the policies of the Trump administration. It is aligned with left-of-center groups like the Peoples Climate Movement (PCM) [1] and March for Our Lives Las Vegas [2] and politicians such as Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT). [3]

The organization’s website and social media presence suggest it may be defunct as of early 2022. [4]

Organization

There are two different Indivisible groups that represented the state of Nevada for the parent organization, the Indivisible Project. One is “Together We’re Indivisible Nevada” that uses “Indivisible Nevada” in its logo. It focused on educating voters and advancing left-progressive
social policy. On January 23, 2020, it posted that it would no longer be an affiliate of the Indivisible Project because, “It is devastating to know that an organization that started and has succeeded due to grassroots work can be so removed from the values they claim to hold.” [5] The second is Indivisible Nevadans. [6]

The Indivisible Project was founded primarily by Democratic congressional staffers who chose the name as an emblem of unity against President Donald Trump. Inspired by the conservative “tea party” movement’s success in opposing the Obama administration, Indivisible copied its strategy of locally driven efforts. Its efforts spawned more than 5,000 affiliate groups throughout the United States. [7]

Activity

The two Indivisible groups that represent the state of Nevada for the Indivisible Project have no recent activity on their websites as of early 2022. Indivisible Nevadans’ last Facebook post was August 4, 2019. Its group page had 430 likes. [8]

Together We’re Indivisible Nevada made its last post in March of 2021 and 145 people followed its Facebook group. [9]

Affiliates

The Indivisible Nevadans are a partner organization to the national environmentalist group, Peoples Climate Movement (PCM). [10] PCM advocates for a variety of left-of-center causes including the Green New Deal and “a climate action platform rooted in economic and racial justice.” [11]

Indivisible Nevada joined the March for Our Lives Las Vegas gun control protest, stating, “we will not stop marching until we vote out all the elected officials that ignore our collective voice demanding NEVER AGAIN!” [12]

Advocacy

Indivisible Nevada’s political positions included opposing alleged U.S. imperialism by former President George H.W. Bush. Indivisible Nevada staged protests in Las Vegas against the federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency. [13]

Indivisible Nevadans Facebook page has a call-to-action link, which directs users to U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders’ webpage. It featured a series of Sanders events in Nevada. [14]

Indivisible Nevadans endorsed Amy Vilela, [15] a Democrat candidate who lost in a primary for the Nevada’s 4th Congressional District [16] on a platform of “fighting for social, racial, economic & climate justice for all.” [17]
