We are Indivisible Port Townsend
Do you want to be on the offense against Trump and his administration’s agenda? Indivisible Port Townsend is on the offense and is dedicated to empowering grassroots activists and emboldening Democrats through informed local action. Join us.
We are the umbrella group for six action teams: Elections, Environmental, Healthcare, Immigration, Foreign Affairs, and Education.
Our large huddle meets on the second Tuesday of the month. We get an update from each of our teams along with an occasional guest speaker. We meet at the Unity Center, 3918 San Juan Ave (across from Blue Heron School) in Port Townsend from 5:00 until 6:30 PM.
Our postcard parties are on the first Sunday of each month at Pippa’s Teas on Water Street in downtown Port Townsend from 3 to 5 PM. We write postcards to legislators and other government officials concerning important issues.
In December of 2016 an email went around from a friend saying "Do you want to join me for the Seattle Women's March". That was the beginning! People started replying and we decided to get a bus. Well, we booked 4 buses, 191 people and ended up with an email list of over 200.
Two days after the march, Libby Palmer went to Sunrise Coffee and saw 2 women with pink pussy hats and joined them and a great conversation began. Soon others got interested and started asking questions and pretty soon, the whole place was involved. The question was asked, “What do we do now” and one woman suggested they meet again the next week same time same place to continue.
Our first meeting at Sunrise Coffee surprised us all when 40 people showed up. We deemed ourselves the Sunrise Huddle in support of the 2nd action from the Women's March - create huddles of people who want to do action. We had several more meetings there (thank you Bill and Sue). We divided into interest/work groups and began to formalize our plans of action.
We quickly outgrew Sunrise Coffee but not our enthusiasm. We've joined up with the local Indivisible group and are now Indivisible Port Townsend.
