We Are Indivisible: A Conversation with Leah Greenberg, Ezra Levin, and Congresswoman Pramila Jayapal, presented by University Book Store
Join us for an evening with the activists behind the Indivisible movement, in conversation with Congresswoman Pramila Jayapal!
Shortly after Trump's election, two outraged former congressional staffers wrote and posted a tactical guide to resisting the Trump agenda. This Google Doc entitled Indivisible was meant to be read by friends and family, but no one could have predicted what happened next. It went viral, sparking the creation of thousands of local Indivisible groups in red, blue, and purple states, mobilizing millions of people and evolving into a defining movement of the Trump Era. From crowding town halls to killing TrumpCare to rallying around candidates to build the Blue Wave, Indivisibles powered the fight against Trump and pushed the limits of what was politically possible by taking regular, iterative, and increasingly complex actions to resist the GOP's agenda, elect local champions, and fight for progressive policies.
In We Are Indivisible: A Blueprint for Democracy After Trump, the co-executive directors of Indivisible tell the story of the movement and offer a behind-the-scenes look at how change comes to Washington, whether Washington wants it or not. And they explain how we'll win the coming fight for the future of American democracy. We Are Indivisible isn't a book of platitudes about hope; its a steely-eyed guide to people power - how to find it, how to build it, and how to use it to usher in the post-Trump era.
100% of the authors proceeds will go to Indivisibles Save Democracy Fund, a new fund set up to support the movement and whose dollars will be used to support an expanded Distributed Fundraising program and prodemocracy reform campaigns at the state, federal, and presidential levels.
About the Authors
Leah Greenberg and Ezra Levin are the coauthors of the Indivisible Guide and co-Executive Directors of Indivisible, where they lead a national staff in Washington DC and across the country supporting the Indivisible movement in advocacy, elections, and grassroots organizing. They were named to TIME's 100 most influential people and have been listed in the Politico 50 list, GQ's 50 Most Powerful People in Trump's Washington, and Roll Call's People to Watch in 2019. Leah was a human trafficking policy advocate before joining the office of Congressman Tom Perriello on Capitol Hill. Working for a progressive in the red fifth district of Virginia at the rise of the Tea Party, she saw firsthand the power that organized constituent power could have and she took notes. After Perriello's loss in 2010, she returned to human trafficking policy until the 2016 election, when she started writing a quick guide to constituent power with her spouse Ezra.
