Local Indivisible Movement demands Rep. Newhouse's attention

Posted: Updated:

RICHLAND, WA - The Indivisible Movement started out as a Google Document in mid-December created by former congressional staffers, but it has since exploded on the Internet. The now 26-page indivisible guide gives citizens tools and tips on how to have their voices effectively heard and represented appropriately by their local representatives in an effort to "resist the Trump agenda".

Since it was written, thousands of indivisible groups have sprung up all over the country; including one in Richland, where people got together earlier today.

"What we think as indivisible is that our elected representatives, our local elected representatives are those who can best support our point of view and best express our point of view at the federal level," said Martin McBriarty, volunteer with the local Indivisible Movement.

Reaching out to members of congress to ensure each viewpoint is acknowledged is one of the key strategies laid out in the indivisible guide.

McBriarty told NBC Right Now that everyone met at Representative Newhouse's office today to request that he hold a town hall meeting. Some of the topics of discussion they hope to address are immigration, health care, science funding, and more.
