This is our moment. We need your help to win this fight. So we’ve got two big requests for you:
- Watch the Washington Indivisible Network (WIN) video panel discussion Addressing Activist Burnout Panel Discussion
- The Skagit chapter of Indivisible is looking for technology volunteers. We need skills in WordPress or Weebly as well as Facebook. Please contact email@example.com for more information.
- Donate $10 to Indivisible Project. Now more than ever, it’s crucial we keep our call lines open, our web resources up to date, our ads running, and all our organizer support on the ground to build pressure on senators. Grassroots funding (from people like you!) is what makes all of that possible.

The Indivisible Truth Brigade is a growing army of grassroots truth-tellers who identify specific disinformation campaigns to counter and amplify effective counter messages for a new topic each week.
Each week, Truth Brigade leadership issues a new campaign focused on a single issue with info, links, and sample messages. Members personalize, share, and amplify factual messages to counter specific disinformation campaigns.
Propaganda, false characterizations, intentionally misleading messages, and outright lies threaten our democracy and even our lives. Together we stand up to these well-funded disinformation campaigns and shift the narrative by amplifying unified, factual messages.
Right now, you can join in to counter the the false anti-Critical Race Theory messaging of a candidate running for the Sedro Woolley School Board, and agitators disrupting other School Boards in Skagit.

The Indivisible Skagit Immigrant Support Task Force is offering accompaniment for tenants who are working through issues with their landlords. We can share information about tenants’ rights, help folks connect with organizations providing rent assistance and help with applications for federal and state funding. We can contact a landlord at the request of a tenant to facilitate resolutions to problems, and be present with tenants for lease signings, move-in and move-out inspections, or help with getting damage deposits back.
We have both English and Spanish speakers on our team.
If you know someone who needs this service, or you want to join our team, contact us at info@IndivisibleSkagit.org

Skagit County Elections – safe and secure?
Stop suburban sprawl in rural Skagit! Sign the petition
Let’s make it crystal clear to Skagit County Commissioners. The people of Skagit do not want our rural areas paved over with giant suburban housing developments! The community coalition of organizations and individuals, Right Growth, Right Place is pleased to launch a countywide petition drive to deliver that message loud and clear. No to so-called Fully Contained Communities. The petitions will be presented to Commissioners in person on camera probably in early November. Our goal is 20,000 signatures.
You can help right now. Here’s how in 4 easy steps:
This step is crucial. We can’t show the Skagit County Commissioners that the people of Skagit don’t want suburban sprawl swallowing up our rural lands unless we turn in the signatures.
Please consider making a donation to support the Right Growth Right Place campaign!
Thank you for joining in to keep Skagit's rural countryside safe from development.
Help STOP FCCs from Paving Over Skagit!
Skagit County Commissioners voted unanimously in May to open the door to giant housing developments in Skagit’s rural countryside. These so-called "Fully Contained Communities" (FCCs) are town-sized build-outs with no town government. Spoiler alert: they are not “fully contained” either. No fire department, no police, no emergency services, no schools, no medical facilities. You get the idea.
Now for the good news! The opposition campaign is launched!
