About Indivisible Northampton-Swing Left Western MA

Indivisible Northampton – Swing Left Western MA (IN-SLWM), serving the first and second Congressional Districts of Western MA, is a chapter of the national progressive grassroots movement,  Indivisible, with over 2000 chapters nationwide.

Our mission is to promote a strong and inclusive American democracy by educating and mobilizing constituents of MA CD-2 and beyond. We work to elect and hold accountable bold progressive leaders who will protect our country from the dangerous agenda of the right-wing MAGA extremists. We aim to strengthen our democratic institutions, advance social justice, protect the environment, and more. As a proud chapter of Indivisible and Swing Left, we collaborate with local, regional and national groups to build an informed, sustainable activist community.

Indivisible Northampton formed from 2 neighborhood groups that had been meeting since November, 2016, to fight back against the authoritarian, racist, and corporatist agenda of Trump and his right-wing enablers. We meet as an open group twice monthly, hosting candidates and representatives of various progressive causes and legislation. In addition, we have several action teams, each of which focuses on a particular goal, such as universal health care, criminal justice reform,  immigration justice, electing progressives to office, and more.

Our mailing list numbers over 1300, and our members regularly lead and support the progressive campaigns of individuals and policies, often collaborating with other progressive groups.
