In December 1999, El Comite (Pro-Reforma Migratoria Y Justicia Social-formerly Comite Pro-Amnistia General Y Justicia Social) was organized as a grassroots organization in Seattle to draw attention to the plight of immigrant laborers in Western Washington. The group came together immediately following the massive protests against the World Trade Organization (WTO) that occurred in Seattle in late November 1999. Initial organizers included members of CASA Latina, LELO (Legacy of Equality, Leadership, and Organizing), the Northwest Immigrant Rights Project, and the Carpenters' Union. One of the organizers' key considerations was the lack of representation within the WTO protests of Latinos, Chicanos, and the immigrant community in general. The group worked at first as a loose coalition and later, in April 2000, formed as an official organization. The group further allied itself with faith-based organizations, organized labor, and civil rights groups to give a marginalized Latino immigrant community a voice in organizing for social justice.

Indivisible Eastside’s mission is to work effectively together within the Eastside region of metropolitan Seattle to 1) stop the Trump Agenda and 2) advance progressive and compassionate policies and government per the Indivisible Guide (www.indivisible.org).
Indivisible Kirkland is deeply committed to local action. We value a community where where all voices are heard, where hate has no place, where the sick and struggling are supported, where the planet is treated as precious, and where democracy is strong.
We utilize all levels of government to implement this vision – federal, state, and local. Our group is actively engaged with the community: with our elected officials, with other organizations, with sister Indivisible groups, with businesses, and with concerned citizens looking for support.
