St. Peter Indivisible
We are the Indivisible group of St.Peter and Greater Mankato. This group was inspired by The Indivisible Guide, a document written and distributed by former congressional staffers after the 2016 presidential election, which provided concrete tips on how to effectively resist the increasing attacks on already marginalized groups, American civil liberties, the environment, the norms and institutions of our democracy, etc. By February 2017, over 6,000 Indivisible groups had been established nationwide. While they may draw inspiration and guidance from the Indivisible organization, each group sets their own terms and agendas and adapts the Guide's resources and strategies for their own needs. Indivisible St. Peter/Greater Mankato is a non-partisan group dedicated to positive, progressive action to make people’s lives better and to create a more sustainable, equitable, and inclusive world. We seek to bring people together and inform, inspire, and empower members to take action. *Note: Indivisible St. Peter and Indivisible Greater Mankato have joined forces to form this combined group. Re: our Facebook page Facebook is great for sharing information but not so great for having conversations about complicated topics, especially with people we don’t know. Bi-weekly Solidarity Saturdays and Sundays and other in-person events have been designated as the best venues to conduct good faith conversations about current issues and the steps we, as a group, might take to address them. The intent of this facebook page is for it to be a unifying and organizing space for raising awareness on issues, sharing information about events, and disseminating calls to action. Group members are encouraged to post additional perspectives or corrections, but the page administrators do not have the time, energy, or the stomach for moderating lengthy comment threads. As humans with passions and convictions, questions and blindspots, we all need spaces to vent, listen, rage, learn, and engage with like-minded and not-like-minded people. But no single space can serve all these purposes at the same time for so large a group, so the focus here will be on community-building, solidarity, and positive action. We hope that this group and this space can make an impact with as many people as possible, but there are many ways to work toward the cause of greater justice and equity in the world. If you find that the direction of this particular group—its issues, approaches, actions, etc.—is not the right fit for you, we encourage you to find another group or another way to keep working toward what is meaningful to you. The most sustainable way to remain involved is to do what you can, when and how you can. Thanks for being a part of this group and for caring enough to engage.Activity status unknown.
