OSL Spotlight: Indivisible Northwestern


How would you describe your organization to someone who hasn't heard of it?
Indivisible Northwestern (INU) is a chapter of Indivisible, a grassroots movement of thousands of groups with a mission to elect progressive leaders and rebuild American democracy. The goal of INU is to provide students with action-oriented opportunities to develop organizing and leadership skills, and to meet and work with other people who are interested in addressing social issues like climate change and social justice. We offer students numerous experiences in civic engagement through a variety of campaigns, such as text-banking for an election, running local participatory budgeting processes with the City of Evanston, or conducting a DefaultVeg campaign on campus to reduce carbon emissions by changing catering options.
