It helps connect groups who have specialized knowledge of specific issues with grassroots support to help get valuable legislation passed locally and nationally.
How We Are Structured
The IMC is organized with a Coordinating Board of nine members, each one elected for two-year terms by the Indivisible members in each of the nine Congressional Districts in Massachusetts to represent them in the statewide organization. Working collaboratively, IMC currently has Standing Teams to support longer-term needs. These Teams are Book Club; Communications; Racial Justice and Equity; Recruitment, Engagement & Training; and Technology. Other Teams may form as future needs arise.
The IMC also has Action Teams (or formally known as Ad-hoc Teams) to work on an as-needed basis on shorter-term issues or strategies, addressing particular interests of members and groups. These teams are formed to respond to special interests identified and driven by grassroots efforts. Action teams are organic and time-limited, supported by the Coordinating Board, and will dissolve when their project is completed. Some of the current Action Teams are working on: voting rights, women’s rights, texting, and other causes as they develop.
IMC is focused on amplifying the work of progressive activists across Massachusetts to transform the direction of our country, improve our democracy, and make our country a better place for all.
