In 2016, following the election of Donald Trump, two former Capitol Hill staffers created a Google Doc, mostly for their family and friends, that outlined ways to oppose the Trump agenda.  They called it the Indivisible GuideNot too long after that Google Doc went viral, the Indivisible movement was born. 

The document was a how-to manual for getting the attention of legislators, and organizing effectively.  Thousands of local, grassroots indivisible chapters formed across the country, including one here in Baltimore.  Just as the Tea Party had transformed politics years earlier, Indivisible activists sought to make themselves an unavoidable presence in the lives of Congressional Republicans and Democrats alike.
