Our Indivisible Training Team is dedicated to assisting Indivisible groups as they transition how they organize during this difficult time. That is why we are so excited to announce a new month-long webinar training series focused on how we can continue to organize in the time of COVID-19.
For the entire month of April, Indivisibles and partner activists will be able to dive into a plethora of topics such as building community via social media, deep canvassing during social distancing, and more. Each training will have two dates to sign up so you can make it work with your schedule.
So, without further ado…
Here are the trainings we have coming up:
|Using Social Media to Build Community and Take Action
Indivisible groups have spent years working to turn online activism into offline action, but the script is flipped in this new physical distancing reality. Come learn, from social media experts, how to transfer our in-person community spaces to online and virtual mediums. We will share strategies that can help your Indivisible group take advantage of existing social media platforms to keep momentum going in your community.

How to Facilitate Online Spaces that Work

Structural Inequalities that led to COVID-19
The COVID-19 outbreak affects everyone regardless of race, gender, immigration status, disability, or any other identity.

Come explore the historical context that set the stage for today’s COVID-19 reality and learn what we can all do as Indivisibles to build a new future coming out of this crisis.

Deep Canvassing While Social Distancing
We know that issue-based organizing is how we build local power, but how do we do that while social distancing? This training will take a deep dive into how to have meaningful conversations with folks without knocking doors. Come explore how to apply organizing basics to this ever-changing landscape.

But wait… there’s more!
To keep our spirits up during these trying times, it’s important that we find ways to gather as a community and have some fun. To that end, we are also debuting two SOCIAL opportunities this month!
First, a Social Distance Saturday online get-together on Saturday, April 25th at 8p EST.
This virtual get-together is a chance to connect with Indivisibles from across the country for some fun! Come enjoy music, laughter, and connection with Indivisibles from across our network for a little reprieve from the challenging times we’re in.
Second, a brand new Share Your Secret Talent Video Campaign to assist our movement in spreading more positivity and joy to the world.
We know Indivisibles are talented organizers, but what other secret talents do you have? Record a video highlighting a secret talent, this can be anything from a musical performance, comedy routine, dancing, yoga, or anything else that keeps you entertained while social distancing. Submit entries by April 19th for a chance to be featured.
Share your talents with the movement! Record a 90-second video highlighting your secret talent.
All right, Indivisibles. We hope you’ve been staying healthy and safe. As we all adjust together to our new normal and our lives change to mitigate the spread of the coronavirus and protect ourselves and our families, Indivisibles all over the country are rising to the occasion and showing that we know how to respond in the face of sudden, seemingly insurmountable challenges.
