About Us


Our Mission:

The mission of Indivisible Nashoba (IN) is to educate, motivate, and empower Groton area residents who want to resist the destructive agenda of the current administration, including threats to human rights, civil liberties, democratic institutions, and the environment.

We will accomplish this by developing and maintaining relationships with our Members of Congress, attending and organizing awareness-raising events, pursuing public relations opportunities, issuing calls to action, partnering with local organizations with shared values and goals, and coordinating with other Indivisible groups.

In all of our endeavors, Indivisible Nashoba will promote the principles of inclusivity, honesty, integrity, and nonviolence.

Our Issues


Protecting Human Rights and Civil Liberties

Happy, thrice happy shall they be pronounced hereafter…who have assisted in protecting the rights of humane nature and establishing an Asylum for the poor and oppressed of all nations and religions.George Washington
General Orders, 18 April 1783

Preserving the Integrity of Our Institutions

How prone all human institutions have been to decay; how subject the best-formed and most wisely organized governments have been to lose their check and totally dissolve; how difficult it has been for mankind, in all ages and countries, to preserve their dearest rights and best privileges, impelled as it were by an irresistible fate of despotism.James Monroe
Speech, Virginia Convention, 10 June 1788

Resisting the Normalization of Intolerance and Discrimination

Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly.Martin Luther King, Jr.
'Letter from Birmingham, Alabama Jail', 16 April 1963

Take Action


Here in the 3rd Congressional District of Massachusetts, we are represented in the US Senate by Elizabeth Warren and Ed Markey, and in the House by Congresswoman Niki Tsongas. They are already ahead of the curve in resisting attacks on civil liberties and human rights. So what does the Indivisible Guide have to say to us?

Congratulations! Your Senators and Representative are doing what they should to fight racism, authoritarianism, and corruption. They’re making the right public statements, co-sponsoring the right bills, and voting the right way. So how does this change your strategy? Two key things to keep in mind:

Do NOT switch to targeting other Members of Congress (MoCs) who don’t represent you. They don’t represent you, and they don’t care what you have to say. Stick with your own local MoCs.

DO use this guide to engage with your MoCs locally. Instead of pressuring them to do the right thing, praise them for doing the right thing. This is important because it will help ensure that they continue to do the right thing. Congressional staff are rarely contacted when the MoC does something good — your efforts locally will provide highly valuable positive reinforcement.Indivisible Guide
