About the Indivisible Project:

Following the election of Donald Trump, a group of two dozen former congressional staffers and progressive advocates  drafted a document called “Indivisible: A Practical Guide for Resisting

the Trump Agenda.”  What is the Indivisible Guide? It’s a toolkit on citizen power, a set of local, defensive advocacy strategies and tactics for resisting the Trump agenda. Thousands of local groups have now formed in every congressional district in the country to put the guide into action.

The Indivisible Project is now transitioning from an all-volunteer effort to a 501(c)(4) organization to support the efforts of these local groups as they resist the Trump agenda. We are hiring immediately, with a preference for D.C.-based applicants.

How to Apply: If you are interested, please send your CV, cover letter, and salary requirements to  jobs@indivisibleguide.com with the position title in the subject line.

We are an equal opportunity employer and strongly encourage applications from people of color, women, the LGBTQ community, and other groups that have historically been subject to discrimination.
