There is Resistance in Northwest Florida

Indivisible Northwest Florida is a chapter of the grassroots movement based on the principles outlined in the Indivisible Guide. We are dedicated to oppose the agenda of the Trump White House. We do this by pressuring members of Congress to represent their constituents and obstruct authoritarianism.

Guiding Principles

  1. We resist authoritarianism. President Trump is an authoritarian, and his administration is pursuing policies that aim to destroy our democracy and our civil rights. He is utterly unfit to be president.
  2. We pursue inclusivity. Working with organizations, coalitions, community groups, and individuals, we are vocal allies for marginalized communities.
  3. We welcome people of any political persuasion (or none!) who are ready to resist Trump. Our target is autocracy, not each other.

Save Pensacola Beach and Navarre Beach Petition

There’s a multi-billion dollar land grab moving through Congress.
The Senate is working on S. 1073, the Escambia County Land Conveyance Act. The purpose of the bill is “To authorize Escambia County, Florida, to convey certain property that was formerly part of Santa Rosa Island National Monument and that was conveyed to Escambia County subject to restrictions on use and reconveyance.”

Republican Representative Matt Gaetz has passed legislation in the U.S. House to sell off Pensacola Beach and Navarre Beach to private developers. The land is currently protected by a 1946 Congressional Land Conveyance that guarantees all leases on the beach belong to and must benefit the public. Gaetz' bill would take away these public land rights. Senator Marco Rubio has introduced the bill in the Senate, where it is currently in the Energy & Natural Resources Committee.

Oppose S. 1073 The Escambia County Land Conveyance Act

Call your senators to oppose s. 1073

The Senate is working on S. 1073, “To authorize Escambia County, Florida, to convey certain property that was formerly part of Santa Rosa Island National Monument and that was conveyed to Escambia County subject to restrictions on use and reconveyance.”

The House version of the bill, H. 2370, was sponsored by Rep. Matt Gatz, FL01 and passed on July 26th. Inexplicably, Sen. Nelson has co-sponsored Sen. Rubio's bill after opposing at least three previous versions. If this passes, Santa Rosa Island homes that are currently sitting on LEASED land owned by the citizens of Escambia County will be able to purchase that land and dispose of it at will, in whatever manner that individual sees fit.

Oppose H.R. 1215

The Protecting Access to Care Act of 2017, HR 1215, would dramatically undermine patient protections against malpractice and medical error. Because the bill would preempt any less-stringent state laws on malpractice, it would significantly alter malpractice law in at least 47 states. The bill would limit non-economic damages for malpractice to $250,000 and shorten the statute of limitations for malpractice suits. The bill would also ban patients from filing class action lawsuits against doctors that prescribe FDA-approved drugs or medical devices that cause them harm. This provision is particularly troubling given that a 2014 study found newly FDA-approved drugs have a 1 in 5 chance of causing adverse reactions in some patients.

Help Stop Trumpcare

The nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office (CBO) has now confirmed what the vast majority of Americans already knew: The Senate's Affordable Care Act repeal bill, the Better Care Reconciliation Act (BCRA), is a cruel, ill-crafted disaster. The CBO's analysis predicts that BCRA will leave 22 million additional people uninsured by 2026.
