Feeling helpless in the face of hate? Outraged by the obfuscation? Concerned about corruption? Join Indivisible Montgomery and your fellow Montgomery County residents as we work for diversity, inclusion, transparency, clean government, and the empowerment of all Americans through political activism. ​

At the February meeting of Indivisible Montgomery, Virginia Canter, Chief Ethics Counsel for Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW), will discuss:

  • The history of CREW and the work is doing
  • The breadth of Trump’s conflicts of interest
  • How CREW is taking the fight to Trump every day
  • What we can do to help

CREW is “dedicated to fighting the influence of money on our political system, [using] high-impact legal actions to target government officials who sacrifice the common good to special interests.”  Find out more at www.citizensforethics.org.

Following the main meeting, topic-specific committees (e.g., elections, corruption and conflicts of interest, science and the environment) will have the opportunity to meet in smaller groups. Guests interested in becoming more involved with Indivisible Montgomery are encouraged to visit with the committee leaders.

Admission is free. All are welcome.
