Welcome to the website for Indivisible MDI, home of the resistance on Mount Desert Island, Maine.

Indivisible MDI is dedicated to resisting corruption, racism, authoritarianism and their destructive effect on our democracy. We advocate for policies which protect our democracy and promote equity and justice for all.

Members come from every town on the island, and we welcome people who are living here temporarily, or who are here on vacation. Keep your activism muscles in good shape – join us for an event!

PAST EVENTS

Tell Me the Truth

Join us for a conversation between two friends to examine cross-racial issues. Shay and Debby are riveting. Their chats are unscripted and even they do not know where the conversation will take them.

On Monday, 9/10/2018, we joined with other Indivisible groups in Maine to sponsor ads in the Bangor Daily News and the Portland Press Herald opposing the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court.

Our April meeting featured a presentation by Chris Cayer of MoreVoice.org about Ranked Choice Voting. It is important for everyone to understand that the June 12 election will be using ranked choice voting for primaries AND will include a statewide ballot question about continuing Ranked Choice Voting in the future.
