Indivisible Action Tampa Bay
 
 

Our Beginning

Indivisible Action Tampa Bay took root in November 2016. Known then as Action Together Tampa Bay, we saw a need for a new kind of progressive action, one that exists outside the party structure, bringing new ideas, new people and new energy to activism. A lot of us consider IATB the best thing that happened out of the 2016 Presidential Election. We've formed friendships, solved problems, alleviated frustration and found a way to make an impact on our community.

Committed activists. Caring people.

Our Mission

We fight for human rights through action, working to promote progressive causes and candidates in Tampa Bay, the state of Florida and the Nation. We are linked through the Indivisible network to our partner Indivisible chapters statewide and nationwide.

 

We are progressive patriots

We are thankful to have many progressive candidates in Hillsborough and Pinellas counties to support with our personal dollars, phone calling, postcard writing and door knocking. Progressive candidates are furthering our values by bringing progressive issues into the forefront. Issues like access to healthcare and education, preserving our environment, equality, diversity, protecting our most vulnerable, responsible transportation solutions and other goals that promote freedom and cooperation. 

We are open to new ideas. We make decisions based on evidence and facts. We believe in freedom, the responsibilities of individuals to help others as a foundation of society, and in cooperating to develop global solutions to solve global problems. We believe in justice. We believe in the greatness of our country. We are patriots.
