Indivisible OC 48 is a non-partisan organization representing and empowering the residents of California’s 48th Congressional District
Indivisible OC 48 works to provide a platform for citizen activists to engage in efforts to ensure our elected officials uphold our values of anti-racism, inclusion, empowerment, equality, fairness, and the belief in a strong democracy. We provide leadership and tools for our members and outlets for action in response to any efforts to harm the inhabitants of our district and country, or reverse progressive policies. We help our members commend and support our elected officials when they work to advance these values and to hold them accountable when they do not fully represent constituents, or if they take actions which enable a culture of hate, denial of truth, destruction, injustice, or complicit or active advancement of the Trump agenda.
Our GUIDING PRINCIPles
We believe people have the right to receive equitable treatment and achieve their highest good.
We welcome people of all political persuasions who believe in the value of democracy, civil rights, and our diverse American cultural and natural heritage, and encourage unity across people and groups who hold these beliefs.
We resist authoritarianism and policies which seek to disenfranchise any groups of people or threaten our American environmental heritage.
We believe that the role of elected officials is to serve the interests of all of their constituents. It is the elected officials’ duty to genuinely engage with all constituents, including those who hold opposing political views.
We believe that peaceful protest is patriotic and a necessary tool to protect democracy.
