Lower Cape Indivisible (LCI) is an organization whose members have elected to participate based on the organization's mission: to mobilize for social, economic and environmental justice; promote universal participation in the democratic process; resist agendas that subvert American democratic values. We are one of more than 6000 Indivisible groups in the U.S. committed to resisting the Republican agenda, as well as holding our state and local leaders accountable for fair and ethical action. Our work is based on the Indivisible Guide, created by former congressional staffers who wanted to demystify political activism, and share what tactics were most effective.

In the years since its founding, LCI has come to focus a good part of its energy on electoral politics - elections. Lower Cape Indivisible was founded in response to an election - the 2016 election of Donald Trump - so the electoral focus feels natural. It's also the case that the Cape hosts a number of organizations that are effective promoters of LCI's values - Cape Cod Climate Change, Cape Downwinders, Grandmothers Against Gun Violence, and so on - that concentrate on various strategies and particular goals. LCI's strategies to promote its vision and values in the political arena have grown to include the following:
Barring some unforeseen, dramatic development, it's likely that the political scene in general and LCI's efforts in particular will be fairly low-key during this coming summer of 2023. However, we anticipate that energy and activity will ramp up quickly in the Fall as candidates and issues campaigns prepare for the critical 2024 presidential election.
