Today MUSICIANS INDIVISIBLE, representing hundreds of concerned musician-citizens, had a successful meeting at Senator Gillibrand’s NYC office, in the midst of a #ResistTrumpTuesdays collective action.
MUSICIANS INDIVISIBLE will be an access point for music practitioners to be fully engaged in the process of government as social activists. We intend to hold our representatives accountable to our voice, particularly as it needs to be heard as a unified line of RESISTANCE to extreme, unjust, exclusionary or racist agendas.
Nine musicians gathered on 12/20/2016, still in shock over the election but determined to start a political action group to resist the incoming administration's extreme agenda. Inspired by INDIVISIBLE, a practical guide for resisting the Trump agenda, our group took shape with just a few people. As we went around the room our message and our organizational structure formed itself just by having our members identify what they were passionate about. We had no plan but it was remarkable how easily things fell into place.
