Please join our team in taking action to protect our environment and stand up for science!


Mission Statement

Our mission is to resist the agenda of the Trump administration and promote an agenda that protects the environment and the role of science in society by affecting change through the political system at all levels of government. We care about all aspects of the environment and science, including but not limited to climate change, pollution, science denial, endangered species, and public lands.

Our group focuses on actions. We meet, discuss, conduct research, and inform each other always with the aim of coordinating and taking actions that will have maximum impact. Members can influence the focus of our group by taking the initiative to organize actions affecting topics they care about. We believe that actions taken collectively are far more impactful than actions taken individually, and so we believe in a deliberate and efficient process for acting as a group. We maximize our impact by providing clear directions for action to all members of our group and to all Indivisible Berkeley members.
