On Monday evening, February 13th, the organizers of the newly-formed Minuteman Indivisible Lexington group, Pete Tasker, Michelle Olson, Karolyn Eisenstein, and Jane Eckert, held their kickoff public meeting at First Parish. Despite the snow, 76 people from the Lexington area attended — 47 Lexington residents from outside First Parish, seven from surrounding towns, and ten from First Parish in addition to the organizers — all of whom are interested in resisting the erosion of the civil and human rights won over the past 30 years.
This new group is chartered to follow the Indivisible Guide, which provides information and tactics for use by citizens to influence their state and US legislators. The meeting agenda included orientation to the Indivisible national organization and its Guide, in-state advocacy planning, outreach to other Indivisible groups locally and across the country, morning coffee action, and introduction to the group’s Facebook page. A second public meeting will be held in two or three weeks at the Cary Library or the Lexington Community Center.
