Indivisible Ferndale began in early 2017 as a group of forty friends and neighbors in Ferndale, part of the nationwide Indivisible effort to resist the Trump agenda and the direction of our nation. We believe this is our time to assume the responsibility for our citizenship. We welcome all who share our vision.
