Indivisible looks to become more visible

Group offers discount to movie matinee

The movie “Hidden Figures” begins Friday at the Webster City, and on Sunday at 2 p.m. Indivisible Iowa SD24/HD48 will be offering a $1 discount off of the regular ticket price.

“I have heard that this is an excellent movie,” group member Sara Trueblood said. “Leah Feltz came up with the idea of using the movie as a way for our group to be visible in the community. I think the movie will reinforce the idea that all of us are capable of doing great things.”

“Hidden Figures” is based on the true story about a team of African-American women who provided NASA with important mathematical data needed to launch the program’s first successful space missions

The Indivisible Iowa SD24/HD48 Facebook group was created by Mary Christensen Fortune and is comprised of Webster City and Hamilton County men and women. They describe themselves on their Facebook page as a group who “stand together for the protection of our rights, our safety, our health, and our families – recognizing that our vibrant and diverse communities are the strength of our country.” There are many Indivisible groups forming across the state of Iowa and nationally.

Some members of the Indivisible Iowa SD24/HD48 attended the Women’s March in Washington, D.C. and in Des Moines last week. These individuals were inspired to continue to work on sharing their voices and concerns with their local communities. The Women’s March encouraged those who marched and anyone else to initiate and complete 10 Actions in 100 Days. The first action occurred last Sunday; the group wrote postcards to their government representatives sharing their concerns about issues such as health care, the environment and many other topics.
