Indivisible Madison is a grassroots organization that uses the Indivisible Guide. We target members of Congress in Wisconsin’s 2nd Congressional district in order to hold them accountable and to oppose the Trump agenda.
Indivisible Madison is governed by a steering committee, which makes decisions for the organization, coordinates activities, and oversees the development of plans and strategies. The steering committee seeks input at our monthly assemblies. If you have any suggestions, ideas, or questions for the steering committee, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The members of the steering committee include:
Adam Wood- Lead Engagement Organizer
Adam Wood is at the center of IM’s efforts to organize a politically-engaged and undefeatable community of progressives. Adam is a husband and father of two living on Madison’s near east side. He’s a professional urban/transportation planner and believes there’s no such thing as a day too cold to bike to work. Active in his neighborhood and church community, Adam was drawn to Indivisible Madison by his sense of moral obligation to speak truth to power and work for the common good of all people.
Phil Petrie – Editor-in-Chief
Phil Petrie is a musician, producer, blogger, and IT professional living on Madison’s East side. Born and raised in Iowa, Phil spent nearly 10 years in New York before recently moving back to the Midwest where he lives with his wife Anna, his son Lucian, and daughter soon to arrive. Phil hopes to amplify the voice of concerned citizens and to broadcast a vision for the nation based on equality, inclusion, and prosperity for all.

Beth Alleman – Social Media Organizer
Wonder who’s sending those tweets at 2am? Meet Beth, our Social Media Organizer. She manages our various social media accounts, including facebook, twitter, email, and youtube. Beth is originally from a small western suburb of Chicago. She attended DePaul University, where she studied psychology and Spanish. Last year, she moved to Madison from Chicago so her boyfriend could attend med school here. She still works in Illinois for an assisted living company, with a focus on memory care. Her top issues are voter rights, quality of life for seniors with dementia, economic reform, and LGBT rights. She loves being a part of Indivisible Madison because it means she gets to work with some amazing people to help protect and fight for the quality of life of individuals across the country. She is excited to keep resisting with you all!

Linda is a veteran political activist and campaign volunteer. With a BA in political science and women’s studies, and 4-1/2 years as a legislative aide in the State Assembly, her knowledge and experience will be a great resource for IM.
