Our Story

Bergen Indivisible for Democracy (BID) is a New Jersey-based, volunteer, grass roots organization that works hand in hand with other social-minded groups to protect, preserve and advance shared democratic values. The group was launched from humble beginnings in February of 2017, in spontaneous response to the January 2017 Washington D.C Women’s March. With 45 Bergen County individuals gathered in a Tenafly living room, we brainstormed ways to create a positive impact in our community and beyond and moved to formally organize in loose affiliation with the National Indivisible. 

 

Since that exciting moment, BID has exponentially grown as a group to nearly 750 like-minded individuals of all backgrounds and experiences, dedicated to making a difference in the lives of people in our community, our nation and around the globe.
